Conditional immortality is a term used to describe the rules governing the life and death of Sburb players who have ascended to the god tiers. The basic principles are first described by Doc Scratch in with Rose Lalonde. He states that a god tier player is immortal, but that this immortality is conditional. A god tier player "will live forever, unless killed". When a god tier player is killed, they will revive unless their death is judged either "Heroic" or "Just".
The revival process is not instantaneous, but it is unclear exactly how long the delay is, whether it varies, or why there is a delay at all, given that the judgment appears to be made almost as soon as the death occurs.
In the A1 trolls' session, Meenah Peixes made intentional use of the delay to avert revival, by right before the session was scratched. This was timed such that the god tier players among them (Meenah included) would not have time to revive before the scratch activated, thus allowing them to persist as ghosts in the dream bubbles rather than being erased with the session.

What's new on the MSPA Wiki
A news post of moderate length, fun to read as always, has been added to the site. A6A6A5 is actually done, but it's so completely awesome that Hussie thinks we can't handle it yet, especially if it'd leave us hanging until the next pages after it come out in three months.
Speaking of which, the rest of the story, as previously mentioned, has been written in its entirety, Hussie simply needs to start drawing the panels. That, on top of responsibilities relating to the development and production of Hiveswap, means he needs to take quite the break to catch up. So when can we expect the comic to return? 4/13, naturally. Until then, have fun being productive!
A brief news post has been added to the website: due to the combination of previously laid out updates, A6A6I4 will end on January 19th, as opposed to the initially planned January 26th. Looking forward, Hussie has stated that he has mostly written everything that comes after that, but he's still working on it, as he has not yet begun drawing. This means we will almost certainly be seeing a pause after the 19th, but it's currently unclear how long that will be.
Sadly, the new MWF schedule of Homestuck precluded there being an update on New Year's Day itself. As such, anyone who was hoping for the customary event of some form of ball drop in the comic is doubtless disappointed.
You could say... Hussie dropped the ball there. HE HE HE.
As revealed in a new Kickstarter update, the project formerly known as the Homestuck Adventure Game has received a title: Hiveswap. The game will tell the story of a human girl who is sent to Alternia and must find a way to get back to Earth. Hiveswap's development has been moved over to a newly-formed What Pumpkin game studio and, once completed, it will be released as an episodic title likely consisting of four installments.
Unquestionably the most important Flash page since [S] Cascade, as is only appropriate to being released on the anniversary of it. Go and watch it. Now.
The next update will be on November 1st.
