will soul binding be a method of letting the players go through some process to be able to retain certain items apon death?

Game mechanics aren't copyrightable.

What concept? "A magic mod using blood"?

I didn't think you were talking about that because that was what I meant when I said "a game mechanic". Making an item not lost on death is a game mechanic.

If by soulbinding you mean having items that you don't lose when you die, that is probably not copyrightable. If you are worried about the name, you can call it something else.

I suppose eating food to restore hunger is copyrightable too then, if something as generic as keeping items is copyrightable.

What country's copyright laws are you considering?

You mentioned patents in the US, but it's unlikely that a modder would file a patent for such a game mechanic, given the costs. There are also originality criteria in granting a patent and it isn't clear to me that "soulbinding" is original enough. You could consider some MMOs with item-keeping mechanics, like the prayer in Runescape, or neurobound items in Star Sonata, to be prior art. Another criterion is whether an innovation would be "obvious" to somebody in the field. Soulbinding seems fairly obvious, given the goal of allowing the player to keep items on death within a magic mod.

Different originality criteria exist for copyright enforcement in the US, but as you implied, game mechanics are not copyrightable here.

Why'd you delete this?
What is SCP-055 again? I forgot.
