Which I can't now find... I can't even remember which list it was on. I remember him saying that Practice quest you stay this side, HeroPlane level you cross over, but I don't remember any suggestion that your physical body crosses over. Somewhere we have a description of a "normal" quest (whatever that means!) where the participants send their souls (*) travelling and their bodies stay behind, apparently asleep, and one hopes, well guarded.

(*) A place where we lack vocabulary. I mean of course "soul, spirit, essence, or other equivalent thing in whatever magic system they use". In normal English "soul" and "spirit" would be synonymous - HQ terminology gives these distinct meanings, but fails to provide a generic word.

Sure - but it isn't mundane now.

Which is rather a shame!
