I'm trying to find restrictions on robbing items back as well. Restrictions on robbing players back is something else as well. Is there a sub forum I maybe missed out? I've typed all of my knowledge from reading the rules in my application but i'm still getting it wrong.


Property scamming isn't allowed.
As long as I know, you can rob back whatever was robbed/scammed from you regardless of the amounts.
Robbing is defined as taking someone's possessions (like money) by force or threat of force. Scamming is defined as hiring another person for a service (like prostitution), or agreeing to buy/sell a certain good (like a gun/drug) and then refusing to pay/give it. Robberies and scams must be done strictly In Character.

All characters involved in robberies and scams must be level 5 or higher. You can rob a maximum of $500. You can scam a maximum of $50,000. There is no limit to how many weapons, drugs and cargo you can rob. You are not allowed to kill a player while or after robbing/scamming them unless they bring it upon themselves by showing attitude or non-compliance. If you have been robbed or scammed, you are allowed to rob back the things you have lost. You may not knowingly rob the same people more than once in a 2-hour period. House, business and vehicle scams are forbidden.

You may not steal properties or abuse /furniture as a furniture designer. If someone has given you a property to allow freedom to /furniture design the house, you may not simply steal the property or use this to scam people.

Legal casinos or betting shops may not scam players. This includes raffles. The maximum bet you can place in a legal betting business is $1,000,000 and all interactions must be role-played properly.

Loaning and ILLEGAL gambling is done at your own risk and is not protected by the level requirements, money limits and scam restrictions described in this rule. Admins will not help you if you lend money to other people and they do not return it, or if your money gets stolen while you are gambling. If a person runs off with your money or gets banned, then the things with that person are gone. Only give your stuff to people you trust and only gamble if you are willing to accept a potential loss.

So every pitting has to be roleplayed? Meaning that no car crashes ever have to be actually roleplayed? Also meaning that cops basically never PIT you by following the rules (cuz no cop will ever roleplay pitting you, it's useless and it's impossible to write fast enough).

It's not an server wide rule but an LSPD rule, you'll be banned from LSPD recruitment for plagiarism.

From an OOC point of view, it's logical you'll be faction banned (which is pretty much an OOC measure); This is a game that is based on text. If you can't write English sufficiently to pass the essay, you should have no place in an official faction.

Having someone else write the essay for you, no matter how logical it might be IC, is basically an attempt to avoid an OOC quality check put in place by a number of official factions to ensure the quality of their members.

Plagiarism will result in an OOC ban from the faction.

That's metagaming.

Kings and queens rule the land
There's more and more lines drawn in the sand
Pawns are crooks, Castles are rooks
It's too bad the good books
Written for the sub-classes to introduce morality
Had nothing to do with reality
But then again, who would have ever read them?
We read the par-Quran for lunch
Eat old testaments for a snack
And a little Lulla-bible before bed

Good point actually.

This is metagame, so technically if you faction ban someone for this you're breaking an IG rule.

Faction management is not ic so there's no rules broken in that. Metagaming would be if you had someone else write the app ic, state in the ooc part your char had a ghostwriter for it, and got denied ic for that.
