NBRP Whitelist Server Rules

General Rules

 Always stay in character and keep everything in the city.

Unless dealing with an Admin, Mod, or staff situation do not go out of character. Stay in character while in-game, and keep in-game drama, gang beef, etc in-game.

Harassment and OOC (Out-Of-Character) insults will not be tolerated.

Racism and other derogatory language will not be tolerated. We will not provide you with a list of banned words, and we expect you to know what is and isn't appropriate when interacting with other people.

Your way is not always the right way.

Just because you were caught, killed, or didn't come out as the "winner" of a scenario doesn't mean you have been wronged. Roleplay can go in any direction and that means it doesn't always go the way you want it.

Do not use exploits, hacks, crosshairs, skypacks, bloodFx, unrealistic sound packs, or menus. If you do, you will be banned.


(Random/Vehicle DeathMatch)

Randomly killing players will not be tolerated. Killing/attempting to kill someone with no roleplay or reason is forbidden.

Examples of RDM/VDM:

  • Driving over a random group of people in a car.
  • Randomly shooting or driving over people you’ve never interacted with.
  • Driving into, or shooting up a gas station’s pumps to kill as many people as possible.

Examples of what RDM/VDM isn’t:

  • Doing a drive-by on an enemy gang during an active gang war.
  • Being killed by someone who you insulted.
  • Being killed by police for attempting to violently interfere with a scene.

VDM will not be tolerated under any circumstance. The only time killing someone with a vehicle would be considered “ok” in RP is if it’s your last and only way of survival when being actively shot at with a deadly weapon

Power Gaming

Intentionally forcing, pressuring, or baiting someone into a roleplay situation that they cannot opt-out of is considered power gaming and is forbidden.

Examples of power gaming:

  • Holding someone hostage for no reason and refusing to let them go.
  • Arresting someone during a traffic stop, before any interactions.
  • Seeing /me commands through a wall and using that knowledge to take advantage of a situation.

Examples of what power gaming isn’t:

  • Holding someone hostage during a robbery for a reasonable amount of time.
  • Being robbed at gunpoint.
  • Using your police car to block an escaping criminal.

Not Valuing Life

Not valuing your life and the life of others is forbidden. You must value your life, and additionally, you must value the life of others and the consequences killing someone would bring.

Examples of Not Valuing Life:

  • Being robbed and telling the robber to kill you because you don't want to hand over your stuff.
  • Instantly killing someone over a passing joke or insult.
  • Killing yourself or your friends to avoid going to jail.
  • Pick your battles, if you’re outnumbered, take the L.

Examples of what Not Valuing Life isn’t:

  • Driving off a ramp during a high-speed pursuit.
  • Running down the highway during a pursuit after your car breaks down.
  • Killing someone after multiple insults to your gang, car, family, and pet goldfish.

New Life Rule (NLR)

When dying or respawning at the hospital, you must experience a "new life" and forget what you saw, heard or experienced leading up to your death and using any knowledge to take revenge can be considered metagaming.

Returning to the scene of a crime, violent altercation, or after death immediately is considered a violation of this rule. You must wait 30 minutes after your death to return to an area with an active scene or situation.

Examples of Not following the New Life Rule:

  • Being killed by a rival gang, respawning, and then telling your gang who and where you were killed.
  • Arresting someone after they have bled out and respawned.
  • Telling someone how their "cousin" died.
  • Remembering someone you killed.

Examples of what follows the New Life Rule:

  • Being saved by an EMS and then taking revenge on the person who killed you.
  • Participating in a gang war started over your death.
  • Return to the scene of your death to pick up your car after 30 minutes.


Abusing game mechanics to go through walls, bunny hop, gain unnatural speed, boost damage, or give you advantages through any abuse of mechanics are forbidden and will be strictly enforced.

Examples of Exploiting:

  • Making multiple characters and giving away the starter money is forbidden.
  • Use of any mod menu or exploit will result in an instant ban.
  • Combat Logging: Quitting the game to avoid being arrested, robbed, or dying.
  • Selling drugs through walls.
  • Abusing emotes to break into areas.
  • Using crosshairs.
  • Using special texture packs such as skypacks to make people more visible or modify the sky in an unrealistic way. (Texture packs are allowed, NO DAYTIME ONLY)
  • Unrealistic BloodFx
  • Kill effects (other than what comes default to GTA) includes headshot effects
  • No texture packs that make objects invisible or remove collisions
  • Sound packs that amplify footsteps

Breaking Character

Breaking character is forbidden. Players are expected to stay in character at all times while in the city, unless dealing with staff directly. You must do your best to roleplay a situation out, even if the other player attempts to break character.

Examples of Breaking Character:

  • Threatening to call the admin or interfering with an admin handling a situation.
  • Saying someone is Fail RP, breaking character, referencing servers, safe zones, and other game mechanics.
  • Asking an officer to give you a lower sentence because you are friends.

Examples of not breaking character:

  • Talking out of character when an admin is present and has declared the situation is OOC.
  • Recording a violation of rules, then submitting a ticket outside of the situation.
  • Stopping someone from Force RPing with you in an inappropriate or derogatory way.


Using knowledge gained outside of your character's experiences, outside communication (Discord), or any other out-of-game platforms is forbidden.

Examples of Metagaming:

  • Using discord to tell your friends you're being robbed so they can rescue you.
  • Coordinating a gang war through discord.
  • Stream sniping or streaming to your friends so they know where you are.

Examples of what isn't Metagaming:

  • Talking to your in-game friends while not playing.
  • Streaming your gameplay to friends who aren't playing or in the city.
  • Talking to and discussing in-game events out of character while not in the city.

Fail Roleplay

Fail Roleplay (FailRP) is the act of failing to roleplay, not taking roleplay seriously, or generally treating the city as a non-roleplay environment and is forbidden. It includes, but is not exclusive to: exploiting, power gaming, and breaking character.

Examples of Fail Roleplay:

  • "GTA Driving" or driving recklessly everywhere you go.
  • Baiting police, attempting to bait players to chase and fight you.
  • Intentionally breaking scenes with no build-up, reason, or stream snipe.
  • Using /me to talk instead of using /me to only show actions
  • Sabotaging an RP scenario by getting involved in something that didn’t originally involve you or you had no business being in.
  • Continuing to scuff a situation when someone is breaking rules. Do not go out of character (OOC) for example due to someone else breaking rules, continue the situation as best as possible and open a report after it's over.
  • Redoing RP scenarios over and over again. You can’t rob banks across the city without changing your clothes or vehicle for example. RP scenarios should be original and organic and you shouldn’t do the same thing over and over again just because it works.
  • Whilst in a scenario, utilizing the info tab in RP. If you want to know how much money you have or how many people are on one job, find out in RP.

Examples of what isn't Fail Roleplay:

  • Roleplaying in an unconventional manner or an unconventional character within the world.
  • Creating unconventional roleplay situations and events that still fit within the city.
  • Voice ID, but within reason. This shouldn’t be your only way of identifying who someone is.

Standing around camping bodies to shoot at police or simply camping bodies for long periods of time to force respawn people is considered Fail RP. If your intent is to force someone to be fatal, then you're not really RPing, just trying to abuse a mechanic.

Situational Rules


Robberies, crime, and shakedowns are accepted aspects of city life, however, there are rules that you must consider before robbing someone:

You can rob:

  • EMS, Police, and other players actively working a whitelisted job. Keep in mind there are some things in their inventories you cannot use like their police issued weapons.
  • People doing jobs from the job center. Being on the job does not give you a blanket exemption from robberies and, given the right scenario, you can be robbed while on the way to sell fish or finish your delivery run.

You cannot rob:

  • In unrealistic areas, you wouldn’t rob someone somewhere near a police station for example. Other than this, there is no limit to where you can and cannot rob people.
  • New players by camping spawn areas.
  • Someone by camping job sites or legal job locations.
  • Someone while in the middle of a delivery job, and inversely you cannot be robbed in the middle of a job (this means someone in the middle of an animation or job action).

You may steal:

  • Everything in a player's inventory to an extent (Realistic amounts. While we can agree "it's their fault" that they had so much, it's all too common for someone to report this then turn around and argue "it's their fault" when committing the act and it becomes a headache). Also, you may not force a player to give you their debit card pin or to withdraw money from their ATM.
  • A player's car. However, you may not force a player to give you the keys to their car.


While much of this falls under robberies such as but not limited to; do not scam people in safe zones, unrealistic locations. We understand there's a moment when too much is too much. While keeping the integrity of organic RP intact there must be limits in place so that freedoms are not taken for granted and ultimately abused. And in addition to situations in where “you cannot rob:” the following will not be tolerated:

  • You cannot scam people for assets such as cars and/or houses.
  • You cannot scam people for unrealistic amounts of money (greater than $1000).
  • You cannot use forms of metagaming to conduct scams that should be done within the game only.

Violent Crime

Robberies, crime, and shakedowns are accepted aspects of city life, however, there are rules that you must consider before killing or committing a violent crime:

  • Killing Police: Your roleplay cannot just be "Killing Police". You may defend yourself if threatened by police, attempting to flee, or in conflict with the police. Simply killing cops to kill cops is considered RDM/VDM.
  • Killing EMS: You may not kill or injure EMS unnecessarily. EMS must fear for their lives, however EMS reserve the right to not respond to a scene if they feel an area is dangerous or hostile.
  • Killing New Players: While allowed, you cannot seek out and target new players in an attempt to make them lose their starting cash, or kill them for being new.
  • Assassination/Hitman Roleplay: Assassination/Hitman roleplay is allowed, however, you must have a valid reason, roleplay, and justification for assassinating someone. You cannot simply pay to kill others over small disputes or as a joke.
  • Shakedowns and protection: Gangs, criminals, and illicit organizations are allowed to shakedown drug zones, player-owned businesses, and other gangs to demand protection money. However, you may not ask whitelisted jobs or non-player owned businesses (vineyards, hotdog sellers, etc.) for protection money.
  • You must properly roleplay any of the above situations, and demands must be reasonable. The onus is on you, not the victim, to properly roleplay criminal situations.
  • If you are caught in the crossfire: Being accidentally killed by a hitman or being caught in the crossfire of a gang war in a known gang area is not necessarily RDM. If you believe it is, please submit a ticket and admins will make a decision.


Without the seedy underground, gangs, and criminal networks what kind of city would Los Santos be? However, even gangs have rules they need to follow:

Gang Whitelists: Gang whitelists allow you to maintain your gang, "hire-and-fire" members, promote/demote, and give you access to certain in-game mechanics only available to all gangs.

Gang Whitelist requirements:

  • 4 or more established members when founding your gang. (Must be gang free or wait 7 days once leaving a gang).
  • Dirty money to bribe city officials (subject to change at any time and TBD price).
  • Must have some sort of rank system. You can have as many ranks as you'd like but must specify the order you want them and which ranks require access to the recruit/gang menu.

Once you have these, open a ticket in #gang-whitelist.

If you are approved in the ticket you must then pay and coordinate your approval in-game with The Fixer. The Fixer is a real person, who is part of the community. To get your approval you must successfully meet the fixer and transfer the funds.

The Fixer doesn't like attention, so when you approach them make sure that:

  • It’s the right time of day
  • You are discreet and away from the crowd
  • Be careful who you’re with and who is listening or watching
  • If the Fixer or any of their associates are killed by you, you will immediately be rejected

If The Fixer feels you’re not serious, you may have your application delayed

Gangs are allowed to:

  • Claim colors, vehicles, and clothing (we will NOT white list them for your gang, do not ask)
  • Make alliances
  • Demand protection money
  • Fight other gangs
  • Claim and defend territory from other gangs
  • own legal front businesses
  • Have gang discords and community groups

Gangs are not allowed to:

  • Demand unrealistic amounts of protection/tax money
  • Conduct gang activity in unrealistic areas
  • Act as friend groups and not gangs.
  • Use platforms like Discord to coordinate gang wars, send information, stream, or metagame
  • Merge with others without reasonable time limits. (Members cannot leave and merge into another gang within 7 days)
  • Have more than 20 members. (This can be re-evaluated when the city is more populated).


If you choose to serve the community by providing various services, there are rules that must be followed:

Business: A business is a service you provide to the city of Los Santos whether it's providing food, entertainment or repairing cars. Anything that requires you to have an active business license falls under this category.

Business license requirement:

  • Must have at least 4 accumulated days of playtime in the city.
  • Must have a business idea and resources to allow for it (such as map mods or other imported items if necessary) Note: Requests like these require the deity supporter role.
  • Must pitch your business idea to the city officials for approval.
  • A non-refundable deposit will be required for obtaining your business license upon approval. This doesn't include the payment required to occupy a facility to conduct business. This license will have to be renewed every 15 RL days.

Businesses are allowed to:

  • Provide services in exchange for money in the amount they decide.
  • Can decide who is allowed to work for them and who isn't if the tools allow.
  • Can ask/hire a gang for protection.
  • Can aggressively compete with other opposing businesses.
  • Have business discords and community groups.
  • Can have gang affiliation (HOWEVER; Only one legal business front can be owned by a gang at a time collectively. This doesn't include gang protection.)

As a final note on businesses, a license can be revoked by a city official if illegal activities are occurring and which are caught by the authorities. The same goes for a business you may purchase, so you are responsible for what your employees do while clocked in and representing your business.

White List Job Guidelines

The Following whitelisted jobs are required to complete a minimum weekly playtime:

  • Police: Three hours
  • EMS: Three hours
  • Approved businesses: Two hours
  • Mechanics: (no minimum time requirement)

The following whitelisted roles are required to complete a minimum weekly playtime:

  • Chief of Police: 6 hours
  • Chief of EMS: 6 hours
  • Whitelisted and approved businesses owners: 4 hours

Please note, that Chiefs and business owners are expected to keep track of these hours as they see fit. These are not strictly hard numbers that must be met every week without exception as long as you give notice that you can't meet your obligation.

Equivalent Hours Rule:

To keep EMS and PD active, all members of PD (aside from new recruits) must spend the equivalent time spent on their civilian or gang character on their EMS or PD characters. For example:

  • If your character is a gang member, and you have a character that is a police officer and you spend 4 hours fighting in a gang war, you must play an equivalent 4 hours on your character that is a police officer (on or off duty). This means that you are allowed to be on your LSPD character off duty, but must maintain your character. You can still do non-PD jobs or activities on that character but must remain in the city and roleplay as an off-duty cop if you are not on duty.
  • Please note that this requirement only requires those who are active on civilian or alternative characters. Someone who plays 8 hours as EMS is not required to play 8 hours as a civilian.
  • Hours will be generally tracked by EMS and LSPD management, and those found not meeting equivalent hour requirements will be given a warning or asked to leave their position.
  • Hours do not need to be done back to back or all in one block, but there must be a balance of playtime between characters.

Whitelist Role Requirements

To maintain the integrity of RP scenarios, high-ranking EMS, Police, and certain whitelisted, player-owned business people must maintain separate characters if they decide to create a criminal character.


  • You may not share inventories, money, inventories, vehicles, houses, or stashes between characters
  • You may not hold a commanding or decision-making role within a criminal organization or gang
  • You may not reference your role as the whitelisted character (going out of character) at any point, even if you see department/company rules being violated
  • You may not share information or knowledge between characters
  • You must maintain an entirely separate existence between the two characters. This rule will be strictly enforced, and people found transferring items, information, or resources between their characters are at risk of losing their roles and/or having characters wiped.

Below is a list of jobs and their corresponding ranks required to follow the above rules:

  • EMS: Chief and up
  • LSPD: Sgt and up
  • Sheriff: All ranks

Cameras and Video Evidence

With the introduction of the NBRP Legal system, we'd like to clarify what constitutes video evidence and who is able to provide it.

Those who are wearing body cams must provide video evidence (if they're recording):

  • Law Enforcement
  • EMS

Please note, if you are part of the above roles, you are not required to record your gameplay (some people may not be able to record), but if you are you should provide it as best you can in relation to the situation.

  • If you are able to record and regularly provide video evidence in prosecution but are found to be withholding evidence to benefit yourself, this will be brought up with your chief and disciplinary action will be taken as appropriate.
  • Civilians, and those not on the above list, cannot use go-pros or use the evidence they have from "body cams" or "streaming on Live PD" or "Streaming on Twitch" and must be using some kind of emote (i.e. /e camera or /e record) or appear to be recording in some way.
  • Using house peepholes or other "camera" devices counts are recorded footage.
  • As with all rules, there are exceptions and exceptional situations that can make evidence valid or invalid, or where the footage would be acceptable as evidence when it usually wouldn't. Get creative, but also be realistic!

Gang Territories & Gang Wars

With the introduction of a very advanced territory system to give criminal organizations a chance to thrive in the illegal market, compete to be the “top dog” and control the drug market; there's rules that MUST be followed.

Reason To Declare

You cannot simply declare on a rival gang just because you’re bored or want to shoot. There must always be valid reason in RP ONLY to declare war on a rival gang. Any beef outside of RP and/or the city in general will not be tolerated as a valid reason to declare war.

Rules of War

Outside of normal rules of engagement in RP the following are exceptions in gang vs.gang rivalry.


  • Kill someone wearing the target affiliated gangs flag and/or biker vest(cut) you’re currently at war with.
  • Kill someone on the job that's wearing the target affiliated gangs flag and/or biker vest(cut).
  • Camping job site rules still apply.
  • Kill someone wearing any affiliated gangs flag and/or biker vest(cut) in an uncontrolled territory while not declared.


  • Kill someone on the job who is not wearing a target affiliated gangs flag or biker vest(cut) (Obviously rules of RP outside of gang wars still apply).
  • Kill someone for simply driving a car that has a paint job or lights the same color as the affiliated target gang.
  • Kill because they are at war with your “buddies”. (You cannot kill an affiliated gang member(s) because you’re rolling around with a gang that's at war and get killed in the crossfire.)

Note: When caught in the crossfire of an active war that you intentionally placed yourself in, engaging in a fire fight without declaring will be considered RDM. We will not accept this as your “excuse” to shoot.
