    [Quitting, restarting and restoring are all suicidal, unless you can safely save.]

    Check quitting the game (this is the permadeath check quitting rule):
        consider the safe saving allowed rules;
        if rule failed:
            consider the suicide rules;
            if rule succeeded:
                try fast quitting;
            if rule failed:
                stop the action.

    Check restarting the game (this is the permadeath check restarting rule):
        consider the safe saving allowed rules;
        if rule failed:
            consider the suicide rules;
            if rule failed:
                stop the action.
        
    Check restoring the game (this is the permadeath check restoring rule):
        consider the safe saving allowed rules;
        if rule failed:
            consider the suicide rules;
            if rule failed:
                stop the action.

    The suicide rules are a rulebook.

    A suicide rule (this is the standard suicide rule):
        say "Do you wish to commit suicide? (You will [bold type]not[roman type] be able to continue with this character, even if you have saved the game earlier.) ";
        if player consents:
            permanently kill the player;
            rule succeeds;
        otherwise:
            rule fails.

    Fast quitting is an action out of world.

    Carry out fast quitting (this is the standard carry out fast quitting rule):
        immediately end the game.
            
    To immediately end the game: (- quit; -).
