Get into the habit of saving using the SAVE command when you have gotten your gear back from your corpse after dying. This is in case the MUD crashes and reverts you to a saved version of your pfile when you had no gear. - Riviat
I started a conversation on hero about the worst places to die outside eha and it turned out to be pretty interesting. I'd love to hear where YOU think the worst place to die is. As of now the consensus seems to be deep in the Medallion of Justice quest.
