Accidental Death in MMOs
I was a big fan of The Lord of the Rings Online and played for about a year and a half from ’97 to 99′ or so. As in many MMOs, there’s a certain amount of regard for players who can survive many levels without dying. On the other hand many players consider those players “care bears”, a derogatory term for someone who avoids danger to stay alive. One thing that has always bugged in me LOTRO is “real-life-happens accidental death”.

You lost the magic of Sands of Time and you had no idea how to get it back. You deserved what you got.
