NVFL vs Rulebreaks

Recommended Posts

"4.3 You shouldn't use defender or attacker rights in situations where it doesn't make in-character sense as it can be seen as rule play. In other words, obtaining kill rights alone does not give you explicit permission to use them any time you want and in all situations. Think about if using them to kill another character is viable in the current situation considering role play and In Character information.

Kill rights gained from any rule breaks (including but not limited to baiting, invalid initiation) are considered invalid and their use will be punished in the same way as if they were not obtained at all."

I was thinking over the rules that apply to NVFL and that affects how invalid kill could force a rulebreak. Easier to explain in rough examples that are purely thought exercises in the course of the rules and i would appreciate them to not be taken as strawmen but instead looked at through the rules in question.


Situation 1.

Man is running around a town when he is fired upon for no apparent reason, he runs inside a house and is followed by the shooter who attempt to kill him. He kills the shooter.

(The man is guity of a invalid kill and by the rules should be charged of RDM, if the man does not attempt to fight and survive he does not value his characters life and is guilty of NVFL.)


Situation 2.

Man is with a group of people and another group of equal size come up, one of his "friends" kills someone in the other group (lets say due to Def rights used correctly) this spurs a firefight and man kills someone in the other group.

(Situation 1 synopsis again + outwith that line of thinking does a valid use of def rights on a single person of a group give a valid initiation to either side)


The underlying question within this is what side does the staff fall on when a situation occurs that can be seen to be a rulebreak either way, and should someone who is not responsible for the actions of others be punished for that.
