The cleric restores life to a deceased creature. The cleric can raise creatures who have been dead no longer than 10 years per caster level. 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 creatures body at the time of death. (The remains of a creature hit by a disintegrate spell count as a small portion of its body.) In addition, the subject's soul must be free and willing to return. If the subject's soul is not willing to return, the spell does not work; therefore, subjects who want to return receive no saving throw. The subject loses a level (or 1 Constitution point, if the subject is 1st level) when raised.
Upon completion of the spell, the creature is immediately restored to full hit points, vigor, and health, with no loss of prepared spells.
None of the dead creature's equipment or possessions are affected in any way by this spell.
The character can revive someone killed by a death effect or someone who has been turned into an undead creature and then destroyed. Constructs, elementals, outsiders, and undead creatures can't be raised. The spell cannot bring back a creature who has died of old age.
Coming back from the dead is an ordeal. The subject of the spell loses one level when it is raised, just as if it had lost a level to an energy-draining creature. This level loss cannot be repaired by any spell. If the subject is 1st level, it loses 1 point of Constitution instead.
Material Component: Worth at least 500 gp.
