Greater Gentle Repose
5th-level Necromancy (ritual)
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a handful of salt, a piece of flesh, which is consumed, and a piece of ice, which is consumed)
Duration: 30 days


You touch a corpse, other remains, or an undead creature. For the duration, the target is protected from decay. As well, it reverses decay, returning the remains or undead to what it looked like in life, even healing any missing limbs and injuries and ending all condition, including Exhaustion levels, curses, poisons, and diseases. If cast on an Undead creature, it looks like it did in life, though people can make an Investigation check against your Spell save DC to notice things, such as shallow breathing, a limp, strange behavior, pale skin, etc. Though it's unlikely anyone would think their Undead, they would more likely assume the Undead creature is simply unhealthy or strange. After the duration the remains or Undead creature rapidly decays to the point it was before this spell. The spell also effectively extends the time limit on raising remains, since days spent under the influence of this spell don't count against the time limit of spells such as raise dead.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th or higher you can choose an additional target for each spell slot above 5th and the duration is extended depending on the spell slot. At 6th level you can choose two targets and the duration is 60 days. At 7th level you can choose three targets and the duration is 90 days. At 8th level you can choose four targets and the duration is 1 year. At 9th level you can choose five targets and the duration is eternal, it last forever.
