DUE TO CHANGES IN THE SECOND LIFE TERMS OF SERVICE YOU INHERENTLY AGREE, BY AGREEING TO ABIDE BY THESE RULES AND ENTERING LOST ANGEL'S, THAT YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN AND YOU ARE NOT OFFENDED BY VIOLENCE, ADULT LANGUAGE OR SEXUAL CONTENT. THE OWNER OF ONYXIA DEFERS ALL RESPONSIBILITY BEYOND THIS AGREEMENT, IN LEGAL LIABILITIES, TO THE TRESPASSING PARTY, PARTIES NOT OVER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN ARE TRESPASSING AND THUS LEGALLY LIABLE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS.

What is the City of Onyxia's:

The City of Onyxia's is a Dark RP/Combat/Sex sim where you can come and live a character life that's not all shiny and happy and new like most of Second Life. We attempt to provide a good community for free form role play for characters of a darker nature.

All visitors are welcome but must remember the this is a multi language speaking sim so you need to make RP in what ever language a person is speaking. In case that you dont speak the language, you need to use a translator all the time. If you dont use the translator you will received a warning.

a) Races remarks will not be tolerated.. You will be ban from the sim.

Respects the limits of each player. In any case, if you have doubts, you can arrange the terms of the RP with the other player in IM. We are here to enjoy the game.

Any claim on the part of a player will have to be recounted to a GM of the sim with written evidence. The players will have to continue with the RP and at the end of game the GMs would evaluate the mistakes committed to do the necessary sanctions. In addition, they also will take time to award every player with outstanding performance in the RP.

No player is authorized to force an RP. If a player does not want to enter the RP it will have to call a GM and request not to get involved on it. The player will have to give a very good reason in order to cancel or modify the RP. The player who takes this as a custom to evade the RP'S will be sanctioned for not sharing the RP'S of the sim. The sanction will be determinated by the GM Admins. No player will be able to attack other players without a IC reason . Every player who wants to attack will have to do a RP before this. The rp need to be no less that 5 rp lines before the attack.

The GM'S are not gods but they are the only resource we have to be able to guarantee the good performance in the sim. We try that ALL can have fun but if at least 80 % of the persons is pleased it will be a good day. Every player who does not follow the instructions of the game and/or the sim will be sanctioned because of insubordination. Any player who insult or use offensive language when he or she is talking to a GM will be ejected and ban for 3 days from CCS and/or will be dock with 5000 XP as a CCS player depending on the magnitude of the offense. The final decition will be in the GM Admin hands.This is something extremely hard but efective because this kind of situation cant happen. Just avoid all kind of problems, enjoy the game and if not you cant tp out . The GMs that decides to take part in a RP inside Onyxia Sim will be considered as a player and will not be able to use his GM's power. In addition they will be judged as one regular player.

In case there are not GM at the time of a rp, any of the GMs who are as players need to leave the game, change his/her tag as ooc gm and shout in general chat the new status. This GM can not go back to the RP.

All decitions taken by Onyxia GMs are final and endorsed by the Admin.In case that you have a problem with them, please contact the Sim owner
Visitors or residents are not allowed to use an OOC tag if is not autorized by the GMs, Admins or the sim owner.

Global rule number one. Enjoyment SL, your RP and your CCS but do not try to destroy others fun. This sim was created to liberate stress and to have fun with your friends. If for any reason your peace is disturbed, call a GM and required your rights. If for any reason you came here to disturb the others, beware because your ass will be kick. Avoid such pain.

GENERAL RULES:


1) You do not have a right to be an asshole. Treat others as you wished to be treated.


2) Child Avatars:
Child Avatars are not allowed within Onyxia. This is a adult sim, where adult things happen all day everyday. We've tried to allow child avatars with the no sex/violence rule, but it almost always caused a problem. If your avatar looks like a child you will be warned that you need to change it or you will be perma banned.


3) Vehicles/Flying
Vehicles may be used during a valid RP.. Please do not leave vehicles out for long periods of time. Examples motorcycles, Trucks, Cars, Skateboards. Vehicles must be 30 prims.

NO Fly….
This is a no fly sim… No flying Vehicles of any kind. Only people that is allowed to fly is Staff Only


4) Poaching:
Poaching is the act of going into a community and deliberatly trying to pull players from said community in order to strengthen another. We expect that people from other factions, other sims and other combat systems would not poach from us and in return we expect the same of our players and staff when visiting other sims.

Internal poaching within Onyxia is not allowed either, attempting to pull people from one faction into your own in a IC or OOC manner is strictly against the rules. Faction hopping in general is frowned upon but it does happen and when it does it needs to be strictly the players desicion to leave one faction and join another. To help avoid drama, when accepting a new member into your faction, who was just in another, you should OOCly speak to the leader of that faction and make sure they know, as a courtesy.


5) The CCS meter:

A meter must be warn at all times .You can get one for free in the Mall where you teleport in.


6)CCS camping:
Camping means you are not at your keyboard, not able to respond to those that approach you in roleplay or in combat. THIS IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. After 10 minutes of being unresponsive, your CCS will be detached and you will likely be ejected from the sim. A warning will be placed on your CCS database sheet and repeated camping offences will result in XP loss and eventual removal from CCS entirely.

Do not try to hide someplace out of the way in the sim or physically within the build (e.g. in walls, underground, up in the sky. If you aren't in a easily accessable/visable place where people can reach your to roleplay or combat you, then you'll be asked to move.

Apartment renters may hang out within their apartments all they want. If you have your CCS on and active, your door must remain unlocked.

Fines for XP Camping are:

First Offense - 1000 XP
Second Offense - 5000 XP
Third Offense - 10000 XP and Sim banned


7) Gestures/Sounds:
Gestures can be a fun enhancement to role play. Please use them appropriately and rarely. Do not spam gestures or sounds repeatedly as this disrupts role play and is annoying. Out of character gestures are not allowed.


8) Shouting:
Please keep shouting to a minimum and in conjunction with ongoing role play. OOC shouting is prohibited in the sim.


9) Harrassment:
Onyxia is a dark role play simulation. Activities many regard as "evil" are typical in Onyxia. Slavery, rape, murder, theft and random violence are all appropriate in a post-Apocalyptic world. Demons, vampires, lycanthropes, creatures from other planes, rapists, serial killers and similar creatures all roam the streets. This means that *characters* often act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways. This is to be expected given the nature of the simulation.

In-character protests often do not deter such activity because many *players* come to the sim looking for such things, regardless of what their *character* might want. If you do not wish to role play certain activities or with certain players then it is best to IM the other person out-of-character (OOC) and politely explain you are uncomfortable and find something you can roleplay that the both of you will enjoy.


10) Reporting problems:
Any issues, questions, instances of rules violations or any other problems can be brought to the GM staff. These are players with "GM" above their meter. Please be polite and straight forward with your issue so it can be addressed quickly. If you have a problem with a GM then bring it to the attention of Tabula Ducort or April Chung

Any accusations of cheating/metagaming/or any violation of any rule, must be brought to your faction head or a GM to be addressed. Do not make public accusations of cheating. Disrupting the game with OOC complaints in local chat will result in your temporary removal from the sim.


11) Rezzing objects:
Rezzing objects is permitted in Onyxia because RP sometimes requires various props, objects, pose balls and so forth to be added to the sim. Objects left lying around the sim count against the overall prim limit of the sim and reduce the amount for others to use so please pick them up when you're done using them. Renters, of course, can leave items in their apartments within their prim limits. Persistent disregarding of this rule or rezzing a large number of objects will result in disciplinary action. Borderlands is not a building zone.


12) Out of character:
Statements made out of character in the City Onyxia and most other RP communities is signified by speaking ((in brackets)). This is so your fellow players know what you are saying is not in character and helps minimize confusion between IC (in character) and OOC(out of character) statements.

Insulting, argumentative or those made in anger, stated OOC to other members of this community are completely PROHIBITED. If you have an issue that you feel requires the intervention of a mediator, contact a member of the City Onyxia's GM Team.


13) Meta-gaming:
As stated in the Onyxia combat rules, Meta-gaming is defined as: When a player has become aware of or told about information Out of character (OOC) pertaining to or directly regarding an ongoing storyline, situation or other player and then, by means of role play, uses that information either to their own benefit or as a means to interact with/against other players.

In a RP, it will be been allowed that two or more avatars are manage by the same person , one will be able to be used inside the RP and fights using CCS and others only for RP. There will not be able to use more than one avatar where the CCS is involved. This will be consider as doble boxing.

Use skills behind walls, climb a wall without such tools as stairs, rope or any other appliance that serves to raise the obstacle . For example: Dont use a hud to clim a wall of concrete. Dont jump a wall of 10 meters with a hud of super jumps . You always need to made RP to clim walls, jump or get into a lock place.

Building control access or place to be protected or to manage the prisioners:

In a RP you can block momentarily the access to some building and when a RP is done to justify it and the adversary has to find the way of being able to enter doing a RP and using some appliance to achieve the access to this area. For example, " Menganito closes the door of steel to avoid the access to the intruders ". The adversary can do a RP saying " Sultanito looks for an equipment of acetylene in the fire department (for example) and it cuts the hinges of the door and with the help of his friends it throws it aside " Use youre imagination. There are many things that we can do in order that the RP is as real as possible. Do not also try to knock down a door of steel as if out of wood (the setting is fundamental in this type of situations if the texture of the door is of wood, not say that it is of steel).

The Metagaming is basically all that in real life is not impossible to do and you try to integrate it into the RP. Be more realistic. Since it can see this sim has an beach theme and in the current time so you can use appliances that we use in our real lives to do your RP'S.


14) Faction chat/group chat:
Can be used as IC as long as it isn't about any current roleplay that is happening at that very moment. The faction chat should be used to talk or update each other on past events or future event planning, IC or OOC.


15) God modding:
God modding is negating everything someone does towards you or against you in RP because your character is so uber awesome i.e a god. This is silly and people who godmod will not only receive a ban for repeated offences, but will likely be branded by the playerbase as someone who isn't worth roleplaying with and you'll find time in all RP sims a very lonely time.


16) From the time you enter the sim there is NO safezone except the mall and the portal rezz zone down city ((rezz zone allowed for 5 min))


17) Going Non combative is only allowed when you haven't been involved in any hostile roleplay or combat for at least 10 minutes. If you need to go AFK for a few minutes, you must turn your CCS back on upon returning if someone requests it.


18) Once you make a melee attack or shoot at someone as well as using an offensive skill, you are to consider yourself in combat. To be melee attacked or shot also initiates combat, as does the use of an defensive skill.


19) Combat must include Role Play. An attack without some form of Role Play by individuals or groups, is prohibited.

Exceptions to this are:

Mutually consensual combat, i.e. sparring.

Combat as part of an event, i.e. tournaments

In other words, you can't just attack someone without an IC reason that has some roleplaying up front. Even group battles must have some sort of roleplay before the battle or invasion by the faction members or leaders.


20) If you are using melee combat, you need to have an animation that shows your character attacking. You may not engage in melee combat without a visual indication that you are actually attacking.


21) No movement enhancers while in combat. No dashers, no flash steps, no gadgets that make you phantom, no jumpers or flight assists, wall climbers, etc. Using any form of enhanced movement or teleportation will result in disciplinary action.


22) Turning off, removing, or resetting your CCS meter is illegal during combat. Once all RP associated with the combat is over, you may remove your meter if you wish. Removing your meter or resetting it during combat to avoid defeat or regain health, however, is not allowed and will result in punishment.


23) We allow 2 weapons in total per AV only. The following Combinations are the allowed in Isle of Bliss (Onyxia)

a) 2 Melee Weapons in (1 henanced right hand and 1 mele weapon to left hand)
b) 2 Handguns/semi-auto like Uzi or mac10 in 2 hands (and no Melee whatsoever)
c) 1 Handgun/semi-auto like Uzi or mac10 and 1 melee weapon
d) 1 two handed gun (like SAW, M60, M32 etc) and a melee animation
e) all weapon fist fight are considered two hands!!!

Any violation of this or an attempt to wear hidden HUDs will result in severe penalties.

For Melee only one CCS enhanced weapon per AV is allowed, you can't have 2 CCS enhanced weapons on your AV. This is not the case for guns — guns strictly follow the rules above.


24) You may call for help in tense situations but it MUST be RP'd and u have to use a phone booth which are on certain points in the sim.. ´´

You may NOT call for help if you have been defeated.

TP-ing people into a combat situation is not allowed.


25) If you crashed during a group fight, you must wait 10 minutes before rejoining the battle if it is still going. If the fight is already over, it's best to come into the RP on whichever side your group is currently in, whether they won or lost.


26) CCS healing beds/poseballs cannot be used while in combat. There is no fighting while you are on a hospital bed.

Only CCS approved enhanced items or healing balls can be used to heal after combat.

In the event you are attacked while on a heal bed you must get off the bed to retaliate. Attacks against players who are using a hospital heal bed MAY occur.


27) Do not use any device that turns you invisible during combat. No devices or any items that make your avatar invisible are permissible during combat. This includes cloaking devices, gadgets that sink your avatar into the ground or any device that renders your avatar invisible to direct line-of-sight to another player.


28) Personal roleplay limits are allowed if you're uncomfortable with a certain roleplay. This is for people that truely find a particular roleplay disturbing on a severe level.

If you have a certain type of roleplay as a limit, you cannot perform that roleplay on others.


29) Corpse camping is where you stand around a body and wait for the person to revive and then kill them again with the sole intention of being a jerk. CCS killing someone who is trying to flee or fight again is allowed, even if they've just rezzed.

Even if the revive is due to a timer, a racial skill, or if revived by another, if you are already RPing, your character bound or trapped, you should continue to roleplay the scene, not negate it because CCS decided to revive you.


30) Revives:
Natural Revive takes 5 minutes. When someone revives naturally they have only less 30 HP. Players are not allowed to kill or use any skills on anyone who has just naturally revived unless they attack first or use a skill themselves.

If they are healer revived, restored or resurrected, they are fair game and may be considered a target


31) When you're defeated in CCS combat, it's just the same as if you were defeated in a long drawn out roleplay combat. With your health at 0, you cannot fight back anymore, not thru CCS and not thru roleplay. You are at the mercy of the victor.


32) If you need to log off or the RP is going in a direction that makes you uncomfortable or breaks one of your limits, you may Fade to Black (FTB). If you fade to black, you MAY NOT engage in combat again with the party for 24 hours.

Fading to black is NOT the same as voiding a scene. When you fade to black, you simply fast forwards, skipping whatever portion of the RP that would make you feel uncomfortable, if not the whole scene. Your character is STILL EFFECTED BY THIS.

Fading a scene should be avoided at all costs, just as voiding should. Talk in IM's with the other people involved, compromise and remember that this is just RP. If you need to leave (log off) then you need to leave but still, come to a compromise on what happened to your character in your absense and RP the effects the next time you log on.

Abusing the fade to black rule will result in disciplinary action. It is not a way to avoid having to do defeat RP. Keep in mind RP is for everyone, not just for you. By fading to black, you are taking away from other people's RP and in turn, people may not wish to RP with you as often.


33) Post combat OOC comments:
Whether from the victorious party gloating or the loser complaining will not be tolerated. If there is a REAL issue consult a GM immediately otherwise keep it IC RP only. OOC insults and rude comments will result in disciplinary action. This includes negative comments or insults made in IMs as well as in the open. Be an adult about things, it is only a GAME.


34) No Moving Corpses:
Once you are dead then you are dead. You must wait till you revive naturally or are revived by a healer or through a racial skill. You are not permitted to move unless you are being dragged or moved by another as part of an roleplay. Also a suggestion, try to turn off your AO while defeated so the Override standing animation doesn't confuse anyone.


35) Death/Permanent injury:
You can only inflict death or permanent injury with the consent of the other party.


36) Sim Border Abuse:
As we all know, SL is broken into sims and as a person crosses from one sim to another, they lag terribly. Running from sim to sim in an escape is acceptable. You are allowed to try and flee and in your attempt to escape your attacker, you are allowed to run as far and wide as you wish until CCS defeated or you escape. One thing that is not allowed, however is sim jumping. Sim jumping is repeated sim crossing. Purposely abusing the lag generated by a sim cross in order to gain advantage over your enemy.

Sniping across sim borders is allowed.


37) RP limits:
Roleplay limits are things you find particularly disturbing to play out, something you just can't stomache doing, even in a fantasy setting. Your limits are your own and while everyone may not agree with them, you're allowed to have them. However, they should be serious limits. You should not go into a dark RP sim and have NO DARK RP as your limit. Try your best to find the CCS sim that fits you closest and if your limits come up, work with that person to find a different RP that you'd both enjoy. DO NOT agree to do a RP that you have a issue with doing and then complain about it later on. If you agree, then you agree and do not have the right make a issue out of it.


Respect a GM!!

GM's are there to help you resolve any issues, All conversations with GM's are considered OOC, so be careful what you say. Be polite and have logs ready, do not be difficult and defensive. If a GM is dealing with a situation, please allow them time to deal with it. They will listen to both sides before making a call. If you disagree with a GM's decision you can appeal to a senior GM or sim owner/ Admins Contact
