I would like to apologize for the lack of posting. Things have been hectic at work and at home. Next thing I know the eleven days have passed!
At first I was truly concerned because the local cleric is only level nine, meaning that I was two days too late to have a Raise Dead cast on the blog. Luckily, after consulting with him I found out he had taken a mail order course and converted to 4th Edition, meaning he now had a thirty day buffer in which to cast the Ritual!
He did make me provide the components, which really sucked. You ever go to your local Bath and Body Works and ask for 500 GP worth of Mystic Salves? Trust me, it will get you plenty of odd looks.
