Although Rebel WoW will be nearly endless in it's roleplaying capabilities, it'll have a structure and fair system of rules set in place, which will punish the wrong-doers in Rebel WoW. These rules will be fair yet strict, and will above all us gaurantee our server the safest roleplaying enviorment that we can offer.
We are not one-sided people; we see both sides of the conflict and then make a valid choice based on any witnesses or evidence we may find. However if we find you in the wrong, you will be swiftly dealt with.
The rules are as follows:
1.) It is the policy of Rebel WoW not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, orientation or disability. Breaking this rule will result in a two-hour ban, and the second offense will result in a permenant ban on your account. We give no warnings for this rule - you should know not to insult someone at all, but this sort of thing will not be tolerated.
2.) God-moding or meta-gaming. I really can't stress enough that this is a simple rule; if you god-mode/metagame, you'll be given a warning, then a 2-hour ban on your account, then a permenent one. It's not hard to follow, so I expect everyone to abide by this rule.
3.) Be respectful. This is quite possibly the easiest rule to follow on the list. We, as the GMs, work extremely hard to make this server greater than before. However this doesn't mean you can disrepspect your fellow roleplayer. No, we expect respect shown to every roleplayer you meet.
4.) While ERP is allowed, you must be in a private area where nobody has to see it happening. Do it in whispers if you have to, but do not EVER even think about doing the deed in majorly-populated areas, unless they are empty. In addition to this, anyone stealthing, using invisibility or otherwise spying on RPers during these moments, will be punished if caught. A tip to keep your moments private is to use the '/who' command regularly to check for people in the area.
5.) The modification of cities or towns is now restricted to the administrator-level. Game Masters wishing to modify certain areas MUST ask permission of the administrator to modify zones, and must give a detail explanation for why they wish to do this, and what they'll be doing. This includes, but is not limited to, purging of cities, spawning massive structures and adding objects that could lag the server. The breaking of this rule will enact a 2-hour ban onto your account, and you .go spawn abilities removed.
6.) The Game Masters are here to uphold the law of the server -- however, they are not the bad guys. They should, and will be, treated with respect at all times. If you have a dispute with a Game Master, then it can be solved peacefully, without escalating to hostile means. If this occurs and it is your fault, you will be punished by the GM Council. However if the Game Master is responsible, you will be given a cordial apology and that GM will be punished.
7.) The chat channels were made for a reason -- use them correctly. Anything vulgar or sex-related goes into the Adult channel; if your looking for roleplay, then join the LFRP channel. Advertising for your guild? Join the Guild channel. Anything else can go into OOC, and again try and keep things in there clean and appropriate.
8.) Disputes among normal roleplaying characters can, and will be solved through whispers. These arguments are not to be shared amonst the roleplaying community as a whole, and this includes on the Ventrilo server -- if a peaceful solution cannot be made, then call for a Game Master and we will do our best to help you solve your problem with a clean, unbiased view on the problem.
EDIT: More to come.
