- When you die in battle, you are reborn as a "ghost" in a graveyard and must return to your dead corpse to resurrect. Many players, after successfully killing your character, actually *wait by your corpse* so that when you resurrect (wounded), they can easily kill you again, and again, and again. This is called "corpse camping".
