Of course, all of these penalties had one theme in common: time. They all make you spend more time in the game for your mistake. Sometimes the XP loss would take more than an hour to get back. If you lost all of your gear then you’re looking at a very long time before you get all of it back, especially if any of it is rare. In EverQuest you could lose an entire week of gameplay by one single death if you fell into a dungeon and were unable to run to your corpse. So, looking at it, the Allods penalty isn’t nearly as harsh.
