You trap the soul of a being that has been dead no more than 3 rounds within the body of the deceased. Thereafter, until the spell has terminated, the deceased may be brought back to life if the body is made suitably whole (at least 1 hit point) and a restoration is cast upon the corpse. This spell has no effect on undead, constructs, creatures which were never alive, creatures whose spirits wish to remain dead, or creatures which have been killed by a death effect. The body must be relatively whole; the dusty remains of a disintegrate are not sufficient. Creatures revived from this spell lose one-half of their current levels experience rather than the normal level loss associated with being brought back from the dead. The target of this spell cannot rise as an undead being until this spell has ended.
