It would TOTALLY be LOL worthy - of course if it wasn't me!

I somehow feel like the thread was meant to go in that direction...


Bound to agree. I actually thought there's a dig behind it, but I wasn't smart enough to figure out at whom it's directed exactly!

And in case it was a serious request: I'd hate to be the guy Mr. John Spartan tests his buzz-baton (Show of hands: Who used that in a sexual RP scene already?) on, in passing. ;)

That doesn't sound fun to me.

It would be fun to watch if we had the background, unimportant, disposable characters like movies and tv shows do. You always know who's going to die first. It's the guy that always stands in the back and doesn't talk much that gets blown up first.

But to be in the middle of typing out an emote then dying, not fun.

YOU SIR ARE A GENIUS!

So as we see 100% of the people that voted on this thread are not cool with randomly dieing if it was a scripted thing.... but in previous polls I think around half are just fine with randomly being stabbed by a black caste.

Something to think about here.

There is no magic on how your death button is pushed. You could be picking flowers... buying some fish from a vendor at the docks and "BAM!" your character is dead (or the attempt was made). Just because it's you doesn't mean the precedent behind the contract was when you gave someone a dirty look.

But because of the support for this roleplay, some are fine (or pretending to be fine) with their random death... (unless it is them). ;)

I'd have a problem with anyone, killer or not, that came up behind me and stabbed me with some insta-kill blade.

Well one would think a BC would have a plausible IC reason for a one hit kill. But I guess that is too much to ask for some folks. :hiding:

Only instance I could see this being appropriate is for warriors going to battle. But even then I would think it more annoying than fun. As others mentioned we don’t play the quiet character in the corner only meant to be cannon fodder – we are all the leading characters.

I Like the random idea. But perhaps make it less severe than death? 0.5% of the population gets the flu…or…dar- kosis (gasp!) or sprains an ankle or… Well…something that the player could actually go on rp’ing with, instead of just killing them off mid scene.

Not sure. Usually I just rp these things spontaneously and i see many others do that too. I dont think we really need a scripted system to come up with accidents and dangers. Characters get sick or experience accidents – though I never met anyone playing out the dar-kosis yet. That one is pretty extreme so if I ever pick that up I planned killing off my character at some point anyway….hmmm…idea…

Anyway I would not protest against a system like that with non instant lethal accidents. Random death I don’t like. I still haven’t decided if I am pro perma death or not, but a random system like this would just be "you are being punished randomly for nothing - now go sit in a corner and watch the rest of us play for 24 hours". I dont see the point in that.

About the topic being related to black caste: I would not take perma death from a black caste unless I knew ooc one was after me. Now in the case i knew I would make the rp as bloody damn well epic as I could …making it worth the effort to actually go perma dead. If the black caste just went – flower picking - wham - death with no rp, I would not honor it. I don’t see my stance on the topic much different when it’s about the bc compared to the “random death” idea. My basic premise is still “I want as good rp as I can get”.

Is it realistic? Yes.
Is it funny? Also, yes.
Would I participate? Nope.

Same as if some random black caste ran up and stabbed me for no reason, I might run with being seriously wounded for a while and mentally scarred from the incident, but I'm just not willing to off my character unexpectedly over nothing. If I saw an end to her that made sense or seemed inexorable, like Cadence finally snapped and strangled her with his whip or something after she pushed him a little too far...then yeah. LOL But flowerpot falling on the head or bored black caste? Nope.

Sounds like a one trick pony.

But then I like stories. Can things happen that are out of the blue? They do in rp a lot of times. I would rather be surprised by some of the people that I RP with than some scripted randomness without rhyme or reason. And yes that could happen, so let it happen to some NPCs. Unless someone wants to volunteer to be that person disposed of. :o

Just seems like signing up in a place that has something a lot like griefing me me. :ohgawd:
