Server Rules

Postby Rhicora Thu Aug 17, 2017 2:44 am

Forum & Discord Rules

  1. Do not post any explicit, gore or pornographic content on the forums.
  2. Harassing other users on the forum, in public or in private messages, is unacceptable. Be respectful of other users and promote a friendly discussion environment.
  3. Do not spam.
  4. Do not encourage copyright infringement or illegal activities. If you are unable to find a place to purchase a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2, or your CD-key does not work, please contact staff for assistance.
Server Rules

  1. This is an adult (18+) server. By registering to play here you understand that you may encounter mature themes, explicit language and violent roleplay. ERP and other sexual roleplay is allowed, but should be kept private and requires OOC consent of players involved. Characters should not be nude in public areas (e.g. the Tradeway, tavern common rooms). All characters will be at or above their race's typical age of maturity.
  2. Skullport is a roleplaying server. You must remain IC (in character) at all times upon exiting the OOC (out of character) spawn room and entering the game world. We expect guild recruitment, event announcements, etc. to be conveyed IC to preserve immersion. When OOC comments are necessary, use some identifier. Conventionally used ones are (( and //. ((example, //example
  3. Do not metagame or godmod (powergame). Metagaming is using OOCly obtained information ICly, such as calling someone by name because you can read their tag, though their character has not told you their name yet ICly. Godmodding is forcing your actions on another player unfairly or without consent. You cannot, for example, emote that your character knocks another character unconscious. You have to do this mechanically, with consent, or agree to some situational dice roll with the other player.
  4. PvP requires consent from the defender. Consent can be expressed via tell or by a note in your character bio indicating you are always open to PvP. "Hostile" must be set. The defender may always decline PvP, but must then resolve the situation by de-escalating to the satisfaction of the attacker, or leaving the area without further provocation.
  5. The consequences of losing in PvP are in most cases decided by the victor. However, if one side of a conflict intends for the story to involve irreversible or sexual harm, we expect both players to discuss the outcome and reach mutual agreement. If there is no clear agreement on consequences, the fallen character is incapacitated with memory loss as to who injured them. A PvP victor cannot permakill a defeated character without staff or player consent.
  6. Your characters must be played as though they do not know each other. You may not use alts to gather information for each other or carry items for each other (ICly or OOCly). You may not multibox - you should never be logged onto two accounts at once.
  7. Permadeath is a tool used by staff to impose risk and consequence on the server. DMs may hold events or plot lines that put players at risk, but will give players a warning, implied ICly and stated OOCly, that this course of events may be life-threatening. Certain characters, after thorough staff discussion, may have an assassination request approved on their characters. Both players, the assassin and the target, are at permadeath risk in this case. In very rare cases, particularly notorious characters may be placed on permadeath notice by staff as a result of their deeds.
  8. Report all bugs and exploits you find. As long as you're the one approaching us about the issue, we won't impose any consequences -- it doesn't matter whether you've used the exploit before. Rewards will be issued based on the severity of the exploit after it is patched.
  9. Skullport is set in the Forgotten Realms (3.5e), and the server strives for lore accuracy where possible. We believe players are most engaged when immersed in the setting they know and love, and so we ask the same of our players and their characters. If you are unsure about a certain character concept, be sure to ask our helpful community on the forums, or feel free to contact the staff if you feel more comfortable keeping it private.
  10. Harassing players ingame, on the forums, or via Discord is unacceptable. Real-world hate speech about race, gender, or sexuality can be a bannable offense. If you feel you're the victim of any of the above, take screenshots and do not hesitate to report it to admins or community managers.
  11. Certain classes that were restricted in past servers are not restricted here (Red Wizard, Warlock, Heartwarder...). You are free to create characters with these classes, but you are still expected to roleplay them appropriately. You are also heavily encouraged to create a biography for such characters, especially Warlock. Having a biography will help DMs cater to your character's unique circumstances (such as roleplaying your Warlock pact).
