DEATH AND DYING - Aetolia Online Help

5.10 DEATH AND DYING

Death in Aetolia is not a permanent thing. Though it does cause you to  
lose some of your hard-earned experience, it isn't something to overly  
panic about. There are multiple methods of returning to life.           

For Non-Undead Characters
----------------------------------

When you die, you will immediately lose a small percentage of your total
experience and be transported to the Plane of Souls, realm of the Under 
King. There are multiple methods of returning to life, but the simplest 
way is to APPROACH MIRROR while in the halls of the Under King.         

When you have left the halls of the Under King, you will find yourself  
at a location called Outside the Cave.          

For Vampire Characters
----------------------
When you die, you will immediately lose a small percentage of your total
experience and be turned into an untouchable mist at the location you
died in. To regenerate your body, move your mistform to a safe place and
meld with the earth by using EARTHMELD. When your body is fully
regenerated, you can RISE back up.

If, for some reason, you find yourself stuck while in mistform, you can
DIFFUSE MIST to transport to a safe location.

For Undead Characters
----------------------------

When you die, you will immediately lose a small percentage of your total
experience and float in a state between life and death. To allow your 
body to repair itself naturally, you must REFORM BODY while still in 
this state. 

During this time you will experience a myriad of dreams until your 
undead body has completely reformed. When you have recovered, you will
find yourself at a location called The Earthen Font.


The thing to keep in the forefront of your mind when you die is that as 
long as you know why you died, and as long as you learn something from  
the death, it was worthwhile. Experience in gaming terms is lost, but it
can just be gained back. Knowledge on the other hand, is priceless, and 
knowledge of your skills and the game is the single most important      
element to success.
