Level 1:Never die.[edit]

Having been cursed by some unknown power you will no longer age and may never completely die. If your hp reaches 0 then make the death saves as normal however if you succeed on the saves you return to 1 hp and may continue to fight on your next turn. If you fail your death saving throws then you are considered dead for all intents and purposes except 24 hours from the time of death you return to life at 1 hp as if you had succeeded your death saving throws. Revive magic may be used to speed up this process however healing magic is useless. Your body is revived in the same location has it had died unless it was moved or ingested in which case you would revive in the place you were moved or in a pile of feces at the DM's discretion. If you were completely crushed beyond belief then your body has magically found a way out of the rubble where you could potentially escape from. If a limb has been severed it may be reattached by any means of magical healing given that the limb is placed where it should go. At 6th level, your revive time is decreased to 18 hours. At the 13th level, your revive time is decreased to 8 hours. At the 20th level, your revive time is decreased to 1 hour.

However, death still takes its toll either physically or mentally. Every time you completely die and are revived using the never die feature you may choose between decreasing on ability score of your choice, lose a language or lose proficiency in a skill or saving throw of your choice.
