RCRP Rules said:
The reason this rule was put in place is the prevent people ALWAYS killing the victim of a robbery once it is over. Robbers often do this so that the victim will loose all memory of what happened due to a player kill or character kill.
In real life, the vast majority of robberies DO NOT end with the victim being killed. By not killing a robbery victim, they are able to report the robbery to the police who can then investigate the incident. However if the victim is always killed, they are unable to do so which removes a lot of potential RP from the server. If the victim is killed, that's the end of that. There's practically no hope of their robber and killer being caught which isn't really fair.
In the real world, there are a lot of people who are perfectly happy to rob someone, perhaps even hurt them but wouldn't dream of murdering someone. Being a game largely based on crime and violence with no life changing consequences if you are caught by the police, the majority of RCRP players are ice cold killers who wouldn't think twice before pulling the trigger.
So to cut a long story short, this rule is for the welfare of the server, it creates a more realistic environment, more in depth in character situations and prevent robber killing their victims for no reason other than to wipe their memory which is ultimately powergaming.
There are however exceptions to this rule. If someone is being robbed and the robber has a good in character reason to kill their victim, whether it be a result of something the victim did during the robbery or during a previous incident, the robber is more than welcome to kill them. Reasons like "He called me a nigger" or "he dented my car" are pretty pathetic reasons to take someone's life. A good in character reason would be if they killed somebody close to you, attempted to kill you. in other words something big that actually gives the robber a good reason to kill the victim.
If there is anything about rule 15 you still don't understand, feel free to post questions.
