As lexor said, there isn't. It helps prevent things like characters respawning and purchasing their old items off of the market as well as discourages the against-the-rules activity of respawning for a force reroll.

This is not the appropriate place to bypass the restriction on suggesting a decrease to the death timer in the Suggestions forum.
We won't be decreasing the timer. Perma-death is an element of the Combine that makes us somewhat unique and adds another layer of strategy and importance to your character's life. The death wait allows players to contemplate their next character, emphasizes the gravity of the life of a character, and ensures that players cannot immediately re-enter and affect the galactic situation that might have led to their demise.
I see now. I am sorry! Though it makes sense more so now. So again sorry for the hastiness of my inpatients! Anything you guys could suggest to bypass time? Like hanging in the forums etc? Also is it Real Life 20 Days? Or is strictly generated on whatever time it is!?
IRC, Forums, doing OOC Work for the Combine (working with Teams, descriptions or error hunting, art requests, etc.), RPing (not as your old character, but your New one), learning a real-life skill (e.g. programming), going outside and playing/walking/biking/etc., talking to a loved one, talking to a hated one, talking to strangers, accepting candy from strangers, running from would-be-kidnappers, giving statements to police, .... Wait, I passed 3 weeks a while back.
