1.5 Hacking in any form is not allowed and will lead to a ban if caught.

1.6 If someone breaks a rule in some form that affects you please report it to an admin rather than break rules to get revenge. If you do then you’ll both be punished for the rule you broke.

1.7 Please report rule breakers to the admins using @ in chat.

1.8 Do not randomly kill people without proper reason (RDM). You must have a reason of RP or of logic. Insults are not good reasons. Self-defense is.

1.10 Do not randomly punch people (PW).

1.11 The decision of a member of staff is final. Please report them on the forums if you really believe they were wrong in some way and let us handle it.

1.12 Changing your job manually has no effect on role-play and will not be taken seriously. (E.G changing your job to Supreme Mayor as an inmate will not make it true and people should not be expected to go alone. Although some exceptions may be made in specific circumstances for RP reasons)

1.13 Do not metagame. E.G do not use out of role-play things (like a players name/job, OOC, discord, adverts, etc) in game.

1.14 Roleplay according to FearRP (E.G If someone has a gun to your head and you are unarmed you would likely do whatever they said)

1.15 Leaving to avoid punishment will only result in a higher punishment. The same applies to trying to avoid or hide from staff. Lying won’t help either.

1.16 Multiple accounts will only lead to a IP ban or all accounts being banned.
