Perhaps not all are resurrecting immediately upon their deaths. There might be room for someone's story to have him dying 200 years ago, and reappearing only now; quite a bit of fun you could have with that.
Having mulled this over last evening, I'm liking it quite a bit, and it solves my time-gap problem.
I suspect that whatever has caused the Mark to pop up and start doing its thing is a recent event, thus only those dying after point-in-time "X" (the start of EE) would be resurrected. Those who had died previously will have already visited the Boneyard, been judged by the Lady of Graves, and moved on to their final destination.
However, what if a lingering soul - say a ghost or a spirit bound to the beginning area of the game map - was present at this time? Then like the spirits of the newly dead, could it be resurrected as well?
