  1. REDM Server Rules

    1) Respect the community: Very simple this one, don’t harass, bully or intimidate anyone else on the server outside of RP. We are all here to have fun, if you can not have fun without ruining someone else’s then you do not belong here. If a member of the Community Assistance Team / Staff notify you that you have broken a rule accept it and move on. Arguing on the spot will only see your punishment increased. Once you have had some time to think about it you can submit an appeal on the forums. ----------------------------------------------------

    2) Respect the Staff Team: If a Community Assistant Team member, Moderator or Admin gives you a direction then follow it. If you have questions or concerns about the direction please bring these up via the forums after the event. Directions from the staff team are not negotiable on the spot. Arguing with a decision or direction on the spot may see your punishment increased if applicable. Impersonating a member of staff is against the server rules and will see you punished. ----------------------------------------------------

    3) Your personal information is your personal information. If you choose to give out your contact details, photos or other real life information this is not BBRP’s concern or responsibility. We would suggest you think long and hard before you give out any of the above. ----------------------------------------------------

    4) Exploiting: Any attempt to use a server resource in a manner not clearly intended by the development team can result in an immediate permanent ban with no warning. If you find a bug or glitch please report it to the staff team via a ticket to avoid misunderstandings resulting in your account being banned. Rewards are also offered for those who bring this information to the dev team. Common exploits include: Duplication glitches, incorrect uses of finding ID’s and damage bugs. ----------------------------------------------------

    5) Community Etiquette: Do not advertise your own gaming communities, servers or other similar things without first seeking permission from an Admin. Always feel free to ask, the worst that will happen is you get told no. If you have a role that shows up on the discord sidebar above regular members please note we may temporarily remove your discord role if your active status shows another server or group. It will be returned to you afterwards (you can also disable this discord feature entirely via the discord settings) ----------------------------------------------------

    6) Age Restrictions: No character can be under the age of 18 without Admin permission. The server also has an age restriction of 14+ players younger then this may be removed from the server by staff. ----------------------------------------------------

    7) Reporting Misconduct: If you believe a player has broken a rule there are only two correct ways to report this. First, you can use DEL to collect the player’s id in game followed by a /report with their ID and details of the misconduct. Your report should include details! Reports that state “ADMIN TO ME” or “MY HORSE IS COOKED” will be ignored. Reports are only for reporting misconduct. Misusing this system may see you punished. The other method to make a report is via the forums using a general support ticket. Failure to use either of these systems, such as by DMing staff directly will be considered a rule breach and may see you punished ----------------------------------------------------

    8 ) Reporting Staff Misconduct: Staff are not exempt from the rules, if you believe a staff member has misused their privileges, made a mistake or otherwise not lived up to the role of a BBRP staff member. There is only one correct method to report this kind of conduct. That is to make an Admin Team ticket on the forums. DMing staff, arguing with the staff member involved or trying to spread rumours/cause unrest towards that staff member will be considered a breach of the rules. The only exception to this is that if your complaint is in regards to an Admin or the Lead Developer you should send these directly to Scar. Please make sure you are 100% sure that the person you are reporting is an admin BEFORE you contact scar. If they don’t have the admin tag, they are not an admin and you have broken this rule. ----------------------------------------------------

    9) Mature Themes: There is to be no sexual harassment, rape roleplay or any kind of Suicide RP on the server. Most of you are adults or young adults, if another player tells you that something is making them uncomfortable or to stop because your comments are unwanted you have two choices. Stop and keep playing here or find another server. Staff will be the final deciding factor on if a reasonable person would have known their comments were inappropriate or not. If you disagree with their decision please see Rule 2. ----------------------------------------------------

    10) New Life Rule: If you are downed in a roleplay (reduced to 0 health) and someone qualified to treat you does not arrive on scene within 20 minutes to revive you then you have forgotten all the events leading up to your death. This sometimes may include information about orgs, who was at a robbery and other such details. You can therefore not seek any kind of revenge for this and must pretend you do not know your killer moving forwards until you are reintroduced. This means no contacting the sheriffs, or trying to hunt down the person. If your excuse for seeking revenge is your friends told you then you need to be prepared to tell staff their names. If there is no evidence that your friends were present and able to pass on this information then they will also be sharing in your punishment. In short, don’t lie to staff and if you get killed don’t bother with revenge, go do something else for a bit. ----------------------------------------------------

    11) Riding/Driving: Riding your horse and driving your cart/wagon must be kept realistic. If you take horses or your cart/wagon inside buildings that it is not reasonably capable of such a manoeuvre then expect to be carded by staff. Your means of transport should be very important to you and it is expected you RP as such. ----------------------------------------------------

    12) Breaking Character: Remember the year is 1899 so unless you are talking to staff and staff have made it clear the situation is out of character you are not permitted to talk out of character and your conversations should remain relevant to that time period. If a staff member hears breaking of character, regardless of context they can punish you under this rule. OOC usage should also be kept for absolute emergencies. General questions or other such comments in OOC may see your comment deleted, repeated usage of OOC will see you punished. ----------------------------------------------------

    13) Metagaming: It is against server rules to metagame, if staff catch you metagaming you will be punished much more harshly than most other rule breaks regardless of your history so it is not worth it. Metagaming is the usage of any information your character has not found out in roleplay in game. This could include watching a stream or using discord communications or being told something from another player without hearing it from their character. One key thing to note is that if you have multiple characters your characters can NEVER share information with each other at all. This includes using a third person to “send” the information around. Staff will tolerate no excuses on this one. ----------------------------------------------------

    14) Powergaming: Powergaming is when you use unrealistic forms of roleplay, or refuse to roleplay in order to give yourself an advantage. For example, if there is a room or major obstacle between you and someone else talking, even though yes you as a player, hear it. Your character would not so you must ignore that information. Similar powergaming violations include using crosshairs, third person cameras to see things your “eyes” could not see etc. ----------------------------------------------------

    15) Fear RP/Valuing your Life: You need to give value to your character's life, while you may want your character to be the biggest baddest person in the wild west, BBRP does not permit this kind of roleplay on the server. Valuing your life is where you take similar caution in game to preserve your life like you would in real life (things like checking left and right before crossing a road). On the server this includes doing things like surrendering if a gun is drawn on you and you have no weapon drawn. Not running into other horses, not jumping off cliffs (claiming you are a daredevil is not an acceptable excuse) avoiding shootouts (don't run up to them or get in the way). There may be exemptions to this granted by staff to specific organisations which are allowed to flee instead of allow themselves (or their equipment) to be captured depending on the situation. This will be clearly communicated by staff if it is the case. Please ask staff before you assume you have an exemption as that will not be accepted as an excuse. ----------------------------------------------------

    16) Posses: All organised crime posses have to be approved by the Admin team over 4 personnel. If you want to join one of the preapproved posses please contact them directly however if you want to run your own then you will need to submit an application when staff announce a posse is up for auction. Further if you want to run a criminal organisation please submit an application on the forums however please note we do not intend to have a lot of organisations on the server. We would rather have 3 orgs with 5 people in them then 10 orgs with 2 people in them. Which means you should try joining a pre existing org first before applying to create your own. To apply to run an org you must be whitelisted. ----------------------------------------------------(edited)

    17) No mic, no play: … I don't think I need to explain this one. However the only exception is that if you have a reasonable excuse as to why you can not use a microphone please create a general support ticket on the forums detailing why this is the case and an exemption may be made for you. (this can include if you are unable to physically talk). ----------------------------------------------------

    18) No Discrimination: Our community is built on respect and inclusiveness for people from all walks of life. Do not make any discriminatory remarks on someone's race, gender, gender identity, sexual preference, health issues or disability. Just because we missed a category of discrimination here does not mean you can not or will not be punished for it in game. Staff will have the final word on if a reasonable person should have known their actions were inappropriate. ----------------------------------------------------

    19) Roleplaying Injuries: If you get shot, are involved in a horse V horse accident, fall from a high place or do one of the million and a half things that could get yourself hurt you are required to roleplay these out in a fair and reasonable manner. This means if you are shot, even if not dead you need to roleplay the pain and injury from the wound. When the “medically trained” personnel arrive you can not simply state “I need a revive”, you should go the extra yard. (Bonus: People who are creative and follow this rule are usually fast tracked into getting approval to be whitelisted). You can not “respawn” mid RP either, if you are downed and your respawn timer ends but there is still a roleplay where you currently are then you need to remain on the scene until revived, taken to physicians office by someone else or the scene clears of its own accord. Coming out of a major incident or fall with only a bruise or scratch will see you punished. The staff team have the final say on what was or was not a reasonable injury so please make sure you are considering this carefully. ----------------------------------------------------

    20) Safezones: There are areas on the map designated as safe zones (you can not use weapons or attack in them). If you try and shoot into a safe zone to exploit this it will be considered a rule violation. So will trying to use a safe zone to harass others by running back into it to avoid the repercussions of your actions. Please exercise common-sense with these, failure to do so will see you punished by staff. ----------------------------------------------------

    21) Random Death Match: It is against server rules to attack another player randomly without engaging in some form of verbal RP first. Killing someone should be your final option, try kidnapping, threats or other such RPs first. Be creative. If staff believe that you have not attempted all other forms of RP prior to attempting to kill a player then you will be punished under the RDM rule. ----------------------------------------------------

     

    Disclaimers: These rules are subject to change overtime. Please be sure to review the rules regularly in the event of additions or changes. Streaming Terms of Service: BBRP can not be held responsible for you complying with any TOS of any streaming or hosting service you use. Replacement of items lost: BBRP will not replace any items lost in game due to theft, server restarts or other issues. Admin means admin: Anywhere above where it says you need admin approval means you need admin approval. Not Moderator, Dev or CAT team members. Please ensure you are going to the right team or any approval you may gain may not be valid.
