Here lie the official rules of the server. By playing on the server you have agreed to follow and abide these rules. Any violations of these rules will have consequences. If you have a complaint, please make a post about it in the Suggestions and Feedback forum.
In-Game Rules (Minecraft)
Hacked or modified clients that give an unfair advantage are not tolerated -- This does not include mods like Optifine and Rei's Minimap.
The exploit of bugs or glitches for an unfair advantage is not tolerated -- Block-lagging and Block-glitching in general is included.
Requesting for ranks, extra privileges or spawned items will not be tolerated.
Disrespecting or insulting a member of the community or staff is not tolerated -- This only services related to our server (teamspeak, skype, forums, etc.).
Spamming in any way, or in any chat is not tolerated -- excessive usage of full-caps and excessive use of the LOOC chat are considered spam.
Destruction of a structure made by another player without their permission will not tolerated -- This is what you call griefing.
Play wisely, do not act like a fool.
Jumping over barriers/walls/barricades with Horses is not tolerated -- Self-explanatory.
Treason - any act(s) against the server staff, or the server itself, will not be tolerated.
Historical accuracy & Realism rules
Large builds must be approved by a ‘MessyMedieval Master’ before being implemented -- To uphold a high quality environment to roleplay in, players must first create their intended ‘larger’ builds on the MessyMedieval build server and have their build approved by an ‘MM Master’. For a detailed guide on how the MessyMedieval server and Crusadecraft work together, click here.
Enforce realism in your buildings -- Your buildings must be realistic: they must have a proper structure; they must fit the historical context; they must be realistically located; they must be scaled appropriate to their function.
Landscarring will not be tolerated -- Our map was created over a long period of time and a lot of care and effort went into it. Respect the servers and the environment you are allowed to roleplay in. To enforce this, some regions of the map are marked as no-build zones.
Mass Encastellation will not be tolerated -- Before any type of fortification, you must fill out an application, found here. This is done in order to prevent mass encastellation and exaggeration of hostile roleplay.
Do not build large ships -- To prevent the creation of unrealistic looking and sized ships, we do not allow players to build boats larger than about 7x3 blocks. For more information on how to get a ship, have a look out our shipyard thread.
Causing rebellions in roleplay for inadequate roleplay reasons will not be tolerated -- If you are looking to run some roleplay in an area with friends, contact an admin rather than causing an ooc-fueled rebellion. They can make some deals and set you up in a position that will benefit you, and the server as a whole.
Abide to the historical context of our server -- The server is not meant to exactly procreate history, but roleplay must still be adapted to the historical context.
You may not invent technology, ideologies and religions that were not present in 11tht century Sicily. (Ex: Creating the Sicilian Socialist Worker’s party is thus forbidden.)
You are not allowed to play significant actual historical characters such as nobles, family of nobility, philosophers, etc; nor are you allowed to play family members or descendants of them. This requires explicit permission from an admin.
The rest of the world outside of Sicily follows the exact course of history, unless explicitly noted otherwise by admins.
The use of meta-gaming, power-gaming (Power-emoting) and god-modding is not tolerated -- Be sure you have a clear understanding of these, they are the main things you want to avoid when roleplaying. For more information in this, take a look at our roleplay guide.
inapropriate character names will not be tolerated -- This includes references to pop-culture (ex: Han Solo), trolly names (ex: Adolf shitler), a historical names (ex: )
Giving a character away to another player is not tolerated -- If you make a character and play it on your account, you cannot give it away to another player, even if you are banned.
The more than necessary use of Local Out-of-Character chat is not tolerated -- Try to avoid using it at most times, if you wish to make comments about the roleplay happening, use private messages instead.
Use (( ))'s around your Local-OOC text; Speaking in OOC without any form of indicators is not tolerated -- The double brackets indicate that what is inside them is in OOC, try to avoid using OOC while in character.
Teleporting away, or simply just avoiding RP will not be tolerated -- You are in a roleplay server, you're meant to roleplay at all times.
Actions that did not exist in history - such as magic - will not be tolerated -- If you have any question regarding this topic, send a message to a staff member.
Cybering of any kind - this includes foreplay; and strong sexual innuendos will not be tolerated -- This is a very serious offence and will be taken very harshly.
Any form of sexual rape is not tolerated -- Self-explanatory.
Direct references to unrelated OOC topics in the IC names of characters, organizations, etc will not be tolerated
If you commit suicide in an RP situation, you're forced to permakill your character -- If you commit suicide, you can never use that character again.
Besides suicide, your character can get perma killed by a Moderator or Admin -- If an assassination or such is roleplayed and moderated correctly, then a Moderator may force you to have your character perma killed.
Our server allows you to practice all acts of villany and crime without having to fill out any application, although we provide several rules and guidelines that prevent an abuse of our favorable system.
You must provide fun roleplay for everyone when committing an evil -- If the victim(s) is becoming uncomfortable with the roleplay provided you should tone down or apologize and leave.
Don't overdo it -- You shouldn't commit many evil actions in a small amount of time, have moderation with evil, or you will be severely punished.
You can't steal more than 25% from an unlocked chest, and 10% from a locked chest (under staff oversight).
If you run from an RP situation in which there is going to be a fight, the other participants have the right to chase you down and pvp you -- Self-explanatory.
Combat-logging or Combat-teleporting will not be tolerated -- Do not log off while in pvp.
If a fight is happening, both must agree which method you're going to use to fight (PvP or RP), if you cannot come to a compromise, then you must resort to PvP.
Before every PvP fight, both parties must be ready and then there must be a countdown -- 1, 2, 3, go!
To encompass the difficult process of war and the events surrounding it, we have composed our war rules separately. You may find them here.
