Sorry, can't help it... We have a thread "return of the living dead", about how to bring back characters that dropped out?

Seen the latest PvP?

I did, some sort of gelatinous revive, I'm guessing a reincarnation spell.

Which reminds me of a 3.0 DnD game a friend played, the main human who is pretty much the King of the Human lands (or will be) died.  The druid goes, "I can just cast reincarnation tomorrow."  Now in 3.0 reincarnation allowed you to come back as just about any natural creature (it changed in 3.5 to strictly a humanoid race).  So my friend goes, just roll percentile... 36 comes up.  "Congratulations, you've just turned the King into  badger."

Still around in 3.5, but only on a natural 100 - "DM's Choice". And the DM's choice is always 'badger'.

You are an evil evil GM for doing that...

Did anyone else notice the difference ;D?

no it didn't actually happen, the through that she could turn him into a badger made her think that it might not be a good idea.

Badger King > Dead King in most circumstances.

Kind of, if I remember correctly reincarnation doesn't give you any additional abilities.  So the Badger King wouldn't have been able to actually talk or really rule...so it's a toss up really.

You keep your intelligence score and class features, though, so if the Badger King could wrap his paw around a pen, he can still issue decrees. And if he happened to be a mage-king, nothing changes except how big he is. :)
