[RPG] Are there any new/alternate Reincarnate Tables


3.5 has countless Splat books with numerous new races, yet I have been unable to find any new/alternate Reincarnate Tables.

Do any (preferably "official" 3.5) alternate tables exist to address the new races? Yes, technically a roll of 100=other but that's a very slim roll to get some non-core race.

No, there are almost no official alternative reincarnate charts

It's likely the expectation is that the DM adjusts the chart based on his campaign. That's because, if I remember correctly, when Dungeons and Dragons, 3rd Edition was in the planning stages, one of the complaints fans of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 2nd Edition had was the necessity of cross-referencing a brand new 2nd Edition book with many other, sometimes out-of-print 2nd Edition books. To mollify detractors, the 3rd Edition design paradigm was to keep books as self-contained as possible, using references to other sources only when absolutely necessary. This continued into the 3.5 era, and explains, for example, why there're no comprehensive D&D 3.5 random encounter tables and, for example, why monsters who would benefit greatly from the feats Martial Study (ToB 31-2), Travel Devotion (CC 62-3), or Shock Trooper (CW 112) don't have those feats and, instead, have feats like Alertness (PH 89).

Reincarnate Variants

Published variants to the 4th-level Drd spell reincarnate [trans] (PH 270) include the following:

  • Kieth Baker's Dragonshard's column "Druids of Khorvaire, Part Two" presents an alternative reincarnation chart for the Eberron campaign setting.
  • The 4th-level Drd spell last breath [trans] (SpC 130) reincarnates a target that's been dead 1 round or less, and that target suffers no level or Constitution loss.
  • The 8th-level Drd spell cocoon [conj] (SpC 49-50) reincarnates the target, and that target suffers no level or Constitution loss. The spell's effect takes a week to kick in.
  • The 8th-level Drd spell dire reincarnation [trans] (Dungeon #100 Web Enhancement "The Lich-queen's Beloved") reincarnates the target as a nonhumanoid Monster Manual creature. This spell has its own chart. Note: Link goes to free PDF.
  • The 9th-level Drd spell true reincarnate [trans] (MW 96) reincarnates a target that's been dead a long time, and the target suffers no level or Constitution loss.
