Working Title: MMORPG Story Rules: From YKTTW

# Every NPC that has a perpetual counterpart in the game world and is part of the plot is immune to death or otherwise being unable to return to said location. Another solution is to make it so the PCs are incapable of returning to their location outside of cutscenes, but this is rare due to The Law of Conservation of Detail.

fleb: I have no idea what this is saying. It's like reading a foreign language. I made an educated guess based on the phrases "NPC" and "immune to death" and rewrote from there.
Kilyle: Never mind previous comment that was here; I found the trope It's Up to You, and I put a note to this effect on the main page.
