In-game Rules

Flaming, Disrespect, Harassment and Inappropriate Content

Within Helwyr3, we have a culturally diverse community. Communities contain different races, beliefs, ethics, sexual orientations, etc. It is vital that we preserve and protect each culture and that we ensure equality throughout Helwyr as a whole. The denigration or defamation of a member will not be tolerated. First offenders will receive a 24 hour mute, followed by a 48 hour mute, increasing to a 7 day mute, a 14 day mute, and finally, a permanent mute.

 

• a. The use of inappropriate, slanderous and/or disrespectful language towards another’s race, belief system, mental health, ethics, or sexual orientation is not tolerated whatsoever. Although we have an effective ignore system, we expect our members to be courteous towards one another.

 

• b. Content that is publicized via world yell, public chat, or clan chat that is deemed inappropriate, demeaning, or disrespectful per staff member’s discretion is not permitted and will correspond with the punishments stated above.

This rule also covers  hacks, scams, etc. We will not be held responsible for a scam or hacking. Failure to comply will result in the seller being permanently banned, followed by an IP-Ban the second time around. As for the buyer, a 72-hour ban with a complete bank wipe will be arranged, granted it was the first offense. The second offense will result in a 7-day ban with a complete bank wipe, and, lastly, a permanent ban.

 

• a. Purchasing or selling any Helwyr3 account, or donor status is not permitted on the server or forums. First offenders will receive a permanent ban with no chance of appeal; the second offense will result in an IP-Ban.

 

 Account Sharing

An account should be actively used by the owner only. This goes for all types of accounts whether it is a level 3 scout for the wilderness, a shared account people used to Teleblock other players, or an account you would share with a friend. Account sharing in an effort to progress another users account or achievements will be punished with a 48-hour ban, followed by a Permanent ban for both parties. For example, If you need items off your friends account you may login and take them. But you aren't allowed to go train fishing for him.

Third Party Software

Applying the use of third-party software that allows a member to have an (any) unfair advantage whatsoever will result in a 24-hour, followed by a 48-hour ban, with an ending result of a permanent ban. We strive to maintain an honorable environment where fairness flourishes and hard-earned achievements are commended. This includes auto-clickers, auto-typers, AHK.

 

• a. The use of botting clients/scripts are forbidden and will result in an IP-Ban as well as permanent bans on all owned accounts. This will be unappealable.

 

Multi-Logging

Multi-logging is not against the rules of Helwyr3, as we do allow players to be logged into multiple accounts at once. However, we do not allow multi-logging to gain an excessive advantage over other users. We are striving to maintain an environment in which no player has an exponential advantage over other players. First offenders will receive a 24 Hour ban, Second offenders will receive 48 Hour ban and a bank wipe if deemed necessary, followed up with a permanent ban, and finally, an IP-Ban.

• a. While we do allow you to play on two accounts or more simultaneously, these accounts are not allowed to interact with each other. This includes but is not limited to;

  • Trading

  • Duelling

  • PKing 

  • Bossing

We respect and understand that you may want to have two accounts running. If this rule is abused too often, Helwyr3 staff reserve the right to remove the ability to be able to multi-log.

 

Encouraging Others to Break Rules

Members that are somehow encouraging others to break a rule whether or not the enticed member understands that specific rule will receive a 24-48 hour mute or 24-hour ban, depending on the extremity or severity of the rule.

 


 

Gambling/Scams/Refunds (Disconnects, Donations etc.)

 

• a. Scammers will be punished severely with a permanent ban on their first offense, followed up by an IP-Ban on their second offense. Scammed members will not be refunded because we provide effective methods to avoid being scammed, such as using a middleman (server support, moderator, administrator etc.). Please note that we do not accept photo-reports of members being scammed. One must provide video evidence, or it will not be handled.

 

• b. Disconnections will not be refunded.

 

• c. Donations will only be refunded if the player has not been given their items or position (forums, server) after 72 hours; otherwise, a refund is not required. Items that have been claimed through our donation system will not be refunded.

 

• d. Reset of the server and/or forums will be refunded if the player has posted valid proof of their purchase in 'Donations' board; otherwise, a refund is not required.

 

- Gamble scams will be refunded if the user has proper proof as stated above.

 

- Changing agreed-upon rules or switching weapons (Staff of the dead + spec in a dds fight) in a duel is considered scamming regardless of who wins the duel.

 

• e. Glitch refunds will only be refunded if the member has enough proof and has proof of containing the items prior to the occurrence of the glitch. Note that if Zeus/Lewis does not see the proof as satisfactory, it can be declined and a refund will not be issued.


 

Bug Abuse

Abuse of a bug or glitch that allows a member to somehow have an advantage over another member or the server itself is not tolerated. We strive to better Helwyr3 each and every day. In doing so, we ask all members to report any bugs or glitches as soon as they are found; if tampered with after, a permanent ban will be issued.

 

• a. Boss manipulation (safespotting) is the flagrant act of maneuvering a boss into a position where it cannot properly perform its functions and/or mechanics. The usage of safe spot methods not available on Runescape will not be tolerated on Helwyr3. Wrongdoers will serve one hour in jail, followed by 5 hours in jail, with the ending result being a permanent ban.

 


 

 Player versus Player (PvP)

 Helwyr3 is not held responsible for members who have lost, disconnected etc., while in the wilderness. The wilderness, or if you will, for the most part, has no restrictions; hence why it can be referred to as 'No man's land'. However, we do have a few rules:


 

• a. PvP-Farming will be an automatic permanent ban with no chance of appeal on all accounts involved, followed up by an IP-Ban. See the rule of Multi-logging for more information.

 

• b. Luring is allowed for the most part. The few exceptions to this rule are members cannot attempt to lure via world yell or servers clan chats such as Help. Attempting to lure staff by asking for help whilst in the wilderness or anything else that involves blatant deception will result in a ban. The first offense will result in a 24-hour ban followed up by a 72-hour ban with the ending result being a 7-day ban + bank wipe.

 

• c. Attacking another player while you only have 1 item or essentially no valuable risk with the intent to negatively effect another player's experience in the wilderness is against the rules and will not be tolerated. (ex. Using a ZGS and constantly returning to a specific area or person and harassing the player.) This rule is applied to the entirety of PvP across  Helwyr3

 

However, certain areas of PvP will follow specific rules. While in Edgeville, the act of griefing fights will not be allowed. (ex. Walking over players constantly or placing items such as cannons down.)

 

Pjing/Rushing is allowed; But if reported with sufficient evidence of being an on-going issue and considered harassment, it will be dealt with by staff discretion.

 

First offenders will receive a 5-hour jail followed by a 24-hour ban, increasing to a 7-day ban, and finally, a permanent ban.

 

• d. X-Logging from the server will result in a 24-hour ban, then a 48-hour ban, and finally, a permanent ban, as doing this causes an unfair advantage for other members of the community.



 

             Invading Other Communities

 

Invading other communities will result in a permanent removal from the entirety of Helwyr3  with no chance of appeal. Here on  Helwyr3, we are firm advocates of displaying perpetual, irrefutable integrity. We have the utmost respect for each and every RSPS community and only wish them well.

 

 


 

VPN Voting

Any use of excessively changing your IP-address to vote will not be tolerated whatsoever on Helwyr3

We strive to maintain an honorable environment. Anything that brings an unfair advantage will not be tolerated (see rule 8).

VPN voting goes against many of the Top-lists terms of service, which can result in the termination of  Helwyr3 from the Top-lists.

Those who fail to comply with this rule will first receive a 24-hour ban with a vote book wipe (*), followed by a 48-hour ban with a vote book wipe (*) issued to all accounts involved, followed by a permanent ban and finally, an IP-ban.

• a. Manipulating the voting system to obtain excessive amounts of vote books will result in the punishments above.

• Vote book wipe (*): A vote book wipe consists of any vote books on your account, as well as the approximate wealth gained from the sale of vote books obtained by VPN voting, being wiped.

 

 

 Impersonation

• a. Impersonating a Helwyr3 staff member is strictly prohibited.

• b. Impersonating anyone for entertainment or fraud is strictly prohibited.

• c. Impersonating any of the server accounts is strictly prohibited. ( Zeus/Lewis)


 

Staff Applications

 

We here at Helwyr3 will occasionally open up staff positions to our players. Players apply via the forums and the community of Helwyr3 are allowed to cast their vote via a poll.

 

• a. All staff applications are formatted and made on the forums. These will be up when Lewis believes we are in need of staff. Any begging/harassing the owner about giving you staff will lead to your application being closed.

 

• b. Asking players to go and vote for you is prohibited, and will hold the same punishment as before. The application will be closed. If you reapply and then reoffend, you will be exempt from applying and a staff position.



 

The staff of Helwyr3 reserve the rights to change these rules, edit them, or remove them completely.
