Staff of Resurrection


CL 14th Major Conjuration

This long slender staff made of Ivory and Jade is 6’ long and encompasses a sapphire at the top which is the receptacle for holding the charges of the spell Resurrection.

The staff, when created, holds 25 charges. It can be recharged so long as there is at least one charge still available, if not, the staff’s sapphire is reduced to dust and it becomes an ordinary walking stick.

Spell Resurrection
School: conjuration (healing)

Components: V,S,M (Diamond worth 10,000gp), DF
Source: Core Rulebook
Summary: Fully restore dead subject

This spell functions like raise dead, except that you are able to restore life and complete strength to any deceased creature.

The condition of the remains is not a factor. So long as some small portion of the creatures body still exists, it can be resurrected, but the portion receiving the spell must have been
part of the creature’s body at the time of death. (The remains of a creature hit by a disintegrate spell count as a small portion of its body). The creature can have been dead no longer than 10 years per caster level.

Upon completion of the spell, the creature is immediately restored to full hit points, vigor, and health, with no loss of prepared spells. The subject of the spell gains one permanent negative level as if it had been hit by an energy-draining creature. If the subject is 1st level, it takes 2 points of Constitution drain instead (if this would reduce the Con to 0 or less, then it cannot be resurrected).

You can resurrect someone killed by a death effect or someone who has been turned into an undead creature and then destroyed. You cannot resurrect someone who has died of old age. Constructs, elementals, outsiders, and undead creatures can’t be resurrected. (See True Resurrection for Undead).
