If you ever die, don’t click the button that sends you back to town. Instead go to the exit menu, and hit exit, but don’t confirm it! Now with that ‘are you sure you wan to exit’ window up go back to the village, IMMEDIATLY after you see your character standing up, hit and confirm exit FAST!!!.
Now when you start the game up again you will be in the spot you died instead of in town. It’s good for when your far from town and don’t feel like running back, but nonetheless you still lose exp. Try it out.
