You must read and agree to these rules to gain access to the server. Be respectful to all players (in and out of character) Be respectful to Staff at all times Impersonating Staff in or out of character is forbidden and will result in a community ban No slander of the members of the community in ANY fashion (this includes streams, DM’s, and Discord) Racism, hate speech, and sexual harassment of any kind will not be tolerated In-game /OOC is for immediate help, not general talk (we have a guide to help you in Discord) In-game /OOC is considered OOC information Stay in character at all times, even when a server rule has been broken This is an ENGLISH-only server Hostile scenarios (i.e. robberies, shooting, anything that could lead to shootouts, etc.) are not allowed within 15 minutes before or after a storm as this is to allow for RP preparation One property PER PLAYER (not per characters) DO NOT DM ANY STAFF without their permission. Please use the create-a-ticket system in Discord for help from Staff The usage of @everyone and @here is not allowed unless you are Staff METAGAMING Metagaming is defined as purposely using or relaying information that your character did not learn in-game (Twitch Chats and Discord Channels included) to shape in-game roleplay. Purposely using or relaying information that your character did not learn in-game (Twitch Chats and Discord Channels included) to shape in-game roleplay Actively sitting in Third-Party VCs or chats (i.e. Twitch chats, stream sniping, Discord DM's or VC's) and communicating about what is going on around you while being in the server will be considered metagaming and will be punishable up to 1 week ban You may not use the player list to narrow down suspects for any incident; players are expected to act under the belief that locals are citizens and are just as likely to commit a crime/cause an incident as a player character would. Anonymous telegrams are anonymous and cannot be used against individuals unless the sender themselves makes their identity known in their telegram message. FAIL RP While in the county (in-game/in-character), players should be respectful of other players’ immersion and all attempts to remain in character should be maintained. If you require Admin assistance, move to a non-public area, type /report (reason) and wait for assistance. Breaking character and saying things such as, but not limited to: Fail RP, Metagaming, Power gaming, "I’m reporting you", or any other variation of language that would not be used on a regular basis in 1899 is strictly prohibited. Saying phrases in county that would not have been said during the 19th century is considered Fail RP (i.e. LOL, simp, PTSD, etc.). As a criminal, storing your gained items from a robbery and then turning yourself in for the crime is Fail RP. Purposely running into a robbery that is in progress is Fail RP. Once someone is down, they are down and you are not able to dictate what injuries the player has (however, injuries sustained should be reasonable to the encounter). If you have been injured, you are expected to roleplay your injuries as realistically as possible. The in-game pinboards and scenes should not be abused, should not contain any OOC (out of character) information (i.e.: Discord names, Twitch usernames, Steam information, etc.), they must try to be as in-character as possible, and they must be reasonable (e.g. you cannot leave a scene that reads building burned down when the building is clearly still there). Using OOC information or inappropriate terms for the time period in telegrams is Fail RP. Anything inappropriately posted in-server will be evaluated under these rules and removed at the discretion of Staff. If you feel you’ve been treated unfairly, make an Admin ticket in the Discord. FEAR RP (NVL - no value to life) You must value your character's life at all times. You should treat your character’s life as if it were real: you only have one. Putting your character's life or another player's life in the line of danger without a reasonable RP explanation for doing so is considered Fail RP. EXPLOITS Abusing any game mechanic, server mechanic, or using any 3rd-party apps or add-ons to gain an advantage (e.g. physical screen markers, or any type of assistant for shot placement, crosshairs, etc.) are not allowed. Using the ragdoll feature to break free from ropes is an exploit and will be punished if abused. Please do not abuse the pick bush feature while on the back of a horse. COMBAT LOGGING Intentionally disconnecting from the server while engaged in any active RP scenario to avoid its outcomes is combat logging and not allowed. On a crash or server restart, all attempts should be made in order to return to an active RP scenario, or it must be resolved on Discord. Force respawning while still involved in an active RP scenario is combat logging and not allowed. Giving up while in ropes in order to respawn to remove yourself from the scenario is combat logging and not allowed. If you are part of an active RP scenario, or on the run from deputies or another player, you are not allowed to log off for 30 minutes. POWER GAMING This is the act of forcing or gaining an unrealistic, unfair action over another player without giving them an opportunity to interact, defend, or escape the situation. Any act that causes the player to be able to avoid the use of items etc. will be considered power gaming. Any act that would permanently change a character (e.g. losing a finger, losing an eye, etc.) should not be forced on a player with no alternative options. Group size during an active RP will be a maximum of 6 people (e.g. if you have a group of 10, then 4 will have to sit out that interaction). Deputies are not limited by group size. The only exception to the limit on group sizes is while defending gang territory, gangs are not limited by the number of members that can defend from attackers. Gang territory and hideouts can be requested via a ticket to Staff demonstrating RP intent, activity in server, and making the case for owning it. If, while hogtied, your character becomes free/stands up/ragdolls, you are to remain in place to be tied again as this is a game issue and cannot be used as a method of escape. You may not kill a person, revive them, then kill them again. You can NOT go off someone's voice or horse to figure out who they are in RP, however, we want to encourage people to be smart about disguising themselves (i.e. wear a mask, change your horse/voice/clothes, use a code name, etc.). Combat logging is not allowed for 30 minutes after the active scenario. You must choose between robbing someone and killing someone, you can not do both . If you have started searching a person, you can not change your mind to then kill them. Using the telegram system to verify whether someone's name is "real" is not only power gaming, but metagaming, and is prohibited. RDM (Random Death Match) RDM is classified as incapacitating another character without a valid RP reason/roleplay taking place or without proper re-initiating RP before incapacitating them. You must state clear and reasonable demands to an intended target, and allow reasonable time (more than 2 seconds) for the target(s) to comply. Proper re-initiating RP is defined by at least 5 minutes since last initiating hostile RP (this is the wild west and things didn't happen as quickly back then) Senseless killing of Locals (aka NPC characters) or domestic animals without RP is considered RDM Running a character over with a horse or wagon without initiation, or without stopping to help when it was a mistake, is considered VDM, vehicle death match, and will be treated as RDM LASSO Lassoing another player counts as hostile action and requires initiation before being used. If you are being lasso'd and have a knife on you, you can use the knife to cut free from the lasso (as long as your character can do this reasonably safely). Players are not to break themselves free once hogtied ("hogtied" is defined as: on their belly with their hands tied behind their back). If, while hogtied, your character becomes free/stands up/ragdolls, you are to remain in place to be tied again as this is a game issue and cannot be used as a method of escape. Only after 15 minutes of being left alone or abandoned, you may break out of being hogtied. HOSTAGE RULES A hostage is a player or players that have been removed from their own line of RP by force, brought to a new location, or held against their will for an extended period of time. You cannot take a player hostage when they cannot reasonably defend themselves. All plans and activities should be pre-arranged before taking a hostage. You cannot break free of ropes until you have been abandoned/left alone for 15 minutes. Remember that being hogtied and unable to move for extended periods of time is not too fun or enjoyable, so please keep that in mind if you are going to force this RP on another player and consider keeping them involved in the RP and in dialogue. PVP ROBBERY You must choose between robbing someone and killing someone, you can not do both (perma death is at the victim's discretion) You cannot kill a player if they comply with reasonable demands Demanding someone to give “Everything they own”, is not a reasonable demand You are not allowed to camp outside or inside of any legal job location that is marked on the map in attempts to rob players You are not allowed to camp outside of any menu for any store/clothing/stables/telegrams marked on map in attempts to rob players If you are part of a robbery (robber or robbee) you must follow ALL SERVER RULES You are not allowed to pocket wipe the people you are robbing You are not allowed to take everything but one thing If you rob somebody but leave food and water and a weapon to defend themselves then this does not count as a pocket wipe You may only steal the weapons that are visible on a person Putting guns/items/cash away to avoid having them stolen in an active encounter will be considered Power gaming NLR (New Life Rule) If you hold E and respawn, you may not remember all details of what happened but you may remember slight details such as some clothing, a voice, or what horse they were riding. Do not engage in hostile RP within 30 minutes after respawning (holding E) with the same person/group that killed you. Engaging in hostile RP 15 minutes after a revive from a doctor will be considered as "Fail RP" as you will need to roleplay all wounds that were sustained. Being revived by a Doctor is not considered NLR. PERMA No player can force another player to perma their character(s). When the player uses /me perma or /me no pulse and completes the RP scenario, they should logout and the character slot then must be deleted upon re-joining the server, or else it is considered "Fail RP". Transfer of any items or cash to another player before perma is considered "Power Gaming" and "Fail RP". DUELS Duels that are initiated by both parties understand the loser of a duel will die and their characters will be perma'd Duels must have at least 1 doctor and 1 lawyer present at the start of the duel REQUESTING HELP Receiving help for in-game issues and technical issues can be done through Discord in one of the listed channels below, Not through general chat. Create a Ticket Discord Support General Support Redm Support Defined Terms RL : Real Life IC: In Character Perma : For role playing purposes, it refers to a Player character being killed in an RP/IC (Role-Play/In-Character) sense. This death of a character, if the Real Life (RL) player chooses, can be permanent, hence permadeath. The player should not log on as the character if they have declared this for that character ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS THE SERVER GROWS/DEVELOPS
Communication, chat and general conduct. The use of unlawful, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, racially, ethnically, politically charged or sexually derogatory language toward any other player or staff, including real life threats or personal accusations is not permitted. As a community with a diverse range of players, kindly speak and post without the use of vulgarity. We have zero tolerance for harassment or verbal assault towards any staff members. There is no reason for any player to ever verbally abuse a staff member, and it is expected that you will speak to them with respect. We hold our staff to the highest standard, including how they interact with our players. While we understand that no one is infallible, disagreeing with a staff member’s decision is not grounds for being rude. If you disagree with a staff member’s decision, or were the victim of verbal abuse from a staff member, the ONLY correct course of action is to file a report with a Admin on our Discord : https://discord.gg/VnpAX4YwQq Excessive spamming in chat is prohibited. Filling the chat window with messages, typing in all capital characters consistently and constantly, and/or relaying the same information in a repeated fashion are all included in the definition of spamming. Consistently using incorrect channels in-game or Discord may result in a mute or ban. Guild recruitment messages belong in guild recruitment channels only. Please note that there is a degree of autonomy allowed to GM’s in regards to enforcing this rule. They will address individual issues according to their own benchmark of severity. Action may be taken against players who consistently create a negative atmosphere. While we welcome constructive feedback and criticism, we expect that feedback to be delivered without the use of personal attacks, threats, toxicity, or gloom and doom. Feedback should focus on how to improve the Project-X experience. This includes risk mode shaming. It disrupts communication between players. It is unacceptable to harass players in World chat. Intentionally spoiling movies, shows or other entertainment is unacceptable. Not only is this behavior rude and inconsiderate, many times our staff is unable to stay current with popular movies, shows and games. If you spoil the experience of our staff or players you will receive a 7-day mute at minimal up to an in-game ban. This mute is irreversible and cannot be appealed. Our GMs have full discretion about what constitutes a spoiler. Griefing, and Excessive Disruption of Other Player’s Fun. Project-X is a Social Interaction Focused game; as an MMO, players will constantly be interacting with each other in PvP, PvE, out in the world, and inside city and dungeon walls. These interactions almost always have an impact on other human beings playing the game: in an MMO, you can affect other people. Guilds. You may not organize any guilds or groups based on any racist, sexist, anti-religious, anti-ethnic, anti-gay, political or any other hate-mongering philosophy. You may not partake in idolatry of any kind that does not exist within the lore of Warcraft. Character names are unique and on a first-come/first-served basis. Please choose unoffensive, non-sexual and non-obscene character names. If you fail to do so, you will be asked to change your name, or have your name changed for you. See NAMING GUIDELINES Impersonating Staff Members, or lying to a Staff Member, in any and all circumstances, will result in a ban with no warning. Frequent abuse of the ticket system, whether to ask the staff for goods, services, or favors, or to insult them, is prohibited. Asking for your friend(s) to be un-banned is a waste of staff resources and will not be tolerated. We DO NOT discuss account details with anyone other than the account holder. NSFW Posting external links in chat that lead to content that is inappropriate, for example pornographic, grotesque, or content deliberately designed to arouse anger, is prohibited. Threatening players, staff members, or the server in any way is against our terms of service. Please follow this rule to its logical conclusion; a player who tosses a /threaten at you is not on the chopping block. We don’t tolerate extortion. You will not exploit any bug you find on Project-X, for any reason, including to gain unfair advantage in the game, and if found, will not communicate the existence of any such bug to another player. All exploits with the potential to create an unfair advantage must be shared immediately with through the in-game ticket system or with a Head Game Master, Community Manager, or Developer via Discord. Players found profiting directly from an exploit or the failure to report an exploit may be punished based on the severity of the exploit Other players abusing an exploit does NOT grant you permission to also abuse an exploit. If you see a player abusing an exploit report them and submit screenshots or video if possible. Do not engage in the exploit. Just because a player is using an exploit and has not yet been punished DOES NOT mean you will be exempt from punishment. The use of hacks, bots, scripts, malicious third party programs or game altering patches that provide any tangible advantages to gameplay will result in an irrevocable permanent ban regardless of circumstances or considerations. No Real-World Trade Any attempts to sell any items, accounts, or information for Real money will result in a permanent ban. Attempting to sell, trade or give away a player account will result in that account being banned, even if the transaction has already taken place. Do not conduct business with anyone who is looking to sell an account. Win-trading is strictly prohibited. Fraud, for instance a Paypal Chargeback, will lead directly and unceremoniously to account suspension. Advertising another private server while playing on Project -X will result in a ban of both your account and your IP. Players are free to play where they wish. We do not condone our players advertising Project-X on another server where doing so is a violation of that server’s rules and action may be taken against those players. Please respect Project-X and our players, other servers and their players. This rule includes community platforms associated with other servers. GM’s will not involve themselves with guild politics players are responsible for using proper discretion when joining guilds, and any events that occur between members of a guild, except for those that specifically violate the above rules, will be left to players to resolve. Intentionally disrupting intended gameplay or functionality is prohibited. Examples include queuing for random dungeon finder repeatedly while avoiding the queue or joining a battleground without intent to participate(going AFK, hiding in stealth, or intentionally putting your team at a disadvantage). Account Sharing and Security Sharing your account information is against our rules. While there is no punishment for account sharing, anyone found in violation of this rule will be INELIGIBLE for character, item or account restorations of any kind due to being “hacked” or missing items. Ban appeals due to unauthorized access will be immediately denied. If you share your account information you are opting in to any consequences that may arise as a result.

GMs will not resolve disputes around gambling and action may be taken against accounts found to be gambling or advertising gambling. Other players violating our general conduct rules does NOT grant you permission to do so as well. Please note that this is not a rule designed to pigeonhole players into any sort of mentality or action; rather, it is a rule designed to allow our GM’s to punish players whose goal it is to deliberately harass, frustrate, and potentially cause-to-quit. Unreachable locations Do not attack players from unreachable locations in the world or instanced PvP. You cannot use your location to create a situation where another player is unable to fight back. This same rules applied to PvE. Community Bashing Attacking members of the community based on the way they want to play the game is grounds for a mute. Project-X is committed to maintaining a community and in-game experience you can enjoy the way you want to. The team takes multiple perspectives into account and discouraging other members of the community from participating or sharing their perspectives will not be tolerated. This applies to all communities in game and out that are maintained by Nexus Community. Progression Locked and Unobtainable Items In the circumstance of items or features becoming available before their intended release you should notify a GM immediately for correction. Items obtained outside of their intended release will be removed, in many cases without compensation. This includes any item or feature where progression NPCs, PvP vendors, crafting recipes or anything typically only obtainable when the server reaches a set stage of progression becomes available before the intended release date. Support Team and GM Tickets -Creating additional GM Tickets or Messaging a different GM looking for a new result will result in a temporary ban. Repeated offenses may lead to permanent account closure. -Intentionally misrepresenting, withholding or lying to GMs in an attempt to gain an advantage or initiate punishment on another player will result in account action. -Do not abuse the GM ticket system. GM tickets are for in-game issues requiring GM support only. Feedback, suggestions or general questions should be directed to Discord or the Forums. Please do not ask GMs questions you can google! Allow them to focus on issues that require GM intervention. Abuse of the GM ticket system will result in a warning. Repeated offenses may result in account action. GMs follow the same policies. If you believe a result to be made in the error the ONLY staff member you should contact is Log#0069 If you message multiple GMs for support(please only message one) it is your responsibility to inform the other GMs when your request has been handled. This ensures you do not break the above rules and ensures we can deliver the quickest support possible. If you have an in-game issue create an in-game ticket. Game masters always answer in-game tickets before handling Discord requests. Please reserve Discord support for issues that cannot be handled via a GM ticket.
