One advantage here is that it gives players a chance to fight with
consequences besides outright death. After considering the different
attitudes people have when playing muds vs. tradewars, I came to the
conclusion that this is probably one reason why people take PK deaths so
seriously in muds. That, actually, was a big part of what motivated me
to consider an injury system.
Conspiracy theorists mistakenly assume others think before acting.
