You restore life and complete Strength to a deceased CreatureThe condition of the remains is not a factor. So long as some small portion of the creature's body still exists, it can be resurrected, but the portion receiving the spell must have been part of the creature's body at the time of death. (The remains of a Creature hit by a disintegrate spell count as a small portion of its body.) The Creature can have been dead no longer than 10 years per Caster Level.

In addition, the subject's soul must be free and willing to return. If the subject's soul is not willing to return, the spell does not work; therefore, a subject that wants to return receives no Saving Throw.

Upon completion of the spell, the Creature is immediately restored to full Hit Points, vigor, and health, with no loss of prepared spells. The subject of the spell gains one permanent negative level when it is raised, just as if it had been hit by an energy-draining Creature. If the subject is 1st level, it takes 2 points of Constitution drain instead (if this would reduce its Con to 0 or less, it can't be resurrected).A Creature who has been turned into an Undead Creature or killed by a death effect can't be raised by this spell. Constructs, elementals, outsiders, and Undead creatures can't be raised. The spell cannot bring back a Creature that has died of old age.

You can resurrect someone killed by a death effect or someone who has been turned into an Undead Creature and then destroyed. You cannot resurrect someone who has died of old age. Constructs, elementals, outsiders, and Undead creatures can't be resurrected.
