Recover body of an older character


Pathfinder Society

Sovereign Court

I had a character with enough faction points for a raise dead involved in a party wipe. My character was deemed removed from being able to play due to him being "lost". Since then, the rules for having your body recovered have been added. Can I spend the prestige points (5 + 16) and bring the character back now, even though the rules were not there to do so then?

Thanks!


I don't see why not -- there isn't a real-world statute of limitations on doing so, as far as I can tell.

I don't see a problem with it. If I was GM'ing a table and you wanted to play after spending the PA, I'd certainly let you. It sounds like you kind of got the shaft, anyhow, since Josh had indicated at one point (before there was a mechanic for it) that if a TPK or some such happened, the Pathfinder Society sent agents to retrieve the bodies, anyhow.

We did get the shaft from that GM. It was at DragonCon 2010, and looking over the module after the fact, the NPCs did impossible things(Blind Oracle seeing people and casting fireballs 130 ft. away). It was a particularly lethal module, and if I had it to do over, we wouldn't have played it at all. The only group that GM had survive it ran out of time before the bad part.

I remember that also. I am refusing to sit at any of his tables this year. Being told you cant earth glide in sand plus reading the mod myself afterwards and realizing how much he changed to increase the difficulty to get the TPK isnt something I am willing to put up with two years in a row.

Also we were told our bodies were non-recoverable as they had been eaten.
