What is RolePlay?
Roleplay is a way of gaming. The word already says what it means. You have to play a role. For
example, you play a drug dealer. You will act like a dealer in-game. You talk like a drug dealer, you act
like a drug dealer etc. Whiles you are playing a drug dealer, other people might be a police officer or
boxer. This way we create a ├óÔé¼╦£world├óÔé¼Ôäó.

What is metagaming?
Metagaming is mixing IC and OOC information.
First, what is IC and OOC.
IC stands for In Character. So that├óÔé¼Ôäós the drug dealer we were talking about earlier.
OOC stands for Out Of Character. That├óÔé¼Ôäós you, the man behind the computer basically.
So mixing IC and OOC info is called metagaming. An example:

You see a guy, with some text above his head.
Jason_Mendez (31)
So, now you know you see a guy called Jason, and he has ID 31. This info is OOC, since people don├óÔé¼Ôäót
have their names above their head in real life.
So if you talk to the man, you will say: ├óÔé¼╦£Hey man, what├óÔé¼Ôäós your name?├óÔé¼Ôäó
Saying stuff like: ├óÔé¼╦£Hey Jason!├óÔé¼Ôäó is metagaming. You don├óÔé¼Ôäót know his name. (Suggesting you never met
him before).

What is Revenge Killing [RK]?
During the time playing on our server, you might get killed by a guy. There are a few rules around
├óÔé¼╦£dying├óÔé¼Ôäó in-game. First of all, you don├óÔé¼Ôäót die. You get critically injured, and you will be transported to
hospital. Second, you lose all your memories.
So, back to Revenge Killing. Revenge Killing is not allowed on our server. If you get killed (Critically
injured) by some guy, you lose your memory. When you wake up in the hospital, you don├óÔé¼Ôäót
remember how you died, or who killed you. So you can├óÔé¼Ôäót run back to where you got killed, and kill the
man. That├óÔé¼Ôäós Revenge Killing.

What is Death Match[DM]?\
Death Match, is killing people without any Roleplay (reason). So basically, it├óÔé¼Ôäós just walking up to
someone, take your gun and kill him. If you want to kill somebody, you have to RolePlay this. So,
for example. You walk to the guy and say: 'Hey you idiot, why did you ram my car?'
The guy will answer, and you get into an argument. The man hits you with a baseball bat,
and you decide to take your weapon and kill the man. Now you have a reason for killing him.
So don't walk around and kill people randomly, or expect to be prisoned/banned.

What is Powergaming?
Powergaming is doing unrealistic actions. Like: /me takes his superman suit and flies to the moon.
This is not realistic, and considered as powergaming. Powergaming is NOT allowed.
Powergaming is also forcing somebody to do something. It├óÔé¼Ôäós hard to explain, but some examples will do.
Imagine, you are arguing with somebody. Then you decide that you are going to use a /me command.
Example: /me takes a plastic bag, pulls it over Who_Ever├óÔé¼Ôäós head and kills him.
This is powergaming. You are forcing the player to kill himself. If the player doesn't want to kill himself, then he will not die. (He won't die by that anyways)



So, I hope I helped you with this thread. Have fun in-game, and try to be the best RolePlayer the
sever has ever had! ( Besides me, and Alec Rae of course )​

Good job. This will hopefully help the newcommers to learn to RP. And keep people from DMing.

I suggest to make an advert with this site on the server , most of the people don't know what RP stands for and should inform themselves here.

That would be pretty cool, however it would just cause more work for Alec/Scripters. They do enough work as it is, and /forum works IG.
