PostSubject: Rules Question - Restless Dead "Reanimation"   Thu 11 Sep 2014 - 2:39

Hi, query about the "Reanimation" spell.

Reanimation, Difficulty 5
At the spoken command of the Sorcerer, the dead rise to fight again.
One Zombie that went out of action during the last hand to hand combat phase immediately returns to
battle. Place the model within 6 of the sorcerer. The model cannot be placed straight into hand to hand
combat with an enemy model. This spell can be used on Grave Guards and Wights to restore 1 lost wound
(should they have more than one). This cannot be used to bring Scarecrows, Grave Guards, Wights and
Skeletons back to life if they are taken out of action the way Zombies can.

Says it can restore a wound on a Grave Guard or Wight, but doesn't state the range, how close the Grave Guard or Wight needs to be. Only gives distance for summoning a new Zombie.

The only range listed is how far away the risen zombie needs to be. Seems you can reanimate your undead from anywhere.

Sure looks like you can restore the Wound from anywhere. Just remember that you need Line of Sight though. Perhaps it is a 6" spell though, as most Healing spells are somewhere between 2" - 4".

It is very limited in that usage (the Grave Guard or wight has to have two wounds before it can have any effect), so giving it an unlimited range within LoS does not seem at all overpowered.

Yeah, I'd go along with unlimited range and LoS on Reanimate's healing ability.

Why Line of Sight? It doesn't say it needs Line of Sight, I thought the rules state spells aren't line of sight unless stated.

"Q: If a spell does not specifically state that Line Of Sight is needed, do obstacles or
buildings prevent a model within range from being hit?
A: No. [Tuomas, Mordheim Yahoo! eGroups' FAQ]"

Ah, you are correct. I thought I had read in the rules that Line of Sight was required unless the spell was a PBAoE effect.

However, in re-reading the rules regarding targeting, there's nothing there. That being the case no LoS needed.

What rule set is this spell from? The Core Rulebook doesn't include the healing aspect for wights and such.

Yeah. Sorry about the whole LoS. We implemented it in our group because it simply made sense due to some ridicoules situations. We've found spells much more balanced and fun after that implementation, so I'd recommend it.

@MDP... The rules are from the Restless Dead warband in Border Town Burning.
