Awakened from Death Spell4

Uncommon Healing Necromancy

Traditions divine

Cast 10 minutes (material, somatic, verbal)

Range touch; Targets 1 dead creature

Duration 24 hours


You temporarily return a dead creature’s soul to its body, which must be present and relatively intact and must have died within the past 3 days. If the creature doesn’t wish to return to life, or a deity intervenes (at the GM’s discretion), this spell automatically fails. If the spell is successful, the creature returns with the same restrictions as the raise dead spell. Additionally, the creature is slowed 2 for the duration, and its maximum Hit Points can’t exceed its level. The creature can still benefit from effects that grant temporary Hit Points. Finally, the creature is stupefied 2 for the duration, but alter reality, miracle, primal phenomenon, restoration, or wish can remove the stupefied condition.

For the duration, the creature’s body doesn’t decay as though it benefited from the gentle repose spell.


Heightened (6th) The duration increases to 1 week.
