Could we have a server that imposes permadeath rules? e.g. no resurrections spells; shrines; spirit release etc.

We do. Every server comes ready-made with permadeath capabilities.

Not even allowing players to cast Raise Dead? That's... some pretty hardcore PD rules. Anyway, hydra_ex is right: you are free to impose any rules you like on your play without needing Turbine to maintain an entire separate set of game code.

This would require the permadeath player base to agree on what those rules would be. Most of them do not, which is why there are a number of PD guilds on each server, to support different rulesets. If Turbine made one PD server, the people who agreed with that ruleset would join the server and ~95% of the rest of the PD community would continue playing just as they have on their original servers.

Only if we can have a server to accommodate every other niche style play, too.

Can we get a server for all the people who think we should have a specific server designated for every particular playstyle? Yep, just bulldoze all 40 of their toons right onto a new server. We can have 3,752 servers each with 40 players on them. Just fill out this form, and we will ensure you are schlepped onto a 1337 server with 39 of your closest internet friends who completely agree with you.

Do you zerg between the hours of 7am to 1pm?
Do you PVP? All the time?
Do you window farm xp?
Are you one gender but all your toons the other gender?
Do you delete a toon if it dies, but dont agree with 95% of the other people who play the game who also delete their toon when it dies?
Do you firewall every single mob with max empower and extend cranked up and drink mana potions in the second room of the quest?
Do you only play dwarven fighter types?
Are you a cleric that will not heal Warforged?
Are you a bard that will not heal anyone?
Are you a battle cleric that doesnt heal other players?
Do you create threads in the forums that cry about the above three?
Do you measure success solely by comparing kill counts.
Do you create threads about how you hate new players that do this one specific thing that makes you mad, even though all the old players who do the same thing are cool?
Are you a self proclaimed vet?
Do you feel that you and all others who play like you are the only people who are holding the entire fabric of the Ebarron universe together?
Did you used to complain the game was too hard, and now complain the game is too easy?
Do you have a 2 liter bottle of soda and a bag of chips within arms reach right now while reading this?
Do you wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night?
Do you wish you had a Nintendo controller for the ice jump and half pipes?
