PVP Rules

Direct Links

Important note

All rules listed on this page serve to regulate the direct conflict between players in a gaming environment (PvP) meaning that they are part of the game itself (Either mechanical designed by Conan [Both parties must consent to Mechanical] or dice conflict designed by Old Guard). Please keep in mind that games should be fun at any point in time and should never be used to elevate oneself above others. 

That said, the general rules of the server are always applicable, so please stay friendly and reasonable while fighting each other!

PvP Options & Hard reminders 

PVP Join (declare who you are fighting with): This means you have every intent on fighting. You are an active part of combat and can not claim to be an innocent party in the conflict.

PVP Flee: This means you are fleeing the combat area.  You MAY NOT, gather people and return.
After the Int roll, when it comes to your turn, you can attempt your flee using your standard action.  (You must have 2 successes in order to flee the combat.) If you attack in any way, your status changes to fighting.

PVP Surrender:  This means you have no intention of fighting and will be subjected to the cons.

PVP Observe:  You are going to watch the fight.  You can not assist in any way.  If the PvP was not declared on you, you are not subject to cons.

Stalling on a PvP declaration for an unreasonable amount of time, or for allies to arrive, can end in admin intervention for avoiding roleplay. 

Pre-Buffing: Applying beneficial status effects to yourself while inside of a scene or conflict but not in a PvP initiative

  • Pre-Buffing is permitted.
  • While within an RP scene that devolves into Intent, any spell cast or ability used to pre-buff is considered to have been used on your first turn in initiative, and consumes whatever action type it costs to activate (Standard, Bonus, Free, etc). 
  • If the effect of the Spell wears out before the Intent is dropped you are permitted to act like you would in a normal intent.

Preparation:

  • Preparation (Buffing outside of a scene or conflict) is permitted with no restrictions

Joining late: Those who arrive to the Intent within 10 minutes of intent being dropping can join in the PvP. See rule 10a for details.

All parties involved, if it comes into question, should be able to provide screenshots of the intent in their local chat – This must include your entire screen, not a snippet

Thralls, Mounts, and Pets are banned in PvP

General PvP Rules

May I be firendly to them, Asterix?

Rule 1

NO KOS: Kill On Sight is prohibited on our server. What this means is that you may not engage anyone in PvP, or deal damage to them in any way, shape, or form without a prior roleplay emote including <PvP INTENT> at the end.  If you do not have a valid reason, and this comes to light in a ticket made after the fact, the PVP will be retconned.

Rule 2

Time Management:  In the case of Dice being called, due to time constraints of one member of the party/scene, they reserve the right to veto the use of emotes.  Forgoing emotes/dialogue for the duration of the scene – This includes all members of the PvP encounter – and does not have to be a unanimous decision.
Turn time under this condition should take no longer than 3 minutes
.  If it exceeds 5 your turn is skipped.  Honest questions are exceptions.  Purposely stalling time for cooldowns is strictly against the rules.  You will still follow the PvP Dice Guide for the format.

Rule 3

Being downed: Being downed in PvP occurs when a character reaches 0 hp, and has no ability that can bring them back from being downed. Being downed does not mean your character died. The outcome of a PvP encounter can be anything ranging from bruising or theft, to severe consequences such as character death (A PK ticket must be opened for this consequence prior to the PVP, even if the scene is currently underway to allow a member of Staff to approve the request). The consequence should match the preceding roleplay. Severe consequences require a significant amount of roleplay.

Rule 4

Removing a downed player: When a player is downed, the downed player can only be dragged off by someone who had joined that PvP instance. Someone who has stated anything other than <PvP Intent/Accept/Join> in the initial intention cannot remove a downed combatant from the scene. In the case you are going to drag off a fellow combatant, you must use the command /shout including your emote of you dragging them off. You must walk until you are out of sight of the enemy.  Once you are out of sight, you will be able to run. You may NOT return with reinforcements aftering dragging someone away from the scene.

Rule 5

PvP Evidence: Video footage preferred or ample screenshots are viable evidence in a PvP dispute. Options of Video Capture Software: Nvida Shadowplay (Shift+Z in game to open its menu), or there are several free types of software available online. Claims without proper evidence cannot be ruled upon.

Rule 6

Class Abilities: There are some spells/abilities that change mechanics, and have rules applied to them. If you have questions about if an action is a Class ability ask the player to explain. If you are still unsure please reach out to staff for a ruling.

Rule 7

Fortress: If you are PvP intented within your land claim/build by a group of 4 or more players, you may call into effect the Fortress Rule. This means a Raid Declaration must be made in order to continue the PvP. If there is no raid declaration, the attacking party must leave the premises of your land claim/build.

If you have a party over the allowed amount to initiate a Pvp on a premises, you may not intentionally try to bait the residents of where you are to throw out an intent to overrule this ruling. For homeowners, if you find a party doing just that, make a ticket with presented ample proof and they will be made to Raid or lower their numbers to continue the antagonism.

Rule 8

Fleeing rules: If a player chooses to flee during a PvP intent or at any point during the PvP instance using any means (Flee rolls, magic spells, etc), they must try their hardest to avoid engagement and must attempt to leave the scene. Fleeing a combat means you leave the area, you can not go and get reinforcements and return to the location of the combat. <PvP Flee> must be declared.


If fleeing a mechanical pvp, the fleeing party has to run or hide for 10 minutes without warps. The mechanical fight ends once the party is downed. You may not use OOC warps (/warp hub, /home, etc) for 30 minutes afterwards unless a spell or ability is used that lets you travel instantly. This does not include warping back to your body if you were downed in mechanical.

Rule 9

Skirmish Consequences: Declaring a <PvP Intent – Skirmish> or having your intent reduced to Skirmish consequences via certain abilities or spells has certain effects. No injury status is automatically assigned to any player and no harsh consequences may be performed. The consequences that would be considered mild and acceptable to be performed would be: application of the Wounded status effect, restrainment, or short detainment. Examples of what would not be acceptable: enslavement, rape, dismemberment, major injuries, spell consequences, robbery, or capture.

Rule 10

10a PVP Instance:  Upon <PvP Intent> being declared, both parties are responsible for keeping track of the next 10 minutes. Within these minutes, others that happen across are allowed to participate in the combat through <PvP Join/Observe>. (Granted they do not appear due to using OOC gained knowledge.)

Time Stamps or Emotes are required as markers. After those 10 minutes, the combat is locked until the consequence phase when one side has won.   

10b Consequence Phase: In this phase, if there is no immediate interruption, Temporary IC relocation of those defeated for the purposes of privately doing cons is permitted so long as they are not held after cons are dealt (Unless the con is detainment). 

Those that have happened, or do happen, across the scene can interfere in the consequences with the chance to declare another <PvP Intent>. The victor/victors of the previous combat alone have an advantage in fleeing from it should they choose to.

Each member that lost the pvp encounter may receive cons.

For those that lost the Pvp encounter, they cannot be attacked again so long as they are sitting below 1/10th of their total Hit points, or an hour has passed since the Con phase was concluded one way or another. If engaged, the original party that lost only has to show their hit points are below this threshold to keep from being engaged again within the time frame.

If the party that lost instigates a fight, proof will need to be submitted to show the aggression and thus override this clause.

A character that logs on in their home and walks out of their home to view an immediate encounter in progress does not count as showing up due to OOC knowledge. It should be expected that if a fight starts in one’s compound or home, other residents are likely to show up and be able to interfere in the allowed stages naturally.

If proof is shown that a player was contacted OOCly to show up from out in the world it will be handled as meta.

Rule 11

No Value of Life: Should a character show no value for their life in RP, they are made available for PK without the normal PK requirements applying. Examples of this might include taunting an enemy who wishes to kill you, identifying yourself as an undead to someone who has stated they would slay the undead, or making extreme claims that might incite others to wish to stop a potential threat. If you believe someone is showing No Value of Life, open a DM ticket with the relevant RP in screenshots. If approved, fill out a PK form in that ticket.

Rule 12

PvP in ‘Light’ Hub: Any PvP in the surface hub is locked to Skirmish Cons.

Dice System

Dice Combat Guide

Initiating PvP – To initiate PvP, declare such with an OOC message following an emote indicating your intent to attack. For example: “/me cackles and prepares to cast a spell “Fools! My power level is over 9000!” (<PvP Intent – Bad Guys>)”. The scene is still open for 10 minutes after intent is dropped, and newcomers can join the initiative at the top of the next round. After 10 minutes, the scene is instanced until the Con phase. Refer to PvP Rule #10 for more details on PvP instancing. 

Starting PvP – All players present will first either join in the PvP with <PvP Join (Side joining)>, <PvP Flee>, <PvP Surrender>, or <PvP Observe>. All answers to initiative should follow an emote indicating what you are doing. For example: “/me draws their sword and prepares to answer in kind (<PvP Join Astralyn>)”

  • If joining, specify what side you’re joining in with
  • If fleeing, you will only be able to roll flee roles until you either escape or are downed.
    • If you escape, you must leave the scene
    • To flee, use the ‘Flee – Evade’ or ‘Flee – Outrun’ abilities in RPR. 2 successful flee rolls must be made before you can flee. Using these abilities requires your standard action, and also counts as a ‘Dash’ action, allowing you to move your base movement speed again
  • If surrendering, you are treated as if you have 0 HP, and can be conned if the opposition wins the intent. If all on one side surrenders, that side loses by default. 
  • If observing, you must stay for the entirety of the PvP encounter, until the instance opens up. If you choose to observe, you may not initiate <PvP Intent> with either party involved, though if you are attacked you may defend yourself. If you bait an intent by harassing the other party, this is void

 

Those fighting will roll initiative (this is found in the Shift+R menu under Dice Tab), and the order will be from the highest numbers to the lowest numbers. In the case of two numbers being the same, those two players will roll again to see who goes first between them. Once initiative is accounted for, and everyone is ready, the player who rolled the highest may take their turn and begin the Combat.

 

Stalling on a PvP declaration for an unreasonable amount of time, or for allies to arrive, can end in admin intervention for avoiding roleplay. 

 

Ending PvP – PvP is over when only one side remains, and all other opponents have either fled, surrendered (Can be done at any point during the combat), or been reduced to 0 HP. Once PvP is over, the victors may choose to deal consequences, or ‘cons’ to all of the fallen. Victors must declare their cons and follow all consent rules in doing so.

 

PRE-BUFFING: Applying beneficial status effects to yourself while inside of a scene or conflict but not in a PvP initiative

  • Pre-Buffing is permitted.
  • While within an RP scene that devolves into Intent, any spell cast or ability used to pre-buff is considered to have been used on your first turn in initiative, and consumes whatever action type it costs to activate (Standard, Bonus, Free, etc). 
  • If the effect of the Spell wears out before the Intent is dropped you are permitted to act like you would in a normal intent.

 

PREPARATION:

  • Preparation (Buffing outside of a scene or conflict) is permitted with no restrictions

 

Thralls, Mounts, and Pets are banned in PvP

 

How combat works – Every turn in dice consists of a standard action, a bonus action, a movement action, and free actions. Below is the list of what you can do on your turn. Try to be considerate of your fellow Roleplayers, and consider what you will do on your turn BEFORE your turn comes around. Preparing your turn actions and your emote (within reason) helps the flow of combat greatly. 


Swapping Weapons – You can draw OR stow one weapon, as a free action. If you wish to SWAP weapons on your turn (Put a weapon away AND draw a new one out), this will cost your standard action.

How Weapons, Armor, and Items work
Currently, Old Guard has implemented many of the items needed for combat into RPR runes. Below is a list of what items are and are NOT runes, and how to acquire them

RPR Runes: Options available in the “Runes” tab in Shift-R when the item for that rune is in your inventory

  • Armor (Gotten via the Armor Runes Kit. To be unarmored, unequip any armor rune)
  • Potions (Created by an Apothecary that has learned the Alchemy research)
  • Magical Items (Created by a Blacksmith that has learned the Arcane Smithing research, or by an Arcanist that has learned the Mystical Creations research)

Base Conan Items: An actual conan item that you place on your inventory hotbar and then select. 

  • Weapons
    • Martial Weapons: 2H Axe, 2H Mace, 2H Sword, 2H Spear(Added kit), Bow
    • Simple Weapons: Daggers, 1H Axe, 1H Mace, 1H Spear, 2H Spear(Basic kit), 1H Sword, Thrown 

Attack and Damage Rolls:

This is how your attack and damage rolls for physical attacks are calculated

  • Melee weapon and unarmed attacks rolls scale off Strength
    • Exceptions made for Finesse weapons: Javelin(If Simple weapons proficient), Whip, Daggers, Bow, Thrown Weapon, 1-Handed Sword
  • Ranged weapon rolls scale off Dexterity
    • Bow

How AC is calculated

AC is calculated based on the armor type you are wearing (Light/Medium/Heavy), and your Dexterity attribute. 

  • Unarmored: 10 AC + DEX
  • Light: 12 AC + DEX
  • Medium: 15 AC + DEX (Max of 2)
  • Heavy: 18 AC
  • Shield: 2 AC

 

    Ability/attack colours, and what they mean

    • Blue: Standard action. See below for options on what you can do with your standard action
    • Yellow: Part of a Standard Attack Action. Limited to 1 per Standard Attack Action.
    • Red: Part of a Standard Attack Action. No limit, other than your subclasses total # of attacks.
    • Orange: Bonus action.
    • Pink: Free action. Multiple free actions can be used, though read the text of the ability it is tied to, as additional conditions may apply before it can be used.

    Standard Attack Action

    In a Standard Attack Action, you may make as many Red or Yellow attacks as you have attacks for (See the table below for how many attacks your class/subclass gets. Read your subclass features as well, as some of them grant you additional attacks)

    Assuming 1 attack in your attack action:

    • 1 Yellow OR 1 Red

    Assuming 2 attacks in your attack action:

    • 1 Yellow AND 1 Red
    • 2 Reds

    Assuming 3 attacks in your attack action:

    • 1 Yellow AND 2 Reds
    • 3 Reds

    All ranged attacks/spells require a line of sight.

    Action Economy Breakdown:

    A typical turn gets 1 Standard Action, 1 Bonus Action, 1 Movement action, and any number of Free Actions:

    • Standard Action: One of these may be taken per turn:
      • Drink A potion
      • Dash (Move double your base movement speed)
      • Attempt a PvP Flee
      • Swap Weapons (Stow held weapon(s), and draw new weapon(s))
      • Wake someone who is sleeping
      • Attempt to break out of restraints
      • Blue ability (Typically a spell or Class/Race Feature. Only 1 leveled spell allowed per turn (Cantrips are not a leveled spell)
      • Standard Attack Action
        • Yellow and Red attacks each cost 1 attack action. You can only use 1 yellow in a standard attack action
        • Each subclass gets a specific number of attack actions that can be made in their Standard Attack Action, so check the table below for your subclass’ number of attacks. 
    • Bonus Action: One of these may be taken per turn
      • An orange ability is a Bonus action. (Typically a spell or a Class/Race feature)
    • Free Action: multiple of these may be taken per turn (Conditions apply)
      • A pink ability is a free action. Pinks typically have a condition that needs to be met before they can be activated (Such as a successful weapon attack, or an enemy moving within x tiles of you). Refer to your ability descriptions for clarity.
    • Movement Action
      • By default, you have 2 tiles of movement. Some races and subclasses modify your base movement.
      • If flying, you CANNOT fly higher than 1 tile off the ground
      • It takes 1/2 your movement action to recover from prone

    Example Turn:

     Conan the Fighter, now in close with their opponent, has 3 attacks in their standard attack action as a fighter. On their turn they attack with 1 Yellow and 2 Reds as their standard action, then Shield bash as a bonus action, then move back 2 as a movement action, and finally use a free action to activate a class feature ability.

     

    Conan the Wizard, having taken damage, uses their standard action to drink a healing potion, and then uses their bonus action to misty step away. They then use their movement action for 2 more tiles of movement, and finally end their turn by activating a class feature ability with their free action.

     

    Number of attack actions in a Standard Attack Action  (Note: Some subclasses have abilities that allow you to take EXTRA attack actions. The below table is used to describe what your subclass receives by default):

     

    Attacks in a Standard Attack Action, per class/subclass:

    • Barbarian – 2 attacks
    • Bard – 1 attack
      • College of Valor – 2 attacks
    • Cleric – 1 attack
    • Druid – 1 attack
      • Circle of the Moon – 2 attacks (In beast shape)
    • Fighter – 3 attacks
    • Monk – 2 attacks
    • Paladin – 2 attacks
    • Ranger – 2 attacks
    • Rogue – 1 attack
    • Sorcerer – 1 attack
    • Warlock – 1 attack
    • Wizard – 1 attack
      • Arcane Tradition of Bladesinging – 2 attacks

    Raid Rules

    Light ’em up!

    A raid must be cleared with an available admin in a ticket prior to a raid declaration being posted: All raids must have an uninvolved staff member present overseeing them to ensure rules are followed, as well as having the opposing party online to defend.

    A raid timer will be announced 30 minutes before the declaration state and considered an IC announcement only to the defending clan. They will have 30 minutes to IN CHARACTER, gain allies, and return to base. No warps are to be used, during this time. Including /home, one must physically travel to and from the raid location as an attacker or defender.

    When a raid declaration is made, all participants from an attacking clan – this includes their allies who are participating – must be present at their own base. They cannot call a raid whilst standing nearby, or garrisoned at an allies base.

    Rule 1

    No Raiding of the structures marked as ADMIN BUILDS

    Rule 2

    Do not grief: Raids must have a roleplay reason and an objective, you may not needlessly destroy anything but what’s necessary to accomplish the stated objective.

    Rule 3

    Combat Format:  Raids can be mechanical or dice.  Both parties have to agree for it to be Mech.

    Rule 4

    All Raids are Instanced: An Instanced Raid means that it is locked off until Consequences phase, per PvP rule #10. Attackers may NOT use Warps or /home for thirty minutes after the raid.

    Rule 5

    Proof of Knowledge: As a third party if you and your clan can prove that through RP means (screenshots, timestamps), you/your clan were made aware of a raid and asked to support the defender/attacker at the declaration, you/your clan may participate so long as you arrive within 10 minutes of intent per PvP Rule #10.

    Rule 6

    Fleeing: If the Defending Clan forgoes their right to defend their base, choosing to flee, the Attacking Party can request additional objectives from the overlooking admin. Ie. Methods of sending messages via destruction or looting. Fleeing follows standard PvP rules

    PvP Consequences

    That just ain’t fair… is it?

    Skirmish Consequences:  A Skirmish is essentially a brawl, a non-lethal competitive spar or fight, etc., one where you are not looking to break someone, but rather humiliate.

    Acceptable cons:  A non-life-threatening beating, loss of hair, broken finger etc., what is expected from a less serious fight.

    Full Consequences: If you wish to inflict a grievous injury (See below) abduct, enslave, mutilate, take a soul etc., those fall under Full Cons, and must coincide with what the person you’re roleplaying with consents to (if applicable). 

    Big Consequences Require Big Roleplay! If you are giving someone heavy consequences, it is a requirement that the preceding roleplay reflects that severity. “It’s just how my character does things” is not a valid reason for the first encounter PK of someone. If a consequence is given out without adequate roleplay, it will be retconned and the perpetrator reprimanded depending on the severity.

    Please refer to our injury system for more information on severity of injuries in general.

    Permadeath on first encounter

    The default rule regarding permadeath in Old Guard is that you can only attempt permadeath after two PvP encounters and sufficient roleplay. We encourage the use of the Death Save System, however, it is not required. If you feel you have a valid reason to permakill someone during the first PvP encounter, you must open a ticket before the perma and have the admins review and either deny or approve your request. Must have a lot of screen shot evidence to convince staff to allow it.

    Appeal Consequences

    If you do suffer heavy consequences and do not feel as though it was justified through RP, open a Help ticket. Ensure you have gathered screenshot evidence to back up your claim; without evidence, we do not have the facts necessary to make a solid judgment. 

    (If you do not have a snipping tool, hit the Start button + PrtSc for a screenshot.  —  These Screenshots MUST be from your computer.  Do NOT take photos of your computer with the chat.  We need clear screenshots.)

    A player cannot PK another player during DM events, or use DM events as an encounter for a PK without permission from at least one staff member, DM PKs will put the dead on a 30-day reroll cool down.

    Grievous Injury

    When a significant injury or the removal of a body part is dealt as a Full Con, this would be considered a grievous injury.

    To inflict this consequence, an ability called “Inflict Grievous Wound” in your RPR must be used on the one receiving the consequence.

    A grievous injury cannot be healed by any means for 24 hours, so any attempts to regrow a lost limb.

    For example, healing would be unsuccessful until 24 hours have passed,. You would need to rp having lost that limb for the 24 hour duration.

    Slavery and You

    If you have been captured and kept without RP for 30 minutes, you may pull the bracelet to leave the scene. We greatly encourage players to communicate with one another about their available times and come to some common ground.

    The captor is required to provide the captive with RP. If the captive is unhappy/unsatisfied with the RP, and not enjoying themselves at all. The captive should reach out and discuss this with their captor. If the captor is unwilling to work with said captive, then the captive is encouraged to open a ticket.

    In the end, captivity roleplay is intended to be an expansion of both parties’ stories, and the overarching tale the server writes. This rule really is just here to avoid captivity used to deny people roleplay, not negate valid antagonism.

    Consent Sheets

    Checking Consent Sheets is mandatory before giving consequences. Ignoring someone’s consent sheet or otherwise breaking this rule will result in immediate disciplinary action. Regardless of one’s consent sheet, a player always has the right to FTB a scene.  We have a consent sheet in-game via *Shift-R*. It is mandatory to fill it out after you’ve created your character.

    Do not coerce people into altering their consent sheet: If someone has answered no to either question on their consent sheet, you are not allowed in any way, shape, or form to attempt coercing them into accepting these cons by pressure.

    Mirrored Consent is a requirement on this server. Any Consequence you inflict on another player must be allowed on your own sheet.

    Stacking Consequences

    You cannot stack consequences from the same encounter. You cannot stack consequences from the same encounter without consent. If someone agrees to enslavement, for instance, you cannot PK them.  Same being that if you rob someone, or maim someone, you cannot PK them. Remember that consequences are a tool for driving a story, and under no circumstance should “my” story come before “anyone else’s” story. The only exception is if the victim consents to additional consequences.

    3rd Party Consequences

    In a scenario where X and Y are fighting, at the finale of the fight, consequences are to be dished out (If the victor decides to enforce cons.) This means the victor, and solely the victor can apply consequences. This means that a third party, who is in association with the victor, cannot apply consequences. Yet, this does not apply to bounties placed by another player ie. Capture, Kill, etc.

    Permadeath Reminder

    Permadeath is a very serious and very real consequence of your character’s actions on the Old Guard Server. It is not a consequence to be handed out lightly and should be utilized as a tool to create a powerful and immersive storytelling experience. Permadeath is only meant to be a means to further an IC story and all Permadeaths must be submitted in a ticket.

    DM’s can use heavy cons or kill players during a DM Event. There will be an announcement before the start of the DM event if the possibility of death applies. You may choose to leave the event if you do not wish to risk death. If not resurrected IC you will be placed on a 30 day cool down as per normal PK rules.

    Good Antag Death:

    The ‘Good Antag Death’ policy will make it so that if you play an antagonistic character that makes good story and is PK’d, you can have transfer your mastery to whatever new character you roll. To register for a Good Antag Death, ask for such in your PK ticket that you open when you’re killed. Reminder: Antagonistic does not mean ‘evil’, just that you drove conflict. If you die in the course of a conflict plot, you were someone’s antag, and would qualify for this policy.

    Things we will check:
    – The RP that led to your death
    – Ask your killer whether they felt you’d given good story
    – Utilize our own understanding of the RP going on, if appropriate

    This policy is meant to encourage antags to prioritize good story over playing solely to win. Playing a respectful and story-oriented antag is a hard thing to do, and many times goes without thanks or support. We hope to encourage antags of this caliber to step forward by lessening the time-cost of rolling a new character.

    Ticketing Permadeath

    Steps to take when Submitting a Permadeath Ticket

    The victim will be the one to submit the Permadeath Ticket

    1. Head down to the ticket-support and open up a DM Ticket
    2. Copy the form below and fill it out in the ticket:

    Permadeath Ticket Form:

    • Name of killer:
      (Killer Character name here)
    • Killer Discord:
      (Killer Discord Name – If you have it)
    • Name of victim:
      (Victim Character Name)
    • Victim Discord:
      (Victim Discord Name here)
    • Detailed explanation:
      (Describe what happened, and why)
    • Relevant screenshots:
      (Screenshots of the last emotes before the killing blow.)

    (If you do not have a snipping tool, hit the Start button + PrtSc for a screenshot.  —  These Screenshots MUST be from your computer.  Do NOT take photos of your computer with the chat.  We need clear screenshots.)

    COMMUNICATION IS KEY WITH ALL RP BUT ESPECIALLY in ANY PVP encounters, and very important in events leading to Permadeaths.

    Make sure that you are always talking with the other player whether or not you choose to force permadeath. Permadeath is a very serious and final thing. It can not be taken back and as such we ask that you try to find a compromise by other means before choosing to carry out permadeath.

    Resurrection:

    Resurrection follows normal reroll rules, and so resurrection cannot happen until 14 days after the character‘s death. If a character is resurrected, either before or after those 14 days, they will be put on your shelf and can be rerolled into once you‘re eligible for a reroll. the character would  ICly be ‘recovering‘ in that time, and unable to communicate until they wake up (The reroll is complete).
