Can Gentle Repose be renewed?


Rules Questions


PC died last session in my game. We're playing Kingmaker, and they don't have a cleric powerful enough for any Raise Dead spells yet (all at level 4), so they have to ride at full speed to another city.

With the weather and a caravan, it could take them around a week.

So a question has come up. For them, Gentle Repose is a 4 day spell. At the end of those 4 days, can it be cast again?


Yes you can. I don't see an text to imply otherwise.

It can be cast so that the durations overlap. When one ends, the other casting maintains the body.

Absolutely. Moreover, there are magic items which will keep the effect perpetual (viz. the sihedron medallion in The Godsmouth Heresy)


Cool, I was leaning towards yes, but wanted to check before I made a precedent. Getting this wrong could have been a major problem.

Thank you!
