Toril Rules

Island of Toril Rules:
Version: 11/26/11

Welcome to Toril. We welcome you and hope your experience is as enjoyable as ROLE PLAY possible. If you follow the rules of Toril then your time with us will be great and issue free. We are a role playing sim first and last. ROLEPLAY IS REQUIRED BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER ANY ATTACK. This is a dark and violent role play sim. Please be mature and respectful at all times of others and their role play. Clothing must be of the time frame of Toril. Medeval/Fantasy/Fae this includes silks. Not acceptable forms of attire are modern, jeans, and anything the GMs deem unfit for the sim they pay for. If you have any questions about these rules or need clarification, please contact a GM in Toril chat.

DUE TO CHANGES IN THE TERMS OF SERVICE OF SECOND LIFE, ENTERING TORIL YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE OF SECOND LIFE AND THE RULES OF THIS SIM ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN YEARS AND WILL NOT BE OFFENDED BY VIOLENCE ADULT LANGUAGE OR SEXUAL CONTENT OF THIS SIM. TORIL OWNERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE BEYOND THIS AGREEMENT IN LEGAL LIABILITY ON THE PERSON / PEOPLE WHO DO NOT EXCEED THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN YEARS AND THAT VIOLATE THESE RULES. ARE CONSIDERED TO BE COMMITTING A BREACH AND SO ARE LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS.

Toril is an English speaking SIM. It is mandatory to use a translator if the language spoken is different from English. In our landing point you can take a free copy of a translator!

We are a new Sim and reserve the right to update and change rules as we move along and grow. If you have suggestions please use mail box in entrance mall to send one to GMs.

Reducing Lag:
The maximum number of allowable scripts and memory usage to be use by an avatar in Toril is 250 scripts and 10,000K of Sim memory. If you are unsure of what your avatar is costing there is a detector in the telehub when you first enter the sim. Maximum bandwidth to be used is 500. Please make sure it is set to this or under as you enter the sim as some viewers default setting is much higher then this. Also, as Toril uses many sculpted prims is is best to set your rendervolumeLODfactor to 4.00 or higher. This can be found under the Advanced menu —> Debug Settings.

1. CCS HUD AND METER:
CCS HUD and METER are required to participate in CCS combat. By wearing a CCS Meter you are consenting to CCS confrontation, but remember in this sim roleplay BEFORE & AFTER. Not all combat has to use CCS. If wearing CCS METER must be visible at all times and the color must be legible so not difficult to read or see. The black color is prohibited. We require roleplay in this Sim over everything else. If you wish to not wear a CCS hud and roleplay only, we will respect that and encourage all our guests to as well. If you wish to just look about and not participate in any roleplay or combat, you must wear observer tag.

2. XP CAMPING:
Camping to get experience (XP) without participating in ROLE PLAY is strictly prohibited. In the event you need to leave or be away from your keyboard, your CCS meter should be placed in “Non-combative” status. XP Camping will not be allowed. It will result in warnings, experience deductions and even possible banning from the sim.

3. WEAPONS:
All weapons must be CCS approved. See CCS note card or website for more information on what is approved and what is not. No modern weapons and no guns what so ever. We are a medieval sim so follow the dates of such things. Ranged should be bow or crossbow type only and wooden in making. Any Questions of the weapon, ask a GM.
􀀂

5. CLAN INCURSION OR HIGH LEVEL PLAYERS:
Toril Sim will not tolerate incursions of clans and top players to harass our low level players, if a high-level faction ignores this rule, your group/clan will be banned immediately. If there is a consensus ROLE PLAY between the low and high levels, then welcome. This shall be left to teh discretion of sim management. Remember there must be role play before AND after all CCS battles/duels.

7. REPORT PROBLEMS:
Any subject matter related to rule violations may be referred to the group of GMs. These are players with the GM title at the top of their meter. Please be polite and direct with your questions or issues that can be solved quickly.
During the course of ROLE PLAY, GM's decision this is FINAL and not to be argued or abused. Any accusation of cheating should be reported to a GM role play chat NOT in IMs.

8. CAPTURE / RELEASE / DEFEAT:
All ROLE PLAY must be consensual of all parties. It is always necessary to have an IC reason to attack and require role play before, during and after an attack. Just because the player felt like it is NOT a reason.

You must have some form of role play at least 10 minutes before throwing the first punch or using a CCS skill and within 15 minutes after the CCS battle.

Capture/Defeat happens to us all. Defeat is not death, but with defeat you must role play hurt, weakened and/or injured. With this in mind, the defeated party is at the winner’s mercy, for a time period of 15 minutes. Period! No healing, No skilling, No running away. Teleporting/tping out or logging off will NOT be allowed after a defeat without the express permission of the other players involved or a GM. After fifteen minutes then you may attempt to escape BUT godmoding or meta-gaming will not be allowed. (See Rule 11. GODMODING/METAGAMING) You can be held captive for a period no longer than 30 minutes, unless defeated person allows for a longer capture. Killing the character permanently is expressly forbidden without the consent of all those involved.

IF you use use CCS skills/melee on captor(s) while ATEMPING to escape, after the 15 minutes after defeat, then your captor(s) has the right to use CCS skills/melee on you. If the captive party is NOT using CCS skills then the captor(s) may not use CCS skills to keep captive in their control. This is considered CORPSE Camping. Corpse Camping is using CCS to keep a player dead of health and in their control. It is a form of GodModing. Corpse Camping is not allowed in Toril.

You can call for help during the role play, from the first line of role play. Calling for help must be done in role play form. Example: Autumn shouts "Help!" ALL calls for help can only be done in SHOUT. There will be no using chats or IMs to gather help. Teleporting others into a battle once it has begun is expressly forbidden.

9. ROLE PLAY LIMITS:
You must respect everyone ROLE PLAY limits and if someone doesn't have limits, the maximum capture for him/her is 10 minutes. It is a good idea to find out what a players limits are before engaging them in any role play that might offend another player. If problems arise in middle of a role play and both parties can not agree on limits, then end the role play or call a GM only if other rules are broken like OOC used or CCS abused.

10. OOC:
If you need to talk out of character ((OOC)), you can do this by using double parentheses before AND after the sentences, or /22. EXAMPLES -> ((I bought a pair of pants today)) or /22 I bought a pair of pants today. The role play chat is also for OOC conversation. PLEASE Keep all OOC in local chat to a minimum (avoid if possible) or risk a GM being called. OOC chatter disrupts role play for others so be considerate. If you have question or remark, share it in group chat and keep role play area ooc free.

OOC insults are not allowed EVER!!! We are very strict when it comes to OOC insults here in Toril which can turn a role play fun time into something annoying if someone is insulted. If we have any reports about insults you will be warned, is you are caught insulting again, you will be banned for a day, and any other report will be a ban for three days and even for good. Swearing insults and personal attacks will make you banned from the sim.

Toril Role play Group chat is OOC but if you wish to make a post to entice others to come play, feel free to role play post in group chat as well. Though you may get a spam of OOC comments.

11. GODMODING / METAGAMING:
NO GODMODING allowed in Toril. The claim to be invincible, all powerful, or undefeatable is godmoding. Attacking other players for no reason and forcing a ROLE PLAY or combat is GODMODING. You have been warned.

NO META-GAMING tolerated in Toril. Meta-gaming is the act by which you acquire information OOC and use it for a ROLE PLAY with out learning it IC. You have been warned.

12. NUDITY / SEX IN PUBLIC:
This is an Adult sim and as such nudity/sex may occur but please be tasteful and respectful of those around you. Please be respectful and mature to anyone in this lack of attire. Keep sex quiet unless you want an audience and if do then at all times keep a sword handy!!! You have been warned.

13. AVATARS CHILDREN / CHILD:
Children or avatars that look like children are not allowed, UNLESS given special permission by the Owner of the Sim. Any avatar 1.5 m of height (4 feet, 9 inches) or smaller will be considered a child avatar. Anyone without special permission in the sim to play a child avatar will be reported in GM Global and banned from the sim. Any sexual advances, innuendos or sexual activity with an infant/child avatar is strictly prohibited and it will not be tolerated. This behavior will result in immediate expulsion and permanent banning from the Sim.

14. GESTURES:
Gestures is NOT permitted. Any gesture that contains music or sounds that are not justified in the development of ROLE PLAY are forbidden.

15. SHOUTS:
Shouting IC over the course of a ROLE PLAY is allowed, as long as not being misused. The Shouting OOC is not allowed as it interferes with the development of ROLE PLAY.

16. VEHICLES / FLY:
This strictly prohibited the use of motor vehicles and flying in the Sims.
If you have any doubt whether the object has considered using this vehicle, proceed prior to contact a GM, which will resolve your doubt.

17. REZZED OBJECTS:
Rezzed objects in the Sim are not allowed, unless a renter or owner or land manager. This is to ensure the stability of Sim and continued role play of all. Failure to observe / ignore this rule will result in disciplinary action. Toril is not a Sandbox.

18. ROLEPLAY AREA
All areas under 500 feet are considered role play areas. Please try and respect privacy of the residences but be aware all areas are role play zones.

19. OTHER NO No’s
No camping, no jumping enhancers, no cages, and orbits. No motor vehicles or anything that causes huge amounts of lag. This is included poofers, teleporter effects and personal teleportation devices. Any players who use forbidden devices for CCS (HUDs attack, spamming, shields, artifacts that do to your avatar invincible … etc.) will be removed from Sim immediately and possibly banned from returning.

20. GM INTERVENTION:
During the ROLE PLAY, if it is stopped by a GM, IT IS STOPPED. So cease all hostile activity, use of ALL skills and STOP being offensive. The decision of a GM should be observed and not contested by OOC in the general chat.
Admins and GM's have the last word. Admins and Gms are here to see that the Role play is running smoothly. If you are rude and impatient with the Admins and Gms expect to be thrown out or even banned.

21. BANNED/DOCKED:
If you are docked and/or banned for violating any of the rules of the Sim, you can proceed to contact SIM ADMIN if you think that was unfair or abusive.
Doing this does not guarantee the reversal of decision.

22. ROLEPLAY AWARDS
Roleplay awards are to be issued according to the guidelines on the ccs website (see http://ccs-gametech.com/viewpage.php?page_id=51). Please use the attached format when submitting your roleplay. Failure to use it may result in xp not being awarded. Please make sure to use sl user name not character for full experience.
􀀁

Log strippers can also be used, and are highly suggested, in order to clean up chat.
The following ones are suggested :
http://rplogtool.appspot.com/ (crossroads style)
http://zoni.nl/logstripper/

The initial one has a tendency to wipe out posts by people that entirely emote, therefore we have found it is good to use a combination of both. The initial one for names of participants in the roleplay and the second to clean the log itself.
