I can remember back in Final Fantasy XI when a Tarutaru died, they would be faced down in the dirt.

I am glad that Lalafell is laying on their backs when they die in Final Fantasy XIV:http://bizzyffxi.us/images/dead-lalafell.jpg

So does all races in FFXIV face up in FFXIV when dead?

I sure hope they add a Return? popup for launch, cause nothing happening when you die is really frustrating for the first few times. Actually, I still pause for like 2 seconds when I die because I'm not used to having to open a menu to go back.

I would pause and wait for a few seconds too at first, but after much exploring (and running around in Mor Dhona with friends and acting stupid) I hit return in the menu out of habit now.

Admittedly, I actually have no idea if the 'pose' for death is different if you have a weapon drawn. My many, many deaths have all been while running around and exploring thus far.

You are so right Pikko!

In Phase 3 I actually deleted a character because I couldn't figure it out. If you don't have any Aetheryte unlocked before you die the first time - you are SoL?

Maybe the one in your starting city is automatic. Still I thought "Return" would be how to cancel out of the menu, not to Ressurect. Even if you log out and back in you are still dead.

The "Call of Adverture" should open up automatically early on. Well, I suppose at release you will have the actual game manual to read if you don't understand at first. Not very many people have read the manual provided on the Beta Site. Maybe the real manual even includes some Macro examples.
