The Bear Killer

Posted on January 16, 2017

On a one-shot goofy adventure with friends, my young brother took up the role of DM. I was testing a Gnome Wizard Illusionist I called Guizmo, who had a funny background—he was once a very talented Thief who, in a turn of bad luck, swapped his skills with a Wizard’s apprentice and became a Wizard himself.

Raise Dead, of course, states explicitly that it won’t regrow missing organs and will automatically fail if the body is missing any essential parts.

After the predictable jokes about the Half-Orc never having used his brain anyway (mind flayers!) we scraped together enough gold for a full-blown resurrection, only to be told that no one in the area could cast it.…
