6. Relashionship between characters
Karma For killing defenceless characters a character gets negative karma points, the the character's status is changed into PK (Player Killer), its nickname is displayed in dark red colour (too little karma) or inbright red colour (much karma). The more negative karma, the longer a character stays in PK status. Karma points are increased when killing mobs or when losing XP at death. As it's impossible to lose level at death (the percentage, when it reaches 0.00% at the current level, is not changed anymore), karma doesn't increase. Characters in PK status don't gain XP when killing mobs, so it's impossible to lose karma by killing mobs and dying. A character with 0.00% XP can decrease their karma only by killing mobs of the corresponding level.

If any character kills a PK character, the former gets positive karma points. If any character kills a PK character, the former gets positive karma points. If a character has positive karma, it increases over time.
