Law maker: Bryan von Friently VII, Emperor of the Grand Friently Empire
Any questions can be asked through TG or via discord.
(Treaty of Forbidding Godmode and reset button, also known as the godmode treaty)
This treaty will disallow godmoding, reset buttoning and limit military size in official RMB RP as well as canonizing events not specified as being non-canon.
Recognises the threat of malicious godmoding and reset button-ing on the fun and seriousness of RP
Defines godmoding as:
An unwanted way to gain supreme abilities far beyond the capabilities of a nation,
attacking others with godlike abilities where the oponent can do nothing against,
ignore defences and oponent armies.
All in an attempt to troll, win, feel good, be a tough guy, or just to be a dick.
When one plays a character that can never be destroyed, harmed, etc. The character, however, can hurt and/or kill the other characters without giving the other characters a chance.
This is highly illegal in most, if not all, roleplays.
Sarah = Regular player
Bob = Godmodder
-Sarah aims her arrows at Bob and then releases-
-Arrows go through Bob and Bob jumps up and reaches into Sarah's chest and drags out her beating heart, squeezing the life out of it and killing her-
A way to reset past events in an attempt te undo the mistake one made or to undo the victory of an oponent or one self.
This can include anything from using clones to abstain from being killed, using timetravel to reset what happened, etc
Makes all RP that has not been defined as non-canon canon in that the effects are lasting and will be recorded throughout history.
The laws on this matter will contain several rules to make RP-ing more serious and less horrific.
Any paragraph marked with a * counts for all maps and RP, paragraphs without * only count for the Strangereal RP

Armies will only be allowed to be a certain size to ensure the RP remains fair.
How big of a military a nation is allowed to have is determined by three things:
*Defence Force stat found here: - - "https://www.nationstates.net/nation=[yournationhere]/detail=trend/censusid=46"
*Roleplay Population size they use for their nation (Not the population NS gives you) - -
There are two formulae to calculate your nations allowed military size and both as simple and fast, you can pick one of the two, not both:
AM=Allowed Military size
DF=Defence Force stat -
You can only declare war on another person or do something if both agree to it. If you are attacked against your will or if during an ongoing rp people do things that you do not want, you are able to void their actions, aka rendering their actions non-existent.
Despite the fact that the general laws of physics apply to SR, things like aerodynamics, do not necessarily need to matter. This is to allow people to have different aesthetics to their vehicles or equipment without them becoming bad, obsolete or what have you.
An example would be someone who for whichever reason desires to have trebuchets instead of normal SPG's. Assuming the cost, reload, damage, numbers etc are the same as usual they can also have the same range since it'd be purely aesthetic.
If one nation is not on the Strangereal map but tries to RP in it, and they are not busy to get put on the map, then interactions are not fully canon until they are placed upon the map.
No-one can decide matters in someone else's nation for them, you cannot decide how other nation's citizens behave, how they feel or what they do. Neither can you decide if there are rebels in someone else's nation, nor that there are citizens of x nation in that or your nation without that persons consent. Only the nation's owner gets to decide what happens in that nation. (Exceptions are things like peace treaties where one side gets to occupy a nation and gets to torture/enslave the people, this is allowed but highly frowned upon)
Weapons of Mass Destruction, which include any explosive of over 1 kilotons,
or any further weapon that will be able to kill one million people or above.
They cannot be used unless both parties in the RP consent and it is green-lighted by the RP Mods
There are several types of weapons that endanger the fun and safety of RP and which will thus be disallowed for usage
These weapons include:
Spaceships/stations with weapons and/or military personnel on them.
Orbital Weapons (excluding surface launched missiles that pass through the atmosphere for a moment)
Lasers, Plasma and other similar weaponry can only be utilized like regular firearms(see rule 3.)
*Note: If a weapon not on the list but it is weirdly powerful, ask a RP moderator if it is fine, things can still be decided to be banned or allowed on a case-to-case base.
Space Colonisation is not allowed
Space Mining is not allowed
Space Exploration is limited to the Heliosystem
and one can only land on some planets for research, circle in orbit or observe the others
Violators of this treaty will have their godmode posts been declared null and void,
meaning that any post containing malicious godmoding is not recognized and does not exist,
only non-godmode posts will be accepted.
The severity and judgement on whether something is godmoding will be on a case-to-case base by the RMB RP Moderators
1 - When a new nation (known henceforth as 'nation A') initially enters into the RMB and expresses intent on joining (whether through the direct saying thereof or beginning RP thereof), that nation will be noted by any "regulars" as fulfilling the condition of appearing.
2 - The condition of appearing is voided if said nation A immediately commits to any of the below acts listed under Conditions - 2A
3 - After the condition of appearing is noted, nation A, if defined as "fledgling" or "small," will be given a total of five days to converse with community members, understand the community dynamic, and determine if it wants to become a "regular" of the RMB RP community. This phase is called its trial.
4 - Any nation considered as "regular" of the RMB RP community that attempts to violate the above clause with the intentions listed under Conditions - 4A, will have its actions voided unless nation A has committed to any of the listed acts listed under Conditions - 2A
5 - After the satisfaction of Term/Clause 3, nation A will be considered as a "regular" and will now be subject to the clauses/terms and conditions of this treaty in relation to the perspective of being a "regular" rather than a new nation.
1A - Appearing is defined as entering into the RMB in a non-hostile or non-disruptive manner.
2A - Immediately declaring war/open hostilities on any nations, both new and regulars; godmodding as defined above; spamming repeatedly of hostile or otherwise negatively connotative or denotative comments without plausible or acceptable warrant; the intentional harassment of community members
3A - Trial is defined as the probationary period of five days in which a new nation, if considered as "fledgling" or "small," will be given a total of five days in order to partake in the actions listed under Terms -3
4A - Contempt of clause 4 under Terms will be defined as wanting to annex/take control thereof (without consent).
Any nation found guilty of contempt against the above conditions or clauses will no longer be covered under the above treaty thereafter. This includes but may not be limited to:
-bad puppet nations
Bad puppet nations are defined as nations determined to be similiar to the actions and behaviors thereof a nation that has appeared before it. A bad puppet nation may also not act or behave in the same way as the nation that the community associates it with, but still be under the same owner as the nation it is associated with.
If the community determines that a nation that might be covered under this treaty is, in fact, a puppet nation of a nation, they lose the rights under this treaty and are to be reported to either the RMB mods or the Cartography Staff
This all to ensure good RP, as less malicious godmoding as possible and the reduction of godmode based spam and a base for peace.
