RPG Role playing Games

Topic: "World Rule" usage in online role playing games.
First of all the term "World Rule" needs to be defined:
WORLD RULE: During the course of time that a player plays an online role playing rpg games, any precedence established regarding any actions, behaviors or conditions can be defined as a "world rule" for that rpg world. For example: If during a free online role playing games, the player teams up with a witch who can turn people into toads by saying the word "Kazapo'rpg!" and does so during the rpg adventure game (for example she might turn an evil rpg prince into a toad) - then a World Rule has been created. By "world rule has been created", I mean that it is very reasonable for the rpg role player to believe that in that particular imaginary rpg world that he is playing in at that particular moment, the following online role playing World Rule applies: "The witch can turn people into toads by saying 'Kazapo'rpg!'."
In a good free online role playing rpg games, World Rules are respected and are rarely violated. Unacceptible violations in online role playing games can cause a great deal of confution and fustration for the rpg player.
An unacceptible violation of the World Rule in the example would be if, later in the free online rpg game, the player and the whitch are attacked by thugs - the whitch defends herself by punching and kicking the guards and is then captured. If that was to happen, the rpg player playing the role playing games is likely to think: "What the heck?! Why didn't the stupid whitch say "Kazapo'rpg!" and turn the guards into toads?!?!?" If the rpg games writer of the free game to play online rpg adventure wanted to have the witch be be captured for some reason, he should have had one of the guards surprize the whitch by pitching a chunk of dirt at the which's mouth that then clogged it up so that she could not speak. Then, when captured, the rpg role playing games guards might have tied and gagged the whitch. That way the rpg "World Rule" would not have been violated during the course of the free games to play online for free online role playing games. Another way the writter could have solved the problem would be to have the guards whare magic madalions (given to them by the evil prince, let's say) that prevents the online role playing rpg games witch from using her "toad turning" magic on them.
