Tales of Tolgard
Reincarnation is another option for a dead adventurer like resurrection. It can bring the dead back to life as long as they have not been dead for too terribly long, usually within a week. While clerics hold traditional dominion over spells such as raise dead and resurrection, druids more often utilize reincarnation instead. Of course, the spell is not without its unique risks…
It certainly brings dead heroes back to life, fully healing them. However, much like raise dead, they will return a little less skillful when they died. What makes this spell unique, however, is the form the returned adventurer will take.
There are fourteen common results although there is always the possibility of a never-before-seen fifteenth option. The most common results are: bugbear, dwarf, elf, gnoll, gnome, goblin, half-elf, half-orc, halfling, human, kobold, lizardfolk, orc, and troglodyte.
