No Hacks. You are not allowed to use any hacks of any kind. Mods are allowed as long as they only affect YOUR gameplay, are not a threat to the server and do not give you any unfair advantages/items/etc. Examples of approved mods are Shaders or Optifine. Examples of unapproved mods are autojoin or underground minimaps.
Do not take advantages of glitches. This is considered cheating and will be punished as so. Please report any glitches you find immediately and privately to a staff member. If you tell/show the server about the glitch, that is breaking the rules, and you will be punished.
You may not use alts to give your main account advantages. Examples of advantages include first-join kits and Quest World prizes.
NO mob grinders, xp farms or spawners. This includes anything that forces mobs to spawn, automatically kills mobs that have spawned, or moves them to a more convenient spot to be killed. if you have a natural spawner, no changes should be made to the area to encourage spawn rate, or means of killing spawned mobs… If you encounter a natural spawner, no changes should be made to the area to encourage spawn rate, or means of killing spawned mobs.
No 1×1 towers. They are unnecessary and annoying. This rule is wavied only when in the Nether. Due to, those without fly are able to reach places for resources that are otherwise unobtainable without it. We ask that you be mindful and remove them when finished.
You are only allowed to have 15 of each animal type (excluding claimed horses.) The same rule applies to all ranks.
Users are responsible for their own account. This means that we will not accept the “it was my brother/sister/mother/father/dog/hacker/ect” as an excuse for breaking any/all rules.
No player ran banks. Bank’s ran by users are not allowed on RnC. This can cause problems between users with money or items that are not monitored or have adequate proof of. Staff also are unable to track or confirm any accusations against or from bank owners.
All rules apply to both in-game chat and Discord chat!
Respect all players and property. This includes but not limited to, name calling, putting someone down, making fun of, disrespecting, stealing, griefing CLAIMED land, harassing someone, and scamming players. This rule applies to both open chat and private chats. If we receive screenshots from any player showing disrespect from another player we will handle the situation as if it were done in open chat.

If we receive screenshots from any player/staff member showing inappropriate behavior/comments/etc from another player/staff member, we will handle the situation as if it were done in open chat.
No cursing. We have players from all over the world, so a word that you do not consider a swear may be considered a swear to someone else. It is impossible to filter all swear words, so if you are ever unsure, privately ask a staff member for clarification before saying it in global chat.
No capitalized messages. The only exception to this rule is when using caps for grammatical correctness, such as the words I and A when being used properly in a sentence or the first letter in each sentence. Words such as tbh/omg/oml/etc are not an exception to this rule. In game names that have a lot of capitalized letters are allowed, but we ask that you do not abuse this exception to the rule. Nicknames that violate the caps rule are not allowed.

This also includes the spamming of /TPA requests and relog messages.

Be patient. We understand that at times you need staff’s attention. Please note that staff is busy at all times and that we will get to you as soon as we are free.
