1. The rituals of death vary greatly between religions, races, and even regions. Most bury their deceased, whether alone where they fell, or in a large plot among their forefathers. Often they are accompanied with accoutrements of life: weapons, offerings of food and drink, clothing, or provisions. Some are mummified, dried by sand and sun. Others are entombed in sometimes massive mausolea with deep catacombs beneath.

    Once or twice a year, most races hold some sort of festival or holiday in honor of the dead. Whether to encourage those passed on to stay content in the afterlife, with gifts of flowers, myrrh, cleaned tombs, and song … or simply to remember those we were forced to leave behind, what is important and often forgotten is that we all remember. A tauren mother will cry over the loss of a young son just as much as a draenei will weep for the loss of his mate.

    The Horde and Alliance are not so different, after the final bell tolls.
