thanks but if there are no safeguards to prevent abuse of the arrest privilege, it could be detrimental to the game. What if someone has an OOC issue with the arrested player, and doesnt execute him? With the multi rules, it would be wrong to make another character while the arrested character was still alive. And how many people have more than one paid email address to make a second character?
The safeguard is the ability to drop one's character after three weeks.. as has already been pointed out a few posts up. That is, in fact, the reason that option was implemented; to prevent characters being permanently arrested and therefore unable to ever play again.
You don't need another e-mail address. This functions the same way as death. Once your wait time is up, you log back into your existing account and use the 'Create New Character' link at your character portrait.
