Recover body quests
 
I've noticed that when an NPCs dies while attempting to solve a quest, his/her body can be found (and looted) on the respective dungeon level.
Why not have the Steward hand out a quest to locate that body and bring it back to town so they can give the brave soul a proper burial,
just like when a townsperson wants the player to recover the body of an anonymous "Friend" killed in the dungeon.

Since some of the towns seem to have graveyards, these quests could result in a new stone being added that would read something like
"Kalinda died while attempting to gather 20 Gore clan orc ears on Dire Realm level 3"...

In addition (perhaps):
When a town person dies because of a town attack you can loot the body. Somewhat grim. How about a choice: looting the body -or- bury the body and losing the chance for items but regaining a little reputation.

That does fit in with the directive not to "loot graves" (and losing reputation if you do).

On the looting graves thing -- could clicking on a grave bring up a dialogue, or has that been handled yet? I'm iffy on this -- might interfere with combat -- however accidentally looting a grave isn't my intent.

You can cancel the graverobbing at any time before completion by clicking anywhere off the grave or using any skill.

Is looting graves even worth it?

I've never gotten anything worthwhile, and most of the time I just get attacked by a zombie.

You can get up to 3-4 items of seemingly average quality per grave, neither much better nor much worse than ordinary (non-unique mob) loot. The Reputation cost is minimal compared to the mass amount of RP that every character has. You can dig 20 graves--probably several towns' worth--complete one average quest, and break even on RP.

You won't gain much, but you won't lose much, either.

BTW, I love your username. There's an Australian dog food named Chum with the irresistible slogan "So Chumpy... you can CARVE it!" Best said in the voice of Groundskeeper Willie.
