Due to loopholes in death a player could log out and back on to escape the death penalty (50 xp per lvl and 10% gold).

This can no longer happen. On death a death amulet is spawned on the player. If the player logs out and back on, that player will find himself dead. A couple of playing notes FYI:

1) If you are risen from the dead, look for the amulet and drop it. If you leave with one of these in you inventory, you will log in dead next time.

2) The amulet is automaticly removed when you choose to return from the afterlife.

If a DM rezzes a character or another player uses a spell or scroll to raise a PC, the amulet will be on that PC.
    This is important! Said PC must get rid of the amulet.
Death amulets may be dropped by PC or given to a DM. Barry wrote a script to add to Resurrection and Raise Dead scrolls and spells that destroys the death amulet on use. Unfortunately, the script is still under testing. NWN is twitchy about just where you put scripts, so he's being cautious.

Good news! As of last night, Death Amulets are automatically removed when a character has life again.

It has been pointed out by others that taking the respawn penalty is a small price to pay for not having permadeath. The addition of Spiffy's code to Barry's Death Amulet Script should help players, DMs, and PAs. Thank you all for your patience. It's a tough balancing act, trying to be fair and provide a fun environment for all.
