Adventurers almost reflexively destroy undead on sight—but they best be wary for there are a rare few that rise up above their nature, seeking to redeem their corrupted souls and serve rather than slay the living. These unique undead are members of the Hands of Contrition, creatures that strive to redeem themselves in their post-mortal existence and help the world at large. Although only ever gathering in small groups their influence spreads far whether they defend the innocent, bolster a community's resources, or saving the victims of catastrophes before survivors perish. Includes the Mummified Guardian (CR 7), restore soul (a 5th-level enchantment), and the Hand creature template.
