Few souls ever do escape the Fugue.
💀 Permadeath is unforgiving. There is no "respawn."
😡 Of course, there are rare circumstances in which a character is brought back to life (resurrected). These instances almost always involve Player Misconduct.
👨🏻💻 Characters suffering from Permadeath due to server-, build-, or code-related errors should speak with a Dungeon Master to initiate an investigation.
🔎 Always take screenshots and keep a log of chat. The burden of proof is on you, the player, to prove PvP Misconduct.
Cassus mortem (lit., "empty death") is simply when a player's character has suffered Permadeath under less-than-ideal situations. In most cases, so long as the underlying framework for the death had an in-character rationale, the resulting Permadeath is final.
For example, a player idling in Buckle Under Wood or a character "lagging out" (or going AFK) in the sewers is unlikely to be resurrected.
