RCRP Rules said:
15.
Killing after a Robbery / Scam is disallowed, unless the victim accepts the kill via /do.




It is deemed to be highly unrealistic to kill / inflict deadly injuries to a person you earlier robbed, just to make them unable to contact the police later. Also, the order of mentioned actions does not matter - you are not allowed to rob a person you killed / inflicted deadly injuries to.
.
Those who are found to be breaching this rule will be warned and admin jailed, and the PK will be invalid.
A lot of players seem to be confused about this rule, so I'm going to attempt to clarify it a little.

The reason this rule was put in place is the prevent people ALWAYS killing the victim of a robbery once it is over. Robbers often do this so that the victim will loose all memory of what happened due to a player kill or character kill.



In real life, the vast majority of robberies DO NOT end with the victim being killed. By not killing a robbery victim, they are able to report the robbery to the police who can then investigate the incident. However if the victim is always killed, they are unable to do so which removes a lot of potential RP from the server. If the victim is killed, that's the end of that. There's practically no hope of their robber and killer being caught which isn't really fair.



In the real world, there are a lot of people who are perfectly happy to rob someone, perhaps even hurt them but wouldn't dream of murdering someone. Being a game largely based on crime and violence with no life changing consequences if you are caught by the police, the majority of RCRP players are ice cold killers who wouldn't think twice before pulling the trigger.

So to cut a long story short, this rule is for the welfare of the server, it creates a more realistic environment, more in depth in character situations and prevent robber killing their victims for no reason other than to wipe their memory which is ultimately powergaming.



There are however exceptions to this rule. If someone is being robbed and the robber has a good in character reason to kill their victim, whether it be a result of something the victim did during the robbery or during a previous incident, the robber is more than welcome to kill them. Reasons like "He called me a nigger" or "he dented my car" are pretty pathetic reasons to take someone's life. A good in character reason would be if they killed somebody close to you, attempted to kill you. in other words something big that actually gives the robber a good reason to kill the victim.

If there is anything about rule 15 you still don't understand, feel free to post questions.

Thanks a lot.

This will possibly expand the RP horizons after a player survives a robbery/scam.

Re: Clarification of rule 27

Yeah.. won't make any sense if you rob the person then kill him/her, you might aswell just kill them before you "loot" them :roll:
-But obviously against the rules so nvm. (or atleast not possible since no corpse is visible after death)?

What if it isn't a script kill, but an RP kill? Because, the Outback Bandit's signature is a gunshot to the chest. A gunshot to the chest IRL could puncture a lung or internal organ... What are your thoughts?

Always wear body armour vest. It will prevent the bullet going inside your body and injuring any organ.
Anyway, good explaination of the "rule 27".

It makes no difference whether it is a script kill or an RP kill.

You may not kill the victim after a robbery

Indeed, we could actually investigate this stuff.
