** NEWLY WIPED ON 11/12/18 ***
We added a few rules and took a few rules out; all to encourage RP. WE have now divided the map into three territories. We are in the process of electing Kings/Queens over their territories. Each territory has two native religions associated with it. If a person chooses to live in an area with a native religion then they should be able to do so with no issue or no prior approval. However, If they choose to live in an area where their religion is not native to the land they live then they will have to RP that situation out with the King/Queen of the land.
In addition, we have introduced character aging. When a character reaches approximately 90 days an Admin will change their name to include “!”s. So, for example, “Conan” would become “!Conan!”. Once that happens that character is to be considered an elder and thus can no longer take the harsh lands we all live in and thus his next death will be a permadeath.
With the addition of the aging system we are also introducing an “heir system”. Before a character dies, they can create a “will” leaving all their belongings and gold to their new character.
In addition to all of this, we now have a very robust and active custom economy where members earn gold daily and have the ability to set up NPC vendors to sell their own wares.

Many people call what happened to these lands as a purging of the World. The citizens of this area did not worship their Gods as they should of. The God’s, vengeful as they can be, decided to come to this mortal plane and remind us what they were capable of. They devastated homes, temples to themselves and others, they did not care. They did not war with each other. They came with one mission, to destroy. Certain individuals stood up to these God’s. The High Priests and Priestess, the ones with enough power to do so, confronted their God’s. They pleaded with them to stop. Some taking up arms against them, others, using their healing ways, attempted to limit their harm. No matter what their tactic, rest assured that every High Priest was doing whatever they could to appease their deity.
But, The God’s did not stop… until they were satisfied. It did not matter what the priest did or asked. This lasted for a few seasons until suddenly… there was peace… the Gods stopped their destruction. The Gods held an unprecedented meeting in which they brought all the exiles together. They pulled forth the Priest and Priestess that tried to appease them and in front of everyone they smited them with their wraith! They then turned on their followers and did the same. The gods wiped out nearly three fourths of the population.
The Gods then turned towards the people and said “It is a new season! Whom among you is strong enough to replace the most devote of our followers?”
The Exiles were hesitant, they just saw the most devote of their family, friends, and community members get smited by the God’s. How could they possibly follow in their footsteps? How could they appease the Gods when their leaders could not? Then slowly, one by one, members of their community started stepping forth to claim this position. The first was to stand was a Daffari by the name of Tahu. He gave a speech and the followers of Yog rallied behind him. The nest to stand was the first female, Azzura. She gave a speech and the followers of Mitra rallied behind her. Then Scall Copperjaw stood, and the followers of Ymir rallied behind him and began to follow him. No one (yet) stood up for Set, Derketo, or Crom.
The followers of Yog, Mitra, and Ymir looked up to their new High priests with confidence and with excitement! It was clear that their bravery and faith was unquestionable! The three High Priests went their separate ways and began to build small communities where their followers can prosper and worship their Gods at will. As for the followers of Set, Derketo, or Crom… well, they are still lost, separated, feeling abandoned. Maybe one day a great leader will step up and unite them as they did for the other Gods.
Server Ruleset: Server Ruleset:
Staff Authority: (1) No admin shall abuse his/her power for themselves or for their friends. We are all responsible for what we do and we will all be reprimanded equally. Admins are held to a gold standard. If an admin is found to be abusive, negligent, derogatory, cruel and unusual, or corrupt: he/she will be brought before a jury of their peers and put through the same reporting process. (2) All rules, regulations, and changes to the community will first be processed through the community. However, the Admin team will make All final decisions (3) Directions issued to players by community Administrators are to be followed immediately and fully. Should an Admin request your presence on Discord or within a private channel you must respond to this request. (4) Do not attempt to impersonate, undermine, lie to or deceive a member of the admin team. (5) Staff is authorized to use any means necessary to catch rule breakers as long as it does not include utilization of cheats/hacks. (5) Administrators are allowed to punish players for actions not listed in this rules page, as long as they consider the action or players behavior to be damaging to the community, gameplay, role play, or community image. (6) All decisions are made with a minimum of 2 admins providing input and are considered resolved. (7) If at anytime you feel an admin decisions is unfair you may file an appeal to have the decision reviewed by the entirety of the admin team. After investigating, the admin team will take a vote to see if the original decision is to be overturned. This ruling will be deemed as final and no additional appeals may be filed concerning this ruling
Communications: Microphones are required to play on our servers. You must have a clear working microphone. “Hot mic,” echoing and voice spam are not permitted and you will be asked to fix it. Voice changers are permitted as long as the voices are kept realistic. Players must always remain in character while in game. Players repeatedly breaking out of RP saying things like “just joined the server”,"OOC", “I Just died” “google how to do…” should be reported so this behavior may be addressed. Excessive use of OOC will not be tolerated, it breaks the current RP situation
Cheating and Exploiting: This community employs a ZERO tolerance policy for utilizing any cheats or known exploits to gain an advantage in game. This includes but is not limited to hacking, duping, and/or scripting. You may never utilize any circumstances, exploits, broken game mechanics, or bugs to your advantage. Any player with knowledge of a player utilizing any third party modifications MUST report said player to the Admin team ASAP.
Powergaming: Forcing a particular role playing style on other players or forcing any permanent status effect on other characters without explicit permission. This includes scarring them in a visible place, removing body parts or otherwise permanently harming them. (Please take screenshots or video to avoid future “he said - she said” scenarios and complicate drama.} Character mutilation must be agreed upon by both parties prior to its initiation and the resulting injured player must continue to role-play out the disability for the remainder of the characters life.
Metagaming: Implementing Out-Of-Character (OOC) information into your In-Character knowledge. This is often used to score an advantage for the character’s benefit, whether for malicious intent or for other gains. This includes utilization of information gained from the journal posts on discord/forums and the usage of player nameplates to identify someone you have never met. You may not use other forms of communications unless approved through server rules/admins. This includes Stream sniping or other similar means of gathering information.
Bleeding: One may not Take the emotions and issues that your character has towards another character or incident and project them out of game and onto the players whose characters were involved.
Character Bios: Although not a rule, it is STRONGLY encouraged that all members keep a character bio to help facilitate character immersion.
Permadeath: A player must notify an admin stating that their character has died prior to creating a new one. Players who are making new characters are not permitted any ties to their previous characters or story lines they were involved in. Admins will claim the base to destroy/pick up. The loot will be dropped on ground, finders keepers. An announcement will be posted on discord so its fair game. For example, you can have whatever rp reason to go loot an abandoned home. The player begins with a completely new character accompanied by a new background and no knowledge of the area or its inhabitants. Players DO age and die (see character aging)
Kill on Sight (KOS): Members may NOT attack a player straight after seeing them with little to no interaction. This includes the usage of lethal traps placed in public areas. Killing another player should always remain an absolute last and final resort!!! Note* this is not a PVE community and you can still die within RP situations so caution is always advised.
PvP Initiation: To engage another player(s) in any malicious or hostile action, you must make your target aware of your presence and indicate a conversation or action orders you wish the initiated party to perform over in-game microphone or VOIP. You must state your intent and give clear instruction to the victim should you turn hostile. This should be done by giving the victim a clear command as well as clearly indicating what you will do to them if they do not obey. Should they disobey this initial order they should be given a second and final warning provided their action caused no threat to the initiator.
Self Defense/Utilization of “Deadly Force”: A person may defend themselves, by any means, without warning, if they are in Imminent Danger - A hazard that puts you at immediate serious risk of death or serious physical harm. This includes (1) Pointing a weapon at a character (2) firing warning shots, (3) usage of explosives in proximity to players (4) any other time in which the player thought their life was in danger(edited)
Hostages: Those who control the freedom of their victim(s) must do everything in their power to keep their victim(s) alive and in relatively good health. The victim(s) may only be killed if they do not comply with demands after a reasonable time, if they pose a direct threat to the aggressor or attempt to flee.Hostages must be left with a reasonable chance at survival. Bandits are to provide sufficient food and drink to allow for the victims survival while under their care and for a reasonable time afterward. Hostages are to be defended from all hostile threats including environmental as well as other players. Hostages must not be released without some way to protect themselves. Victims may also be executed (permadeath only if both parties agree) if there have been several hostile incidents like firefights or torture between the parties in the past.
No Value for Life: An aspect of unrealistic role play where characters approach situations showing no care for one's character. Role-playing them on a basis that “Oh. I can just respawn and come back.” type of attitude. During role-play please treat each respawn as your last and that your character's life is precious during role-play, if you have been cuffed and detained telling people "oh it doesn’t matter just kill me, I'll just respawn" breaks the roleplay for the person who has you captured. Players are expected to interact with the world as they would do in real life. Always take caution when meeting new players in game as you don't know their characters and will be unsure on what might happen. You must value your life always. Act as if you are really in your character's situation.
New Life Rule: If you die to another player then your character loses memories surrounding the event that led to your death - that means running back to your body or the area after dying is forbidden. However, you keep the knowledge about your group, friends, enemies and other people that you've met before that event. If you die, you are not allowed to return to the grid where you died before a minimum of 30 minutes have passed. Characters are not permitted to return to the area or group they were role playing with so long as the RP is still active. Characters that die in combat are not permitted to reenter the combat area if the combat if it is still in progress. This includes returning to a base that is being raided. If you were KOS'd the New Life Rule is still in effect. Do not take revenge for a hostile act that happened before you died, including but not limited to the person and/or group that killed you. New Life rule does not include PvE deaths (as long as the PvE death was not part of a PvP action)
Base Raiding/Defenses: For a standard base raid, players must first have a legitimate reason to raid the base. If so, they must post a minimum of a 24 hour notice on discord and/or the forums under the heading “Raid Announcements.” This notice is to include, the name of the player/group who owns the base (if known), the location of the base being raided, the starting time for the raid window, and the in-game roleplay reason behind the raid. If the admins feel there is insufficient information in the raid posting or feel the listed roleplay would not constitute the severity of an attack that a base raid entails, they may postpone the raid until additional parameters are met. Once a player has been declared as a raid target, they are not permitted to try to circumvent the raid by changing bases. After a player’s base has been raided, no raids will be permitted to occur to that player for a period of 7 days unless that player declares a raid against someone else.
POIs: Players may not block any POI nor shall they hinder anyone from accessing that POI; nor should they prevent any important NPCs from spawning(edited)
Point System: All rule violations will result in points being awarded to the offender. If that offender reaches 10 points it may result in a suspension from the server; if they reach 20 points they will be banned from the server
Gods: A Player/Clan can only follow one God and thus have one shrine of said God and no other shrine of other Gods
Clans/Tribes: To encourage RP, at this time, we are limiting clans. Anyone can make a clan but it MUST be associated with a God and is STRONGLY encouraged to have the blessing of that Gods High Priest. All tribe names MUST include the name of the God they serve. The High priest of that God is responsible for ALL tribes under that Gods name regardless of their current diplomatic relations. A tribe can have a max of 10 members
Character Aging: On (or around) a characters 90th day their name shall be changed by an Admin to include “!”’s (for example “Kether would be “!Kether!”. Once that happens, the next death, PvP, OR PvE, for that character will be a permadeath. Once in admin changes a characters name to include the “!” it can NOT be changed back. A character can choose to change their name to include “!”’s at anytime. However, in doing so, they voluntarily agreed to permadeath their character on its next death.
Heirs: Before a character experiences a pemadeath (s)he can create a “will” (simple statement on discord) indicating they plan to leave all their belongings/gold to a new character they plan to create.
Kings/Queens: A King is in charge of an area of ore-determined land. Kings ARE not responsible for individual rule infractions committed by members in their area BUT they are responsible for making sure RP is progressing. A Kings primary RP responsibility is to welcome any new members. In addition, outside the game, Kings will serve as “mini Admins” meaning they will be a liaison between the Admin team and the community. There fore they will have more responsibilities including but not limited to (1) welcoming new members both ingame and on discord (2) helping with recruitment by regularly bumping recruitment posts (3) attending or designating someone to attend ALL server events
