ANGST is a form of roleplay involving extreme emotional or physical situations that the characters may face. This might range from heated arguments and physical conflict due to an IC disagreement, graphic violence or torture if a character is captured as a spy or a POW. It may also include more extreme forms roleplay. If you become engaged in roleplay that goes beyond what you feel you can tolerate or enjoy, simple tell the other characters involved and discuss alternate means of resolving the incident. If you are unable to do so, page a wizard for assistance or intervention.
COMBAT means exactly what it sounds like. Keep in mind that even though your character is set !COMBAT_OK, that doesn't mean you can't be harmed. There are no immortal characters on WNOHGB. What fun would that be?
PK_OK indicates whether or not you wish to allow your character to be killed in IC roleplay. Players that choose to negate this flag (!PK_OK) must keep in mind that there are situations that a character might encounter where survival is not guaranteed. The staff of WNOHGB will make reasonable attempts to preserve the life of characters who are !PK_OK, but some encounters only have one possible outcome. IE. A character who is in the SFMC and `dies' in combat might be found by a search and rescue team and resuscitated, then required to spend some time in the hospital or rehab. A character that is surrounded by armed men and tries to fight his way free thinking his !PK_OK will save him is sadly mistaken.
