My thought would be, any RP moderator who makes a "you died" decision is abusing his authority by essentially godmodding, and I'd be looking for a new guild. I come from the school of thought that the player decides how he wants to handle a situation, and also how the story should affect him.Now of course this needs cooperation from all the players, to make sure there is no godmodding and no Mary Sue-ism. The chain is no stronger than the weakest link.

This. So much. Godmodding is not cool. I'm sure - in fact, I KNOW people pull this stuff on others, especially if they're in positions of given power, and such abuse just is not right. If your character's going to die, then it should be a decision made and discussed by you and the people leading the storyline or modding the RP. Only you should be able to agree to your character's ultimate demise.For instance, if the character in the article above did indeed die due to walking into Wrynn's throne room and getting charged with treason, then it would be more than likely the player is good with it, because he helped to make or at least agreed to the decision. He might find it emotionally difficult, but sometimes death is what makes a good story, and the best storytellers know when to kill a character off. If he didn't get to make the decision that his character would be walking to his doom, then -I- would consider that Godmodding, and there would be ... Discussions.
