If a character dies owning stocks, what happens to them? Also can stocks be assigned similarly to items, ships, NPCs, and other entities within the game? If so what affect does this have while alive or upon death?
The reason for my question is that one of the investors OF "Emerald Planetary Development Fund" apparently died, and after his death sent me a DM requesting his shares be assigned to another character. Since the request was made from beyond the grave, I do not believe it is a valid request. It does leave me to decide what does happen to his shares. And what to do in the future, are there ways a player can "Safeguard" his/her shares from loose at death.
For instance were I to engage in a very hazardous mission I might assign my self as pilot/operator of all entities I'm taking with me, and assign my faction or partner as commander/manager of all of my other belongings. If I die, then I've decided ahead of time what happens to my stuff. Is this within the spirit of the rules?
