These are all the basic rules that apply to raiding! Legal raiding tools Items on this list can be placed in others property to aid your raid. Items placed during raiding must be left behind to help the owner of the land improve their structure to avoid future raids. Ladders Buttons & Levers Redstone Torches Sleeping in a bed that is within reach in a property from the outside. However, you may not PLACE beds to aid in raiding. Legally Placeable Items These are items that you may place on unclaimed land that are not on the legal raiding tools list because they do not aid in raiding. You may not place any items that are not on this list, and you may not abuse the placement of these items in any way. Signs (You may wish to be kind enough to tell the raided how you got in or leave a funny and ACCEPTABLE post-raid message. Acceptable content will be judged at the discretion of staff.) Regular Torches Any item that you place in a chest (You may wish to "reverse raid" or leave items in chests when you take items during a raid. Note that you may not use books maliciously to harass players or leave considerably vulgar content in their possession at any point in time) Illegal raiding tools/actions The list below is a list of things that you may not use to raid, which includes but is not limited to: You may not use CHAIRS in ANY way to gain access to raiding or to a place you could not otherwise get to for pvp. You may not use Town Spawns to raid AT ALL EVER (this includes pvp!) Planting trees Breaking leaf blocks in order to ladder up trees Pouring lava or water in order to aid in raiding Using boats or mine carts to gain access Using the edge of the world bounce-back to raid Using pistons to push blocks and make entry points Accepting a summon from a player who has entered an area illegally in order to assist in a raid (always check that a summoner has gotten access to land legally before accpeting the summons) Using the Navigation Pack (Compass or Feather Flight) to raid or in any way assist with raiding (Perk rules) Using Enderpearls to access an area Using Nether Portals to access an area. Any OP tools that are not approved for raiding. (These currently include any Knock tool above knockback 3 (3 is okay, but 4+ is not) or any Punch tool above 3 (3 is okay, but 4+ is illegal). Know that if there is any question, the supposed means of entrance will be tested with a viable tool, and if testers cannot gain legitimate access, it will be determined that you've used an illegitimate form of the tool in question. Glitching in any fashion is always illegal. Use of /top or similar commands (useful for getting unstuck from a block or fast travel, but NOT permitted for raiding or pvp) Teleport Requests/Summons Use of the teleport system is a privalege, not a right. Abuse of it will result in a loss of your permissions, whether or not you've donated to get them. Please respect our rules, as they exist for a reason. One may not use the tpa system to gain initial access for a raid. Raiders must get in the old-fashioned way with legal raiding tools, knockback, or vanilla flaws in a structure's design. Once someone has obtained access to a place for a legal raid, he or she may summon others to take part in the raid if so desired. It is illegal for one to summon another player for the purpose of killing that player, setting that player up for a trap, or for in any way causing intentional harm to that player -- The act of teleporting/summoning is an implied contract of neutrality. Neither the teleporter or teleportee may kill or purposefully harm the other. If you are a member of a town, you may NOT summon someone into your town to allow them to raid it. You may break blocks to allow for manual entrance, but you may not SUMMON them into the town to raid. Likewise, you are not allowed to accept a request for them to teleport to you in order to raid. Claimed land. Claimed land is land that is protected by Town or Personal claims. Using a glitch to break or manipulate blocks in claimed land is illegal. Towering, bridging, or tunneling to access claimed land from an unclaimed land is illegal. These are defined as placing any number of blocks which will act in your favor during a raid that are not a part of the legal raiding tools or acceptable items list. Excessive placement of legal raid tools or acceptable items is illegal. "Excessive" defined at the Moderators' discretion. Malicious use of Legal Non-Raiding items is also illegal (Includes excessive placement of normal torches or vulgar, excessively taunting or otherwise illegal content on signs or in books, etc.) *If you have been legitimately added to the claimed land, you may treat it as if it were your own claimed land. You are therefore permitted to do what you want there with the exception of Excessive greifing and glitching. The owner has forfeited his or her rights to claim illegal activity on your part if he or she has added you to his or her claimed land. Unclaimed Chunks Unclaimed chunks are those that are not protected using either Town or Personal claims. You may break a hole in an existing structure to gain access to that structure with the aim of causing only minimal damage to it. The recommended is a 2x1 hole. (You may break extra blocks if completely necessary -- for example, if the walls are 2-3 blocks thick, you may break only a few extra blocks just to get in, as long as you only break the blocks NECESSARY to get in. No legal grief should exceed 10 blocks). <-- This means no breaking leaf blocks to use trees as towers. You must break building/wall-like structures. Bridging, towering, and tunneling are all ILLEGAL. You may not place any blocks on unclaimed land to aid a raid which are not listed in the legal raiding tools. You may not claim somebody's structure without their consent. You may not break blocks of value in unclaimed land. You may not greif unclaimed land. (No removing noob shacks -- I don't care if they are ugly! Have some respect! We'll discuss rules for removal of dirt/cobble structures without logs later.) You may ONLY break blocks above a chest to access it if some part of the chest is VISIBLE. If the chest is surrounded by blocks, you may not break a block to open the chest. Whilst Raiding Things to keep in mind when raiding: You may not set or use your home point to aid with raiding (this means do not set your home point in someone else's territory in order to return to it fast. The same can be said for waypoints, if you have access to them). Using /disposal whilst in another town is illegal. If you log out or disconnect whilst in another town, you must leave immediately upon logging back in. You may not use /back to return after the raid is over (5 minutes after activity) to return to raid or have access to otherwise inaccessible land later. Any and all glitches are illegal to use. You may not "Glitch in" under any circumstance. Take Screenshots of your entry point, so you may prove it easier later! You may be required to give your loot back in some situations. Sometimes plugins goof up and things that should be claimed aren't. Staff will verify the logs, and if something you raided was only vulnerable due to a plugin glitch, you'll need to give the stuff back, or a member of staff will remove the items from your possession. I know this is a pain, but it's only fair. *Raidingis defined as entering an area in with the intention to either PvP, steal or scout. *Compassing is defined as using compass to gain access to something. You may not use compass to access something you could not otherwise gain legal access to. *Towering is defined as placing blocks vertically to gain leverage to access an area or structure that you could not otherwise get to. *Bridging is defined as placing blocks horizontally to climb across to access an area or structure that you could not otherwise get to. *Tunneling is defined as breaking blocks vertically (up or down) that are not part of a structure to gain access to an area or structure that you could not otherwise get to. *A grief-able structure is defined as a wall, wall-like construction, or building that encloses loot-able land. Structures may be made of any materials, such as wooden planks, gold blocks, etc. Although tree leaves may not be broken to use ladders to hop across trees to get over a wall, if the wall itself is made up solely or mostly of trees, the trees are at that point a wall, which is a structure (can legally be broken into/laddered up). Please ask for a staff opinion if you are in any way unclear on the status of an alleged structure! *"Glitching In" is defined as using any chunk loading glitch, server or client lag glitch, or any other glitch to access something you otherwise could not.
