GTA RULES

Rules are subject to change with the needs of the community, and announcements will be made in Discord to call out changes. It’s the responsibility of players to stay up to date on the rules.

Community Rules
  1. No win-only mentalities. Counter play is necessary to successful roleplay.
  2. Role Play Before Bloodshed: No Random Death Matching (RDM) or Kill on Sight (KOS). All conflict must be initiated verbally or with an abundance of story lead-up within close proximity of the conflict. The target of conflict attack must be able to recognize they’re being threatened with harm, why and by whom before they’re injured.
  3. Metagaming is prohibited.
    • You are not your character; do not act on or disclose information your character didn’t gain on-server.
  4. Power gaming is prohibited.
    • Roleplay that does not give other players the opportunity to roleplay their character’s own actions is considered power gaming (e.g., using the /me command to force an outcome: /me knocks them out with the butt of a gun instead of /me hits your temple with the butt of a gun ).
  5. Stream sniping is prohibited.
    • Presence in a streamer’s chat while on the server will be assumed as evidence of stream sniping if there is a complaint submitted.
  6. RP that violates the Twitch Terms of Service (ToS) and Twitch Community Guidelines is prohibited.
  7. Players and their characters must be 18 years or older.
  8. Players must have English fluency enough to easily understand and be understood.
  9. You must have your Steam account linked to your Discord, in the event that admins need to find you on the allowlist. You should still have your character names as part of your name.
    • In the event that you don’t feel comfortable showing your steam account then please make sure your name is your steam name on your application.
  10. Admin actions via Discord must be given priority.
    • If an admin contacts you to discuss a timeout, the ban will not be lifted (regardless of its initial duration) until you have spoken to the admin. If an admin contacts you to discuss a rule break and you do not acknowledge the message with a response, you may be timed out until you do so.
  11. Be respectful of other players in the community; personal insults or attacks outside of roleplay are strictly prohibited.
    • Speaking poorly of others on stream, in chats or elsewhere will not be tolerated. If you have a concern that someone broke a community or on-server rule, submit a report.
    • Any player caught harassing or bullying another player on the server, or outside of the server but in relation to their presence on the server, will be permanently removed and barred from the current and any future allowlist.
  12. Voice Communication:
    • Players must have a good quality and functioning microphone and headset for VoIP RP.
    • Players or characters who are mute may use /mu or /me tools for roleplay (See also Getting Started).
    • You must not use external communication to communicate with other players while on the server.
    • Any music played on the server must be DMCA compliant.
  13. Make use of the appropriate tools and #channels to report issues or request support.
    • If you need to DM another community member for any reason, you should ask and receive permission first in a public channel.
  14. Glitching/Exploiting is prohibited.
    • Use of game mechanics (intended or otherwise) to gain an unfair advantage is considered exploiting (e.g., using known bugs or using game features in inappropriate and unintended ways).
    • Logging out during conflict (“combat-logging”) is prohibited.
  15. Players must be in character at all times on-server. This includes communication and actions.
    • IC conflict is to be resolved IC. If rule-related concerns arise, players are expected to remain IC to the conclusion of the scene, and file a player report.
  16. Content Restrictions:
    • Extreme Violence: OOC consent must be obtained through Discord between all parties before torture/mutilation RP. Descriptions (verbal or /me) cannot be overly descriptive or gruesome.
    • Prohibited Topics: Roleplay and references to the following topics, both verbal and written, are absolutely not permitted by TwitchRP or allowed on any of its servers, Discord, or other hosted services and may result in a permanent community ban:
      • Racism or Sexism
      • Suicide or self-harm

    • Staff have the final say in what is allowed. They have the right to remove posts as they see fit.

Server Rules

  1. You must value your life, freedom, and the lives of others. For example, do not attempt to draw a weapon while being held at gunpoint or carelessly injure NPCs.
  2. Don’t script stories. It is okay to set up loose story lines at the onset of a story, but to attempt to control a narrative is against the server rules. This server is about collaborative storytelling.
  3. Groups, Families or Enterprises (Civilian or Criminal) are limited to 10 people max. Any exemptions to this must be requested in a super group agreement here.
  4. Any LORE groups or characters must be approved through a super group agreement request here.
  5. You are not allowed to play a serial killer without a serial killer agreement here. This is to assure you have the support you need from the admin team to accomplish your story.
  6. NEW LIFE RULE:
    • If you click E to respawn or the timer expired and you respawned at the hospital; You do not remember anything leading up to your death.
    • If you are incapacitated (meaning – You see the text to call an Ambulance or click E to respawn) you MUST NOT remember anything from the moment you are incapacitated until you are revived.
  7. To bring back a permadeath character you must seek an agreement with the admin team.
  8. Heists are limited to 5 criminals max, unless the heist is Maze Bank, or Pacific Standard, the limit is then 6 criminals max.
