Teleport trapping is not allowed.

You can not teleport another player(s) to you, or your warp and trap them in lava, nether portals, etc

If you got stuck in a trap you should contact a staff member as soon as possible and get them to deal with it.

Rule 8: Combat.

You are allowed to PVP with another player if they have their PVP on (/pvp <toggle/on/off>).

If you kill them and they want their stuff back you must give it all back to them.

We don't want our players getting in trouble with parents, cares, school, work, etc

Rule 9: Claiming.

If someone is building/has built something and can't afford to claim it, you aren't allowed to claim it/destroy it.

Don't bitch claim, meaning don't claim right next to someone's build (without their permission) to prevent them from expanding.


Why do we have this rule?

We don't want our players to have to move locations because someone claimed right next to their house preventing them from expanding their base.


What to do if this happens to you:

Inform a moderator or above and they will deal with the situation.

Rule 10: Staff.

Staff will always have the final call. Listen to them.

If you disagree with a staff member please contact the owner ( Renn#3505 on discord )


Why do we have this rule?

We want our players to take our staff seriously, if a staff says something then don't argue with them.

Rule 11: Builds.

Any builds intended to cause lag, or builds that cause server lag (such as huge farms) may be removed by staff. We recommend no more than 25 spawners in a farm.


Why do we have this rule?

We don't want our server lagging and 25 spawners is more than enough for a farm.

Rule 12: Lava Casting.

Lava Casting is not allowed, any lava casts will be removed and you will be warned for making one.


Why do we have this rule?

Lava casts make the server terrain look messy.

Rule 13: Referrals.

Don't ask for /ref's unless you referred someone.


Why do we have this rule?

When a new player joins you should welcome them instead of begging for refs.
