death, followed by...?

Having just lost *another* character (ethereal dragon, dl47), a question occurred to me: when a character dies, why do we have to quit the program and reload it to be able to start a new character?

can't we just have an option to start a new character? not that it's that much of a mission, just seems odd...

dave

PS. or have I missed something obvious?

I'm guessing it's easier to exit and restart than re-initialize everything.

The game has never been made re-entrant. There is an open ticket to do it one day, but it's never made it to the top of anybody's priority list.

It's just to make you feel bad (worse) about losing.
