Should barbarians die when their rage ends?
I was just playing as a barbarian and when her rage ended, she simply collapsed without being hit and without making a sound, and then the "death's hand" screen played. She had received a fair amount of damage while raging, so I assume her death was the result of readjusting to "non-raged" status with a low number of hit points.
I know berserkers automatically lose 15 HPs when their rage ends, which can kill them if they have less than 15 HPs by that time - but does the same also hold true for barbarians? I played as barbarians often in BG2, and I don't ever recall one dying when their rage ended. The way she simply collapsed without making a sound was also strange - it leaves me wondering whether this is really a bug.
