As the title says - the cloak of deception buff, which should be permanent after you pay to have it done at the sher-tul fortress, is being removed on death. I know this didn't happen the last time I played, and I highly doubt it's from a new addon (I've only added one recently and it's unrelated). Why is the cloak of deception even still a thing, it's completely unnecessary except for flavor to the game which could easily be changed to remove pointless busywork for the player.

All the Cloak of Deception does is change the undead player's faction to Allied Kingdoms while you're wearing it, and sets the fake_race (Human) and fake_subrace (Cornac) so that text that refers to a player's race looks human instead. The Uncloak of Deception addon changed the faction, but also overwrote the inscriptions, so I made the Intrinsic Deception mod which removes the Cloak, changes the faction inherently as well as making some changes to the starting dialog and Necromancer lore for Maj'Eyal Undead characters. However, the fake_race etc. stuff hasn't been set yet so some (friendly) NPCs refer to you specifically as Undead when they should refer to you as Human.

So I'm sure the devs could easily edit things to remove the Cloak and integrate the lore behind why the undead player looks human.
