Perma-death/Maiming (Rules)

From Barbarians of Gor

In our experience, FORCING a player to take a perma-death (or to role-play with a character negating effect such as maiming) is tantamount to the player either rage quitting or being banned. Consequently, we are not going to put non-consensual perma-death into the rules. Instead, we will simple handle it as admins with the player directly. If a multi-session role-play devolves to such an extent that the only solution appears to be the perma-death of another character, please open a discord ticket and reach out BEFORE any death-scene role-play.

The approval of permanent-death or character maiming requires Admin intervention. It is our intention that the following conditions are present before such an approval is given.
  1. The player was fully aware that the possible consequence of their action is death.
  2. All other Gorean consequences have been explored.
  3. Significant, multi-session role-play has happened.
Examples of Maiming
Loss of a limb, hamstringing, significant cosmetic disfigurement such as facial burn scars, loss of teeth. Branding is not considered maiming.
The process
  • If you intend to kill a player you should open a ticket for moderation and let us know why. We will probably pull the other player into the discussion.
  • If you don't do this, and it "just happened", we are not likely to approve a permanent-death, so do it before hand.
  • Once we are sure all the conditions have been met we will approve the permanent-death.
At this time we do not have assassination rules for the server and will not be accepting assassinations as valid cause for perma-death.

  • PvP Combat (Rules) - As of Season 3 we are only a "RP before PvP" server, read the rules.
  • Capture (Rules) - You've been captured? What are your RP rights? How long can it last, how do you escape?
  • How to Capture - Capture in our game has mechanical functionality that you are expected to use, read this guide on the mechanics, how to set them up and how to use them.
  • Mechanical Death - What does it mean if you die a mechanical death, is your character dead? Do you need to recreate your character?
  • Perma-death/Maiming (Rules) - Your character can not be killed or maimed in an unplayable way without Admin agreement. See how this works.
  • Stealing (Rules) - There are limits on what you can take after PvP. Otherwise, mechnical stealing from containers is disallowed. You may role-play stealing as long as you leave a note/clue.
  • Sieging (Rules) - The storyline has developed to the point where our basic PvP Combat rules don't work? Learn how to start this process.
