    Pretty much as it states. Give an GM alchemist a potion that they need to read a recipe or book for to craft/use a potion that resurrects a dead player. If they stone off the skill they can no longer use the item. No crazy ingredients just a timed consumable (same use time as a mage resurrection cast time).

    I like the idea. The idea I had would be like the spellweaving spell, once consumed it will res you from death within a certain time before it would need to be refreshed. That or it would function like the gem of salvation, getting a gump upon death offering to res you.

    Wouldn't this make the game easier though?

    Dead people cannot drink

    unless you are thinking like humm I dont konw, Gift of life or Sacrifice??:stir:

    :gun::gun:When you all stop learn how to play as the game is and stopp looking for a way out of death?

    Dying is part of the game if you get caught in an area were you cannot res in time to save your items perhaps you shold not have ventured to far into the wilds or get a friend or two to help you out.

    :stretcher:Dont give me that grap about playing when no one else is around.

    :gee:I have died in the lowest level of the basement of the trathian keep in fel and still WALKED out, ressed and made it back to my body before it decayed.

    I like the idea. As for the needed mats,we already have seeds of renewal available to us.As long as it makes sense,why not?

    By having a need to have 100 alchemy on a template to use a potion that takes as long as magery to use that revives a person?

    Or you mean by adding a consumable that (by all virtues) is the same as having another skill (spellweaving) that allows you to consume an item and be revived by it when you die (assuming you die with in the said time period.)?

    Just trying to get an understanding of your argument, or your sarcasm (really hard to tell sometimes on here)

    I don't think you grasped the idea at all.....since it doesn't prevent death any more than any other method used in the game. I assume you are responding to the Second post here, and not the first, but in either case this doesn't in anyway make the game different than how it is now, except replace x or y skill with z skill and viola.

    Re: Dead people cannot drink

    ...you know it was just an idea to make 100 alchemy a little cooler right? You also read the part where it was mentioned that it should require you to have 100 alchemy right? How is this so wrong of an idea? It's no different than having a gem of salvation except that only GM alchemists can use it.

    This wasn't meant to be a potion that is a self res. It's a potion to resurrect a fallen comrade.

    A non criminal flag potion comparable to Gift of Life would be nice too though. Was just thinking of making a new way to resurrect people with an already existing skill.
