Our goal is to provide a fun and immersive environment for everyone and their creative roleplay styles. This may be someone’s first role-play experience or they could be role play veterans; both ends of the spectrum should be treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. Our server is a Serious Roleplay server. Please be respectful of this. Below you will find a list of server rules and guidelines that will help us all achieve this.
It is your responsibility to keep yourself informed on the information below. Changes to this documentation will arise through the future development of the server. Any questions may be directed to a member of the staff team for clarification. Persons with disabilities please reach out to a member of the staff team if accommodations need to be made for your enjoyment in our community.
Vitality Gaming Roleplay is an English speaking server. You must be able to understand and effectively communicate in English. However, you are allowed to incorporate other languages into your character’s role play.
You must have and use a microphone while on the server. If you need help getting it working please seek out help from a Staff member on Discord or in-game before interacting with others in the city. We will happily help you with setting it up.
Your character should have an original and realistic first and last name. The use of offensive, famous, or other low-quality names are not allowed.
New characters should plan for long term growth within the server. For example, you should not join the server and immediately expect to be a crime lord that runs the city.
Players are encouraged to have a healthy balance of legal and illegal activities. It is not realistic to engage in criminal activity all the time.
Your characters are not able to have or obtain detailed knowledge of your other characters’ interactions. You may only have a general knowledge of another character’s existence or general storyline. Making all your characters related (my sister, brother, cousin, etc) will be seen as low-quality RP.
Low-Effort RP or Low-Quality RP: All players are expected to put effort into their roleplay scenarios. Players should not constantly be involved in low effort situations, such as getting into a police chase for a minor crime, constantly robbing other players, unnecessarily killing another player (i.e. killing a compliant player that you kidnapped), etc.
Should disagreements or instances of rule-breaking arise, the first thing you should do is try to roleplay through it, without breaking character. If that doesn’t work, open a Report a Player ticket in our #support Discord channel. Out of character (OOC) arguments will not be tolerated.
The use of glitches, exploits, or hacks will result in an automatic ban from the server. If you find a glitch or in-game exploit please notify the team through the Report a Bug ticket on the #support Discord channel.
Reporting a player must be done through the Report a Player ticket on the #support Discord channel. Likewise, bug reports should be submitted through the Report a Bug ticket on the same channel.
Back Seat Staffing : The act of policing/enforcing server rules on your own while not holding a Staff position on the server will not be tolerated. Use the correct tickets in the #support channel in discord.
Voice changers are acceptable but they must be understandable and not overly loud or too quiet while also being used in the correct Rp scenarios.
The following will state all the rules in our server. You are to abide by them, or receive punishment according to how severe your mistake was. If you see anyone breaking the following rules, please /report as soon as you can, OR take pictures and report that player on the Discord.
Rules may be subject to change anytime. Staff will announce rule changes and post official rules on this page.

How do I "Role-Play" ?
There are two commands in game "/me” and “/do" that you use to role-play with. The command /me is stating that you (your character) is doing something. Whereas /do is stating your characters emotions, and or responses to another player's role play line.
Example: /me picks up a five dollar bill
from the ground.
Example: /do I can feel a pain in my stomach. Example: /do would I be able to pick this toy up without it breaking?
Example of Reporting
During any kind of situation you may use /report if you abuse /report to only get the attention of a admin for nothing but a message. You will be warned if you do it again you will be Admin Jailed.
OR take pictures and report that player on the Discord
