[CoTF] Realms RP and Chill - Path of Titans

Rules

This is a Role Play and Chill Server

This is different to realism in that, you are not fixed to dinosaur traits laid out by palaeontologists. You play as your dinosaur, how you play is up to you. You can just chill and chat or you can role play a Stegosaurus with anger issues, or a friendly Daspletosaurus. Maybe you want to offer up a sacrifice of a Struthiomimus to the Allosaurus down the road? Go for it.

Try not to metagame, have fun with the role play story ideas, do not always aim to be the best of the best just because that's what everyone else does. There are certain rules to the server to help with keeping relative peace.

The main rules being;

  • No spamming, trolling, flaming etc

  • No mass territory claiming by one clan

  • No being rude or insulting others

Targeting, bullying, name calling or anything toxic is a huge no no. Please be civil to one another, this is a game for all to enjoy

Our designated chill out area is Grassland Lake. No fighting is allowed here unless agreed by both parties involved and does not endanger anyone else. If you wonder elsewhere, you must expect to be hunted. Even if you state you are playing chill.

If you are outside Grassland Lake and get confronted, you can request not to be attacked by stating you are chilling, and your aggressor can choose to continue the attack or walk away, but do not use this statement to gain an advantage in a fight or if you are actually role playing.

Talking in game or in the discord to settle disputes or request access to food/water is encouraged instead of just using dinosaur sounds and movements

Be friendly at your own risk in game, not everyone is playing a friendly dinosaur

The other rules are as follows;
 

  1. Hunting and Body Down Rules

    We run a body down rule when hunting. When a body drops, all fighting must stop. No attacking the same group/surviving dinosaur(s) for an hour after the body is finished and the attackers have left the area.

    If you are defending, you can keep attacking until the attackers leave you be. Regardless of the creatures you, as a defender, kill in defence.

    All attackers giving up on a fight must do a "submit" call and (if carnivore) must stay with the body until it is finished if it is too much to carry away in one go. Once the body is gone and the attackers have left the area, there is a 1 hour cool down before the herd can be attacked again. All carnivores that participated in the hunt must leave the area after the body is gone else the timer will not start.

    This is the same for herbivore attackers. You cannot attack the same herd/creature if the body of the previous attack is still on the floor. Only after scavengers have cleaned it up completely, and an hour past, may you attack again

    > Attacking carnivores can claim a body if it was killed in defence, therefore forfeiting the hunt.
    > Only the attackers can forfeit a hunt.
    > Defending creatures must not follow fleeing creatures who have "submit" called in this instance.
    > Defenders must allow carnivores space if they have claimed a body
    > Attacking herbivores that win against carnivores/fliers must leave the area and allow the defeated carnivores/fliers to eat/carry the food away or clean up.
    Unless all the carnivores/fliers have been killed or fled.

    You do not need to call out before attacking anyone - "submit" calling as prey before being attacked will not necessarily mean the attacker will leave you alone

     

  2. Territory and Claiming
    Only one lake/POI can be claimed by any one dinosaur or group of dinosaurs at any one time. The territory is only yours as long as your herd/pack is logged in and at the area. Once you have logged, you no longer exist in the world and therefore do not own that area. This means that when you next log in, you may need to reclaim your land should someone else have moved in.

    Water Source Claiming
    All creatures can claim a water source, however they must stay in the area to keep it as "theirs"

    Nesting, Insectivore and Herbivore Food Areas
    Sometimes nesting or food areas are further from water, you can claim an area as your nesting or food spot as long as you are actually using it as a food or nesting place. Again, you will need to stay in the area to defend it.

    Territory Fights
    All attacking groups must do a threat display before attacking. This must last a enough time for the defenders to decide if they wish to fight or leave, for example a minute or more.

    If the defenders submit before a fight initiates, the attackers win and must allow them to leave with no deaths.

    If a fight must initiate, the body down rule still applies when attacking for claim of a territory. First body down means that pack/herd loses and must leave. All fighting must stop when the attacking or defending group leaves the territory.

    > If the attacking group wins the fight, they claim the area, it is now their territory. 
    > They must not leave the area.
    > Fleeing creatures must "submit" call and not be chased/followed/killed off.

    Territories can only be around a full small water source or part of water sources if the lakes/river is too large.
    Swimmers can claim any lakes or rivers they can gain access to and feed from

    Using the water or food source of another territory owner
    It is up to the territory owner to allow those of other species or those outside of their clan to drink from their water. Talk to people in game or via discord to request access.

    Unclaimable lakes
    Titan Lake
     

  3. Location giving, tracking and calling for back-up
    In no circumstances must you give locations to anyone in general/public chat, keep it to private DMs via Discord or Whispers (in game).

    Targeting members is forbidden, if you happen to see/hear via a chat where someone is, you are not allowed to go there just to attack them.

    Players are not allowed to track others down with one dinosaur and swap said dinosaur to partake in an easy fight.

    Players are not allowed to call in back up for a fight, either by getting friends to log in to help or getting others from elsewhere on the server to come and assist. This includes calculated mass log-ins to attack someone or a group.

     

  4. Group Mixing

    No group mixing; Dinosaurs are split into groups as below; - Land Carnivores (including piscivores) - Herbivores - Swimmers (not yet implemented) - Fliers (not yet implemented)

    Players cannot mix between groups, i.e. herbivores cannot mix with fliers, swimmers cannot mix with carnivores and so on. Therefore clans can only be one group type. The only exception to this are omnivores. 


    If you cannot group up with them in game, you cannot play along side them.

    Max Pack/Herd count is limited to in game pack/herd numbers

     

  5. Body/Food Guarding
    Herbivores are not allowed to guard bodies, same as with carnivores/swimmers/fliers not allowed to defend trees/bushes from herbivores. Herbivores can protect bushes, food roots etc from other herbivores, carnivores can protect bodies from other carnivores etc

    Basically if you cannot eat it, you cannot guard it from others

    Threaten roar to contest food, "submit" call to give up the food, you must walk away and not re-contest your lost food after regaining health
    Continuing to eat gives acceptance to the contest. Fights can continue until the ones giving up "submit" call and move away
    You must not pursue those who have "submit" called and begun moving away

    Food can be shared amongst other creatures but they must not stay in the same area to finish the food. I.e. mini gore can be taken from the larger gore and moved elsewhere

    Food can also be stolen if you are brave enough. This does increase your risk of death though. Those who have had food stolen can give chase or continue to protect what food they have left. If the offender gets away, i.e. you can no longer see your food source, you cannot pursue them any more.

To report anyone for rule breaking, video evidence or screenshots (if reporting text offences) must be submitted via our discord to staff.
