Text Chat
Newbie Chat The command /n is for support purposes only. This is not for conversations, nor reporting. Consistent misuse of this channel will result in a warning.

Rule Update: Deathmatch

OoYS8n5.png

Date Released: 01/18/2022

Hello everyone,

We have made a modification to Deathmatch to include pets there's a small modification at the top changing it from:
Deathmatch
Killing or attempting to kill a player without a valid roleplay reason is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. In cases where a player is killing FOR another player (e.g. orders, a hit) the burden of ensuring valid roleplay reason exists lies on the tasking player and not the one carrying it out. In these cases, players should ensure they are obtaining evidence of being tasked with killing another player and by who. The following are examples of killing another player that are NOT valid reasons:
  1. A player hit your car in a traffic accident.
  2. A player slightly insulted or disrespected you.
It is expected that all individuals of Mafia City Roleplay attempt to contribute to scenario building. There should always be a great deal of consideration before another individual's life is taken. Ensure the reasons you have for killing another player are reasonable. We want to avoid the "Dude hit on my girl" situations, as these will not be tolerated.

Rule Update: Killing On Sight

OoYS8n5.png

Date Released: 01/18/2022

Hello everyone,

We have made a modification to Killing on Sight to include pets there's a small modification at the top changing it from:
Killing On Sight
Killing or attempting to kill another player without valid initiation or without allowing sufficient time to respond to demands/roleplay.

When initiating on a person, there must be a weapon present and visible. This will give the player a chance to flee/defend themselves. If a weapon is drawn and aimed, A player must fear for their life. When initiating this should always include a demand and a threat, such as:
  1. “Get out of the car or I will pull the trigger”
  2. “Put your hands up or I will stab you”

When initiating on a vehicle you must have a gun drawn and aimed at the vehicle while on foot.
Examples of situations during which it is valid to initiate on a vehicle are:
  1. They are baiting around an illegal location or an active RP scenario, such as repeatedly driving around non friendlies with no sign of leaving.
  2. Their car is stopped and/or off.
  3. Their vehicle is actively evading or fleeing from you.
The following examples would be considered invalid initiation or demands:

  1. "Hands up or die"
  2. "Do X in 5 seconds or die"
  3. Killing a player for not complying with demands before a reasonable amount of time has passed unless the player is attempting to escape or resist.
  4. Initiating a scenario from a car.
  5. Initiating on a large group of people solo without backup.
Valid initiation is not granted on every character in a situation unless they are significantly involved and contributing. In cases where a player is ordered to shoot in a situation prior to initiation being met the ordering player is held liable and evidence must be provided showing this.

It is expected that all individuals of Mafia City Roleplay add to the overall immersion and character building. Valid initiation is required at all times prior to killing or attempting to kill another player. The requirement for valid initiation is considered waived in situations fitting at least one of the following criteria:

  1. Witnessing a character seriously harming or physically threatening the life of someone your character has close relations or group/corporation ties with. (exception made to PD who can assist anyone being seriously harmed.)
  2. KOS is not granted on LEOs unless you’re actively being threatened with severe consequences for your actions. (e.g. Police driving slowly on the outside of a scene / providing medical aid would not grant KOS). (Note: these changes do not mean allies can assist you if the LEO witnessed a Felony level offense. LEOs must return fire before your allies can assist)
  1. When an individual has reasonable suspicion that they are about to be arrested for a felony or it is specifically stated they are about to be arrested for committing a felony. Reasonable suspicion is determined by the reviewing Moderator to determine its impact on the roleplay environment.
  2. The individual is part of a group that has recently contested your group's Turf.
  3. The individual has shown that they are armed and are showing hostile intent around a groups Turf
This allowance for lack of valid initiation ends once the situation is no longer active. Interruptions greater than 5 minutes will require valid initiation to be done upon the re-initiation of a roleplay.
