GUYS! REVOLUTIONARY new respawn idea!

say when you die instead of reloading you make a choice after every death

A) become a ghost(soul drawn to the nearest magical source like a rune or magic stone or magical ruins or near a place full of mages/magicians/wizards etc.) and float back to your body and repossess it bringing you back to life where you were

though the drawbacks would be

1. everyone else can see you and interact with you, all hostiles who can hit ghosts and all guards/anyone else who can hit ghosts who isnt normally hostile will constantly attack you on your way back trying to kill you

2. your really strong by the magic source but you gradually get weaker the further you stray from it making it progressively harder to get to your body

3. there is a limit to how long you can be a ghost(5-10 mins) and how far you can travel before dissapating(obviously has to be longer than the distance to your body at all times

B) the traditional RPG system(reloading last save)

what do you guys think of my revolutionary new system

seems like diehard RPG fans/realism fans/immersion fans now have a realistic respawn system thats all ingame to sink their teeth into

i think it would add a very cool/fun way to respawn as you wish

Whoa, this is extremely innovative.

It's definitely never been used in any ultrapopular MMORPGs. Never.

Hell, even WoW is pretty similar. Actually, I'm almost positive there was a mod for Morrowind that did almost exactly what you've described above...

I don't see how 'become a ghost and reposess your body' is all that realistic tbh :d

I would like it the other way around. When you die, you'll become a ghost at the spot where you died. Then you have to find the nearest healer, have him/her/it resurrect your soul and then you have to run back to your body to get your items back.

Or just the traditional game over screen.

Kinda reminds me of Demon Souls.... Which would be cool way to come back if they added in a LAN multiplayer mode where you and a friend would have to do something to bring you back.

I like the idea. It just sounds fun, and makes dying not seem so annoying. Good idea man!
