The idea of dying in the Land of the Dead by being either: sprouted, grinded, killed by demons, falling of the Edge...

It's stupid! How can you die when you're already dead. And where do you go after that?

i recon when u actually die (the first time)you're soul is still alive and journeys to the land of eternal rest, however if u get sprouted in the land of the dead then ur soul is destryed and so u no longer exist...maybe:D

Annihilation is one option. (In fact, that's what actually happens to the soul after its four-year journey in Aztec mythology.) The other possibility is, I think, that the soul remains conscious but is incapable of any action...and therefore in great torment. I believe Andrei is taking 'death within death' far too literally.

I never bothered thinking about it.

I always try to keep it simple:

IT HAPPENS BECAUSE IT HAPPENS

well i'm no expert but...

sprouting- it's growing the seed of life in your dead body. life=death or something.
grinded - well, i dont think it really KILLS you, cause if part of you is grinded, you still live, but if you'r grinded into tiny lil' useless parts, how CAN you live?
killed by demons - what? who said you can get killed by demons? you mean the sea monsters?...well...the entire chewing you to parts and stomach acids melting you and all-same concept as the grinding thing
falling of the edge- doesnt mean you die...just fall forever...it's an endless fall, remember?


please do correct me if i'm wrong

:jawa considering life itself,
full of strange inconsistancies,
I believe anything that may happen
in the land of the dead seems
rather logical.
I mean take orange for example?
I do not know how it is in Romania,
but here we call it orange,
it's colour is orange
and it's flavour is orange?
(and I personally know the one
exiting rhyming word for said
colour\food by-product)
so life;
it's a funny old world,
so why should it not be a funny old
death too?
:jawa

and while on the subject of life and death
and the great mysteries,
how come Jesus and his 12
drinking buddies equals 13
and yet they are not considered
a covenant or occult,
and yet if 13 people gather
on the sabbath they are scarry occult!
then there is glass.
I mean glass is a liquid
and yet I pour my liquid
into my liquid,
using a coaster all the while
so as to NOT leave a water stain
on the liquid surface of my coffee table
(and coffee is a liquid too)
*when you don't sleep
it is amazing what you think of.*
yes I am your form's new
dislexic atheist.
that's right;
staying up late
praying to dog,
so you don't have to.

Romania is a lot closer to Russia
than where I live,
and even though I am a virtual junky,
I still find time to go out to
the liquor store to buy some Vodka.
We have a saying here in the west;
"you seem to have way too much
time on your hands."
and also
"maybe it's time to move out
of your parents basement, Comrade."
but do not take offense;
I rant.
(hey fishes,
they live in the ocean.
Wonder if they ever get sick
of eating seafood?)

*Reads the above posts thoughtfully.*

Alright. I have decided to reword my previous post:

"It happens because they felt like making it happen so that people who play it as much as we do will think about it and post their thoughts about it in their happy little Grim Fandango haven."

That sounds about right.

Anselmo Naranja: "Bring it on, Pops!"
Toto Santos: "I'll 'pop' YOU, sailor-boy!"

If sprouting consists of filling someones skeletal soulish body with the seed of life, then maybe they return to the land of the living. Y'know, like, reincarnation, and all that other crap.

ANYWAY GRIM FANDANGO IS WRONG. JEEZUS SEZ SO.
