Preface: The Rules of Engagement are considered an In-Character behavior contract, not a server rule. Failure to abide by them carries in game consequences that may be enforced by other players, and will be enforced by NPC groups controlled by the staff. As new features are brought to the server, any of them may be restricted to exclude unregistered (-) factions.

To be protected by the Rules of Engagement an organization MUST:

  • Be marked with the (+) designation in their in-game Public Description (including it in your faction name or tag does not fulfill this requirement).
  • Be registered properly with a Discord role for their faction. Open a ticket with our #support channel to do this.
  • Your designation in discord and ingame MUST match

We will not entertain reports of RoE violations against you if you have not read the rules and made the small effort required to get your faction set up. Organizations without designation may be assumed to be unregistered (-).

  1. Hostile actions are any intentional destruction of person or property, or theft of such. Interdiction of jump capability in itself is not considered a hostile act.
  2. A formal declaration of war is required prior to the launching of any offensive hostile actions between (+) registered factions. A declaration of war consists of a notification via Discord in the Sigma Draconis News Network #sdnn channel with an `@mention` to the faction. Violators of this rule may find themselves losing their registration (+) and additionally being branded as pirates.
  3. War declarations MUST be made at least 12 Hours prior to opening any offensive hostile actions. Violations of this rule will be considered an act of criminality.
  4. Once a war is declared, and the initial 12 hours have passed, anyone may join in defensive hostile actions against any involved party, with or without notice, but item 6 of the server rules above must be followed. Offensive allied actions require allies to declare war as well. The 12 hour waiting period applies to those declarations.
  5. Good Samaritans running to defend another player will be given much leniency. This idea protects new players who may not be aware of the rules. However, offensive actions that violate the above will be treated as criminality and prosecuted as such.
