+ if it is turned into a ceremonial ritual. With trappings!
++ if it is a deep, religious sort of thing for this character.
+++ if they try to convert the others in the party.
The Next Step - have the name of an MC turn up in the obits. While that person is still alive.
+ if the other members of the party proceed to act as if that person has indeed passed away, holding a memorial service, crying, and carrying on.
++ if the character participates in the proceedings.
+++ if the character listed in the obituaries then dies.
Additional Fun - Let there be one party member that does not subscribe to this belief, and thinks the whole thing is silly, possibly making snarky comments, or at least thinking them.
+ if s/he gets shunned at some point for not participating in the daily Reading of the Obits.
+++ + if it's the non-believer whose name turns up in the obituaries.
Alternately: if it is not the non-believer's name in the obituaries, but that person decides converting is a good idea.
