A lot of questions have been popping up, and whilst there's nothing wrong with that, it'd be easier for others to find the answers if there were
one place specifically for questions and answers. A lot of folks are doing research conversations too, so I'll give it a while for some things to
become known on this FAQ thread. We can assume the following are common knowledge unless specifically stated otherwise.


The formal thread on this can be found here:

F A Q

- Can people cry?

"Yes, they can still cry."

- What about Vyres? What if they die, and what about their feeding? Can they still be created?
"
They don't die, nor heal, same as others. No longer need blood either. They can indeed still be created but there is no bloodlust for the time being."

- People don't need to eat anymore, but can they still? Same for drinking?
"They can eat, and process it as they would, but they don't need to. They don't get hungry nor need it but sometimes people like to eat or drink for socialising and whatever anyway. On that note, you can get intoxicated still."


-What if you bleed out?
"You can bleed out but still just be alive like you didn't need it anyway. You'd get grossly pale, though. All the effects of bloodloss but you just don't die. And remain conscious."

-Can you still feel pain? Are you in constant agony?
"Generally speaking injuries still feel pain for something up to 12-24 hours IC and then it fades to a dull ache."

-What if a character is pregnant?
"Pregnant women remain that way for the duration of the campaign. They will not experience the growth (or birth) of their child in this stasis."

-What if you burn something to ashes?
- This is a research conversation. It has not yet came up in roleplay. -

-What about animals, and plantlife, and etc?
"Everything else goes on as normal. It is the people with souls that are affected here, not animals and not plants. So yes, animals can still die."

-Does blood still clot?
"In a way, yes, in the 12-24 hour period, though this matters not if it is a scratch or grevious wound. It does not heal, but slowly stops bleeding."

I know you don't get tired but does muscle fatigue still exist the way it normally does, I mean, when your muscles hurt it's because (correct me if I'm wrong) they are tearing and like healing...but if you can't heal, are you just always sore?

Any pain fades within 12-14hours. So if you get muscle fatigue, you'll just not notice it and continue on

I’m telling you guys, when this is all over, half of us will just keel over and drop dead from the cumulative effects of our injuries and the stopping of our biological processes.

Under the assumption that wounds will still be around. We still don't know entirely what Elz may have in store for us, it is a possibility our wounds could disappear through one way or another. For example, the sisterhood may heal those who are in search of aid if we end up ending the stasis so that they are not flooded with work reviving.


note: there's a serious missed opportunity with the shalherana blessed meeting with the sisterhood like some sort of ally or respected conveyor of the god whose powers they harness

I assume this goes for damage gained whilst roleplay right? I mean I’m currently in the sorrows, where I’m good at being damaged so hence I’m wondering...

Yeah, all of the Sorrows damage is considered OOC as are deaths by MC mechanics. Its purely to do with damage gained via Roleplay. Don't worry : )
