  • Minge - A person who purposely or with lack of knowledge interferes with others experience. (i.e. Asshole)


  • KOS - Kill On Sight

  • FearRP - If someone is pointing a gun at YOU, you must role-play it as if it was real life and that you value your life. This means that you wouldn't run around or take out your own gun when someone is pointing theirs at you. For more about FearRP read here.


  • Power-game - Powergaming is actions that overpower one party in roleplay situations. For example you can’t kill someone when they are typing because they must have the chance to communicate if voice is not available. For more about Powergaming read here.

  • Do not troll/flame/minge. Just don't be annoying and RP properly.

  • You must role-play fear of weapons, including those on safety. (FearRP).
