PC death

Postby TGC » Wed Jul 16, 2008 6:56 pm

Would you mind having your PC die if it was the logical thing that should happen IC-wise? e.g. You have you been captured in battle by an enemy force and executing you would only be good for them and bad for their enemy.

Well if anyone knows me from simrtk, they know I'm pure IC. If my character would do it, she'll do it, no matter if I know it's going to get her killed or not.

I respect logic. If my character must logically die due to a corresponding series of events, then it's fine by me.

It's the illogical deaths that get to me, if anything. And even then, it's not so much the death that irks me as the lack of reason behind the death.

Naah. I have an arsenal of characters in my head. If its for IC purposes, then I wouldn't mind losing my current one. There is a circle of life and we all must abide by it.

Of couse I would mind, but I'd still go through with it. It's rare for me to lose a character, but when I do it's still sad and somewhat annoying because you know you can't develop them anymore.

As long as it all makes sense in the end, sure. Not like I can't make another character to do better. On the other hand, illogical deaths shouldn't really happen.

I'm an assassin; it's bound to happen sometime. :wink:

I just hope I have a good run before the inevitable. :P
