well I don't really want to get into that topic, and there are already plenty of open topics about that already.
we can still talk about rping deaths in a war though.

however, i did chose it because it was mentioned before, could have taken other examples, too.
insects attacking the gate, you die as asral cleric..does that mean you stay off the fight and let arborea fall?
sathonites going for elvandar, you as tanielite...
dying deep in a mine on thursday evening losing all your stuff, is reattacking a faux-pas?
sometimes you need to play something else than the groan, tremble and staying off the battle, which doesnt mean it isnt a role you still play
No offence taken, I just wanted to express some of my feelings.
I think that if you die defending the Asralite keep or Arborea, you should not go back into battle to fight the insects again.
I think that if you die defending Elvandar from Sathonites, you should definitely not go back into battle to fight those players again.
Dying deep in a mine on Thursday is something quite crappy. It also complicates things. Firstly you know OOC that your items will disappear. So you make an IC decision to go to the bottom of the mine to get your stuff back. The fact that items disappear is an OOC thing, ideally there would not have to be reboots or reboots wouldn't eat custom items or something. You should also not be going down deep into a mine on a thursday before reboot in case you do die, or suffer the grave consequences.
I think no matter how rough and tough you think you character is, death should still be roleplayed. The fact that you can die and come back to life in Geas is simply a convenience for the player and shouldn't be taken for granted OOC or IC.
If you are bested by anyone, I feel like it is your duty as a player to try your best to suck it up and roleplay defeat. It sucks for everyone, Mazar isn't special, Luminier isn't special.
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.
