Mumau’s Prison is a place where the swine who practice total noobery are locked up for life, and can only acquire freedom through hard work in the mines.
Players may work for and sell items in stores in order to earn money. That money may then be used to purchase ranks, the highest of which is freedom. Free members of our server may build in the wilderness and enjoy a happy life, knowing they’ve served their time!

Guards are a special member of the prison population, although they too are trapped inside. Guards are responsible for enforcing the rules of the prison. They also earn an hourly salary for their service. Guards may earn their freedom if they return to the prison as a prisoner and relinquish their guard status. Guards may purchase kits of armor to protect themselves and ensure order is maintained in the prison. They may also access all areas of the prison. There are three types of guards:
Trainee Guard: These are new guards who have few additional powers beyond regular prisoners. They earn $1000 per hour. They are responsible for teaching new players the rules and helping others. After 3 days of Trainee Guard duty, a Senior Guard may promote a trainee to a Patrol Guard at their discretion, or return a trainee to the prison population. They may not jail others, but may purchase chainmail kits to protect themselves and others from harm. Because they are guards in training, they may only access B and C-blocks of the prison.
Patrol Guard: These are the “stock” guard. They earn $1500 per hour. They are responsible for enforcing the prison rules. Patrol guards may imprison those who are breaking the prison rules. They may purchase plots and do most of what prisoners can do, but they are required to do their job as guards. They may be fired by senior guards for not doing their job. Patrol Guards have full access to all prison areas.
Elite Guard: These guards make $2000 per hour. Elite guards have the ability to hire and fire other guards. All senior guard decisions may be overturned by Wardens. Corrupt senior guards may be fired at any time by Wardens.
Guard status is a privilege granted at the preference of Wardens. It may be taken away at any time for any reason. Guards are expected to follow rules outlined below. - You may not kill others without reason. Your job is to protect prisoners, not kill them. If you abuse PVP for your own gain, you may be demoted to a common prisoner. - If a prisoner is found to have a sword or armor, you may ask them to turn over their items by slowing counting to “5” in chat. Although this is not a jailable offense, you may use your discretion to jail repeat offender for a maximum of 10 minutes. - Use the magic word “Mumau” somewhere in your guard application to prove you have read these rules. - Use /gme chainarmor as a Trainee Guard or /gme diamondarmor as a Patrol Guard to purchase armor kits. Chain armor kits costs $250, while diamond armor kits cost $500. - Jail player using the command /jail [PLAYERNAME] [TIMEINMINUTES] to jail players. Only Patrol and Elite Guards may put others in jail. - Guards may use their own best judgment in cases where rules are not defined. However, they must bear in mind that the purpose of their job is to protect prisoners, not persecute them. Guards should be role models, not villains! - Remember that Elite Guards are chosen by popular vote! As an Elite Guard, your decisions are always judged by the prison population as a whole. It is in your own best interest to keep your job by making as many other prisoners happy as possible.

MONEY AND SHOPPING
You have an iConomy account on the server. Some vital money-related commands: - /money – view your balance - /money pay [PLAYERNAME] [AMOUNT] – pay someone an amount of money There are various shops through the prison. When you find one, left-click on the block below its displayed item to view info about the shop, and right-click the block to buy or sell. Holding down shift while right-clicking will buy or sell a full stack of items. COURTYARD The prison features a courtyard, in which players may buy plots of land. These may be used to build homes. Prices for the plots are listed on signs around the plots. Purchased plots are protected from destruction by others, and doors and chests are protected as well. A-Prisoners will be able to sell items in player-created stores. The courtyard is a perfect area for such stores, given its high traffic. You MAY NOT build stores in areas other than the courtyard. Doing so is a bannable offense! You may NOT abuse stores to “game” or trick the system, or for any other purposes other than to legitimately sell your wares to customers in a responsible manner!
There are various types of mines throughout the prison. As you attain higher-level access to the prison you will have access to additional mines, which will make it easier and more fun to earn money as you progress. Mines will be occasionally regenerated. They may only be regenerated by Wardens. If a Warden is on and a mine is depleted, POLITELY ask a Warden to reset it. Make sure it’s truly depleted, as they will only be reset if they are mostly depleted.
