25.02 - What are the personality traits of your character? Is he or she shy, or confident? Is he or she hard working, or lazy?
25.03 - Give your character some strengths and weaknesses and think about how your character would react to things based on those traits.
25.04 - What is the background for this character? Where do they come from? While this doesn’t have to be very detailed, putting some thought and effort into this will make it easier to roleplay with the character.
25.05 - Remember to stick to your character’s traits. You are playing the life of this character, so their experiences should let this character evolve. Let the consequences of your actions evolve this character.
25.06 - Your character cannot be involved in everything, if there is something else you would like to try out, consider making another character and building up a story and background for it. A character should never be a lawyer, ceo, mob boss, psycho and involved in every criminal group.
25.07 - Be mindful about how you try to enter on-going scenarios and story lines. You can interact with people to see if an opportunity arises, but do not show up out of nowhere trying to make an impact or steer a current storyline if your story has not led up to it.

27.01 - During your time in the city, a player will get to interact with characters from all walks of life. From government officials, to law enforcement, to small business owners to regular people.
27.02 - The goal is for players to provide each other with an immersive experience and add to each other’s stories while you are with emergency medical services you will strive to provide a good scenario for each other. The emergency medical services will act in a professional manner while the civilian will roleplay out their injuries to the best of their ability. Use of /me will provide extra information of vitals and injuries is encouraged.
27.03 - While you are with law enforcement officers, they will behave in a professional manner towards the public and each other. The public will provide a base level of respect that law enforcement agencies typically have. Be mindful of when in their custody and provide information through the usage of the /me command for officers to use in their investigations.
27.04 - While downed or in handcuffs by police they are considered to be in police custody. Once you are in custody, the current crime or pursuit scenario is considered over and it switches over to arrest or an investigation scenario. During an arrest or investigation scenario friends of the people under arrest may no longer interfere and civilians are not needed for questioning or involved should leave the area.
28.01 - You should build up and pace it. Do not rush to be a mastermind criminal in one day or a huge business owner in the same amount of time. It is highly unrealistic and very unlikely.
28.02 - Let your character make connections and learn how crime works in the city before making big moves like robbing banks and taking on potential rivals. You should be mindful of the attention from law enforcement agencies and others your actions might generate. Give yourself time between your acts of crime for things to cool down. You should expect to get more police attention, longer jail times and fines as well as investigations if you repeatedly commit criminal offenses in a short time frame.
28.03 - Eventually your character may learn or come in contact with the structure of the criminal enterprise world. All criminals had to work their way up and at some point this climb can be a very important part of their story. Making connections will evolve your story while some organizations and criminals may work together from time to time, conflict is expected.
28.04 - Territory, resources, consumers, and power will drive many of these conflicts. Conflicts and cooperation both help make stories interesting. Make sure to have good amounts of both, avoid large alliances that never allow for any form of conflict.
28.05 - The establishment for the storyline is in the State of San Andreas and the counties within it. It is a state made up of several million people with your characters being a sample of the people within it. While your characters may vary depending on what you prefer, the State of San Andreas will act and should be treated as a realistic state. A lot of balance for a character comes from this.
29.01 - You should not abuse in game mechanics for blatantly unintended purposes just to gain an advantage in activities that do not make any story-based roleplay. Such as abusing the /carry or /takehostage mechanic.
29.02 - Multiple characters from one player in one gang or group is not allowed. Avoid creating multiple characters involved within the same story and scenarios.
29.03 - You may freely change your character as long as it is part of no active scenarios with your characters gang is happening.

30.03 - Realtors, car dealers and mechanic employees are subject to the current head of the business on how he or she wishes to handle their employees related to criminal infractions and offenses.
30.04 - Corruption within the law enforcement sector or government sector will not be tolerated, however there is a difference between corruption and dirty actions. Corruption would be considered selling weaponry, equipment or abusing your powers for any personal gain, while playing dirty would be considered illegal and should be treated within character rather than outside of character.
30.05 - Any whitelisted employee that is found to be embezzling money from a business in any way or shape will be blacklisted from having any other whitelisted job on the server after that point. Especially if carried out through a non-roleplay incident or after being transferred to another character which is an extreme case of power gaming and could possibly lead to a severe banishment.
31.01 - Any member added to a criminal organization must be approached through roleplay to make it official, an application or initiation will need to take place and be approved by the person that is in charge of the organization.
31.02 - If you ask about your application and message people from the job that you have applied to about if you got accepted or not, you are going to get denied. If you do not get a message within a specific time period then you are to assume your application has been declined.

However you do need evidence in order for actions to be taken against the individual responsible for breaking the rules.
34.02 - You are not allowed to impersonate members of the server staff team under any circumstance, doing so will result in an immediate permanent ban from the server without the ability to appeal.
VEHICLE DEATHMATCH (VDM):
35.01 - You are not allowed to use your vehicle as a weapon to kill someone without appropriate intent or initiation. However, pitting vehicles within reason is permitted with the appropriate initiation, as well as if you are a member of a law enforcement agency within the policies that are described for that agency.
36.01 - You are not allowed to roleplay as a hitman or paid / hired assassin on this server, in most circumstances people abuse this as context to kill another individual without the proper initiation and roleplay to do so legitimately, therefore making it fail roleplay as well as random deathmatch. You may target people through proper roleplay reasonings, however you may not put out a professional hit.
Members of the server staff team are authorized to penalize you at their own discretion if your actions are considered inappropriate, destructive or against unwritten policies that are simply considered common sense, however you reserve the right to appeal any such staff actions.
