The last two lines in the description of the Reverse Life force ritual states.

"The amount of curing is equivalent to the amount that it is normally healed; therefore if a creature normally was harmed double by healing and healed by necromancy, it would now be healed double by Curing and harmed by Necromancy. "
--- By the wording of this, would a player who transformed themselves into a greater undead, then reversed their life force be healed for double by curing, and take necromancy normally, considering an undead normally takes double from healing?


"Undead affecting spells have no additional effects on Living beings and normal effect on Undead under the effect of this ritual."
--- Undead affecting spells is not clearly defined, and raises some questions.
  1. As all Cure spells have double affect upon undead, does this mean they still affect undead under the effects of a reverse life force normally, or are Cure spells not specifically "Undead affecting"?
  2. Does undead affecting specifically mean (Cure Disease/Disease, Harm Undead/Help Undead, Sanctuary/Desecrate, Turn Undead/Control Undead, Earth Blade, Restore/Wither, Destroy Undead/Create Undead, Purify/Drain & Earth Storm)?

#1: The Reverse Life Force ritual states:

"The amount of curing is equivalent to the amount that it is normally healed; therefore if a creature normally was harmed double by healing and healed by necromancy, it would now be healed double by Curing and harmed by Necromancy. "

This should clearly answer your question - yes, if you are healed double by Necromancy and under the effect Reverse Lifeforce, you would then be harmed double by Necromancy (and vice versa). Please reference the official online ritual text before posting questions about Rituals: https://alliancelarp.com/forum/pages/rituals/

#2: Reverse Lifeforce does not change whether a character is Undead or Living (just like Spirit Storing into a Golem does not change a PC's player race for a Race Reaver). If you are an Undead who is under a Reverse Lifeforce, you will still be 'slowed' by a Cure Disease and 'harmed' by a Harm Undead. If you are Living and under a Reverse Lifeforce, you will not be harmed by a Harm Undead nor will you be unable to attack someone who is Sanctuaried. Having a metabolism (or not) and being Living (or Undead) are different things.

We recommend asking questions in the Marshal Questions forum before posting them here in the ARC forum. This forum is intended for questions that Marshals are unable to reach a consensus on in the Marshal Questions forum.
