This thread is in the context of Faerûn, but I consider it off-topic because it doesn't really concern any of the actual game.
What does death mean in that world? In the real world, I see death as a quality or state of living things that ceased to continue its life. I even deny there is such a thing as an afterlife because if you can continue through death, it's not dying. That's just a transformation, like from childhood to adulthood. You still have your life, just not as it were before. It's like how puberty is not death.
However, in Faerûn many people died and were resurrected. So death in this context is significantly different from what I perceive death in real life although they look similar (i.e. receiving mortal wounds or poisoned, etc.) Death in this world is not a big STOP sign that means you can't go on. It's just a potential temporary state, like some kind of disease or disability. It might be dealt with in the future and you might recover or it might not and you remain having this state until it's cured or for some reason unable to be cured anymore (which would be a true death).
P.S. I know that you can't resurrect those who died from old age. I just want to express my doubt if resurrectible death really is death.
