These are results for buying a lot of lives one after the other, with a Pishite to restore stats and life in between, and with "quite good" alignment. The character in question had died 6 times so far, and had 3 spare lives left before. Lives cost in royals: 1st 3, 2nd 3, 3rd 3, 4th 3, 5th 3, 6th 4, 7th 5, 8th 5, 9th 5, 10th 5, 11th 5, 12th 5 and 13th 7.

These are results for buying a lot of lives one after the other, with a Pishite to restore stats and life in between, and with "neutral" alignment. The character in question had died 7 times so far, and had 26 spare lives left before. Lives cost in royals: 1st 6, 2nd 5, 3rd 6, 4th 7, 5th 8


Results for a (mostly) "quite good" character; usually there's at least 24 hours between lives unless noted, other factors probably render this information invalid, but it just shows that a lot of variables go into the cost of a life:

Results for Seima. They started out with 20 deaths in reserve, and having died 22 times already. These lives were all bought at the same time (buying a life, restoring, repeating) over a period of a few hours, and we stopped when they got the Living in Fear achievement (100 lives in reserve). They were 18 degrees evil the whole time, and a Sekkite. At first they tossed in one royal at a time--after the 80th, they started tossing in the first ten all at once, then tossing in the rest one at a time.

I plotted this as cost of each life (Royals) vs lives bought previously (ie I deducted the 8 initial lives for the calculations).

15 dollars per life plus 3 royals, +- 20% looks good :
