When a wiz restores a player, that is a decision that grants an instantaneous boon to the mortal. The points are added, and thats the end. The minute that player goes north again with his new points, he's no different to how he was before. The restore doesn't imply some kind "wiz protection" for the mortal's future sets, unless the wiz has specifically announced that this is the case. What you said sort of implies that its wrong to "undo" a wiz decision, but I think thats misleading because the wiz did not decide that the player shouldn't die, he merely decided that he should be given some points. If the wiz had shouted "Please do not attack Jamesbond" and someone then killed him, then I could see your point. I guess what I'm trying to say is that what I did was entirely within the confines of: game mechanics, rules, and wiz-imposed restrictions at the time. And in fact what I did was indirectly for vengeance of Leak's death, because I was simply getting back the kill that had already been made. Anyway, having posted this much makes me feel like I'm taking this as seriously as I said people shouldn't! I don't mean to give that impression: ultimately I see all of last night's events (including killing leak) as just part of the game, and not something that should be ruining people's friendships. It IS a combat-oriented game, and if you don't go north with the expectation that you'll probably die at some point, then you're just setting yourself up for feeling upset when it does happen. There was nobody in last night's game that I don't consider myself friendly with, so its a shame if anyone did take things personally. I'm going to email Jamesbond later and hopefully resolve this.
