Death occurs when a character's Hard HP drops below 0. In such a case, the following events occur:
- All equipped items and items in inventory will be dropped into character's grave. The only exceptions are some exclusive or items that have a No Drop flag.
- Skill loss. Depending on character alignment, the amount of skill loss will be calculated and will decrease randomly selected skills values. Skill loss will not occur during battle or siege events. Approximate skill loss values depending on alignment can be seen on alignment page.
