Rules are in place to help maintain order on Hyperstation 13, Breaking these rules will result in penalization, including but not limited to; removal from the server for any length of time, role bans, verbal warnings. Not knowing the rules is not a justifiable cause for breaking them. When you are done reading these rules, please study policies.
You and your character must be 18 years of age or older. If we have reason to suspect you are underage, or self-admitted to being underage, you'll be removed. With no warnings.
All in character interactions, verbal and writing must be written in English.
Getting close to breaking a rule too many times counts as breaking said rule.
Repetitively breaking the same rule means harsher punishments.
Ignoring admin's warnings will be met with harsher punishments.
All examples of rule breaks are just that; examples. They are included but not limited to.
Don't be a dick. (The golden rule of space station 13)
You should NEVER murder without probable cause (even as a crew traitor). And if you do, you must have a justifiable explanation of why.
All forms of ERP are to be done in private (with LOOC exceptions), and are to be done away from danger.
Do not power game or metagame without strong justification. You may ask admins if you are teaching another play on mic, before playing. We get it, space station 13 is hard.
You are expected to at least try with your given role.
At no point should a non-antag be given the death sentence, without central commands (an admin controlled part of the game) or an admin's direct approval.
Do not ask questions about how to play in AHELP, we have MentorHelp for that.
Please report bugs/glitches in the discord #Bug-Report, and not in AHELP
We allow external links to NSFW websites/images in descriptions and OOC, and PDA messages. But only if the website or image doesn't conflict with any rules.
