Is it slightly disturbing that the MMO community has integrated and accepted the phrase "corpse run
" without batting an eye at this point? Corpse runs are very much on the mind
of Brad McQuaid
, who says that Pantheon
will be bringing them back as a "consequence of death" in the game world.
When a player dies in Pantheon
, he or she will have the option to wait for a resurrection or to be reborn without all of that character's gear and weapons. In either event, getting back to one's corpse is of utmost importance because it will not only restore lost gear, but some of the experience lost on death as well. Oh yes, Pantheon
will have XP loss on death. Other players can help out with resurrection or retrieval spells, or players may beseech their deity for help at a cost.
In non-morbid news, Pantheon
posted information and lore on the Sunken Sanctum
, a marshland ruins that will be a formidable dungeon.
