Heist Rules


What Are Heists?

A heist is an organized roleplay ‘raid’ where the attackers are allowed to lockpick various chests and/or armour stands to steal from their targets This is purely roleplay and any Out of Character usage isnot permitted, including during the planning.

Committing a Heist

On the day of the Heist, at the approved time agreed upon by the leader of the Heist and the Moderators handling it, the leader must make a /modreq. Either the Moderator handling the discussions with the leader or another informed and up to date moderator regarding the heist in question may take the modreq. The Moderator(s) will be in spectetor/vanish as the heist to occurs.

To start a heist you can fill out this application, these should take place in peak hours of the servers. You may purchase both lockpicks and bolt cutters from the thief shops scattered around the map.

  10. If the heisting group is caught and attacked by anyone in the city, the member of the city will be given Defender (Guard) Default. Only those around at the time will be allowed to initiate the combat. They may use a Rally Bell or via shouting to alert others of the city of the heist.
