  • All members should be polite, behaving maturely and with respect towards one another at all times while in SonoranRP Discord, TeamSpeak, server, or any other affiliated networks. Do not insult, bully, harass, troll, or provoke other members in the SonoranRP Discord, TeamSpeak, or other affiliated networks. You can insult and bully in character, but leave it in character.
    • Situations that happen in character that you do not agree with are best left in character. If you have grievances, keep it IC. Some people roleplay assholes and bullies, but are nice OOC. It’s all just roleplaying 🙂
    • There is zero tolerance for racism, anti-semitism, or any form of harassment. In roleplay, your character may express grievances with others, but stay away from racial slurs, comments on religion, sexual orientation, politics, or comments regarding the individual outside of the game.🙂
  • Do not spam, advertise, promote funding sites, share referral links, search for vulnerabilities, exploit bugs, or otherwise disrupt functionality of any services related to Sonoran Roleplay. 
  • The minimum age to play on our server is 16.


  • FailRP consists of doing things in character that you normally wouldn’t do otherwise, whether it would be failing to roleplay out a situation correctly or doing things that a person wouldn’t do otherwise. 

  • Examples include

    • Driving excessively reckless in vehicles (fast speeds in the city), or taking vehicles where they shouldn’t necessarily be driven in (motorcycles down subway entrances)

    • Entering the military base or accessing the military carrier on the map. These are strictly off limits for administration purposes or police training. 

    • Having an absurd amount of items in your inventory

      • Holding 50 magazines, when the limit is 20

      • An unrealistic amount of food and drinks

      • An unrealistic amount of different weapons, both melee and firearms

Fair Play

  • Cheating in any way will result in an instant and permanent ban. This includes but is not limited to a crosshair (Third party or otherwise) or other third party programs/menus.
  • Exploiting or abuse of game mechanics is gaining an unfair advantage by using game bugs or mechanics in a way that is not intended for them to work. 
    • Bugs are to be reported in the forums here. Exploits found in game are to be reported immediately or brought to our attention in the discord under a ticket. 
  • Transferring anything from one character to another is NOT allowed. This includes cars, money, items, weapons, or knowledge. It doesn’t matter the method of transfer. If you give belongings to someone just to receive it on a different character is against the rules.

    • Anyone caught transferring belongings between characters will be immediately banned from the community. No exceptions.

  • Will Transfers: The only thing players are permitted to transfer to other players via a legal will are houses and businesses that have a deed. Everything else is not allowed. This does not include giving gifts from one living player to another living player. 

  • There is no need to be angry and hold a grudge against someone. Keep in mind that this is a game and we are all here to have fun. Take regular breaks from the game if you have trouble separating in character events from out of character real world.


  • We expect the highest level of roleplay and at no time should you be breaking character on the server unless speaking with an admin and they tell you you’re clear of RP to talk OOC. Do NOT use /me or /s to talk out of character, the out of character chat is /ooc. If you need to speak to an admin, you can do /report (message). If you do not get a response in game, make a ticket in Discord.

  • Metagaming is transferring information between Out of Character (OOC) and In Character (IC) despite there being no way of the character gaining that information. This includes, but IS NOT limited to:

    • Your character knowing someone's name because you read it in-game through text emotes (/me) or sign language (/s).

    • Using a players live stream (stream sniping) to gain information about that character or their location. To make it simple, you MAY NOT be in the server and watch a SonoranRP streamer at the same time. NO EXCEPTIONS. This includes private and public Discord streams. To put it simple, you may watch, or you may play, not both.

    • Using information gained through Discord that is not marked IC

    • Sharing or gaining information through OOC communications such as Discord or Teamspeak. 

      • Exceptions for this include ATC (Air Traffic Control) and Dispatch for LEO/EMS. Any other radio traffic must be used in the in-game radio

  • At no time are you permitted to powergame another character. Powergaming is the act of forcing an action, condition, or belief through roleplay on a character without their consent. Certain extremes, such as rape and sexual assault are NOT ALLOWED to be roleplayed at all. Examples include but are not limited to:
    • Cutting off body parts without gaining prior consent, whether through Discord or /ooc. We do allow torture RP, but the injuries inflicted should not be major.
    • Shooting, stabbing, and/or kicking someone excessively while the other person is downed to try and inflict more damage to their character.
    • Telling people that “In my eyes.” Let the other parties involved roleplay their own injuries. Don’t state that you “shot him in the head” or “you stabbed him in an artery”

Sexual/Erotic Roleplay (ERP)

  • At no times should there be any sexual or erotic role play being played out via voice, /me’s, or /s’s in game.
    • The exception is public displays of affection, such as kissing, hugging, or other activities couples would participate in in a public setting. No acts of sex or other means.
    • At the strip clubs, you may lax the rules, but still no sexual acts are to be commited.


  • Killing someone without a roleplay reason to do so is NOT allowed.. This includes RDM (Random Death Match) and RVDM/VDM (Random Vehicle Death Match). You MUST initiate properly.
    • RDM includes but is not limited to punching or shooting someone with no reason where VDM may include running over someone or attempting to without proper reasoning. 

Initiation and Retaliation

  • Initiation means stating your intentions or showing that you are going to do something to start hostilities towards another individual/group.
  • You may not return to the scene of a crime or hostility acted upon by your group or yourself. If your group leaves the area, then leave the area alone for a short time or until certain hostilities in the area have cleared up. If you shoot cops, try your best to leave the area in a timely manner, do NOT hang around to only shoot at remaining officers.
  • You may not use your phone to text or call ANYONE while you are down.
    • The only exception to this rule is if you are out of the situation leading to you being downed and place an anonymous (From the viewpoint of a local) call to EMS or Police if there is a local in the area that would see you.
  • Do not cop bait. Cop baiting is purposefully doing something in front of police to get them to pull you over.

    • Vigilantism is allowed in the server. However, do keep in mind, if you do decide to be a vigilante, you are not immune to consequences or retaliation in game

  • All initiations and hostile actions as well as their demands must be made clear and explicit to all involved persons. The only exception to this rule is if you have retaliation rights on the individual or group, if you are certain that is the person/group.

    • A police officer conducting a traffic stop with their lights on is NOT initiation. However, if the officer is pointing a weapon, that is clear demands for initiation and retaliation can occur.

    • An individual walking up and pointing their gun at you after telling you to put your hands up is clear initiation.

  • Retaliation rights are granted when you or a group member is initiated on or hostile actions taken against you or your group. Retaliation rights are granted to and against all members of the group regardless of if you are involved in the situation or not. Retaliation rights last for four (4) hours. If past the window to retaliate, you MUST initiate if you still wish to retaliate. An example:

    • Alex is in Group A with four other individuals. Alex, by himself, initiates and robs Mary. Mary, if she remembers, then gains retaliation rights on Alex and the rest of his group because she can clearly identify and recognize them as all being in the same group.

  • Do not start robberies during the five (5) minute restart announcement or up to fifteen (15) minutes after the server has been rebooted.
  • When conducting or completing a robbery, attempt to leave the scene as soon as possible. Do NOT stay on scene or circle/return to gun down responding officers.
  • Adhere to the following group limits when conducting robberies:
    • If the hostage is a friend, or a “fake hostage” that WILL count towards your numbers for the robbery.
    • Vinewood Bank (Pacific Standard Bank)
      • Six (6) criminals with eight (8) cops responding
    • Vangelicos/Every other bank
      • Four (4) criminals with six (6) cops responding
    • Convenience Stores/Gas Stations/Liquor Stores
      • Two (2) criminals with four (4) cops responding
  • House Robberies
    • A maximum of three (3) criminals can rob a house in the same group.

      • If you have two groups, one must be in the south area while the other must be in the north area.

  • Do NOT have people from the same groups hit multiple stores/banks at the same time.
  • Keep in mind that when a signal 13 (an officer goes down) during any scenario, all units active are able to respond to the scenario. Play it smart!


  • It is expected that you roleplay your medical injuries correctly at all times and as realistically as possible. If you don’t know, just ask in /OOC. Also, here is a little guide (Courtesy of Aquila and Danstaa) to help you out here
    • This means that if you are shot, do NOT roleplay you have a broken arm when Police/EMS arrive on scene. If you get in a very bad car accident going fast, don’t just state you have a small bump on your head.
  • When your character dies and respawns (wakes up at the hospital after hitting R), you lose all memories from the situation that lead up to your “death.” You MAY NOT return to the general location until the situation is over or involve yourself in the situation again. Server restarts, crashes, or other OOC events do not affect these situations. This is known as a New Life Rule, or NLR rule.

  • Do NOT steal any player owned medical vehicles unless you gain consent. This includes but is not limited to:

    • Amublances

    • Fire Trucks

    • EMS/Fire Command Vehicles

  • Stealing other emergency vehicles is also not allowed. These include:

    • Ambulances spawned near hospitals

    • Police vehicles that spawn at the PD stations

    • Coast Guard or Life Guard vehicles that spawn oon the beach

    • Military vehicles around/in Zancudo.

No Value for Life (NVL)

  • Do not act in a way that indicates no value for your character's life. For example, attempting to kill people when heavily outnumbered, excessively talking back, or insulting someone when taken hostage. Another example is running into an active hostile situation when you’re not involved.
    • This also includes people you are with. Examples is just randomly shooting people over little situations or just shooting excessively. Taking a life is a big decision, and one that can lead to someone’s death. If they cooperate, try and keep them alive, but if they resist and fight back, then you can hit them/shoot them.

Combat Logging

  • Do NOT combat log. Combat logging is leaving or disconnecting from the server during or before your hostile situation is over. Hostile situations include:
    • Being in police custody
    • Being down and logging out when players are around you
      • If you are down, respawn or ensure you go to the hospital. Do NOT log out while you still have an active treatment/revive timer. No exceptions.
      • If you do need to relog, let someone know, whether it’s through Discord, a /report in game, or saying it in /ooc

    • Gaining information regarding BM locations and/or groups and providing that information to the police

      • Locations can include the chop shops, BM weapons and item shops, or drug locations

    • Signing or agreeing to a PDM (Perma-Death Agreement) when joining a group or organization that has a contract like that and failing to uphold the agreements set forth in the contract.

Greenzone Layout

Red Outline = No crime inside the red outline (Greenzone)

  • Do NOT initiate hostile actions at any police stations, hospitals, or the DMV. These are green zones and would have security to end any hostility brought forth. This includes trying to escape police custody after being brought for medical.

  • The only exceptions to this rule are the following:
    • If you are already in a green zone and an officer walks in and attempts to arrest or serve a warrant on your character.

    • If you are already engaged with a player or group and run into a green zone.

    • If EMS transports you and police do not involve themselves or state you are to be detained, then you are free to go after you roleplay the medical equivalent of the injuries you sustained
