DESCRIPTION

The subject of this powerful spell is unable to die from hit point damage. While under the protection of this spell, the normal limit of the negative constitution score before a character dies is extended without limit. A condition or spell that destroys enough of the subject’s body so as to not allow raise to work, still kills the creature, as does death brought about by ability score damage, level drain, or a death effect. The spell does not prevent the subject from entering the dying state by dropping to –1 hit points. It merely prevents death as a result of hit point loss. If the subject has fewer than hit points than negative its constitution score when the spell’s duration expires, it dies instantly.
