    It has been.... maybe as long as a year since I played last.
    I got to the urge to play, found the expansion for on the cheap, hell I even picked up the 360 version.

    I logged in, found myself in the Valkerie Dunes. I figured out that when last I played I had been leveling a sub-job that is level 17.
    I aggrod a Lizard.
    Ended up getting my ass handed to me.

    What is puzzling is I can't seem to find ANYTHING that has been reduced on my character. No lost XP points. Doesn't look like my magic got leveled down or anything. Looks like I got knocked back to the dude with the flag and I am ready to go against the lizzard again.

    Tell me that FFXI didn't drink the cool-aid and take away all repurcussions to getting killed. Tell me it isn't so.

    What I am trying to ask, is is there still a death penalty in this game?

    I called it 'drinking the Kool-Aid' cause I think these games are moving in the direction of no death penalty. I am from the school of thought that death is bad and not having a penalty takes some of the drama from the game. No drama and I get bored.
