There's no fixed conversion rate for real time to Layo time, as it also involves the occurance of certain events (read plot events) to move time.

Please do not do that.  That is pretty much an insult to all other players out there that will treat death with respect, as it should be.
  I have seen a lot of your posts and I am going to make something clear here.
  This is an RP server, it is not for hack and slash.  RP is what we are after.

...im only level 11... or is it 12... dont know i dont play often anymore. I have 7 or 8 DT. and i dont thank i die all to often. lol the one i  rember to most is from a climbing rock... i was on my way back from a trip through fire steps and i died on a rock... and i got a DT, rather funning i might add now that i thank of it, OH and i also noted, not shure if its just me, but as a lvl 11... i die... and it makes the roll vs the sole mother, now it should be somthing like; rolled a 19. DC=11. 11 is my level so the DC should be 11 correct? well for me when i die my DC is 12... now ive never rolled a 12 and got a toekn so i dont know if its just a typo or what, but just thought i should toss that out there.

You have 7 tokens, as for dying too often, you've died the second most of any player on the server since we've started keeping track.

The chance at getting a token is 11%, so rolling an 11 would be a failure, so the DC is actually 12.

I imagine people are going to get tired of hearing about it *very* soon, but I'd just like to point out that sometimes, the system *will* nail you.  In the last five times I've died, four of those resulted in DTs, one non-token death in between two sets of two in a row, and I was level 8 or below for all four of them.  Ask the people I usually run with, I die very rarely at all.

Just avoid dying, and it won't be a problem.

Imagine investing over a year in your character and doing great, then getting 4 tokens in 2 weeks on 5 deaths.  Such is the way of the dice.

As for avoiding dying.  Er go on more of Leanthar's quests. Heh

Heh yep, 19 and 20.  But I took the Soul Mother's Defense Feat which gives you 5 more tokens.  Though you can only can take it after level 20.

2 of those tokens happened about 45 minutes apart too, nasty quest, the Red Moon Ritual.

I win!  DT's 1 and 2 were fifteen minutes apart at level.. 6 or 7, I believe.  It was on the Fate of Carocsa.

Is that a Layo record?  I do hope so. ;)

Yeah, as long as you don't say, "death ward is fer panzies!" You should be fine until you at least hit the mid teen levels.


I still feel bad about that quest. But hey, atleast I can say I'm the only person to run a quest where someone Perma died, and said "Deathward is fer pansies" two minutes before their death.

Sorry nope, it was 29 minutes apart, another player received 2 at Level 7 in 9 minutes.

Back in the day when Prong used to DM Llu would get and loose a perm token every night due to his "Lets slaughter Llu" night.

Did I mention that was every night?
