There is abundant life energy in the heroes of this world, and foul undead creatures can tap into this well of life and reduce it with a touch. Shane the Leeful, a cleric of Parsanos the Healer, discovered a difficult technique allowing those such drained to regain some of their lost life energy by tapping directly into the life of the earth itself. Healing Life Energy describes a long, complicated, and expensive ritual allowing one so drained to regain 1/4th of what they lost.

The ritual requires a good cleric of at least 3rd level (or a Paladin of 11th) to perform and requires at least a week’s contemplation and prayer while reading the book. In addition, 500 gp of rare unguents and herbs need be acquired. Finally the ritual can begin, taking a full day’s time. The chance of success is 70% +15% for every level of the ritualist over the minimum required for his class. A positive result regains 1/4th of all the experience lost by an energy drain while a negative result shows that the lost energy can never be regained but through the most powerful of magics.
