When entering the roleplay server you are expected to design a character that is different from your true self and to play as though you are the character that you have created. Your behaviors and interactions on the server should only reflect the thoughts, behaviors and mannerisms of your character design.
Players must do their best to never ignore, disregard or intentionally avoid the roleplay of others. “Farming” or gathering resources is not a valid reason to avoid interactions. Always engage in the roleplay that is taking place around you, and if you absolutely must bypass a scene due to a prior engagement or personal reasons, take the time to give the player an immersive reason why and then move on. Failing to roleplay a situation is strictly forbidden.
You must value your life and the lives of other characters at all times, despite gameplay mechanics that allow players to respawn or return after being downed. Characters should always behave in a realistic manner, appropriate to the situation, especially those that may lead to injury or death. Never act in a way that indicates no value for your character’s life and survival.
In roleplay, all interactions should be driven by a narrative, and violent weapons should typically be the final option. “Character design” will never be an acceptable reason for ignoring server rules. Players found to be habitually resorting to violent or criminal acts, especially without interaction or willingness to roleplay with characters outside of their circle, may be removed from the server.
All roleplay must abide by our Community Code of Conduct.
Historical accuracy is not an excuse for violating our content restrictions.
There must be a clear separation between ‘in character’ (IC) and ‘out of character’ (OOC) behavior and knowledge. If your personal feelings begin to bleed into the roleplay, it is advised that you take a break from the server. If you continue to act based on OOC feelings, beliefs, disagreements or other information in character, especially in a toxic manner, we will be forced to remove you from the server.
Remember, your character is not you and anything that happens to your character is not a direct attack on your outside reality.
Players are required to follow any lore and continuity outlined for the server, despite character storyline, history or desire.
Roleplay and references to the following topics, both written and verbal, are absolutely not permitted and may result in a permanent community ban.
Permitted only in private settings with the consent of all parties involved prior to the scene.
Due to the emotional and graphic nature, acts of torture, dismemberment and mutilation, especially for the purpose of interrogation, are allowed only with the consent of all parties involved prior to the scene. Scenes that involve torture should also be approached with caution, and should be conducted in private where external parties are unlikely to approach.
Erotic content is not permitted on the server or community discord.
Sexual or Erotic roleplay (abbreviated ERP) is defined as any roleplay that focuses on sexual nudity, erotic actions, or depicts a sexual activity. This content is not permitted while on Darkside servers or in public community spaces. If your roleplay leads in that direction, either take it to external DMs or skip the live server scene.
