Average score for sheer originality....no higher due to my doubts of actual playability.

This is crazy. Very interesting ideas hidden here though.

What happens to captured Mercenaries?

For the great ideas!  This is the most interesting themed variant I've
seen.

However, I think it might be better for playability by enlarging all of
the boards (save Limbo), with some rules adjustments, and maybe more
pieces.  I think this variant is certainly worth some more development.

Pretty interesting idea, though a high priest in the hall of truth could stop any enemy piece from reincairnating(I think) if the owner of the high priest gets enough spare turns to position and reposition it.

The prospect of reincarnation might seem hard to acheive, but then again, that's how it is in Egypt, eh? Only 1 question - does the 12 Hours redemption rule apply to Sethlings?
