Hanging in the balance

Really silly to be obsessing over this, but it’s me, so duh.

Scott and I have discussed that if Mordecai doesn’t survive the arrows currently raining down upon him, there’s always the Reincarnate option. Here’s the possibilities of what body he could be reincarnated into.

The thing is, the point of choosing the races we did in Mosaic was to do something different. Hence, Mordecai is glimmerfolk. Bellos is tauran. Rashmali is benramen. Ka-Quindath is giant (Unearthed Arcana-style). While I can see the angst-opportunities inherent in waking up in a new body, I rather draw the line at kobold or troglodyte angst. I wonder if the location of casting reincarnate wouldn’t affect it. I don’t mean in a yuan-ti city. (NO!) I mean the proximity to Oubliette. I think a table of weird possibilites could be cool. Level-adjusted races, anyone? (Nah, I’m kidding about that. Probably too much loss of abilities, too complicated.)

It’ll be fine. 

Really. 

PS: I counted up. Using the house rule of death occurring at Con+Level, Mordecai has 51 hit points left. I have to say, being a different race would most likely get any additional Inquisitors off his back…Surely…
