    im sure this was probablly asked and answered waaaaaaaaaaaaay back when Old Haven was ravaged and New Haven was made..... but whats with the Necro Hut and all the player names on all the dead bodies on the roof?

    for the longest time i just figured that they where NPC names.
    then a while back i noticed that they arnt NPC names, but rather names of players.... and they look like they spawn.

    so are they infact tied to who is dieing on that shard at that time?

    cause sometimes i go by and there are only a few bodies there and then there are days like the other day when there was a LOT, like well into the double to triple numbers of dead bodies up there.

    anyone?

    iirc, those are players killed by the dark knight...

    When you create a char in KR, you'll get a rune to challenge the dark knight. Those that challenge him before they are ready get their butts handed to them...

    Correct, that's where you come out after the battle (regardless of whether you win or not).

    But I kinda get the impression not all the bodies up there belong to real characters... There's certainly NO WAY they all belong to people actively working the Knight.

    Maybe the game just cycles through people who've done the battle in the past, maybe it really does relate to people dieing anywhere in the shard...
