    The Shift

    Lawless Roleplay is a server made by players for players, we try making the server as amusing as possible. After a long discussion and community polls we have finally made the decision to switch over to light roleplay, moving towards a more roleplay environment as requested.

    By changing our level of roleplay, there will be a few new rules which are being applied. These rules are metagaming and powergaming, more explanation will be given further below in this thread.

    There are three different levels of roleplay associated with San Andreas Multiplayer, these are: light roleplay, medium roleplay and heavy roleplay. However, none of these levels were applicable on our server since the roleplay level we were making use of was dynamic roleplay.

    Dynamic Roleplay

    For multiple years we were a dynamic roleplay server, this was something unique since Lawless Roleplay invented this level of roleplay. We were not forcing our players to roleplay but we did give them the opportunity.

    But sadly enough, most of the players did not roleplay because they were fearing other players would not roleplay with them either. By switching to light roleplay we're trying to stop that and make everyone able to roleplay and develop their own character(s).

    With dynamic roleplay you had the chance whether not to roleplay or roleplay, ofcourse, many of the players did not roleplay and this is a huge disadvantage for people that play here hoping to have a nice roleplay experience.

    Light Roleplay

    Light roleplay contains two new rules which are metagaming and powergaming, this forces players to roleplay but at a specific level. This means you'll have to stay in-character unless you're talking through the OOC chat.

    It doesn't matter what you are out of character, your character on Lawless Roleplay could be everything. From a famous rapper to a police officer or maybe even a drug dealer! What we're trying to make clear is that your character has it's own personality and style, let your imagination do it's thing.

    Now since light roleplay will be enforced, players will have to communicate and roleplay with each other. However, you're still not forced to roleplay every single situation for example, taking out heavy weapons or putting your keys in the ignition.

    New Rules

    Since we are switching to another roleplay level which is light roleplay, there will be a few new rules implemented. The staff team will make sure that these new implemented rules get obeyed ofcourse. More explanation regarding these rules can be found below.

    Metagaming is mixing up OOC content with IC content or vice versa. Everything said should stay in-character unless it's said over the OOC chat (/b) ofcourse. This does not allow players to talk about OOC situations for example through their cellphone or whispering. Examples:

    Barney Phife whispers to John Williams, saying: Hey bro, can you check what I sent you on the forums?

    Toompert Daman sees Immad Carter and starts shouting: Yo man get on our TeamSpeak 3 server!

    You won't be able to give OOC information through the IC chats.

    Powergaming is when you roleplay unrealistic actions, forcing others to roleplay while you're not giving them a chance. This rule does not let you make up situations that did not happen and gives every player a fair chance. This also includes roleplaying different situations which you wouldn't be able to do script-wise. Examples:

    *Raz Barack picks up the truck, throwing it at Rio Flocka with his super powers.*

    *Dominic Fontaine would be holding a magic stick that can kill everyone. ((Dominic Fontaine))*

    Other examples are, getting tazed by a police officer but standing up and running away or roleplaying you don't have items on you while you do have that item on you script-wise. Same goes for healing, you are not able to do this in the middle of a gunfight obviously.

    Failing to follow these rules has consequences, the punishments can be found here.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Does this mean we have to roleplay everything we do?
    A: No, we'll switch over to the lowest level of roleplay which is light roleplay. We are not forcing players to roleplay every single thing that happens.

    Q: Do we have to roleplay taking out weapons?
    A: No, you don't. It doesn't matter what size weapon it is, since it's light roleplay, you're not meant to roleplay taking out weapons.

    Q: When are we switching over to light roleplay?
    A: We are switching over light roleplay from 14th December, 2017.

    Q: What do we do now when we want to kill someone?
    A: You must have a decent in-character reason before killing someone, failing to do so will result in a punishment.

    Q: Are there any other new rules getting implemented besides powergaming and metagaming?
    A: No, these two are the only added rules that comes with light roleplay.

    Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding this in the comments section below. We will be more than happy to assist you.

    Have a lovely day!
