Gaming Survey: Character Death In Computer RPGs

Death - it can be a hassle or it can be exhilarating when playing a computer RPG.  What do you think about death in your games?  Should there be a penalty for dying outside the Starter Zone?

Gaming Survey: Regarding Character Death

But what should happen to your character if they die OUTSIDE the Starter Zone?

Your Turn: What Do You Do?

Are there other ways to handle character death in RPGs?

Tell me about it in the Comments Section.  I'm interested in what you have to say about your favorite way to come back from the dead in your favorite RPG.
