Have we had a discussion about perma death yet?
I would suggest that if this were to be implemented, we ought to go that one stage further than anyone else and be at the leading edge of perma death technology.
We should link forum accounts to in-game accounts.
When your character dies in the game, then your forum account goes with it.
This would make the risk all the greater, but clearly it needs to be balanced with some hefty rewards. Perhaps neon coloured weapons or clothing to mark you out as the truly courageous adventurer that you are.
I open the floor to you ladies & gentlemen to suggest suitable rewards for those who are brave enough to play in perma death (game & forum) mode.
