The Oracle
Aug 26, 2019
These rules are subject to change at any given time by the Owners. It is YOUR responsibility to keep up with changes made to this page.
2. All Staff Decisions are final. If you take issue or feel you have been unfairly treated by a Staff Member, report them in the 'Report Staff' sub-forum.
3. Staff also retain the right to disallow someone access to the server if they feel as though they are going to be a negative impact and may also do so for current players, even if they have not broken rules but have a consistent negative impact on the community.

Real Money & GenesisServers
We do not condone the purchase of in-game items outside of our store, asking for money in return for in-game items or selling in-game items for real-life money is seen as "scamming" as there is no way to prove that it is a legitimate transaction and that it's safe for the person(s) involved. If caught doing this, you'll likely receive a permanent ban from the server.
GenesisServers are not liable for any transactions made between players outside of our store with real-life money and you'll be held solely accountable for your actions, as will the person offering money/taking the money. You have been warned.

Random Death Match (RDM): This is the act of killing other players without any justification. A death from another player of the same faction is considered RDM when there were no grounds to kill the player.
Staff: The term staff refers to members of the community who have been elevated to volunteer in order to enforce server rules or help members of the community with server related issues.
Faction Leadership: This refers to the top two ranks of a faction (Master of the Order, Emperor's Voice, Grandmaster, Emperor).
In-Character (IC): The term is used to define role-play or actions that are considered as part of a character in a fictional environment (In this case, Star Wars: Jedi Vs Sith) that is in some form different from an individual’s real personality.
Arrest On Sight (AOS): This is the practice of ordering people to be arrested due to them breaking an in-character rule.
Kill on Sight (KOS): This is the practice of ordering people to be killed when sighted.
Communications (/j, /s, /comms): Used to communicate important information between factions and during downtime for in-character roleplay.
Out-of-character chat (/ooc, //): Used for general out-of-character chatter.
Private Message (PM): Used to privately talk to other players this can be in-character if the player deems it so.
FearRP: An example of breaking FearRP would be not being afraid of death and not willing to die as a result of this. If you are at risk, you must play with it.
FailRP: Breaking any RP-related rules is classed as FailRP.
Player Kill (PK): This is when a player is Perma-killed/Player-killed, meaning the individual will lose not only their faction role and some levels.
New Life Rule (NLR): When you have died during Role-play you cannot return back to your original position until a specified time has passed, New Life Rule literally means that you have "died". You must act as if nothing has happened or that you were simply not there. Upon dying in general PvP (conquests, raids and timed events are excluded), you must wait 2 minutes before returning after re-spawning.
Inappropriate Content: Inappropriate Content is defined as anything said, posted, linked, or described in an out of character manner. This mainly includes sexual content, but can be expanded to include gore, malicious links, and private information (private information being a user's personal information,).
Exploiting: Exploiting is defined as knowingly using bugs, glitches, cheats, or software to gain an advantage over other players. This may include using third-party software, using a known bug, or finding an unknown bug and hiding it to use to your advantage.
Meta-gaming: Using information obtained via out-of-character means.
Advertising: Advertising is defined as drawing attention to another community, or to another service/product. Advertising another community or a service/product will result in a ban.
Leeching: Leeching is defined as actively attempting to bring players from the Genesis Servers community to another community. This may include inviting them to play on another community repeatedly, offering perks/ranks to go to that community, or mentioning the other community repeatedly. Leeching is a ban that can be increased to a permaban.
Disrespect: Disrespect is defined as offensive language (including racism) or actions towards an individual or group of people.
Harassment: Harassment is defined as repeated unwanted verbal abuse towards an individual. Harassment may result in a permanent ban.
Minge/Minging: The act of being troublesome or intentionally breaking rules in order to cause chaos and disorder on the server and/or annoyance to its player base. This may include intentionally breaking In-character rules (see FailRP), or server rules like mic spamming and RDM. Also sometimes known as NITRP.
Spamming: This involves repeatedly and rapidly flooding messages into a certain chat-box. A variant callled Mic-Spamming exists for continuous sound down a microphone. The threshold for Mic-Spamming is usually reached when other players get annoyed or staff find it inappropriate.
Planetary Conquest: This is when a faction attempts to lay siege and gain control of a non-home-world planet..
