    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 around or within a reasonable line of sight/proximity of 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 or performing non-roleplay behavior while using them. This includes but is 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.
      • Reckless operation of vehicles in an excessive manner that endangers your life or lives of those around you without a valid roleplay reason.
      • Performing unrealistic maneuvers on vehicles that shouldn't be able to perform them (e.g. Driving quickly on rough offroad terrain using a drag bike or super car OR driving up excessively steep hills that no vehicle should be able to handle.)
      • "Stunt Jumping" a vehicle isn't permitted. Stunt jumping is the act of jumping a motor vehicle.
    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. No individual has the ability to pause any form of roleplay or attempt to do so for any reason without direct instruction from a Staff Member. This includes using out of character (/b) to complain about a situation.
    7. Committing crime in areas that tend to be heavily populated during the day in a manner that shows clear disregard for potential consequences is not permitted. Effort should be made to shift illegal roleplay to private areas where possible. This includes but is not limited to:
      • Mugging a player in the middle of the street in downtown Los Santos

      Committing crimes during active turf contesting or claiming is not considered in violation of this rule, so as long as proper roleplay and initiation leads up to the situation. All parties involved must still display reasonable fear of consequences (e.g. Not initiating a claim attempt if uninvolved witnesses are present).
    8. Combat Logging, also known as disconnecting in a situation is strictly prohibited. In accidental cases such as losing connection/crashing, players are required to reconnect or make reasonable attempts to contact involved parties if unable to do so such as posting in #mcrp-general on our discord within 10 minutes.
    9. Failure to roleplay injuries adequately, including but not limited to:
      • Getting into a major vehicular crash and acting as if nothing happened. This may be overlooked if all parties present agree, however, we encourage players to roleplay these situations.
      • Jumping off a 3 story building and running off as if nothing happened
    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 or attempting to kill 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 or attempting to kill another player without valid initiation or doing so without allowing sufficient time to comply with demands. The following are examples that are not permitted:
    1. "Hands up or die"
    2. "Do X in 5 seconds or die"
    3. Killing a player for not complying with a demand before a reasonable amount of time has passed UNLESS the player clearly attempts to escape or resist in response to the demand. As a "reasonable amount of time" can change drastically between various demands, this is up to moderator discretion as to whether a reasonable amount of time was afforded or not.
    It is expected that all individuals of Mafia City Roleplay add to the overall immersion and character building. Valid initiation must be done.
    MetagameMixing of out-of-character information or information obtained out-of-character 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.

    General Rules - Roleplay
    Rule NameRule Explanation
    PowergamingRoleplaying an action that is unrealistic, forcing an action on another player, or enacting certain play-to-win tactics. You are required to give all players a sufficient amount of time to respond to roleplay, and in return all players are expected to respond to roleplay in a timely manner. Powergaming includes, but is not limited to:
    • You may not force death (Character Kill) of another character in a roleplay situation
    • You may not respawn in an active situation where medics are confirmed as being on the way unless a minimum of 20 minutes has elapsed, or your character has been finished (Reference bullet 5)
    • Refusing to respond to roleplay actions (/me, /do, etc). Including but not limited to offenses that stall or prevent roleplay.
    • Providing false information in roleplay responses via the /do command.
    • You are required to respawn once the timer permits if other parties have completed sufficient roleplay that would consider your character to be dead. Sufficient roleplay is required - You are still expected to value another individual’s life. Examples of acceptable finishing:
    /me leans down towards the man, thrusting his blade into his heart.
    /me aims his firearm down towards the man, pumping a single round into his chest.
    Robbery LimitationsYou may only rob an individual's cash on hand and 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.

    For the purposes of New Life Rule, death is defined by respawning. Being revived by a medic is not considered death as you are transported to the hospital and resuscitated. Death by respawn is not considered a character kill, meaning opposing characters involved in the situation may still use information from that situation against you. Death by character kill is considered actual death of your character, resulting in removal of all associated situations with that character.
    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.
    Paypal / Donation Charge BacksAny chargeback intiated towards Mafia City Roleplay will result in a community-wide ban, without notice. You may only appeal this ban by canceling the dispute and will be required to pay a $50.00 USD Administrative Fee.
    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.
