A special item given out is called Fountain of Savior, FoS for short. It is used to revive yourself to full health directly where you're standing when you died. If you choose not to use it you're sent back out of Land of Death. It is suggested to only use Fountain of Savior when Dark Horn comes. For once he comes, a Lv. 85 fire element demon with powerful attacks, the gate closes and you cannot re-enter for another 12 hours. Dark Horn comes when the clock hits 140. Once the clock hits 140, wait a few more seconds, for he doesn't come immediately. He continues to come every 4 minutes for 1 minute for a whole hour. It is not required to kill Dark Horn, because it is very hard to and only few family's have done so. Dark Horn will continue to come until the clock hits 80. Once it hits 80, LoD closes and everyone is kicked out.
