Jul 9th 2007 5:03PM Leading Troll, "They can take our TEMPER! But they can never take... OUR FREEEEDOOOOM!"
Nov 28th 2006 2:34PM When I was a GM for Everquest this happened every once in a while. Whether we thought it was fake or real the policy was that if we had proof or Verification such as an emailed Threat or one captured online we would try to locate the Players information and contact local authorities about the Suicide Threat.
One I recall clearly was a younger player who had been denied a character restore for a deleted character only to then claim he was going to kill himself if we didnt restore him. This was in Direct Tells to a GameMaster and from what the Local Authorities told us after they arrived at his house was that his Mother was Furious with him. And they thanked us for the report. Another I recall happening was a player that had the police called to there house was actually taken for a 24 hour suicide watch.
Its always better to be safe than Sorry.
