The Raise Dead spell allows a Cleric to resurrect a dead adventurer. When used successfully it can result in significant experience gain for the Cleric, from a minimum of 250 up to approximately 400-500 points. It will also grant the target 50% of the experience the cleric received as long-term experience, up to a cap of 250 LTE per day for the receiver.

Note that it can be dangerous to cast Raise Dead without having at least a bonus of 100 in Spiritual Mana Control. Excluding enhancives, this generally means 24 ranks of Spiritual Mana Control.

Linking

The first step is establishing a spiritual link to the body by casting Well of Life at the corpse. After 15 seconds of roundtime (and any desired rites or rituals), the Cleric may cast Raise Dead at the body. The Cleric will sustain heavy roundtime (35-45 seconds), and both the Cleric and the recently resurrected will be stunned. Failure to cast Well of Life before casting Raise Dead (as well as casting Raise Dead on oneself) will cause a spiritual backlash and a significant stun.

After the resurrection the Cleric remains linked to the person. If, for any reason, during this time the person dies again the Cleric receives this message:

You have a foreboding sense of darkness enveloping your soul as you realize XXX has died while both of you are still soul linked!
You can sense the tugging of XXX's soul clinging on to life, pulling you headlong into the long dark.
It takes every ounce of spiritual energy you have to sever the link and claw yourself back to the world of the living!
You feel empty and torpid, unable to focus your spiritual self.

Once this occurs the Cleric temporarily loses the ability to resurrect the dead for one hour.

Healing

A prudent cleric makes sure the corpse is not bleeding prior to casting the spell; most people that are dead have a good reason for being so, and failure to fix this (by calling upon the services of an Empath, use of POURable herbs, or simply TENDing the wounds with the First Aid skill) could result in the newly-arisen meeting a second death - before the link between Cleric and client drops. If that happens, the Cleric will be unable to use Well of Life, and therefore be unable to cast Raise Dead successfully, for one hour.

Costs

Casting Raise Dead will drain the caster of spirit points, based upon the maximum spirit of the target and the degree of training in the Cleric Base Spells the Cleric possesses. Overtraining DOES trigger these benefits.

  • At 18 ranks, the spell is Raise Dead and costs 75% of the target's maximum spirit, and restores them to 1 health and spirit.
  • At 25 ranks, the spell is Life Restoration and costs 50% of the target's maximum spirit. This stronger version of Raise Dead grants the newly-arisen 10% of maximum health and spirit.
  • At 40 ranks, the spell is Resurrection and costs 25% of the target's maximum spirit, and restores the target to 50% of maximum health. This will also cost the cleric 40 mana.

Attempting to cast Raise dead with insufficient spirit points may result in either a spell failure or a spirit death for the cleric involved.

Chrism Raising

Using a chrism gem on the body, activated by WAVING it at the body, along with Raise Dead will allow the deader to retain some, even up to all, of his or her experience that he or she had when dying. The base chrism gem raise will allow the body to retain 50% of their experience, and every seed increase in Blessing lore after that retains an additional 5%, up to 100% at 65 Blessing lore ranks. The base lore required to create a chrism gem used in raising is: 25 ranks Spiritual Lore, Religion; 10 ranks of Spiritual Lore, Blessings; and 15 ranks of Spiritual Lore, Summoning. (This can be achieved at level 25 with 2x training in lores.)

Clerics with a F2P subscription cannot use a chrism without first purchasing a Resurrection Pass.

Messaging

When casting this spell, the messaging will be different depending upon the caster's CONVERT-chosen deity, except with the rare exception Well of Life (308) where it instead detects the target's deity. Expand the chart below to see all known possibilities. Any missing information can be added at the deity messaging page.

Charl
[1p] Moisture beads upon your skin and you feel your eyes cloud over with the darkness of a rising storm. Power builds upon the air, and when you utter the last syllable of your spell thunder rumbles from your lips. The sound ripples upon the air, colliding with TARGET's prone form, and a brilliant flash transfers the spiritual energy between you.
[2p] Moisture beads upon your skin as CASTER's eyes cloud over with the darkness of a rising storm. Power builds upon the air, causing the dead hair upon your arms to rise, and as CASTER utters the last words of her spell you hear the rumble of thunder in her voice. The rolling sound ripples upon the air and collides with your chest an instant before a brilliant flash suffuses you with raw spiritual energy.

[2p] Musically, though lyric free, CASTER begins a soft chant in petition to her deity. Rising from the air around her, the sweet sound of a lute begins to accompany her, and you discover that the very air seems alive with it. Reaching outward, CASTER touches you on the lips, and the blended sounds burst into a wordless chorus that surges between the two of you in a shower of colorful lights.

Eonak
[1p]Chanting slowly, your mind and body fill with strong sense of purpose as you gaze down at TARGET. Within your mind's eye you unravel the greater machinations of life and realize that the prone body lying before you is still needed to make them still work. Touching one finger to his forehead, you reignite the spark of life within him and return him to their greater function.

[3p] Chanting slowly, the sound reminiscent of cogs moving through a large machine, CASTER gazes down at TARGET with a sense of greater understanding in his eyes. Briefly touching upon TARGET's forehead, CASTER reignites the spark of life within him.
Imaera
[1p] Breathing slowly, you extend your senses towards the world around you and draw into you the very essence of nature. You shift your gaze towards TARGET and carefully release the energy you've drawn into yourself towards him. A rush of energy briefly flows between the two of you as you feel life slowly return to him.
[2p] Breathing slowly on the heels of her chanting, CASTER's gaze grows distant for several moments. With the grace of a doe lapping water at a brook, her gaze falls to you and your spirit feels strangely in tune with the natural order of life. A rush of energy briefly flows between the two of you as you feel life slowly return to your limbs.

Jastev
[1p] Emptying all breathe from your body, you slowly still yourself and close your eyes. You reach out with all of your senses and feel a film shift across your vision. Opening your eyes, you gaze through a white haze and find images of TARGET floating above his prone form. Acts of TARGET's past, present, and future play out before your clouded vision. With conviction and faith, you pluck a future image of TARGET from the air and coax he back into his body. Slowly, the film slips from your eyes and images fade away.

[3p] Slowly exhaling the last syllable of his chant, CASTER closes his eyes for several moments. Upon opening his eyes, hundreds of images appear to hover over the prone form of TARGET. Each image is different from that of the woman that lays lifeless. With firm conviction, CASTER pulls at one of the images in the air and slowly coaxes TARGET's ghostly form back into her body. The film slips from CASTER's eyes as TARGET is filled with the breath of life.
Kai
[1p] Deep and resonating, you feel the chant that falls from your lips instill within you with the strength of your faith. You crouch beside (TARGET) and gently lift him into your arms, your muscles swelling with the power of your deity, and cradle him close to your chest. Strength and life momentarily seep from your limbs, causing them to feel laden and heavy, and you are overcome with a sudden weakness. With a sigh, you are able to lay (TARGET) back down.
[2p]
[3p] Deep and resonating, you feel the chant that falls from her lips and watch as she is filled with the strength of her faith. She crouches beside TARGET and gently lifts him into her arms. CASTER's muscles swell with the power of her deity, and she cradles him close to her chest. Strength and life flood from CASTER's body into TARGET's, but CASTER suddenly seems weakened by the experience and is forced to her knees. With a soft sigh, CASTER still manages to lay TARGET gently back down.
Koar
[1p] With each passing moment during your slow chant, the thrum of power begins to flood your very being, pulsing through your veins like crackling electricity. The overwhelming sensation liberates your mind from the trivial details of mortal life. You fold your right arm over and rest your chin upon your hand while gazing down at the lifeless corpse of TARGET, contemplating his existence. Blinking once, you thrust your hand over TARGET, and the raw power escapes your body through your fingertips, flowing into him.
[2p] With each passing moment during CASTER's slow chant, his eyes flutter rhythmically.

Lorminstra
[1p] Thin at first, a fine layer of rime tickles your hands and fingertips. The hoarfrost smoothly glides between you and TARGET, turning to a light powder as it traverses the space between. The white substance clings to TARGET's eyelashes and cheeks for a moment before it becomes charged with spiritual power, then it slowly melts away.

Lumnis
[1p] Lifting your finger, you begin to chant and draw a series of conjoined circles in the air. Each circle turns to mist and takes on a different hue - white, blue, black, red, and green. As the last ring is completed, you spread your fingers and gently allow your tips to touch each color before pushing the misty creation towards TARGET. A shock of energy courses through your body as the mist seeps into TARGET's chest and life is slowly returned to his body.

Oleani
[1p] Rich and lively, the scent of wild flowers suddenly fills the air as you finish your chant, and you feel alive with the energy of spring. With renewal at your fingertips, you gently touch TARGET on the brow and revel in the sweet rush of energy that passes through you into her.

Ronan
[1p] Weaving your hands as you speak the words of your prayer, you are momentarily mesmerized by the silver nimbus that your movements create. The world around you takes on a dream-like quality and the nimbus at your fingertips turns into the image of a slender blade. Grasping it by the hilt, you plunge the silver light into TARGET's chest and feel the shock of impact tear the blade from your hands. As TARGET draws the breath of life into her lungs, the blade becomes ethereal and disperses into the air.

Tonis
[1p] A golden light surrounds your fingers as you weave an intricate pattern above TARGET's body. The fluid movement of your hands grows faster and faster with each passing moment, until they are nothing but a glowing blur. Ethereal coins materialize out of nowhere, clinking melodically together as they fall toward TARGET. You quickly snatch them out of mid-air with a single hand, and begin flipping them playfully at him, whose body quickly absorbs the coins. Each coin brings more color and warmth, until the final toss elicits a gasp of breath from TARGET.

Andelas
[1p] A feeling of deep lassitude overcomes you as your lips part in a soft chant that is no louder than a gentle purr. Deep within your body you feel as though something is stretching languidly and slowly waking. The world takes on a black and white hue as another, deeper purr joins your own and at its climax you touch TARGET on the forehead. You feel a deep contentment at the exchange of raw power that your touch causes within his, and you feel the cat within return to quiet slumber; the experience leaving you to feel slightly weakened.
[2p] Shadows shift and roll around CASTER as his lips part in a soft chant that is no louder than a gentle purr. Taking on definition and contrast, the shadows around CASTER morph into the semblance of a large feline stretching languidly and his eyes take on a yellow cast as he gazes at you. A deeper, louder purr accompanies CASTER's as he touches your forehead and the feeling of raw power that burst over you blinds you. When your vision clears the shadows are long and his eyes have returned to normal.

Eorgina
[1p] Weaving your hands into a complex gesture, you feel a power begin to fill your very being, and in your peripherals you see the dark hue of licking flames. You narrow your eyes so that only TARGET's prone form is in your field of vision. The last syllable of your spell falls from your lips, a sharp command at the soul beyond the lifeless body, and you feel raw energy course through you into TARGET.

Fash'lo'nae
[1p] As you begin to chant you notice the scent of dry, dusty parchment and feel a cool mist cling to your skin somewhere near your feet. You sense the ethereal tendrils of the mist as they coil about your body and notice that the world turns to a yellowish hue as the mist settles about your head. Focusing on TARGET, you feel the transfer of energy pass between you as you return him to life.

Ivas
[1p] Rolling green mist seeps from your skin and glides across your fingertips only to swirl through the air toward TARGET. As the mist connects to his prone form, you feel a surge of power dance across your skin and watch as he writhes beneath its erratic gyrations.

Luukos
[1p] As you begin to chant the air about you takes on the musty scent of an ophidian being shedding its skin and an emerald light clings to your skin. You feel the ethereal tendrils twining around your arms forming slender asps, which punctuate the words of your prayer with their hiss. Pointing towards TARGET, you feel the mist slither off of your arms and watch them slam into her chest at the exact moment that you feel your energy transfer into her.

Marlu
[1p] Murmuring softly, you call upon your connection with the Destroyer and feel your words twist into an alien, spidery chant. Dark shadows laced with crimson swirl before your eyes and at your forceful command sink into the chest of TARGET. The transference of energy is swift and immediate as you bind TARGET back into his body.
[2p] Murmuring softly, CASTER calls out in a harsh, voice that slowly dwindles to an alien chant difficult to follow. Rising from the ether on the heels of his harsh command, a pair of dark shadows infused with crimson light slam into your chest and infuses you with the raw energy of life.

Mularos
[1p] Murmuring softly, a mournful chant slips from your lips and you feel welts appear upon your wrists. Dipping them briefly, you smear the crimson liquid the leaks from these sudden wounds in a thin line down TARGET's face. Tingling with each second that your skin touches his, you feel the transference of your raw energy pass into TARGET and momentarily reel with the pain of its release. Slowly, the wounds on your wrists heal, though a lingering throb remains.

Sheru
[1p] Low and monotonous, you begin a chant to draw TARGET back to life and feel the deep shadows of the area rise to meet you. Falling upon you like a cloak of darkness, the twisting, inky blackness transforms into the visage of a jackal from a once forgotten nightmare. Sweeping from your body into TARGET's, the raw energy of your prayer transfers into her prone form. Slowly, the shadows recede back into the surrounding area.

[1p] Wrapped in an aura of chill, you close your eyes and softly begin to chant. As the cold air that surrounds you condenses you feel it slowly ripple outward in waves that turn the breath of those nearby into a fine mist. This mist swiftly moves to encompass you and you feel a pair of wings arc over your back. With the last words of your chant, you open your eyes and watch as foggy wings rise above you and gently brush against TARGET. As they dissipate in a cold rush against TARGET, you feel a surge of power spill forth from you and into him.

[1p] Guttural and primal, the words of your chant are torn from your throat with enough force to slice the very air. You clench your hands into tight fists and force your fingernails into the flesh of your palm. Within moments you are rewarded with the hot warmth of your blood filling them. Bending at the waist, you open your hands and press your right hand to Dead Guy's forehead, and the other to his lips. The power in your blood sends a surge of energy through your connected bodies, and within moments Dead Guy draws his first breath of life.

Waving his hands over you, you notice that tiny threads of spider silk are leaking from his fingertips, and you realize that you are being blanketed in a cocoon. Moments later, you feel the webbing seep into your skin, and with it comes a feeling of raw energy, which shocks you back into life. As you draw your first breaths, the webbing seems to have completely dissolved.
