OOC - Out of Character
This is the act of speaking from your own mouth, and not from your character's perspective. Your character is not you. For example, in OOC I could say, "Brb, I'm going to eat dinner." Your character wouldn't say that because he/she's not going to eat dinner! You wouldn't say, "I love this server" in IC chat, because your character believes its in the real world.

IC - In Character
This is the act of saying something from your character's mouth, and you use it to say what your character does.

LOOC - Local out of Character
This is Out of Character, but in a local distance. If you want to talk to someone near you and you don't want your character to say it, then use LOOC. For example,
Player 1 > Hi, I love this school!
Player 2 > [LOOC] Be right back, I have to go and eat dinner.
Player 1 > [LOOC] kk.

Metagaming is when you use Out of Character knowledge for In Character purposes. This could also be saying your location, saying that you have an item, or any other thing that a character would not know if you didn't say in OOC Chat.

Powergaming is the act of forcing your actions upon someone else. For example,
*** Player 1 kills the person with the knife.
This does not give the other player a chance to react. A correct way of doing it would be,
*** Player 1 attempts to kill the person with the knife.

Powerplay is the act of controlling another character's actions without permission. For example,
*** Player 1 attempts to stab the other play, the other play would get hit by the knife.

FailRP (Fail Roleplay) is when you do something that would not realistically be achievable, or you don't act like your character. For example,
Player 1 > Dude, its just a minecraft server.
Your character would not realise this is a Minecraft server, saying it in LOOC would be allowed however.

FearRP is Fear Roleplay, something that characters must do. If a character was to threaten you with a knife, you'd have to react in a scared fashion.

A minge is a term to describe someone who acts unseriously, and FailRP's the majority of the time. Someone who basically likes to ruin people's roleplay.

Being a Mary-Sue is the act of having a perfect character with no flaws whatsoever.

This means Random Death Match, its where you kill someone without a reason.

Mingerunning is the act of running away from a roleplay situation, (someone trying to mug you.)

Using unfair tactics in a fight. For example, punching someone so hard they fall to the ground unconscious in one hit.

Erotic Roleplay - Don't do it.

Making an action or event that happened ICly, no longer happened. This may happen if something shouldn't of happened (RDM), and is therefore no longer IC.

When a regular player enforces rules. You shouldn't minimod, you should contact an admin to resolve a solution. Helping a player is not minimodding.

F2B (Fade To Black)
This is the act of being in a roleplay situation without roleplaying out. (E.g, being healed at the nurse's room without doing the roleplay of being healed to avoid boredom.) It may not always be acceptable to happen if all parties disagree.

Red means the rule will lead to a severe punishment (sometimes perma/monthly bans.) The red is not limited, as other rules may lead to severe punishment too.

The rules within the following document apply to ALL Roleplay Maker servers/plots/roleplays and can be enforced by the plot's staff themselves.

General Rules

1. Do not create inappropriate plots/builds that consist of anything offensive, or toll-like. All plots are meant to be taken seriously, creating anything along the long the lines of anything erotic/un-serious will not be tollerated.
2. You are not allowed to discriminate, be sexist, be racist, be homophobic, or put any graphic/sexual content in OOC.
2a. If racism, extremism, Nazism is present in IC to the point of which it is becoming uncomfortable for players and presented in a unserious manner (such as skins from Adolf Hitler), RPH/plot staff have the right to ban you.​
3. You are not allowed to advertise any other servers or websites, or other plots. You may only advertise links if they have some relevance to the server, or plot itself.
4. Do not hack, client mods are allowed if they do not affect anyone else's gameplay experience.

Using any of these mods will lead to severe punishment.
  • Hacking Mods (Wurst, Huzuni, Wolfram, WeepCraft, X-Ray Mods)
  • Minimap Mods/Additional Data Mods (Rei's Minimap, Radar Chest, Zans Minimap)
  • World Downloading Mods (WDL, Schematica)
  • Certain External Clients (Cheat Engine)
  • FPS Enhancers (Optifine)
  • Graphics Enhancers (Shaders, Better Foliage, Blocks 3D, Gammabright)
  • Cosmetic Mods (Advanced Capes Mod, MinecraftCapes, Tails, Chisels & Bits)
  • Player Animation/View (Shoulder Surfing, Mo' Bends, ThirdPerson Everything)
  • Utility Mods (Too Many Items, Just Enough Items, Inventory Tweaks, UcUtils)
  • Cinematic Mods (ReplaysMod)
  • HUD Mods (RPG HUD, Real Time Clock, MineMenu)
  • Forge (FML, MCP, mercurius_updater)
  • Sound Mods (Ambient Sounds, Dynamic Surroundings, Sound Filters)
5. Do not attempt to log off to avoid confrontation with a staff member, or try to evade a punishment, ban, kick in anyway.
6. No inappropriate skins, in game names, or nicknames. This includes Nazi skins, NSFW skins and names such as 'Adolf Hitler', erotic names/skins, and racist names/skins.

7. Do not bring ALL real life principals into your plot. You cannot create plots that indulge in sensitive topics, such as a ‘Concentration Camp Roleplay’, ‘School-Shooting Roleplay’, etc.
8. Do not target people OOCly, or excessively disrespect them.
9. Do not argue with staff unless you know you are being wrongfully accused and can provide evidence of this.
10. Do not spam the caps lock.
11. Do not spam the chat or flood the chat.
12. Try to use your best grammar.
13. Do not glitch or try to use exploits to your advantage
14. Do not minimod if you’re not a staff member on the owner’s designated plot. If there's a issue call for a plot admin, or an RPH admin. Don't take matters into your own hands. Helping a player is not minimodding, minimodding is only enforcing rules without being an admin.
15. Failure to report rule-breakers may lead to punishment depending on the circumstances.
16. Trying to find any 'loop-holes' in the rules and abusing this may lead to punishment, staff have the right to create new rules if the gameplay is deemed unfair.
17. Any threats to the server, players, staff such as DDoS threats, DoX threats and false accusations will lead to a permanent ban, even if joking about it.

18. Plagiarizing any plots from players for your own benefit is not tolerated. If you’re found out doing this, you will be punished, and your plot will be deleted.
19. Do not lie in OOC or LOOC about a roleplay situation.
20. Do not post yours, or others, personal contact information (addresses, full names, phone numbers.)
21. Trying to connect with a VPN/anonymizer repeatedly. We have anti-VPN/anonymizers because people use them to bypass IP-bans.
22. Minge-pushing people/body-blocking (using the collision feature to move them into places for the purpose of trolling or blocking certain places using the collision feature without roleplay and just to troll) is not allowed.
23. Lying to players about the server is against the rules in OOC, just the following:
23a. Lying to players about the functionality of commands (saying that certain commands do stuff which they don't.)​
23b. Lying about rules that don't exist​
24. Do not minge-grab. This means picking up an item that has been dropped on the floor during a transaction (e.g, during a shop transaction) that was not meant for you.
25. You may only report events that have happened within 6 months. However, if the event which has occured is serious, this rule does not apply.
26. You may not abuse creative permissions given to you by the owners of any plot. You may not grief, or build anything inappropriate with the permissions you are given by the creator of the plot.
27. Any sort of malicious behaviour (e.g, grooming) will result in a serious ban.

28. Both the commands, /me, /it, /my, etc. Must be used ONLY for their purposes and not anything else inappropriate.
29. You may not blatantly steal a person's entire skin and must have one that is unique to you. This rule is not applied to minor similarities in skins such as hair color, shading, or parts of outfits such as jackets.
30. Both RPH Staff, as well as plot-staff reserve the right to temporarily blacklist an individual from a certain type of Roleplay Maker plot.

Roleplaying Rules
You may not purposely stall to waste time
2. No roleplaying in OOC/LOOC. You can of course sometimes do a line of roleplay in OOC ironically.
3. No metagaming or metabaiting in order to benefit your character whilst causing distress to others. Metagame regarding subtle information or guidance is allowed however discouraged.
4. Even if a action is voided, it can still be eligible for a ban (ERP, RDM.)
5. Do not break NLR, and do not return to the place you were killed for at least fifteen minutes.
6. Do not forget to attempt every action you may perform, for example, /me attempts to punch the person in the face. Unless the other individual has agreed OOCly to you doing so otherwise.
7. When you pull out a item and hold it in your hand, it is there ICly. You cannot say that you did not do an action to pull it out.
8. Do not mix IC chat and OOC chat.
9. Do not evade a roleplay situation by walking away. (Do not mingerun) If you are in a situation where you need to roll, make sure to roll.
10. Give your character's description using good grammar and punctuation.
11. Do not FailRP.
12. Do not use emoticons in IC Chat, use /me to describe your emotions.
13. Do not ERP (erotic roleplay), this includes creating erotic literature. Erotic roleplay is only sexual acts, such as having sex. It is not kissing, hugging etc. Erotic literature is describing sexual acts. This is generally disallowed on the server.
13a. Please do not reference sensitive erotic topics in detail, such as rape or necrophilia.
14. You cannot roleplay on two accounts at the same time in order to gain advantage in a roleplay scenario.
15. When your character dies, you are to change your skin, RPname & Description.
