Welcome to our server! We hope you enjoy your time here with us. It is each player's responsibility to read and understand our rules. Failure to do so will result in the staff taking disciplinary actions against you. The rules are simple:
No Griefing, No Stealing Griefing, stealing, and general thievery is not allowed on the server.
No Hacking/Cheating/Multiboxing Any form of cheating/hacking will be dealt with swiftly. This includes the use of macros, autoclickers, bots or other programs used to keep yourself online leveling a skill. You can have a max of 5 alts that you are using to do DIFFERENT activities at the same time, but you may not load up multiple clients all linked together to do one repeated action (example: 10 alts all sync'd up mining at the same time).
Chat Rules No chat spamming, CAPS TALKING, drama or sensitive discussions (religion and politics spring to mind immediately). While we aren't your babysitters, we won't sit by idly while you're being a jerk in our chat either. If someone (anyone) asks you to stop talking about something, it's best to just take it to private chat channels or private message. Don't bring your drama onto our server. We are also NOT a PG-13 server. Fully expect adult topics, discussions and humor. If you have a child playing on this server, it's your job to monitor their online activities, not ours. Don't get pissed when you see raunchy discussion on their screen. We are not internet babysitters.
No Begging or Whining Seems straight forward enough but here's the break down. Don't ask for free stuff. Don't ask for spawned stuff. Don't ask for hand outs. Don't ask for others to buy you stuff. Don't ask for teleports, created items, etc etc. Be self sufficient.
No Discrimination/Sexual Harassment/Threats/Suicide discussions We don't care what race, gender, or sexual orientation you are, and nobody else should either. Treating others badly for no other reason than that they are different from you is not acceptable here. Along with that, we will not allow sexual harassment to take place here or threats of bodily harm to someone OR to yourself. We do not need discussions relating to suicide or suicidal thoughts. If you're suicidal, please call 1-800-273-8255
No Impersonating Staff Do not portray yourself as any member of our staff under any circumstances - ever.
Do not ask for staff positions We pick our staff based on activity, helpfulness, and willingness to put others before themselves. If you're interested in becoming staff here, you'll have to put the time in and show us you have what it takes to be part of the staff. DO NOT ASK for staff positions. Staff posistions are EARNED by being helpful to other players, being online frequently and by following our rules.
Do not cyber stalk our staff members We all need a break from our "jobs" in game. Our staff uses downtime from the server to recharge themselves and come back to us ready to help people with problems. They will play other games, use other servers, watch tv, etc during that time. Please respect that. Do not track them down online to harass them in any way. If they invite you to join them during that downtime, great! If not, leave them 100% alone to enjoy whatever they are doing.
The following two items aren't rules, but security related information to help keep you 1) out of trouble on our server and 2) safe online and at home.
Don't give out your personal information!!! In a nutshell, we want you guys to remain safe and secure while on our server. Please, please, please be super careful before giving any information to someone. You never know who you may be talking to. If you feel like someone is trying to get your information, report it to ANY staff member immediately if you feel uncomfortable! Additionally, be careful joining voice chats that are not hosted by our server as there will be none of our staff available if you need assistance.
Your Account, Your Responsibility We log every action that is taken on the server by our players. Please be aware that if we have a report of griefing, harassment or other rule breaking, that we will punish the account, regardless of if it was you or someone else on the account when the problem happened. We strongly encourage you NOT to share your account information with other people since their actions may end up with your account banned on our server.
Use the help request system We have no issues helping any person on the server, but we do ask that you adhere to our help policies. Use CA Help chat to ask for help with general questions. If that fails to resolve the issue or you need more in depth help, you will be directed to use /support in game and open a ticket. If that takes too long, you may also use the contact us form here on the website and that will go directly to both owners.
You have 100% control over who can access your build area by using your settlement permisisons for both your citizens and your allies.
It is YOUR responsibility to protect your area from harm. Fences/locked gates are a great way to keep people out of your stuff, even without a deed!
Please build at minimum 50 tiles away from any neighbors you may have. Nobody wants someone building right on top of them! Leave space for each of you to expand. At minimum, discuss with your neighbors what they have planned so you can avoid conflicts and plan accordingly!
Deed Citizens and Allies are exempt from being accused of griefing. Chose both carefully! Only invite people you know & trust!
You must provide at least 48 hours for the person to move out of your settlement. Keep your chat logs with time stamps in case of dispute.
If you are asked to leave a settlement, you may destroy your personal home in that settlement but no other buildings. We'd prefer that you make the deed mayor the new owner of buildings, gates, doors, etc before you leave the settlement just to avoid drama and potential conflicts.
You may claim as much land as you have upkeep for.
You may deed over resources (tar, clay, peat, moss, etc). First come, first serve. If there's no tiles available, create your own.
You may pick sprouts and harvest from trees on undeeded land anywhere on the server unless it's in a locked, fenced in area.
Items that are laying around on undeeded land can be picked up and taken by anyone. Please don't be a douche about it though and take something from someone standing right there working. If there's obviously a person in the area working, move along.
We encourage you to LOCK anything you want to keep. Make a cart, get some bsb/crates and put your stuff away. We will NOT replace items that you do not secure.
Do NOT cut down trees or terraform within 50 tiles of someone's deed without getting their permission. Remember, that is their home and they picked the areas for a reason.
We strongly encourage you to rename items. Put your name on anything that is important to you so that if it's lost, we can try to track it down.
Please do not make LAND BRIDGES. Build a boat or make a bridge. If you put in a land bridge, just expect it to get destroyed once we find it since this will impact players using boats to travel with.
Abandoned Deeds: We may periodically get requests to review abandoned deeds. Those should be handled by Arch/Devs only. Players can submit a /support ticket with the coordinates and one of us will check it out and make a decision. The general rule will be 91 days of inactivity for the owner of the building PLUS 51% damage showing on at least 1 panel of the structure. At day 91 and 51% damage, we will reassign buildings to a new owner after a deed is set up nearby. Buildings can then be destroyed or kept as the new owner deems fit. Items inside the structures will be placed in a named wagon, and brought back to Parnassus for the owner to retreive if they log back in during the next 90 days. Wagons will be named with a date/name of the previous owner. The entire wagon will be offered up for auction at the end of those 90 days to the higgest bidder. Contents will not be listed prior to bidding. Blind auction. You may get great stuff, or utter junk.
Items outside of buildings on abandoned deeds are FREE to whoever picks it all up and takes it home with them. However, LOCKED items outside will be treated as if they were inside and be placed into the wagon along with the contents of all buildings.
Unique Creatures: Unique Creatures (Dragons, Drakes, Goblin Leader, Forest Giants, etc) will be killed as players group together to take out those dangerous monsters. The staff will NOT be involved in this process however, we will make sure that looting is fair to everyone if there is a problem (use /support to report problems). Here are our hard rules on unique kills:
Everyone present at the kill can roll on loot that drops
If a dragon/drake is the creature killed and you are the winner of the corpse, you may do /support in game to have a gm recolor the gravestone used to bury it.
Date/Time/Location (with map preferably) posted in forums at least 24 hours before scheduled event.
The hides/scales that you get when the drakes/dragons die are yours to keep. If anyone demands that you hand those over to make armor, report it immediately. We do not condone or support this type of game play as it harms the economy.
Allowed Mods: Compass Mods, Improving Mods, Toolbelts, ESP are all allowed on this server. If that makes your gametime more enjoyable than we will gladly allow those mods to be used. However, IF we find that you as an individual are harming the economy in any way at all with those mods, then we will request that you specfically cease and desist with a warning that if you continue with the questionable activity that you may end up banned.
Server Events: Periodically, we will host server events for our community to participate in. These will be a mix of scheduled and spur of the moment events, ranging from silly to difficult. If something about our event bothers you, simply don't participate. Items that are given out at those events may or may not have any significant value and we reserve the right to decide what the prizes are, not the players.
