Captain and Items
While the Captain is in charge of the station, this does not entitle him too job specific, or hard to replace gear, such as the wardens Krav Maga gloves, Heads of Staff Budget Cards, Head of Security’s energy gun, the Bartenders shotgun, CMO’s hypospray, etcetera.
Your account, your responsibility.
Your account, your responsibility. “My little brother did it” will not excuse you from broken rules.
Polymorph, Simplemobs, Ghost roles, Transformations - By Zeskorion
Simplemobs, ghostroles, and transformations: Certain creatures follow different escalation rules (referred to as “Lavaland” escalation).
Lavaland escalation is essentially an excuse to overescalate any conflict that occurs to lethal, as long as you werent the beginning initiator.
Creatures that are valid by default that follow lavaland escalation:
- Simplemobs that were transformed, sentient, or are a station native (Like a pet or bot).
People transformed into Syndicate Cyborgs.
Creatures that may do as they please:
- Slimes spawned via anomalies/supermatter events (NOT sentience potions).
Morphs created through Gluttony’s Blessing.
Ghostrole validity status
Hotel Staff: Valid. Follow NORMAL escalation.
Ashwalkers, Lavaland Syndicate: Valid and act as antags.
Hermits: Not valid, act with lavaland escalation.
Hospital doctors: Follow normal escalation.
Beach bums: Not valid, follow lavaland escalation, normal escalation with their bartender.
Beach Bartender: Not valid, follow normal escalation.
Charlie Station crew: Not valid, follow normal escalation
Golems & Free Golems: Follow lavaland escalation. People may follow lavaland escalation against golems. IF you, as a non-free Golem (aka you have a master) are ordered to stop harming/killing someone, you must do so.
Common, easily replaced items can be stolen from another player without escalation to self antagonising behaviour and are an IC issue.
Uncommon items that can be quickly replaced should not be escalated to OOC, but if it is a direct inconvenience or they have no purpose to steal said item, it may be treated as self antag.
Rare or unique items such as the Wardens krav maga gloves, compact combat shotgun, or traitor objectives, are always self antagonising when stolen from someone or for no reason, unless there is an immediate purpose or need to steal said item. If the player cannot provide a valid reason, it is self antagonising behaviour. In the event the victim is walking around with it out, then it is not self antag if they are shoved over and drop it, unless they are actively using it and there is not a more pressing need for the tool.
Antagonist tokens cannot be spent on custom made admin antagonists, only on base game antagonists available through in game means that are not round ending. In the event a server wide admin event is occuring, they can use an antag token to become the antag for that event. In addition, antagonist tokens cannot be used on round ending antagonists, also known as conversion antagonists, xenomorphs, wizards, nuclear operatives, blob, etcetera. For a more loose definition, this is any antagonist that poses such a threat it forces an immediate shuttle call, or would literally end the round such as a blob. Antag tokens are also only to be given for admin fuckups, not crashes or in game bugs. They also cannot be used during conversion rounds or when there are other round-ending antagonists present, and may be refunded.
Breaking and Entering/Trespassing and Escalation
If a crewmember trespasses into your workplace/office, you may escalate it in the following order:
Tell them to leave.
If they refuse, contact Security.
If Security is not coming, try to non-lethally remove them (shoving, cuffing, stunning, disabling, flashing, Chef’s CQC, bartender’s shotgun with beanbags, pepperspraying).
IF 3 fails, you may crit them and get them to medbay and make sure that they get healed.
IF they go completely hostile (Attacking first and non-stop), they use a weapon or come back to your workplace for a 3rd time (or with a weapon such as a baseball bat), you may validly kill them.
Escalation may ‘speed’ up or outright be skipped to step 3 to 5 IF:
The trespassing occurs in highly secure areas (Vault, Armory, AI Upload/Core)
Trespassing into areas which are vital for the station’s wellbeing (atmos, SM)
Trespassing into areas that are part of Command areas (Bridge, EVA, Teleporter and such. This includes head of staff’s offices) or are isolated from the station (No one goes to viro, let’s be honest).
“I didn’t read the rules.”
Admitting to not reading the rules is grounds for a 30 minute - 1 hour ban so that you have ample time to read them.
Whoever accepts an application must post that they did in the application thread. Council can also choose to deny an application even if it has a positive score.
Killing Ian makes you valid to be killed by all members of the ships crew.
You must have witnessed the event and not use hearsay or communications, and in the event that Changelings are on the station, it is advised to use caution for obvious reasons.
Shuttles - By DebonairCorsiar
Buying deadly and dangerous shuttles makes you valid.
Dangerous shuttles are defined as shuttles like Oh Hi Daniel, Disco Inferno, the Hyperfractal Gigashuttle, and the Build-A-Shuttle kit.
To repeat, it is only those listed shuttles; the list will be edited if changes are needed to be made.
For more clarification ahelp in game.
An exemption is made if the shuttle is bought after majority approval from the crew.
Due to the fact it emits radiation, is incredibly volatile, creates anomalies and plasma, and automatically instakills someone if they touch it; Dragging around an SM shard container, unlocked or locked, without an IMMEDIATE need for it, is self antag, human harm, and worthy of a ban if you do so without a legitimate reason. Ordering it without approval of the CE or Captain can be considered Grand Sabotage and blatant self antag if the normal supermatter still exists, and at worst may result in a permanent ban.
tl;dr don’t order it unless you are expressly setting it up and have already created an area for it, and if you are, drag it around with the crate completely locked, and attempt to go through space. Or, just don’t order it unless the current supermatter is missing.
Do not leave the hotel as hotel staff or leave the Syndicate Lavaland Base.
Other ghost roles may do so, but those two should not.
Language on the MRP Server - By Mini_Meatwad
This ONLY applies on the MRP server.
Inappropriate use of racial slurs will not be allowed. Do not use the terms in a derogatory manner, such as using the n word to make a slavery joke. Using the word is fine, but do not overuse it just to appear “edgy”. The admins retain the right to decide when use of these words is not appropriate, and can delete any messages that violate this without warning. By using racial slurs, you accept that YOU are responsible for any consequences that arise from your messages.
Space Law - By DebonairCorsiar
Space law is a guideline, however, in terms of fairness, we should enforce brig timers to reasonable amounts to keep people from being removed from the round for unnecessary or extended periods of time.
Examples include putting someone in brig for 10 minutes for slipping the Head of Security once, or permabrig for a similar crime.
Shuttle Ping-Pong - By DebonairCorsiar
Constantly calling and recalling the shuttle or lowering the alert level so it takes longer to arrive, whether as an antagonist that “still needs to finish his objectives”, or as a non-antagonist crewmember that just wants to be annoying when the shift has been going for an extended period of time (keeping the round hostage, in a way) will make you valid for both players and admins (adminbus) alike and can lead to punishments in the form of notes, kicks or even bans.
Example: Changeling hasn’t done any of his objectives in a 1 hour long round, so he decides to create a Communications Console and constantly recall the shuttle so he can keep doing whatever he wants.
ID Consoles - By Zanos(LordGrievous)
Heads of staff who indiscriminately distribute access without good reason will be bwoinked, and potentially receive rolebans if the behavior persists. This does not include HoP/Captain granting all access for reasons like Nuke Ops or other stationwide crisis, but does include HoP opening line and granting AA to anyone who walks by for no reason. The most likely outcome of doing this is that you will aid antagonists and contribute to people getting killed when they greytide into places they shouldn’t be.
