    In your permissions section the top 4 are spelled 'CharonsFerry' and the bottom 4 are spelled 'CheronsFerry'.

    I might be able to pull off an option like that! I like that idea for an rpg style server:) Thanks for the great idea.

    I just finished testing the plugin and it's great :). Loving every aspect of it...

    If I had to suggest something is an alternate way to revive the player. Certain worlds, especially RPG worlds have a substantial amount of areas where building is not allowed, so you cannot build or break stuff.

    Is there the possibility of getting a named item (like paper) and call it a 'Scroll of Resurrection' which when right clicked on a sign, revives the player? I am just thinking of a way to revive the player without using a command if possible... so as to add to the immersion :).

    I would love for this to update, it is by far the best way to handle death I have seen. I understand you're having a tough time. I just wanted you to know this mod is highly desired :D. Don't give up!

    Thanks for the compliments. I already had many of your suggestions planned, however all my plugins are currently on hold. I just separated from my wife and have been somewhat homeless for the past couple of months. Good news however I am in a place now and am just waiting for my finances to stabilize before I get cable hooked back up. I will be adding many new features including being able to break your death sign to revive, becoming a ghost where you died, Visibility to other ghosts and a ghost only chat, better tombstones, the ability to set a spawn point for all ghosts, pick up, place, drop, open/close objects, exc. All these options will be toggle able in the config as well as have permissions for each. I hope this answers all your questions and I hope to be updating this and my other plugins asap.

    This is awesome! Almost what I was looking for: I had some thoughts:

    You should make the ghosts be able to see eachother. Only ghosts can see other ghosts. Along with the smoke effect, this will help Ghosts distinguish other ghosts in a group of players.

    Ghosts should not be able to drop items, but should be able to pick them up. This is especially good for haunting someone while they're mining.

    Players should come back (as a ghost) where they died, not at their spawn point. This overrides the game a bit, I know, but if possible would make it a lot more realistic I think.

    Ghost players maybe shouldn't be able to chat? They can listen, of course, or communicate through chat with other ghosts.

    The boon is amazing! I love that the block gets incinerated as a sacrifice I though that was really really clever. Perhaps the sign should go too? I really have no problems beyond this point - just compliments.

    I love the darkened effect, that you can only see around you! And I love the smoke trails.

    Great great plugin. I hope you like the suggestions enough to implement :)
