South Carolina State RP
General Rules (In-game)
This will cover the scope of offenses and suitable punishments for each offense. The alternative punishment can be applicable if the situation suits it. “[Based on context]” This essentially means the punishment will be based on the context of you committing the breakage of this rule. “[No Context]” means it doesn’t matter why the rule was broken, you’re getting a harsh punishment(for the rule). This does not mean your appeal will be taken less seriously.

The same also applies if you add health or armor while in a gun fight, take the damage and if you die you die, it’s not a big deal and it makes the scene that much better instead of dealing with some super-human.
