Important: Revenants are only available if you die in Living Erenel and cannot be chosen during Character Creation. Once you die, you unlock the option to become a revenant with your recently deceased character. You keep your level and equipment while losing your racial features in favor of the Revenant's racial features.
You have become a revenant, an undead husk of a previous soul that has clawed its way back from death for the sole purpose of revenge. You will kill those responsible for ending your life while feeding on the life essence of creatures slain by your hand. Once your revenge is complete, you may choose to return to the afterlife and stand before Bedoma or continue renewed vengeance, surviving off the living until the task is complete.
Healing and Resurrection
A revenant can withstand more punishment than most with powerful unnatural regenerative abilities. However, as an undead abomination, you are unaffected by healing magic and cannot be healed by your allies with spells. Healing and alchemical potions also have no effect on a revenant. After becoming a revenant, resurrection magic is unable to bring a character back. Only the Wish spell is strong enough to return a revenant to who they once were.
The revenant uses a currency known as Life Essence to stay alive. When the revenant performs a Killing Blow on an enemy of CR 1/2 or higher, they gain 1 Life Essence up to a maximum of 5 Life Essence. If the revenant reaches 0 Life Essence, they are immediately destroyed, leaving behind their items as their body turns to ash. Each week in Living Erenel (during the Weekly Update), the revenant loses 1 Life Essence. If the revenant makes a death saving throw and fails the roll, they lose 1 Life Essence. During death saving throws, if the revenant rolls a 1, they lose 2 Life Essence. If a Revenant succeeds on three death saves, the revenant immeadiately regains hit points equal to their Constitution modifier. (If a Revenant goes multiple weeks in Living Erenel without earning a killing blow, they could die during a Weekly Update.)
Revenants resemble the creature they were in life with a grotesque appearance similar to a zombie. Instead of lifeless eyes, the revenant's eyes burn with fury. The killing blow to cause a revenant's death never heals. This could leave the revenant with puncture holes, torn flesh, and other visible and prominent battle scars.
