Dying is a step that does change one's outlook. PC types have interesting deaths and don't go directly to their cultural underworld ! As we all know, dying is painful and terrifying, but Death is a Beginning...

It is confusing. If the underworld has no connection to the transcendent, how come Teelo Estara could meet Rashorana there and become illuminated?

I agree there are dark places in the depths that aren't part of the lands of the dead. We have these terms - the underworld, hell, the various lands of the dead, wonderhome, but it's not clear to what extent they are the same or different. We could do with a sourcebook just about that.
