When an individual dies, they go to Loex, or place of the dead.To the Dwarves it is known as Urar and to the Elves it is known as Maiasar. But the body and the spirit separate and the spirit goes to Loex. The spirit has one chance to complete a trial/trials in order to be reunited with the body in the material plane. If it fails, they are separated forever. If successful, they live again. If they were to die after that, there is no coming back by trials.
