Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Resurrect any creature (path of suffering - after life). Way to many ASIs. Also seems to let you do whatever you want if a creature fails a saving throw against you.

Soul Seeker[edit]

Your walking home and the sun has almost dispersed all the way behind the mountain, out of the corner of your eye you see a movement. You whip around heart pounding, this be what he meant? Weeks earlier you had killed a powerful sorcerer with flames from the under-relm and the final wish he made was that a hunter of power and death would hunt you down and kill you with haste and efficiency. Even until that moment you had feared that the wish would come true and now you were sure. This hunter is called a soul seeker; Only after its target is dead, it can be free, as long as the one wished to die is exterminated.
