Lifestones are magical devices that players can attune to. When they die they are resurrected at the last lifestone they used. Lifestones appear as blue dots on the radar. Players can recall to their attuned lifestone with the command /lifestone. Characters with Item Enchantment can also learn a spell to tie to a different lifestone and recall there, as well as a spell that sends them to their attuned lifestone faster than the command.
Lifestones were once used as beacons for portal travel by Asheron's people, the Yalaini. After the Yalaini lost their battle to the Olthoi Asheron sent his people into stasis in portal space. After the death of The One Queen Asheron altered the lifestones to be points of resurrection, and they began to grow out of the ground. When Isparians die, they lose a portion of their life force in the form of a Vitae Penalty. This vitae goes to the Yalaini trapped in portal space to keep them alive.
When the stones first began growing they worked imperfectly, causing the corpses of the dead to reanimate as Undead.
Years later, during the A Perfect Paradox event, Nuhmudira used her arcane knowledge to create lifestone design of her own. This was done out of Nuhmidira's distrust of Asheron and the Empyreans. Besides their different appearance (see the image on the right above) her lifestones do not help the Yalaini trapped in portal space but they still extract vitae of course. There are very few of the Nuhmudira's lifestones around Dereth.
