Checked out the revenant race and it is, basically, The Crow. Not that that is a bad thing. It is one of my favorite movies. Resurrected in a new body by the Raven Queen. Too many similarities to count. While they are very Goth, they have nice potential. If you keep them in reserve and not allow players access to them right away, they present an interesting way of bringing back a beloved character, if a bit skewed. Even, as noted in the article, bringing back an entire group if they are TPKed. Fun stuff.
I've put together a few pieces of advice for integrating the new revenant race into Pathfinder, with a focus on reconciling it with the revenant monster presented in The Skinsaw Murders.

I, however, was not a fan of the crow, so that aspect of the Revenant didn't really do it for me.
But its a kind of sort of undead race, which is pretty fun on its own. I've always wanted to play a skeleton, and while this doesn't satisfy that, it hits me in the same place. You can pick up a feat to make it so you don't need to eat, drink, or breathe, which is pretty darn cool (one of the reasons I loved 3.x's air genasi was that they didn't need to breathe)
The fluff was... meh. The racial feats though had me drooling. I'd love to play a Revenant half-elf. And having two characters (Gran and Aden) in two different games that are both followers of the Raven Queen I'd love to have the chance to bring one of them back as a Revenant!

Eck, don't say it like that boss. Makes it sound like you have one or both of them in your crosshairs!
