What if your PC died?

What Would You Do if Your PC Died?


Mizahar is a dangerous place.

We've all heard that. It's kind of ingrained into our heads. But how many of us have ever experienced that danger first hand. How many of us have lost a character. And I don't mean something we knew were coming. Many people kill off their PCs when they get bored of them. But how many of us have truly lost a PC to something we couldn't control.

At any time one PC could murder another. At any time a mod could kill a foolish PC who dared ventured into the wilds unprepared. But how often does this actually happen? How dangerous is this world, really?

What would you do if your PC died? If they were taken from you, not because you asked for it, not because you decided to join a dangerous thread, but because you made a mistake and a mod took you out, or a PC unexpectedly killed you.

What would you do if your PC was taken from you, unexpectedly and without warning?

I have planned for this, actually. I created a character obsessed with an impossible goal. (which is driving him to depression lately)

This leaves him an easy out if I wish to turn him into a ghost. I'd rather that didn't happen of course, I made him human because I wanted to play a human. But I've spent so much time on him, I feel it would be a waste to start completely over.

Of course, If by moderator intervention somehow, that can't happen, I suppose I'll just try again. Maybe branch out and try a Charodae, or focus on my alt that I never use, Donovan.

I really, really want Victor to die because of some stupid misstep or mistimed word that results in him falling and breaking his neck or getting squished by an annoyed god. If a mod tried to give me an honorable, catastrophic death, there might be a hole left in my miserable little heart. But if I could laugh at him in his last hour, his life will have been well worth writing.

As for my alts, they're far less foolish and therefore less likely to put themselves in a predicament where they could be killed, or pass on. I like to think I wouldn't mourn.

How does that make you feel?

I'd probably be a complete wreck for a length of time if Xel died, Nayana not so much since I have yet to become attached to her. Eventually I would accept he was dead, and there would be a period of anger after the sadness and some denial probably, but acceptance will someday appear. I do not think I would RP the same anymore though since Xel is probably going to be my favorite character to RP as, period. If he died without me wanting it to happen I feel like I might just lose my 'zeal' for RPing...

It happened to one of mine. Then she was brought back. It was epic and scary and she was forever changed. PCs that have died don't fear death. They don't really worry about death at all. I think its the same with PCs that are really in touch with their past lives... if they were and fully consious of who and what they were... say like the Eths.. they know its a state change and nothing more.

If I lost one, I'd bring them right back. Ghosts... Kelvics... Sira still needs a player for her baby!

What if your PC died?

Postby Shepherd on March 11th, 2012, 8:59 pm

I honestly want to see more players killed (even if they are my own). I know Bina and Dusk have decent kill counts, but I want to see more deaths. If Krivak died, that would simply be the end of his tale for me. If Liandra died, she'd probably come back as an Eth. If Alderache died, I had some strange musing of making chained ghosts since he's an Akalak and has two souls. Devero, I don't know, maybe I'll take over as one of his children he will sire (from Elhaym of course. Symenestra Triplets for the win) And I don't know my pycon well enough to have an idea on her.
