Description

You restore temporary life to a body that has been dead for less than 48 hours. The spell lasts for 24 hours, after which the target dies again. The target gains 1 point of Essence Destruction while under the effect of this spell; this point of Essence Destruction goes away when the target dies or is permanently raised from the dead (such as with Raise Dead (Spell)). The target still counts as a dead corpse (but not undead) for the purpose of spells that revive dead creatures, so a Cleric can cast Raise Dead (Spell) or a similar spell on the target even while this spell is active. Once a creature has been revived with Temporary Resurrection, this spell cannot be used on it again until it is permanently raised from the dead.
