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"...
