Bear with me this is on my phone! OK so recently Ellis has taken to trying to kill people who have really gotten to him. He has used a gun for these purposes. However, because most people have death limits it's impossible to kill people with a gun or any other means. That's fine. I also have a death limit. My grievance is that it seems like it can take some of the joy out of the story. For instance, Joe Bob takes out a gun and threatens Suzy Q's life. Instead of begging for her life she is haughty and bold, driving Joe Bob to shoot. But of course his shot is not fatal because of limits. Suzie Q lives and later taunts him for poor aim and he rest of the village chime in. My issue isn't with the limit because we all have them for one reason or another. My point is that Suzie Q didn't fear death. We should all be playing as though our character has no idea they have a death limit. If Ellis has a gun to him and he is unarmed he will be scared and fight for his life. True, sometimes there are times when no matter what a person will shoot and of course will miss but I am wondering where the fear of death is? Where is the fear of consequences? Why would you taunt the aim of someone who tried to kill you? I get some have no fear of their own death but it becomes frustrating for people who are pursuing them and have to miss because the other person doesn't seem to fear the possibility of death. Ellis has been taunted by many for his "poor aim". There are many times he'll say that he wasn't aiming to kill (because he often just aims to harm but not kill) but other times he does and the other person doesn't die. Which is fine but then the near death should inflict fear enough that the person is afraid of them. I mean, if someone tried to kill you wouldn't you be afraid? Would you taunt their lack of aim? This seems especially true when we have limits (which is fine).  How can one be taunted for "bad aim" when they already was restricted to not dying oocly? It seems unfair.

Just some thoughts I'm throwing out there. This is not meaning any one person as I see it all over. I am not trying to offend or insult anyone. They are my thoughts and insights! Also be aware I am blunt so sometimes come off as harsh without meaning to. I am not trying to call people out or cast aspersions on anyone! This has been on my mind for a long time! Thank you.
