Gorshian Death Rites
"Death begins in life, in Gorshi. Wherever we can, we prepare the soul to be caught and bound back into the body in death—that means having someone on hand to do the binding."
"You make me put on the stupid death veil every time I go to bed! Let my ghost haunt you, you morbid bastards! It's a cough, not the death!"
Gorshian death rites are done in preparation of the next phase of a Gorshian's life: their undead duty as Revenant. They are dressed in enchanted ceremonial enchanted clothing and brought to rest in the Chapel of the Skyward Plea, where Crow and Guile watch over them until they are healthy... or deceased.
The rites can be done on anyone of any age. While the sick and infirm are not required to do it, there is immense social pressure to do so—it's a mark of shame upon your family to have anyone become a geist because they were not properly prepared for death.
