• A player who dodges attacks that their character wouldn't otherwise be able to dodge.
  • A player who shrugs off damage that their character wouldn't otherwise be able to resist.
  • A player who does things that his/her character cannot do or is not listed in his/her +traits or +sheet.

You have to ask yourself, "Is it really worth me being in a combat scene? Is it worth the headache I'm going to cause others because of my constant dodging, taking no damage, or resisting things that would kill me?"

Staff's answer is "No.". If you're not willing to adhere to ICA=ICC (in character actions equal in character consequences), then many of the players as well as Staff are not interested in role playing with you.

Consider the following;

  1. If you are a non skilled combatant facing a combatant that is highly skilled, then there is a high chance of you losing the combat regardless of powers.
  2. If you have a weakness that can result in loss of life or limb and that's used against you, then you're probably going to lose life or limb.
  3. If you do not have armor/protection or low endurance/health (hit points), you can be hurt severely.
  4. Check your +traits and your opponent's +traits. If you see your opponent's values are much higher than yours, expect to lose in combat.

No one likes role playing with a twink. It's a waste of their time and it makes the entire scene pointless.

Therefore, if you find that you cannot adhere to your +traits, and you have the urge to dodge attacks that you shouldn't be able to dodge because you think your character is untouchable/unstoppable, then you might want to stay home and stick to social role play.

We're not suggesting ICA=ICC=Character Death Always. We're not promoting Character Killing/Death. We're promoting fair role play for everyone.

In closing, there's one more thing to ponder; when your character is injured they get to hang out in the med-bay and 'oh my god - owie!' role play. If the character dies, think of all the people that will come to the character's funeral and toss roses on your grave.
