ROLEPLAY RULES (MAJOR CRIMES)
Major crimes include bank robberies, store robberies and jewellery heists. (to be changed in future) There is a scripted timer in place visible at the bottom left of your screen showing when one can be committed. Please don't refer to this as the 'robbery timer', get creative.
ALL participants (no more than 5) of these robberies MUST be inside of the building being robbed (immediate vicinity is allowable, such as getaway drivers parked right at the door). No external help.
If police arrive on scean, the first step should be to negotiate with them. Failure to do this within the first minute of arrival could result in the police taking further action.
Hostages must be announced and proof of life quickly shown before they can be taken seriously. [Max 5 minutes to show proof before they can be invalid]
Hostages must be organic, no paid actors or friends.
Hostages are allowed to attempt to flee, if not being watched, or held at gun/knife point.
Negotiations may be called off, if a reasonable attempt at negotiating has been made and an agreement cannot be made due to unreasonable demands. Once this happens, each party has 20 seconds to withdraw their negotiators before any further actions happen.
All demands must be well thought out and clearly stated. Both parties reserve the right to follow any demands to the letter, and not the spirit of the request. [i.e 'We want to leave' does not mean 'We want to leave, get in our car and drive away'
The MAXIMUM you can demand for a civilian hostage is £5,000, police are £15,000. [This may not be possible due to no senior police available to authorise this exchange]
EXTERNAL POWERS (WHERE NO SCRIPT EXISTS)
It is not always possible for us to script things that benefit roleplay, below is a list of agreed powers that the police or medics may request to happen.
The examples given in brackets are not exhaustive and each instance will be taken on its own merit. Strong evidence (photos, videos) must be given before any of these are acted upon.
Sieze your vehicle because it was used in a crime [i.e you use your own vehicle to rob a store and are caught]
Sieze assets (money, property) when it can be proven they were illegitimately gained [i.e you rob a store and are able to wash the dirty money before you are caught.]
Pronounce you dead, resulting in a reset of your character. [i.e you roleplay comitting suicide]
If you are a member of the police/medics please contact your superiors and have them create a ticket if they would like to proceed with any of these.
