    General Rules - Roleplay
    Rule NameRule Explanation
    ImmersionCommitting actions or assisting with the committing of actions that break, lesser, or fracture roleplay is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. These actions include the following;
    1. Committing crimes in areas such as Medical Centers, Police Stations, State Buildings, Banks, or similar areas without a valid roleplay reason. Crime may not be initiated in these areas it may only be a continuation of previous roleplay. Attacking, raiding, or attempting to assault these buildings will not be tolerated.
    2. Using any form of a vehicle for a non-roleplay reason. This includes but not limited to;
      • "Finishing Taps" is the act of seeing an individual with very low health and tapping them with your vehicle to finish them off, and/or to knock them down without cause.
      • "Vehicle Death Match" is the act of attacking another player with your vehicle without a roleplay reason.
    3. Failing to value your own, or another individual's life. (Examples below)
      • An individual must fear their life if there is a firearm aimed at them.
      • An individual may not commit RP suicide unless they are Character Killing.
      • An individual is expected to still be fearful if they are in a vehicle or not.
    4. Failing to value, or use proper voice communications for roleplay. This includes but is not limited to;
      • Trolling, flaming, or insulting another community member in-game.
    5. Failing to use or the misusage of character identities. This includes but not limited to;
      • Failing to use the proper name format of "John_Doe"
      • Using celebrities names.
      • Vulgar language in a name.
    6. "Stunt Jumping" a vehicle isn't permitted. Stunt Jumping is the act of jumping a motor vehicle.
    7. No individual has the ability to pause any form of roleplay for any reason without direct instruction from a Staff Member. This includes using out of character (/b) to complain about a situation.
    8. Commiting crime in broad daylight without a valid roleplay reason is completely unacceptable. Effort should be made to shift illegal roleplay to a private area.
    In-Game Microphone UsageOur goal is to provide the most immersive environment obtainable through Grand Theft Auto V, we believe that microphone regulations will assist us in our goal.
    1. Community members are required to have an audible microphone. Interference, echoing, muffling, background noise or using voice changers is strictly prohibited.
    2. Community members are required to use Push-To-Talk at all times.
    3. Community members are prohibited from playing music, sound effects, sound clips, and/or soundboards.
    4. Community members are prohibited from creating undesirable sounds which include but not limited to;
      • Farting, Belching, screeching and/or screaming.
    5. Yelling, Screaming, or escalating the normal sound level of an individual's voice is strictly prohibited unless a situation calls for it.
    6. Usage of a microphone is required for all roleplay. (Playing as a 'mute' is not permitted)
    7. Usage of racial slurs is not permitted.
    DeathmatchKilling a player without a valid roleplay reason is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. The following are examples of killing another player that is NOT a valid reason:
    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.
    Killing on SightKilling another player without valid initiation. The following are examples of initiation that are not permitted:
    1. "Hands up or die"
    2. "Do X in 5 seconds or die"
    It is expected that all individuals of Mafia City Roleplay add to the overall immersion and character building.
    MetagameMixing of Out-of-character information in-character is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. Statements such as "If I were a keyboard", "If my hands were a mouse", "If this is a game I would" or similar statements are strictly prohibited. Questions should be redirected to discord or on our forums.
    PowergamingForcing an action on another player, or failing to give another player enough time to respond to roleplay.
    Robbery LimitationsYou may only rob an individual's cash on hand an items within the inventory. You may not rob police officers for any for of weapons.
    Revenge Killing (E.g. New Life Rule)When you die you forget everything leading up to your death. Unless you have a valid roleplay reason, you may not return to the scene of your death for 15 minutes. This is to prevent the ruining of scene roleplay. You may not rejoin the roleplay scenario that you died during.

    Death is defined by respawning, being revived by a medic is not considered death.
    Gross RoleplayGross Roleplay is strictly prohibited in any public setting. All players included in this roleplay must express their consent before and may revoke their consent at any time during the roleplay. This includes:
    1. Dismemberment
    2. Rape, Sexual Assault, and Molestation
    3. Incest
    4. Necrophilia
    In-Character Sexual Harassment is not covered by this rule.

    General Community Rules
    Rule NameRule Explanation
    ThreatsThreatening a member of the community that is on an MCRP platform such as server, discord or forums is entirely unacceptable. Exceptions can be made for situations that are not on an MCRP Platform such as if the situations pertaining to threats to release confidential/personally identifiable information or if serious threats of bodily harm to a member or their family members are made.

    Serious being defined as more than just a simple comment (e.g., I'm going to kick your ass for this) but one that drags on and continues with multiple threatening comments, the reporting party must tell the individual to stop, that they are uncomfortable or that they are in fear for their life. They will also state that the situation will be reported if it persists. In the instance that the aggressor continues in this situation, Mafia City Roleplay will be forced to take action in the situation and punish the user for threatening another community member.
    Leaking Unpermitted InformationThe intent of the release of confidential information, personally identifiable information or link-able content to Community Members is strictly prohibited and will result in an immediate ban.
    AdvertisementsAdvertising of another community, project, or page directly relating to another community is prohibited. To clarify you may speak about another community but not advertise.
    Intercommunity Community BehaviorInsulting, bashing, harassing, threatening, or leaking community content of another Grand Theft Auto V community will not be tolerated.
    Forum Rules
    Forum BehaviourHarassment, flaming, trolling, attacking or slandering community members is strictly prohibited, as well as any other consistently disrespectful behavior.
    Complaint and Ban Appeals specific rules
    ResponsesYou may not post on a complaint or ban appeal that does not directly involve you. No individual may involve themselves in any manner into a complaint or ban appeal that does not directly relate to them. (E.g. "He did it to me before too! But I have no proof!")
    Mob MentalityMob mentality is something we try very hard to steer clear from, and as a result, no individual may "I enjoy this idea/I dislike this idea", "Support", or "agree" in response to a complaint or ban appeal.
