PvP deathtraps

"...while the GMs won’t guarantee a PC will survive, we’re generally rooting for the PCs to come back another day and would probably rule that ties go to the defender."

I should have added the above thought to my post as well for clarity. I, too, find it very genre shattering for folks to do coldly calculated fratricide. As a GM, I'll advise against such for reasons both in and out of game.

While passions can push a PC over the edge, I don't find heroic drama in successful deathtraps —I do find it in amazing escapes.
