characters have linkless
protection: if your link
you soon become invulnerable until you reconnect. However, this feature is
sometimes abused by players deliberately dropping
to avoid death.
The NOVOID flag prevents this, by removing your linkless protection against
other players if you have recently met (or seen, or scried, or heard…) a
member of an enemy race.
While you have novoid, you can
rent at an inn normally: it only
affects your vulnerability while you are linkless. Novoid does NOT determine if
you are getting a mob- or a pk-death should you
Of course, if you are already linkless, you cannot gain a novoid flag.
