It would be funny to see if you could set up a group that has 3 DHs that just die intentionally (don't wear any armor, so no gold loss) for the explosions, and have one member revive party members.
Is this conceivable? I haven't actually seen revive used in game yet, does it take long to revive someone? and is this process interrupted by damage?
EDIT: Hmm. on second thought, the DHs would at least need to use a strong weapon to actually cause damage. This would then cost gold to implement.
