Nazi Germany Roleplay 1943 - Rules
Written and edited by Walter, Tom, Hawk, Josef and Widmer.

Section 1 - General Roleplay Rules
1.1 - Character Names
Your character must have a proper roleplay name. This means that you must have a first name and a last name that is not mingy. Your name must be original - no names of historical figures or celebrities.
Suggestion: you can look up on google “german male names”


1.2 - Metagaming
You may not use information that you only know OOCly while you are in character. This includes the names/jobs of strangers. This includes calling for police using /911 or /request during a kidnap or using group chat to ask for help during one or other similar situations.
Example: raiding a base as Government Official just because you have heard cocaine being cooked in it

1.3 - FailRP
1.3.1: You must always remain in character on the server unless you are in an OOC situation (for example, a staff sit). You may only perform actions that make sense from an IC perspective. As this is a Serious RP server, any violations will be strictly punished. Look at the punishment list for common FailRP infractions.


1.3.2: You may not sit or jump on people's heads. That is considered FailRP.


1.3.3: You may not sit on vehicles using ALT+E, unless it is a) an event or b) permitted by the Server Management Team.


1.3.4: Minging or Trolling of any kind will result in a 2 week ban to a permanent one.


1.3.5: The act of Combat Baiting (actions solely done to provoke fights) is strictly forbidden. This includes putting up communist insignia in front of Government Officials, taking out your gun in front of Government Officials for no reason as a citizen, making it obvious that you are resistance or mafia etc.


1.3.6: Use common sense. if something wouldn't happen in real life, do not do it in-game. Semi-serous and nonsensical behaviour is considered FailRP. If there is a dispute about this kind of behaviour, the decision will be taken by the Server Management Team or the highest Staff Member online at that moment.

1.4 - RDM/RDA/RHC
1.4.1: You need a valid in-character reason to attack/kill/handcuff/arrest another player.
Example: as a Police Officer, you spot another player breaking the law, you have the right to detain and/or arrest him.


1.4.2: Resistance can not randomly shoot government officials/law enforcement agents/soldiers without a proper IC reason.

1.5 - FearRP
1.5.1: If a gun is pointed at you, you must do whatever the person with the weapon tells you (Safety does not count as gunpoint). An exception to this are unreasonable/FailRP demands.
Remember: if someone forces you to break the rules by pointing a weapon at you, they’re not allowed to and you should call a Staff Member.


1.5.2: You may not take a weapon out or disable your weapon’s safety while at gunpoint.


1.5.3: If you are in a car and you are at gunpoint, you must still abide by FearRP. Keep in mind the gunpoint does not affect all the occupants of the vehicle, but only the player that is the closest to the gunpointer.
Example: if you want to gunpoint 4 occupants, you need 4 players outside of the vehicle with their weapons pointed at the occupants.


1.6 - NLR
Whenever your character dies, he forgets everything that happened in your previous life. Do not return to the area of your death the NLR timer on your screen expires. (3 minutes.)
Remember: You are not allowed to come back after you die in your vehicle to pick it up, you must still abide by the NLR rule.


1.7 - Erotic Roleplay
ERP is strictly forbidden. Any and all ERPers will be permanently banned.


1.8 - Perma Death
If your character is killed during an event or an important situation in roleplay (i.e. after a trial), you may be forced to change your name and/or job.


1.9 - Fake IDs
Fake IDs are a feature used by classes that would normally be considered outlawed (Resistance, Mafia, Criminals etc) to conceal their identity from law enforcement. The only FakeIDs you are allowed to use are the jobs under the “Citizens of Berlin” category in the F4 Menu. You can use one like so:
/job Job Name
You need to substitute “Job Name” with one of the valid FakeIDs.
Example: /job German Citizen, /job Nurse


Not all jobs are allowed to use or spot Fake IDs. For a complete list, please check the Fake ID thread in the development section of our forums:
https://www.werwolfgaming.com/forum/m/30155425/viewthread/28548334-fake-id-rule/post/123880331


1.10 - Personal Vehicles as a Reich Member
NCOs and Enlisted Men of the Army and SS are not allowed to own/drive a car on their own. They either have to be ordered to do so or be driving an Officer around. Even if ordered a good RP reason needs to be given for it.
Section 2 - Out-of-Character & Chat Rules

2.1 - Feature & Third Party Program Abuse
2.1.1: Do not abuse server features or glitches. This includes World Effect Abuse, third person abuse, and sit abuse.


2.1.2: Do not attempt to use hacks or scripts. Doing so will result in a perma ban.

2.2 - Job Abuse & Self Supply
2.2.1: You may not change between different jobs for personal benefit (i.e. changing to a police job to release your friend from jail.)


2.2.2: As a weapons dealer, you may not purchase weapons for yourself.

2.3 - Chat Language
As this is an English server, English must be used at all times - both in character and out of character. However, you may use rudimentary terms in German for the sake of RP should you so wish. (i.e.: Calling your officer "Herr" instead of sir etc.)

2.4 - Communication and OOC behaviour
2.4.1: Do not disrespect or start arguments with other players or staff on an OOC basis. This includes OOC chat, sits, and private messages.


2.4.2: Flaming, as so to continually rant or cause flame in OOC is considered a punishment. If you have been told to be quiet by an admin and you fail to do so and flame, you will be punished.


2.4.3 - Leaving/Changing Name to Avoid Roleplay/Punishment
You may not disconnect from the server or change your in character name to avoid a roleplay situation or to avoid punishment from a staff member.


2.4.4 - Chat/Microphone Spam
You may not spam your microphone or any in-game channel. This includes in-character chat and admin chat.


2.4.5 - External Advertising
Do NOT advertise any personal projects (YouTube, Twitch etc.) without the permission of the Owner. This will result in a permanent ban.


2.4.6 - Group Chat
Group chat may be used as an In Character channel for long range communication and it is to be used as a radio transmitter for coordination, such as getting a unit to head somewhere for training. However, you may not use it to metagame. (i.e. calling for reinforcements during a kidnap, giving away your location etc).


2.4.7 - Personal Messages (PMs)
PMs should only be used for out-of-character messages. Sending in-character messages as PMs is considered metagaming.


2.4.8 - Printer/Ammo/Vehicle Bombing
You may not use printers or ammunition boxes to deal damage to other players. In the same way, you cannot blow up cars on purpose to start fires.

2.4.9 - Output and input devices
All of your output and input devices must be fully working. Your sound must be 100% working - if it is not, you cannot be a part of the RP and you must not access the server unless you have fixed the issue. You can use your keyboard instead of your microphone to communicate with players and Staff members.
If your sound stopped working suddendly, you can call a Staff member in-game and he will try to help you; remember, our Staff Team is not guaranteed to be a "technician team" and therefore you might have to solve the issue on your own.
Section 3 - Advertising Rules

3.1 - Advert Channel
You may only use the /advert channel to declare an event that requires advertising or to advertise a business that has been approved by the Ministry of Finance. The government may also use it to make server-wide announcements. Your name is hidden while adverting to other players, unless they are RSHA Agents (SD or Gestapo).

If the required amounts of players assisting the raid is not met in 5 seconds, the raid is voided.
Example: if you finish raiding a building, you cannot assist a raid to that specific building while the cooldown is active.


4.1.2: To raid a Government building (MB - PD - MOI), you require at least a total of 3 people in your group. You must all advert assist for the raid to be considered valid.

4.2.7: As a Kidnapper, you can strip the victim of their weapons. You can also, while keeping them under gunpoint, give them a radio and the possibility of saying something in the group/advert channels. If the victim fails with complying with your requests, it will be considered FailRP.

Exception is made for both Sturmbannfuhrers, as they know the information about all of their online agents.

If the Mafia/Resistance is arrested and tortured for information, they have a 10 Minute 'RP' window before they must reveal the information that is being requested by the Gestapo/SD if they know it.

7.1.4: Do not change your material at all. This includes using a grass or leaves texture and pretend it’s a camouflage.

7.1.9: You may only substitute the standard Mafia or Resistance playermodel with the following two models:
- models/player/lanoire_gray_detective.mdl
- models/player/lanoire_detective.mdl
but not with any other model.

Breaking any of these PAC3 rules will result in your PAC3 rights being revoked and a ban depending on which rule you broke.

7.2 - Car Rules
7.2.1: Do not put radios on your vehicle.


7.2.2: Only use vehicles which can be bought from the car dealer - do not make your own prop car.


7.2.3: You can not use the material / colour tool on your car.

7.3 - Tool Gun Rules
7.3.1: Do not abuse your tool gun access. This includes using tools improperly (i.e. spamming radios etc.)

7.4.2: Media played in the radio must be dated 1943 or prior to it. You cannot use re-adaptations or "remixes" of songs of that period of time: you must get the original record.

7.4.3: Placing the radio in a spot which is not normally accessible by the player spawning it in is forbidden. Courtyard speakers for Reich Officials are an exception for this.

Example: placing a radio really high up in/on a building is not allowed, or any spot you cannot reach yourself.
7.5 - Out of Character to In Character Rules
7.5.1: You may not use out of character information to form events such as coups or other events in game. Such things would include forming a coup in steam chats, discord and teamspeak (for example) only to arrive in-game and suddenly your character decides to participate in a coup with no planning beforehand. This rule also relates to mafia or resistance who organise things out of character. Doing such an act would be done so to break any kind of interference in character. I.e. Officers organising a coup without doing anything in-game means that in-character there is no way to punish them as they have not done anything in-character, only out of character.


7.5.2: You may not initiate, take part in or organize any sort of "investment", where a player gives an amount of money to another for him to "invest". Even though responsibility lies completely with the player giving away the money, we will not allow any sort of "black market" trading of money. Scamming, false advertising, Excessive Charging (Subject to our inspection without notice), Target raiding Protection Racketting (for any amount above the mug standard ) and harrasment/bullying for payment is strictly Not allowed. Any breakges of this rule will result in a Community wide unappealable Ban.

7.5.3: You may not trade in-game items (such as money) for any sort of IRL currency or item. Purchasing money in any place other than on our official store is STRICTLY not allowed. Any breakages of this rule will result in a Community wide unappealable Ban.

Disclaimer
Any issues that can not be resolved using these rules will be settled by the highest staff member online at the time. A Server Management Team member whose rank is equal to or exceeds Head-Moderator has the final say over these disputes.


If you have an issue with the conduct or performance of one of our staff members, please post a staff abuse thread on our forums instead of arguing in game. (http://werwolfgamingsite.enjin.com/forum/m/30155425/viewforum/5913030)


If you have any questions regarding one of the rules, feel free to contact a staff member for clarifications.
