Ex-Acolyte of the Reaper
If for some reason you decide you no longer want to be an Acolyte of the Reaper, not just stop leveling up in this class, but altogether no longer want to be a reaper/ grim reaper, you have to converse with your deity to see if they will let you, otherwise your soul is in their hands and they can end your life at that.
