Playing RevenantsD&D Insider Article
A D&D Insider Exclusive Race!
by Matthew Sernett

D&D Insider brings you an exclusive new feature! "Playing Revenants" introduces a new race for your D&D game. Created by the Raven Queen to further her own ambiguous ends, revenants wander the world seeking to find their unfulfilled purpose. With a revenant character, you can bring one of your dead characters back to life, reborn with destiny to find!

A revenant arises not as an aimless corpse of a life lost but as the embodiment of a lost soul given new purpose. Such a creature walks in two worlds. Though the revenant moves among the throngs of the living, it has a phantom life -- a puppet mockery of the existence its soul once knew. The revenant is an echo haunted by the memory of itself.
