 ===Resurrection=== ===Resurrection===
-//The exact effects for resurrection still need to be tweaked, but this is a pretty good guide of what should happen if a character dies in the wilds.// 
 Sometimes, when people or pets die in the wilds, they mysteriously return. However, their eyes have a strange glow, their skin changes color, and they often behave erratically. Whenever something dies in the wild, roll a d100. Because this roll represents a process that happens over the course of several hours, or possibly even days, it cannot be altered by methods such as luck. Depending on the exact roll, the character will experience a variety of effects. If the character'​s body is being carried around/​protected by another character, then ignore all effects in which the body or soul is consumed, stolen, or possessed. Sometimes, when people or pets die in the wilds, they mysteriously return.

-  * 62-75: The character is resurrected ​and possessed by demon. Their eyes glow red or yellow, and their skin grows redder and darker. Roll up the demon'​s stats. The demon will fight for control if the character attempts to exorcise them, acts in a "​good"​ manner, or if it sees an opportunity for evil (contested will check). If the player visits a temple of any god and the exorcism is in line with the god's philosophy, they can receive an exorcism. (For instance, Taurusians would not care to exorcise the demon unless it related to his fields of information or secrecy, whilst Ra would do it unconditionally.) Some priests may also approach the character and offer an exorcism, whilst particularly righteous ones may even force an exorcism on the character+  * 62-85: The character is resurrected ​as mindless undead
