I'd assume reincarnation is an option simply because I suspect that's how most Vislae came to be born into Shadow.
However, perhaps reincarnation means Forgetfulness which may be why it's seen as the ultimate worst option?
The Harmless Monster is a Reclusive Waveheart Apostate Who Cannot Be Touched. Residing in the Nightside under the Pale Sun, not much is known about this Vislae who serves the Queen of Regrets but it is rumoured that its appearance is forewarned by a sudden flash of silver and its victims weep tears of blood
Alice is the Beloved Flameheart of the Order of Vances who Speaks with the NooSphere. She is the true twin of that well known Alice who is the Inquisitive Flameheart of the Order of Weavers who Travels Astrally.
Alice the Beloved, explored the realms under the Pale Sun, as a companion to the Professor, an Itinerant Stormheart Maker Who Travels Through Time & Space. He was seeking proof to support the Law of Five. His idea so far with regards to death:
1- Pale Residency
And what about simple reincarnation? Retaining the spirit but giving up the memories of the past life to return to the Shadow as a new creature, not always human.
"I know that for many of you the real torment is that you must abandon your dear bodies. You imagine, not unreasonably, that the happiness of a disembodied spirit has something dreary about it.
But that is not the case. After death, you will find yourself wandering through a haze, shouting without being heard, but all at once it will be you who hear. You will become aware that someone is following you, like an animal in the forest, only now in the darkness of the heavens. The person following you is your oblation, the being composed of the offering you made in your life. In a whisper, he will say to you:
'Come here, come here, it is I, your Self.'
And in the end you will follow him."
--R. Calasso, in Ka: Stories of the Mind and Gods of India
Cemeteries are also popular places for dead people to live.
Huh...it sounds like playing a character after "death" might be an interesting turn of events.
