Life Ray — This miraculous device, introduced just before the start of the wars, is able to revitalize the dead. When used, there is a 50% chance that it will bring new life to the dead, if used within 24 hours of the victim's death. This device allows only one attempt to raise a given individual. If this fails, no further attempts may be made. A character resurrected by the Life Ray must re-roll all ability traits. He does, however, retain his memory.
Needless to say, life ray machines are quite rare.
