  2. TP Trapping and TP Killing is allowed. Be careful who you TP to, and with what you take.

  5. Attempting to kill a member of Staff while they are in a staff situation is not allowed. A situation can be defined by a staff member teleporting to you without request.

  6. If a staff member requests to teleport to you, then there is no situation, and you may attempt to kill them.

  7. Pushing people out of claims, or luring mobs to kill players within claims are allowed. So are the use of Fishing Rods, or similar items, to move players inside claims.

  8. Killing pets is not allowed in claimed areas. Players with pets are notified if and when their pets are killed, and by who.

  9. Teaming in MiniGames is not allowed. You must enter knowing that they are Free-For-All games, unless otherwise stated.


Trading Rules

  1. Trades occur between two parties. There is nothing stopping a third, unco-ordinated party from stealing or sabotaging trades. This does include within the Spawn Trade Pods.

  2. A trade is defined by the exchange of an item (or multiple) with another (or multiple), between two players.

  3. Trades are not allowed to be scammed. If you are offering an item, or accepting the offer of an item, you can not then TP Trap or Kill the person you are communicating with

  4. Players may be able to steal items placed in public chests or dropped on the floor during a trade. Use the Trading Pods at spawn to ensure a safer trade, as stealing items from the floor or public chests is legal. Further, if a Player manages to sneak into a Trading Pod during a trade and steal items, this is legal. Take extra care when trading. One of the most safest methods of trading is to trade on an enclosed claim, that other players have no teleport to. If a trade is said to be occurring, and hence why a teleport is happening, the players involved in the trade (as well as any other co-ordinated players) can not be killed.
