The Definition


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.

Meta-gaming can include the use of radars or other devices which can show you the location of another player. Such devices should not be used within the chain.

This is extremely aggravating for those players and staff who are trying to provide fun and possibly in-depth stories for the players in the sim and is therefore prohibited in the game.

Tip: It would be considered meta-gaming to use the name of a character from having read their name above their head. Remember, unless you have been formally introduced, or have direct IC knowledge of that players name….you do not know them!


Godmodding 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 possibly face bans for repeated offenses, but will likely be branded by the player base as someone who isn't worth role-playing with and you'll find time in all RP sims a very lonely time. Players must realize that ALL CCS races are subject to harm in some way!

Tip: Always state that you are ATTEMPTING an action. For example, You throw a rock at Player A. You are now giving Player A the opportunity to dodge the rock if they RP it correctly. Try not to assume that every action will work, or get angry if it is countered. This is normal game play, but nobody is invincible!
