I made two toons with same name a while ago (but different first/last name composition - if you get my meaning). For some reasons I didn't delete the abundant toon, and level the real toon to 60, tagged to cania etc. Then a few days ago I decided to get rid of it's twin - it went well until I discovered that I could not login my real toon anymore. When I login, the client gived me the message that "You cannot possess already dead creature.". I wonder if this toon will be salvagable... this character is the deepest tagged toon I have and being in the gmt+8 zone it's really hard to find a hell run, would be sad to lose it.

How exactly did you try to get rid of the extra toon? There are still two with the same filename in your vault. Were you trying to relog onto the same server you deleted the other character on? There's a block against doing so that lasts 24 hours, to prevent exploits.
I used the !delete simmtool command to delete it. I just logged my toon on every server just to test it, and I no longer get the "cannot possess" message, I saw my toon in the dock, all seems to be fine now. Phew thought it'd be gone for good.
This issue very well could be the 24 hours block you mentioned, and to be honest I don't remember exactly when I deleted the toon. So obviously I noob again.
