Wasn't sure if this is the proper place to put this, though I assume it is... so here is my question. But first, a bit of background: The last time I even remotely attempted to RP was at RPG [Role play gateway] and for all its flaws, it has a pretty decent RP set up, I admit. However, one thing that kind of confused me a bit was [well a lot of stuff about there confused me but that isn't the point] that the GM in the one RP I joined put up the following disclaimer: "If you do not want your characters maimed, killed, hurt, kidnapped, etc. do not use them in this RP! Instead create a minor character which you do not mind being bashed up." To me, this sent the message of: If your character gets beaten up and bruised or potentially killed in one roleplay... it carries said effects into the next roleplay you put it in. Now, RPG seems to have a different operational means when it comes to RP, and I haven't ever asked any of the mods about that, but the general consensus by the way people were talking, is the summation I had come to before. Do you guys carry that sort of unspoken rule here, or is that just a bunch of pucky?
