Character deaths happen. Sometimes these events may be unexpected and abrupt, and in the case of a long-played or favorite character, character death can be pretty jarring. Players should remember that in a game centered on interactions and shared story-telling, where supernatural threats can strike without warning, IC actions can and will lead IC consequences. In some cases these consequences can end in a PC death. Players should also remember that some concepts are more at risk than others, and that by playing a high risk concept they should be prepared to say goodbye to the PC.

  • If a player feels that their PC is being unjustly attacked, they should immediately ask for a time stop, log the scene and contact staff to have the log reviewed before PCs move forward.
  • Those wishing to have the PK reviewed should look here.
