Rules:

• Age Requirement for the server: 15+

• Your name in game should be something realistic, Example: W. Striker (Not following this rule could lead to a kick from the server)

• Being or breeding toxicity in any platform can have you removed from the community, if you have an issue address it properly, not in ways to create drama or be negative.

• A working mic is required to play on the server. (You may not play music through your microphone at any point.)

• When in game you must stay in character at all times. If there is a problem, roleplay out the situation to the best of your ability and then bring it up to staff in discord.

• Metagaming, Powergaming, and RDM are not allowed.

◘ Metagaming: Purposely using or relaying information which your character did not learn in game. (Twitch streams/chats and Discord Channels included) to shape in game roleplay.

◘ Powergaming: Roleplaying outside of your character traits, abusing mechanics, and using means not actually in game to gain an advantage such as:

• Not using /me to notify information to people of something they should notice. Example: If a cop or medic /me checks over your body – you should reply /me has stab wounds if you were stabbed.

• Not realistically fearing for your life when you are threatened with weapons or sever harm from other means.

• Generally stay true to your physical character. Example: If you are old, overweight, disabled, etc you should always have your physical “level” in mind. • Jumping around to gain speed or boost your character in a situation.

• Hearing someone talking while far away, outside of their car with windows rolled up, outside of a building ◘ Random Death Match (RDM): Attacking another player/group without any story or reason leading up to it.

• Animal Roleplay is not allowed unless you intend to not talk. Animals don’t talk.

• Armored Vehicles are not to be used, however this does not include armored trucks for things such as Bank Truck transports.

• Vehicles with guns or that are otherwise unrealistic are not permitted to be driven.

• Hitman roleplay is not allowed without proper rp, if you are hired to kill someone do not just randomly shoot them. Have rp leading up to it.

• During Priority Cooldown or Priority Hold you may not run from the police or do major crimes. There is to be no shooting of any kind. Note, police can still interact with you but you cannot run from them.

•New Life Rule (NLR): If you are downed or respawn using /respawn your character forgets all events leading up to being downed in the current scenario. (You may not respawn if you’ve been advise EMS or LEO is on the way to your scene.)

◘ If all LEO units are downed they may respawn and respond to the call as a “New Unit”

• Stealing LEO or emergency vehicles is only allowed if the door is UNLOCKED, you must also be involved with the rp scene. You cannot steal a police just because you want to.

• Kidnapping LEO is not permitted at any point unless there is proper rp and backstory leading up to it. You cannot kidnap them randomly.

• Cop Baiting is not tolerated. If a unit is not responding to your call or not pulling you over they may be busy. Deliberately breaking laws in front of a cop over and over could lead to a kick/ban from the server.

• Unrealistic driving is not allowed, you must drive as if it were real life, not as if it was GTA Online. Example: Driving a sports car 200mph on dirt and jumping 200 feet in the air is unrealistic. Guidelines:(edited)

• Characters: When creating a character you are not just putting a name on a model. Also consider:

• What are the personality traits of your character? Shy or confident? Lazy or hark working?

• Give your character some strengths and weaknesses and think about how your character would react to things based on those traits.

• What is the background for this character? Where do they come from? While this does not have to be very detailed putting some thought into this will make it easier to roleplay the character.

• Remember to stick to your character’s traits, you’re playing the life of this character so their experiences should let your character evolve. Let certain actions have lasting effect on your character.

• Your character shouldn’t be involved in everything and anything. If there is a new thing you’d like to do or new personality traits you’d like to try consider making a new character. Your character shouldn’t be a Millionaire CEO-Gangster-Lawyer-Rambo-Killer-Hitman who tries to be involved in all of the criminal groups.

• Once a character has reached or failed to reach their goals it might be time for that characters story to come to an end, consider creating a new character and either killing off or exiting the other character within RP. Interactions While playing on USRPC players will interact with people from all walks of life. From government officials and law enforcement to small business owners and various types of criminals. The goal is for players to provide each other with an immersive experience and add to each other’s stories.

•With EMS:

• If you are downed (by accident or a victim of a crime) you must wait for police or EMS to arrive. When help arrives both sides should strive to provide good scenario for each other. EMS will act in a professional manner during the situation and the civilian will roleplay out their injuries to the best of their ability. Use of /me to provide extra information of vitals and injuries is encouraged

•With Police: •Police will behave in a professional manner towards the public and each other while the public will provide a base level of respect you’d generally give police. Be mindful of when in police custody, and provide info through the use of the /me command for police to use in their investigations.

• When a player is downed or put in handcuffs by police they are considered being in police custody. Once in custody the current crime or pursuit scenario is over and switches over to an arrest/investigation scenario.

• During an arrest/investigation scenario friends of the person(s) under arrest may no longer interfere and civilians not needed for questioning or involved should leave the area. Crime Here are some things to consider when making a criminal character.

• Build Up and Pacing: don’t just rush in to be a master criminal on day one. Let your character make connections and learn how crime works in this city before making big moves like robbing banks or taking on potential rivals.

• Heat: criminals should be mindful of the attention from police their actions may generate. Give yourself enough time between your crimes for things to cool down. You should expect to get more police attention, longer jail times/fines, and investigations if you repeatedly commit crimes in a small time frame.

• Criminal Hierarchy: eventually your character may learn or come in contact with the structure of the criminal world. All criminals had to work their way up in this structure at some point and this climb can be a very important part of their story. Making connections in this world will help evolve your story.

• Conflict: While some organizations and criminals may work together from time to time conflict is expected. Territory, resources, consumers, and power will drive many of these conflicts. Conflict and cooperation both help make stories interesting. Make sure to have good amounts of both. Avoid large alliances that never allow for conflict. Environment.

• The setting for our storylines is the State of San Andreas and the counties within it. It’s a state made up of several million people with your characters being a sample of the people in it.

• While your characters may vary depending on what you prefer the State of San Andreas will act and should be treated as a realistic state. A lot of the balance for a character may come from this. Example: If a player decides to make a psycho killer and go on a spree the player should expect this type of character to be short-lived and once caught to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
