Location: Whats the use of have names if you lose all your friends. That's where I'm from.
If you are in a party and a party member dies, and you end up taking to hiding/invis to save your own hides therefore leaving whatever spawns you were fighting there, and you then raise your fallen party member, please try to refrain from attacking the spawns, ESPECIALLY if they are spellcasting spawns, primarily death magic.

I am saying this not only because of what happened last night with a group, but because many people may not realize that this happens until after the fact.

If a person is in the process of picking up their gear, and they get deathplanned in the process, this is what happens. Players corpse continues loading the items there on the player, but also their bags dump out, just like what happens on Avlis if the server resets/crashes before you get to your corpse. In this process of continuing to pick up the items, and the bags unloading, all the excess items that the player can't carry drops in the death travel area, which will require DM assistance in recovering. And as everyone knows, a DM isn't available all the time, and there is no guarentee of any return of lost items if that is the case.

So I ask nicely to please take into consideration your fallen party members in these cases, even with DM help, it can take well over an hour or more to get the player situated enough to continue on.

Thanks and have a nice day. :)

*big hugz to LP77*

Thanks for saving my butt.

Just like you posted, ALL of my items dumped out of my bags...AND they dumped in the Death travel area. Without a dm, you cannot get any of your items from that area. If the server crashes, your items will go POOF! It took me atleast an hour to get situated again.

:oops:

Also, make sure ALL the items are done unloading to the corpse before you raise them. Especially be carefull if you are coming over from Avlis, just because they are in their deathplane already does NOT mean they are finished unloading their items.

I would suggest asking them in a tell before raising.

Sorry again :oops: Thanks for the help LP77

Seriously folks, this is a pain for both the player you raise, as well as anyone else who helps out. Plus it means just that much longer your party has to wait to continue.
