An MMO's death penalty is an oft discussed topic. Some games, like Champions Online have such a slight penalty, it might as well not even exist. Technically, Champions has a live bonus instead of a death penalty. Other games like Darkfall, Eve or Final Fantasy XI are known for steeper penalties. (FFXI more-so in its earlier days) Death in Darkfall and Eve means a likely loss of all the items you had on you. Critics say Death Penalties Are Stupid. That's a valid, albeit blunt, opinion. Penalty or no, what's the one thing that all these games have in common? Death.
