The concept of death in the world of Albion Online refers to the execution or killing of players' characters
Killing a player's character grants PvP fame to the killer and to the players in their party who are in the proximity of the victim.
The PvP Fame value depends on the value of the items the victim has equipped and in their inventory starting from 0 (zero) for a character that has no items at all.
When a character is killed their body drops on the ground. If the killed character has any equipped items or items in their inventory when they are killed, a loot bag drops on the ground.
When the killed character respawns the body turns into a skeleton.
Death in Albion Online is not permanent and as soon as a character is killed they have the option to respawn.
The possible location for respawning depends on the place where the character dies as well as on the type of death they experience.
