These are the rules for the ZARP Gaming Deathrun server. By playing on the server, you agree to follow all of these rules at all times.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of these rules, please contact a server staff member, and if you think any rules should be removed, added or changed, then please make a server suggestion.
See a rulebreaker in game? Type @ before your message to send a message to the staff only. If you'd prefer, you can contact a staff member through Steam, or TeamSpeak - especially if they're not online. Do not make a forum post.
Before any of the written rules are presented, use your common sense. But before you act in game, use common sense and don't do anything stupid. What the staff member says about a rule - goes. This also means, do not bend the rules to your advantage. If you don't fully understand the rules, contact a lead team member.
