RANDOM DEATHMATCH/RDM RULES

1.1: Any injury or kill without any roleplay situation leading up to it will result in a warning and is against the rules.
CLARIFICATION: Examples of a "roleplay situation" include faction/gang-related killings, warfare, robbery, kidnapping, and more. Simply using /RP to kill someone does not classify as this. These infractions will be handled on a case-to-case basis. Consented killing / non reported cases of this will not be punished.
NEW LIFE RULES
1.2: Once someone is killed, they cannot remember who killed them or actions that were involved subsequently to death. (Warn)
1.3: Once someone dies, any preceding criminal activities are forgotten, as well as a wanted status or crimes committed. This only applies to the policing level for example arresting someone for something done in their past life, for major things that call for a court trial or go against ones limitations for their job they can still be charged or fired. (Warn)
1.4: If someone is found to abuse this rule by intentional suicide or through encouraging a player to kill them, they will be punished accordingly, as well as the murderer who was found to support the violation of this rule. (Warn)
1.5: If someone is found to warp, home, or logout without permission during a roleplay situation (Ex: kidnapping, arrest, etc) (Warn)
1.6: Releasing coreinspect information to reveal who stole from a chest and then using it for RP purposes. (Warn)
1.7: After fired from a position you may not rejoin the position with exam signs without permission.

WARFARE ROLEPLAY RULES: REBELLIOUS GROUPS/INSURRECTION

2.1: To institute a revolt against the current government of said state to overthrow the said government, the commander-in-chief of the defending state must be online with at least three members of the state's armed forces online. The military leader (in whatever form sufficient with the command structure of said rebellion) of the rebellion must also be online. With such requirements being sufficient, the revolt must procure support from the Imperium staff. (24 hour ban)
2.2: Members of rebellion against a government in power can commit acts of terror. Any act that is ascertained as an "act of terror" by any single roleplay staff member will have a twenty-four-hour cooldown on the next possible attack. An act of terror is defined as the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims. The cooldown will become active once the attack is determined to be completely dissolved by any single roleplay staff member. (Warn)
2.3: During an act of terror by a rebellious group, only law enforcement and a state's armed forces may take part in fighting these forces. Under no other circumstances will a state's law enforcement or military be able to fight with the said rebellious group unless such action, or approval, is taken by the state's government. (Warn)
CLARIFICATION: This rule has no legal jurisdiction over a state's ability to commit acts of war, or incarcerate members of these groups. The second sentence only applies if there is no order given by the state's ruling government.
2.4: Members of rebellious groups against a state's ruling government may not aimlessly attack their military officers or law enforcement. Such attacks are considered an act of terror and the cooldown rule in (2.2) will begin. (Warn)

THE RULE ABOVE IS UNDER THE GENERAL WARFARE RULES
2.5: Strategic militaristic missions by a rebellious group, such as destruction or looting of a government's military resources, is permitted and has no cooldown.
2.6: For insurrection to be approved, it must garner support from the Imperium staff team while outlining factors such as support of the populous of said state, corruption, tyranny, etc. (Warn)
CLARIFICATION: Approval of insurrection does not mean the actual act of war against the government is approved. That requires separate approval, outlined in (rule code/#). Also, if an administrator is a member of the government, or aristocratic ranks, of the state being voted on, they will not be included in the administrative vote.

WARFARE ROLEPLAY RULES: GENERAL
3.1: Both the commander-in-chief of the defending armed forces and the offensive armed forces in any situation of warfare must be online. At least three members of the defending state’s armed forces must be online. If both requirements are met, the war will be approved, pending ascent from Imperium administration. (Warn)
3.2: A declaration of war, with Imperium staff approval, must be made before attempting to battle with other states. (24 Hour temp ban)
3.3: If the defending state is determined to be intentionally avoiding depredation from the state that declared war on the defending state, staff punishment will be given. (24 Hour temp ban and override of rule 3.1)
3.4: A member of the Imperium roleplay committee, excluding trial staff, must be online to independently spectate battle and guarantee that rules are being followed. Trial staff members part of said committee are permitted to spectate alongside non-trial for training.
3.5: For one side to be considered the winner, locations will be drawn out by an independent commission of staff members, chosen by the Imperium administration, for the states to hold to gain pieces of territory. Each piece of territory must be held for at least twenty minutes for the offensive side to gain said territory. This process will continue until one side of the participant's surrenders. Once that happens, the treaty process between the factions involved will begin.
3.6: In rare circumstances where either side cannot continue due to factors of time, war can be paused by the same independent commission of staff members that drew the territorial lines in war. Unpausing will also be in the hands of this temporary commission.
