Expanded Guidelines (Groups, Territory, Raiding, etc)

From Project Blueberry

Gameplay on a natural roleplay server brings up many different issues that require guidelines so the community stays happy and engaged. Expect these guidelines to be ever-changing in response to community feedback.

Groups

  • If you create a group, ensure members identify themselves on Discord using the [acronym] tag before their nickname;
  • There are no other administrative requirements for groups;
  • Playing as a group gives you more power and influence in-game, and with that comes greater responsibility out-of-game. Groups are expected to police their members and ensure all are aware and following the server Rules and Guidelines;
  • Groups will be held to a higher standard. A solo player accidentally breaking crucial rules will receive more leniency than a group of people breaking rules together;
  • Getting custom armbands or other textures created is as simple as submitting a ticket. Priority will be assigned to groups who are contributing positively to the server and respecting the rules and guidelines.

Territory

  • There is no official territory claiming system on Project Blueberry;
  • Anyone can open a ticket and submit their group’s logo and home location, and provided admins can verify a reasonable presence in that place, the logo will be added to the map at the appropriate location;
  • A logo on the map provides no special privileges or rights. Territory can be contested in-game. Borders are as the group establishes with their presence in-game;
  • If multiple claims are submitted for the same town or area, both will be added and the groups will be encouraged to make a story out of the situation.

Raiding

  • This server is geared towards building and RP, therefore raiding should, like KOS, be rare and motivated by character reasons;
  • Raids should always be planned during prime time hours. If admins see players raiding during deliberately low-population hours (offline raiding), they will intervene. All raids should be planned as a general attack, and result in a raid only when the defending force is defeated or happens to be absent despite the attackers best efforts;
  • If you have any doubt about the acceptability of your raid plans, submit a ticket and admins will provide guidance.

Events

  • Organizing events on a gaming server requires high-degree of organization and time. In order to respect that time and commitment to the community, it is highly discouraged to attack or sabotage events;
  • If you have a serious and unshakable story reason to attack or sabotage an event, it is recommended that you submit a ticket in advance and notify admins. You may be guided in how to accomplish your story goal without ruining the fun of others.
