PvP between characters should be the result of Role play. A character will not just walk up to another character and attack him for no reason. Many towns have laws, and characters are smart enough to realise that breaking the laws of a town will get them locked up.

PvP should have terms agreed upon in an OOC format by all parties involved before hand to avoid any confusion, or ill feelings.

If a PvP situation does arise, then challenge the other character in game. If the player accepts, then come to terms of the PvP challenge. If the player refuses the PvP, then it is dead. Do not follow or harass the character and attempt to goad him/her into a fight. Heated banter after the rejection is alright, as long as it does not cross the line. Example: an evil fighter challenges a nuetral wizard, and the wizard refuses the fight. The fighter could then spurn his heart by calling him weak or scared, but not follow him to another transition for the purpose of getting him to fight. As well, do not reject the PvP challenge, and then follow the challenger out of the area and attack him.

You must, before attacking in any form; set your opponent to hostile. Failure to do this will result in sanctions against the offending character.

Using potions and kits in PvP is not a measure of the characters skills or abilities, but rather who can spam the button of heals faster.
Therefore using potions in PvP is prohibited, healing can only come from a spell cast by a cleric.

PvP Death
Sooner or later, a character will die as a result of PvP. Being raised after the duel is a courtesy, and not a requirement.  Divine Blessings or scrolls may be used in an OOC format only after the battle is concluded.

Should you die in PvP, and are forced to respawn, then please do not return to the area of the fight to continue the debate. If you are given an OOC raise, role play the defeat, and leave the area.

If you are raised IC by clerical means, then you are still defeated, but need not leave the area, and may continue to Role play, yet are prohibited from further PvP.

In death, the character is lying on the ground in a pool of blood. Please do not speak in character after your hit points reach -11. Unless your character is known as an undead, there should be no reason for it. A few OOC comments are permitable.

All Assassin bounties must be posted on the forum and approved by a DM, before they can be pursued In Game.

If a bounty is posted on a character, and an assassin takes up the bounty, then the assassin is free to attack as he sees fit.

Assassinations have an exception to Healing in PvP.  If the Assassin uses Hide in Plain Sight to vanish and thus break off the fight for a moment, both characters involved may heal using kits or potions.  Hide in Plain Sight is limited to a use of three (3) times during a battle, so as to prevent abuse of this feat.  

If the assassin is charged with retrieving a certain item from your character, and you have the item on you, then hand it over.  Don't be a jerk about it.

Non PvP characters.
If your character is not made for PvP, then in the description of the character at creation, place a notice that your Character is not intended for PvP. However, do not use this as an excuse for the character to be insulting and beligerent, and then hide behind this should someone wish to press PvP. If you run your mouth and make threats, and get beat down for it, you did it to yourself.

If you are challenged for PvP, politely send an OOC tell or message that your character is not intended for PvP purposes.

Again, the assassin is the exception to this rule. Even though a character may be non PvP, they may still get involved in Role Play scenarios that get them noticed, and marked for elimination.

If there are any questions or comments or suggestions, please direct them to a PM to a member of the DM staff
