Actually, we implemented a fate system at Imperium years ago.  Players start
with a small amount of fates to start off with, and have a chance of gaining
additional one every level.  Character death causes a loss of a point until
it reaches 0, upon which the character is deleted.  The system has been
tweaked well enough that only the most sloppy or brazen of players meet the
ultimate fate.
