    DreamWorld is a GTA V RP server that heavily focuses on voice/text roleplay.

    We promote quality roleplay here at DreamWorld and want community members to have fun RPing, creating interesting characters and developing unique stories.

    We want every member to have an incredible RP experience but above all we expect every member to treat each other with respect.

    General Server Rules


    Account Ownership and Responsibility
    • Each account is the property and responsibility of the person who created it.
    • Players are not permitted to share their accounts, play on the accounts of other players or have others play on their accounts.
    • Any rule break found on your account is your responsibility.
    • Accounts are non-transferable for real world currency.

    Real World Trading

    Real World Trading is defined as trading anything outside of the IC environment for anything of value in-game. This is not allowed under any circumstances.

    • Trading items without enough IC reasoning is considered a breach of the rules.
    • Selling firearms without establishing a proper IC relationship
    • Giving cars away without strong IC reasons and selling a property for less money to an OOC friend are a few of the many examples of how this rule can be broken.

    • You may not transfer anything between any of your characters without an approved asset transfer request.
    • Using donator features to make IC money (selling credits for IC cash);
    • Trading items that have value in real life, or items on another roleplay community or platform in return for items of value on DreamWorld
    • Giving assets or money away because you're name changing, CKing or leaving the server
    • Paying real money for Dreamworld money
    • Transferring money from one of your characters to another without admin approval
    • Setting up trades for OOC transfers to appear legitimate via IC means (i.e. a fake deal).
    Anyone that provides assistance to other community members breaching this rule will also be punished.

    Faction Rules
    • Corruption rule -
      Any members of a legal faction may be corrupt however; members will be subject to OOC & IC punishment for their actions. Actions that involve major rule breaks such as powergaming and metagaming will be handled OOCly. If corrupt, players MUST provide detailed roleplay with valid reason backing their actions.


      Examples of how corruption should NOT be roleplayed:
      • Using and altering restricted vehicles, weapons, items, or information you would otherwise not have access to. (Script abuse)
      • Failing to properly roleplay an act of corruption as you would be under fear rp. (Fear of getting caught)
      • Using information from an alternate character in an illegal faction to affect your roleplay as a member in a legal faction.

      Examples of how corruption should be roleplayed:
      • Ensuring to set realistic boundaries for your roleplay, to prevent powergaming and metagaming.
      • Recognizing the risks and rewards of your corruption.
      • Documenting your roleplay by taking screenshots or videos. (OOC Proof of proper execution of corruption)


        OOC Corruption Rule -Members will have to request permission from the faction leader to be corrupt. They will have to explain the type of corruption they are trying to implement and the reasoning behind it. Once approved by the faction leader, the member may get final approval from faction management. Approval will be given on a case by case basis,meaning that if the faction leader and or staff feel as if the member requesting OOC Corruption is unable to properly perform the roleplay their request will be denied. Requests from players that continuously break server rules and or fail to provide proper roleplay will be denied.


        OOC Corruption Rule Punishment:Perma ban / 30 Day appeal



    Player Rules


    Metagaming - MG

    Metagaming: is the act of using/relying on OOC information by any third party software or ways that are not in-game, as IC is Prohibited, It can also be said as the act of using information IC that was obtained by OOC means and it is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to:

    • Using discord or another third party software to communicate with other players in-game.
    • Telling someone In-Character information OOCly in a third party software.
    • Using forum thread information to gain an advantage.
    • Using OOC information IC.

    New Life Rule-NLR

    New Life Rule: is the concept of your character forgetting information leading to his death, only when you respawn at the hospital.

    • A player does not have an ability to force his own death in an RP situation.
    • The rule is triggered upon the player respawning at the hospital.
    • A player has the ability to force his own death only at these criteria.
    • If no medical treatment was applied on an injured player within 10 minutes
    • If there is no one around the player and his death doesn't affect other players RP
    • In an RP situation that the injured player got finished off via /me
    • The “Dead” character loses all information and memory leading to his death, the events that caused it and any information collected in that time frame.
    • Player is not to allow to go back to the scene where he got killed or injured and hospitalized for the next 30 minutes,otherwise he will be punished with 200 minutes in jail time.Player is allowed to go back at the scene only if he and his gang are capturing the turf as long as the turf battle (scripted battle) is in process. Soon after the turf battle finishes player is not allowed to go back in case he died and NLR will be again valid.Allied parties of the two main factions fighting over the turf will still be subject to the NLR.
      Injured person and hospitalized one is allowed to remember the incident that lead to the his injury while person that got killed and then respawned at the hospital is not allowed to use the memory that lead to his death.
    Example of a situation:

    There are 2 criminals who went on to rob someone, they got ambushed by several people, leading to the death of only one of them. The dead player will not remember anything leading up to his death so will not be able to avenge himself, the surviving player remembers the events but as his friend died he can only tell his point of view, not mentioning the death of his friend

    • Invalid example :
    • “oh hey, good to see you in the hospital, you got killed by 10 guys”
    • Valid example:
      “oh hey man, good to see you here, there was a shootout and I escaped”
    • All the Individuals that were involved in the situation and died must avoid interaction with surviving individuals at a scene of death for 30 minutes.It would not be logical to see the dead player coming back to his death scene in a short period of time.
    • A player cannot return to his place of death within the 30 minutes span, he cannot retrieve his vehicle, items or to revenge kill in this span.
    • Revenge Killing is not allowed by any means, you must get a NEW valid reason within the DM rules.

    Fear Roleplay (FearRP)

    Fear Roleplay: is the act of roleplaying fear for your character’s life or another individual's life in a situation where your character is in direct danger and doesn't have ANY WAY to protect himself Realistically. Examples (but not limited to), where your character’s life is considered to be in direct danger:

    • If a player decides to rob someone and pulls a gun on another player, the other player that is getting robbed must fear for his life and comply with the robber’s demands if:
    • The attacked player doesn't have a weapon in hand to protect himself AND the attacking player is in front/back of him pointing a gun.
    • When the attacker lowers their weapon to type or roleplay, your life remains in direct danger.
    • The attacked player has a gun in hand BUT the attacking party has multiple individuals pointing a gun at him.
    • The attacked player has a gun in his hands, BUT the attacking player is BEHIND HIM aiming the gun on him in CLOSE RANGE.
    • The attacked player is in ANY vehicle that is at a FULL STOP or at a SUPER SLOW SPEED and a gun is aimed at him at a VERY CLOSE distance. Realistically you don't have a chance to escape this situation as you will most likely get shot and be hit. It doesn't matter if the engine of a vehicle is running or not, the rule applies to both.

    • If there is a shootout and you are not participating in it your life is in direct danger and you must escape the scene, failing to do so is a failure to value your life.
    • You may not call any emergency services while your life is still in direct danger.
    • Driving a vehicle into an active shootout more than once, without a clear intent of stopping and getting out of it for clear use of it to provide cover will be considered as a failure to value your own life.
    This rule was implemented to avoid situations of cars driving around in circles and people shooting from them, it is unrealistic and it puts you in extreme danger driving around in circles in a shootout without.

    stopping may also result in a NON-RP offense. Examples (but not limited to), where your character’s life is NOT considered to be in direct danger:

    • When you have a firearm drawn and are facing the other player before he attacked.
    • When the attackers sight is blocked off by an object or when they have turned their back on.

    Power-Gaming - PG

    Power-Gaming: is the act of forceful roleplay that does not allow/give another individual player or group of players a chance to roleplay their own response in a situation, all players must be given a chance to roleplay outcomes of actions. This includes but is not limited to:

    • All statements in /DO must be true, as it is the base for roleplay
    For example:

    A person searches you from head to toe and you have a weapon or money or police search you or ask if they find fingerprints.

    • You must always answer the Truth in a /do command, you cannot lie in a /do command.
    • If you have performed an action that has a chance to influence potential RP scenarios in the future, you are REQUIRED TO HAVE OOC evidence of performing that exact action that you state you did.
    • Using a /me command without using a proper /do to give a chance for a response.
    • You may use forceful commands if the person is unresponsive for more than 30 seconds.
    • You may use forceful commands if the person is in an injured state due to EXTREME wounds that would make the injured person unresponsive and not in a place to control the actions that are made against him and he can't realistically change the outcome of the RP.
    • Performing unrealistic actions that are impossible in real life against other players.
    • You may have hidden recording devices but if searched, you must answer truthfully in /do.

    OOC consent is required before any gross roleplay takes place and screenshots/videos of the roleplay cannot be shared to the public unless all parties give consent for it to be shared. This roleplay cannot take place in public areas. Admins reserve the right to deem an area in which the GR is taking place to be too public. If a player is uncomfortable with the roleplay and they are a participant, they may request that it stops at any time. Any request to stop that is not adhered to will be seen as a violation of GR and Harassment Policies. If a player witnesses offensive roleplay and they do not wish to see it, they may remove themselves from the scene.


    No Crime Zones (NCZ)

    • No crime zone is an area where a player may not commit any actions considered as crimes. For example: Selling guns in NCZ will not be allowed , Selling or planting weed in NCZ will not be allowed , threats to a man’s life and discussing illegal things in the NCZ will not be allowed.
    • A Player cannot use the NCZ for protection if engaged in criminal activity beforehand
    • Players cannot go to a NCZ within 10 minutes after engaging in criminal activity unless you are turning yourself in to law enforcement.
    • If a player uses the NCZ for protection the attackers need to wait until the player will leave the NCZ if they want to attack.
    • No crime zones (NCZ) : All government offices, law enforcement offices, hospitals, Banks, Bus Depot, Legal jobs.
    • Players after being initiated on are not able to hide in a NCZ in a span of 30 minutes.

    Non Roleplay- NRP

    Non Roleplay: is the act of performing unrealistic actions or promoting poor quality of roleplay.

    Example sof (but not limited to) actions that will be considered as Non-RP.

    • Baiting Any Government Services- Provoking the services in order to get a reaction from them without a valid enough realistic reason, or just calling them to rob them, won't be tolerated.
    • Any kind of form of unrealistic stunt jumping is officially not allowed.
    • Stealing your own goods out of the Money Transporter job in the bank is not allowed.In order to steal it you need a friend getting the work as an inside job, and provide RP screenshots, the RP must be realistic and Valid.

    Combat Logging


    If a player by any disconnects during a roleplay situation,he must reconnect and try to get into contact with other parties at the scene to resume roleplay, if you are unable to reconnect you must provide solid proof and evidence as to why you disconnected, that would give you valid reason not to return. Petty reasons won't be tolerated.

    • If a player was involved in a chase/pursuit they have to wait 10 minutes before they can log out of the game, to prevent unfair play.
    • Any kind of ignoring answering roleplay commands directed at them, aka Stalling RP is not allowed.
    • In a situation where the player was kicked or crashed from the server,upon him reconnecting ALL PARTIES must give him the advantage he had before his crash/kick!

    Criminal Rules (CR)
    • When robbing a player, roleplay standards in regards to /me and /do are expected to be strictly adhered to.
    • You may not force a player to take money out of the ATM or bank. You may only take money from the player’s wallet and items on their person.
    • You are unable to rob "New Players" unless they are doing illegal activity or they are shooting at you with another gang.

    Players can give consent to other players to be kidnapped outside of the situations above if the roleplay makes sense, but they should in such cases avoid involving law enforcement in any way due to the consented roleplay. Players can kidnap other players for these reasons:

    • If you attempt to rob a property, you are allowed to hold the players within that property until you have finished the robbery.
    • They have performed crimes against you.
    • They have kidnapped you in the past.

    • a member of an illegal organization uses legal weapons to supply their group rather than making IC contacts for illegal weapons.
    • the sale of legal weapons (or weapons in general) has OOC involvement, rather than being a strictly IC process.

    Deathmatching (DM)

    Deathmatch: Is the act of hurting or killing another individual without a valid RP reason.

    Examples of (but not limited to) valid reasons to kill a player:

    • If a police officer is clearly attempting to arrest you.
    • If a player reports you to the police for committing a serious crime.
    • If a player is not in compliance with your plausible demands, Attempts to Escape,or calls for backup.
    • If a player is attempting to seriously hurt you, your close ally or your property.
    • A player aims a gun at you or your ally
    • A player shoots at you or your ally or your property
    • A player pulled out a gun after a heated argument.
    • A kidnapping situation of your close ally allows you to shoot anyone around your ally that is held captive, as they are his kidnappers.
    • If 1 criminal group engages on another group, everyone present in the area from both groups will be automatically inserted into the situation,permitting the area to work as an active shootout.
    • If there is an active shootout situation and you are willingly inserting yourself by being in the location, it is solely your IC problem if you die, and no DM rules will apply there, anyone being at an ACTIVE shootout location will be looked at as a target.
    • You have only one attempt to run over people on foot at a scene where DM permits you to kill that Group/Player.
    • A player cannot kill their victim if the victim is in compliance with the demands and did not attempt to do anything out of the mentioned in the examples of point one.
    • A player must allow their victim enough time to comply with demands.
    • Demands are to be given foot to foot, foot to vehicle but not the opposite.

    War Rules


    War rules- are rules that apply to both groups during declaration of war of one group on the other.

    • It is expected of both groups to obey the DM rules set by the server.
    • If a group performs a coordinated attack on a certain area against the other group, the attacking group must avoid that area for 1 hour if they wish to attack it again

    WAR rule - Killing On Sight (KOS)

    War KOS is a privilege where you need to let admins be aware that two factions agreed on WAR , the groups seeking to get this privilege will be available to kill on sight each others.After admin let other staff member know about their war.

    • You may shoot at an enemy group when you are 100% certain that you are shooting an enemy group member, if you are not 100% sure, engage with normal DM rules.
    • Same war rules will apply to this war, except you will be able to shoot each other on identification
    • Crossfire victims will be allowed and the players if they kill someone upon wrong identification will not face OOC punishments, but their faction’s reputation regarding getting an official status will go down.

    For example:

    A group just shoots up everyone wearing a suit or wearing black, and not really thinking if the person they shot is an enemy, just for the sake of shooting aka trigger happy behavior.



    Faction CK Clause


    Factions will be allowed to require members to agree to a CK Clause. This clause will state that upon a member of the faction being removed for certain IC things, they will have their assets wiped and character killed.


    CK Clauses need to be submitted to the Faction Team for review. CK Clauses must abide by being enacted via IC actions only. Any CK Clause that is carried out must have ample proof of it being validated to cover the faction and to prove it was following regulations.


    If you wish to enable a CK Clause within your faction please submit your CK Clause to your FMT handler.

    Vehicle Deathmatching

    Vehicle Deathmatching (VDM) -
    When you utilize a vehicle as aweapon to kill or injure another player.


    · A player is only allowed1 attempt to kill or injure their target. More than 1 attempt will be considered VDM. Whether you hit 1 individual or a group at the same time you still cannot hit anyone else with the vehicle in the same situation.


    For Example: You arrive on scene in a gang shootout (Yours vs rivals), you are given one ram attempt with your vehicle. You are unable to keep rolling over the player with that vehicle, if you are unsuccessful in that ram attempt you are not allowed to try it again.


    STAFF RULE

    Everyone must respect the decission of the staff members.Any arguing with staff member will not be tolerated and it will be punishable with ban for 3 months on all Dreamworld platforms.Any requirement in rulling that staff asks player for (POV,evidence),player must provide as soon as posibble.In case that player is unable or can't provide the evidence or POV staff can decide how the rulling will go over the situation.

    This rule applies to all players. Turfs will be considered as a danger zones and anyone who shows up there can get shot without any demands required.Even without need to cap it criminal organizations can KOS in these zones or organize shotout.

    These are the TURF zones:


    BLACK ZONE that mafia organizations fight for



    [​IMG]





    RED ZONES that gang organizations fight for:



    [​IMG]



    Law Enforcement KOS - PD will be allowed to participate in turf wars which means they can KOS or arrest members of the gangs that participate in the shotout.
