    Security Team Rework

    We have decided that the security crew needs a rework of their revives to combat the frequent on the job risks.
    Security Team members will have a decreased chance of getting severe debuffs.
    Also, the revive cool down is a flat rate of three days instead of the usual increasing cool downs.
    With that small policy update out of the way, we will explain what the main part of this update is about.


    What is the Bounty Board?


    The Bounty Board is a list of wanted criminals who have committed serious crimes.
    In an effort to better apprehend these people, Lux Security has disclosed their information to the public.
    Visitors of Lux who are willing to help may hunt down wanted criminals and turn them in.
    How does the Bounty Board work?

    People who have committed crimes against civilians will have their information posted on the board.
    Criminals who have engaged in combat with the Lux Security Team are also posted on it.
    When you are listed on this Bounty Board, your right to
    Death/CRP Consent is revoked.
    People may hunt you down at any given time until you are killed or turned in.
    Crimes such as but not limited to the following can get you placed on the Bounty Board.
    They also come with a punishment when you are turned in, which comes in several tiers.

    Offense Tiers and Associated Crimes:
    Heinous Crimes (Soft Ban - 1 Month): Several Murders
    Serious Crimes (Soft Ban - 3 Days to 1 Week): One Murder, Severe Assault, Combating Security
    Minor Crimes (Soft Ban - 1 to 3 days): Assault, Aiding and Abetting


    Rewards for Turing in Offenders Based on Their Crime:
    Heinous Crimes - 75,000 Pixels
    Serious Crimes - 25,000 Pixels
    Minor Crimes - 5,000 Pixels
    Not Turned in Alive - 1/2 the initial reward amount



    What if I am on the Bounty Board?

    If you are on the list and at risk of death by bounty hunters, you may surrender to avoid dying.
    They will have to respect your surrender and then turn you in, and then security will handle it from there.
    Once you have surrendered, you are not allowed to resist being turned in.

    Will there be any way to ensure that security doesn't make a crime seem bigger due to an OOC grudge so they can let the system do it's work and get someone offed?

    RP staff are the ones posting bounties for this reason.
    People tell staff about a situation and they verify if it really happened.

    So let me get this straight:

    1. Security now have infinite revives and are essentially immortal.
    2. Security are able to kill off other players, even bypassing the the "if you run out of revives" rule in some cases but they cannot be killed off in return
    3. Once they revive, they are in no way weaker and can get right back into it while everyone else has to wait for injuries due to cloning to heal
    Sounds like plot armor to me

    Sounds like the server’s being actively tweaked to support a specific type of character

    Security should also be enforced to use non-deadly methods of arresting people. Only using deadly force when it is the only viable option. Make sure the perp fires first!

    You have committed crimes against Skyrim and her people
    What say you in your defense?
    (You see, the joke is in Skyrim there's like no way to avoid hold guards.)

    TBH my criminals have never had trouble with Security, directly in CRP, unless I deliberately caused a big scene. Kind of like IRL. Basically, if security is after your criminal character, maybe you don't commit crimes in a smart way. Or maybe you're just a violent psycho.


    And if you bring in a gang of alts or multi-client allies, then security has to up it's game from 'security' to "SWAT"

    Think of these changes as a 1 star going up to 3 stars in GTA

    I actually completely agree with this.

    Security should have an escalation process, first attempt to get suspect to surrender without using any force, if they resist use non-lethal force only and if that fails and every single other possible course of action has already been attempted or is not possible then that is the only moment where lethal force should be used.

    The only exception to this rule should be if a suspect is literally on the verge of taking someones life.

    The cops we have at the moment are just gung ho trigger happy autists with badges tbh.

    Also good job to the mods for reversing the stupid changes they made to security.
