Passion RP Community & Rules
Hello, welcome to Passion RP. This is all the information in regards to rules, regulations and guidelines for our server so please make sure to read carefully.
To begin, FiveM is a social game where any interactions you make can impact the world and players around you.
As a new role-play server we require each player to stay true to their character. However, we understand there are situations where this is avoidable e.g. admin sits, etc.
Here are a few tips and tricks to help your role-play experience:
- Roleplay is essentially IMPROV. This means to think quickly on your feet and adapt to any situation you are put in.
- Be open to other players roleplay.
- There are no mistakes. Whatever you do or say should be in character at all times, this helps to direct the stories forward.
- Roleplay is not about winning or losing. You may root for your character to win in a situation but it won’t always turn out that way. In order for roleplay to work, you need to be willing to give and take Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Focus on making sure that not only you’re enjoying yourself but all the other parties involved are too. Just remember that people you are interacting with are REAL people too.
- Never interrupt if something is going on and you see all parties are engaged in the RP. Do not force yourself into the scene if your character would not normally do so themselves. (remember to stick to your characters traits).
- Advertisements (Ads) are not anonymous tweets. OOC and Local OOC is not to be used unless specifically for technically support for new players finding their way or to reach a compromise in a roleplay situation. Using any of these functions incorrectly will lead to removal from Passion RP. We will not accept any toxic behaviour used in the chat.
You are expected to follow all these rules. If you are caught breaking any of these rules you will be subject to punishment.
- Using any racist, homophobic, derogatory or overly sexual remarks in or out of character will be punished.
- Sending someone angry or offensive out of character messages because of an in-character subject or event.
- Stroll up to another player and start insulting them in character with the sole intention of escalating a situation to fight.
- Shoot or punch a random player to death with no justified reason.
- Use a vehicle to plow through a group of people with no justified reason.
- Track down the player(s) responsible for your characters death (you have lost your memory of the situation).
- Utilize your gang affiliation or motives as a means to enact revenge on the individual(s) that killed your character.
- Have one of your friends or associates track down your killer(s) and take revenge on them.
- Commit crimes with more than the maximum number of people for a store or bank robbery. Maximum for a store robbery = 3 people. Maximum for a bank robbery = 5. (unless a predetermined event was discussed with an administrator).
- Roleplay having a weapon or item on you that you do not actually have (script wise).
- Use any third party software or hardware (this will result in an immediate ban).
- Roleplaying that a tweet did not come from you. If it is from your account, then it is from you. (remember that IP’s are easily traced). There is no such things as DM’s on Twitter unless we implement that in.
- Roleplay that you hid an item or weapon somewhere when it is on your character (if it is on you, then it is on you).
- Roleplay that you’ve hid an item or weapon somewhere that it wouldn’t fit. For example, a shot gun in a plant pot.
- Search a vehicle inventory and roleplaying seeing a weapon or item without roleplaying the search and location of the weapon or item.
- Combat store your vehicle if you’re in the middle of a police chase.
- Retreat to a Green Zone in order to gain an advantage (e.g. Garages, Hospital, etc). In doing so, players are permitted to continue the roleplay. If reported, you will receive an infraction or possibly a ban.
- Use 3rd POV to gain an advantage. If you cannot see them in 1st POV then you have not seen them. (this also includes ID’s, if you see someone ID in a bush, you have not seen them).
- Use out of character communication (in any form) to summon a friend to assist you to elude the police or an attacker.
- Give special attention to an organization leader in attempt to join their organization unless you know of their status (in character).
- Chase someone in a vehicle to take them hostage solely based on the fact that you know they are a human player.
- Use any out of character communication (Teamspeak, Discord, Skype etc) whilst in a RP scenario. However, you are permitted to use these applications as long as it does not gain you a personal advantage.
- Use script knowledge as a cop to pre-empt any drug locations or jewellery heists.
- Use any information from someones stream that is playing in the same server as you.
- Perform offensive roleplay without first obtaining the consent of all parties involved (use Local OOC or ask over Discord, Teamspeak, Skype etc beforehand).
- Continue offensive roleplay if the other party has not given consent.
- Perform any sexual roleplay or roleplay containing sexual innuendos in a public place.
- Mention or bring into roleplay any sort of major infectious diseases such as HIV or AIDS.

- Call the Police or EMS and bait them into a scenario where you or any other characters are able to then rob, kidnap or kill them.
- Value of Life
The value of your own life and other individuals applies. This rule allows realistic environments for all citizens and consequences for those who don’t wish to participate in said environment. When in a shoot-out, if you are shot down due to not valuing your own life, then you have no recourse against that person in or out of character. If you require further explanation on this rule, please visit the in-depth rules.
- Gunplay over Roleplay (Fail RP)
Whenever you are interacting with another player and a situation escalates, try to always keep in mind to avoid gunplay. Not every situation has to result in violence or gun fights. Ask yourself the question;
If I take my gun out right now, will it escalate the situation for no reason?
Do I need to fire my gun in this situation or can it be resolved another way without involving weapons?
- Breaking Character
- Try and blame a glitch or bug for something that did not occur in game. Go with it and turn it into a roleplay situation and make it work.
- Talk about things ‘in my head’ unless absolutely needed (Local OOC is there for a reason to allow you to inform people about something).
- Talk in an OOC manner whilst in EMS or Police radio channels.
- Talk about admins, reporting or anything else that wouldn’t make sense in character.
- Reference someone's other character deliberately.
- Go on duty as a mechanic just to repair your own car for free
- Use your job to get a free vehicle for robberies, etc. It is for your job only, use it to create roleplay scenarios.
- Use your job to kidnap or rob people repeatedly.
- Play a character that has two jobs. You are only allowed to have one job at a time per character.
- Shoot someone without saying a word.
- Shoot someone because you do not want to die.
- Pull out a weapon and kill someone if they clearly have the advantage (e.g. Knife vs Pistol). This also depends on whether you have your knife out already and how close you are. If you don’t have it out and pull it out whilst a gun is pointed at you, then you would be considered in the wrong and possibly punished for Fail RP.
