|This material is published under the OGL|
In most cases, death attacks allow the victim to make a Fortitude save to avoid the affect, but if the save fails the character dies instantly.
- Raise dead doesn’t work on someone killed by a death attack.
- Death attacks slay instantly. There is no chance for a character to stabilize and thus stay alive.
- In case it matters, a dead character, no matter how she died, has –10 hit points.
