"The battle raged on for days. On the sixth day the great warrior fell as the sun set. The next day, as if by the hand of the gods themselves, the warrior arose, even more powerful than before and radiating the light of heaven."
This spell is quite powerful and is reserved for times of dire need because of the material components needed to cast it. Precious, precious Legendstone. Calling on the power of the gods the caster may sacrifice a piece of Legendstone in exchange for the life of a fallen ally. The dead creature may only be brought back if they have fallen in battle and only after a night has passed since their death. Any entity that's soul has ben destroyed or has witnessed the Phedigurum cannot be brought back from death by any means, even by a deity.
After the spell is cast, the moment that dawn breaks the subject of the spell is resurrected on the spot where they died. The subject returns to life with extraordinary vigor (full hit points, no negative status effects, damage of all kinds completely healed, any sickness/curses/infections completely removed). Additionally the subject returns even more powerful than before their death, coming back with +1 permanent levels. Furthermore, the subject radiates heavenly power causing every item on their person to gain a +1 magical enchantment and light radius 5 ft. as well as +1 to attacks, damage and AC for 24 hours.
When the spell is cast the magic force is completely sucked from the Legendstone transforming it into a lump of burnt, ashy coal.
Material Component: A sprinkle of holy water and a 1 oz. Legendstone (Value: 50,000 gp.)
