I'm looking for an answer to a question that I have asked various imms
over the last while, but none can tell me what the rule is. This is
regarding permaing/deleting a character, and creating a character again
with the same name. I'm curious as to whether any one persons dealings
with this character will be considered crossplaying, if all associations
fromthe previous perma'd character are kept. Lets clarify:
PlayerA is pkill enabled and verbally harasses and makes an idiot out
of his/her self. PlayerA then perma's, remakes with the same name and
decides to become pkill enabled again. If PlayerB was at the brunt of
some of this harassment (even if it was IC harassment), and PlayerB
decides to kill PlayerA based on this past experience with PlayerA,
would that constitute crossplaying?
This might be in the rules somewhere, but I have yet to find it. And even
if it is in the rules, it seems that more than 1 immort is confused about
the answer to this question. I'd like to hear a definate rule for this

Considering how many pkillers remake, I'd say it's impossible
not to take past experiences into consideration, even when dealing with
a new incarnation of the same character--a jerk who was once a sniper
that's now a mage is still a jerk. If that's illegal, oh well. Not much
to do in that case except to forbid remakes, which I can't see happening.

Well if its that cut and dry, I don't see why an imm can't answer it.

I'd have to agree here.. if you use the same name as before
you are responsible for all the actions of yourself before.
if there is something wrong with this then there are
a massive amount of people out there crossplaying
after they ditched and reincarnated with a 'better' version..

You'd have to be treated as the same person, many will use the
same name, same desc, same RP, some may not even know they perma'd.

I always believed that once you perma...it wipes your slate clean?
just a poke in the dark here :P

Well, in response to Tempus. Say I make a character, enable, level up,
and go on a killing spree, and I wind up permaing one of your clanmates
looting the others and generally making a nuisance of myself. I then perma
and come back with the same name, same RP, all that jazz. I once again
enable and level up, and this time I want to join your clan. Can
you honestly say that you'd look at me and think "well, he permad, so
I guess the slate is clean." Life just doesn't work that way :)

if charB acts just like charA under the same name and player, and
refers to himself as being both charA and charB, charA = charB.
my opinion, anyway.
