A character's death is entirely voluntary on the player's part. So is killing another character for that matter. At least in the most recent game, the good guys rarely killed their opponents after beating them in the story mode... even when doing so would have made their lives much easier in the long run.
So there's no need to 'finish him' every time. Nor can anyone kill another character without their permission, even if they've won on a coin toss.
In fact, everything will be based on permissions. If you don't want your character to bleed, then they could only get roughed up without being cut.
If you are fine with your character losing a limb but you are not fine with them losing their eyesight for example... then another player can hack off an arm if they win but eye-gouging's out of the question.
Of course, I imagine there won't be any surprises between the two players whose characters are fighting. I mean, I've pretty much already talked to TheRaven about everything that could possibly happen in the current fight. It requires a bit of trust, especially if you are permitting someone else to pretty much maim your character... but that's why the permissions thing is on the sheet, and also I should hope that everyone communicates with one another wherever these interactions might occur.
But overall, considering the nature of the RP... if you're only into vanilla sex and no violence, you can still join this game... just don't be surprised when right next door in the RP someone is fellating and dismembering (pun intended) an opponent at the same time.
I don't know if we have anyone on the roster so far that
kinky, but it's a possibility.
