How Verra has skeletons? How the lore explains that?

When people die they turn into ashes.

Is there a connection about this to the Goddess of Creation?
The Phoenix is the celestial avatar of the Goddess of Creation.[12]

I might have read something somewhere about this, that she gives life, when people die they turn into ashes.

So how there's skeletons in the game?

What's the correct lore about this?

  • Humans are like lazy phoenixes so instead of dieing and reviving into itself again like a phoenix humans half ass it like human do with most things :p and only come back as the skeletons instead of whole body :p
  • Maybe corrupted and "evil" beings suffer the affliction of self-grasping due to too much hate, so they fail in becomming ashes?
    :p

    This effect applies to players and not mobs.[1]

    The reason for why respawning occurs, as you guys know, the avatar of the Goddess of Creation is the phoenix; and the phoenix obviously has some very stable mythological lore to it with regards to the cycle of life and death and rebirth; and that type of thing. As you enter into the world of Verra you are in a way empowered with the spark of life that comes from the Goddess of Creation herself, and in that sense you're able to house a portion of what that represents in your soul and your... conduit to the essence.[2] – Steven Sharif
    Most people never listen. They are just waiting on you to quit making noise so they can.

    I made this topic exactly because there's no explanation in the wiki about the fact that there's human skeletons
    https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Undead

    There's human zombies:

    So if a human npc dies then it can become a skeleton? That's odd if it was the case

    Maybe the lore will need a stunt to justify why there's human skeletons, maybe if they corrupted can leave bones behind, etc
  • To clarify, the central, story-centric emperor of old to familiarize yourself with is King Atrax.

    This person was the first of Verra to touch the Corruption in the Essence, though it was essentially a trap laid by the Ancients, to punish the Seven's chosen/favored creations. Atrax was the FIRST OF THE UNDEAD, as a lich - though he converted many of his followers to undead, over time.



  • Lore makes sense until you die as Tulnar, then what. Where did you get that spark? If it was given before, then there would still be no skeletons.

    RMT-bots have been turned into skeletons :p
  • Clearly they came to Verra as undead through their own gate, and are cloned by an eccentric vampire with limited domestic help and insatiable architectural ambitions.

    Mystery solved. When’s dinner?

    So remnants of new world - corruption portals was the prevention of skeletons from coming to AoC?

  • Is it that unusual for an immortal being to get bored in Sanctus? Everyone needs a vacation from time to time. World-ending corruption seems like a good time for some time away. Plus you’re not going to leave the summoned help at home, right?

    Someone’s gotta schlep the loot from ruins to ruins.
