In 3.5 edition, Wizards and Sorcerers suffer an XP penalty if their familiar dies:
If the familiar dies or is dismissed by the sorcerer, the sorcerer must attempt a DC 15 Fortitude saving throw. Failure means he loses 200 experience points per sorcerer level; success reduces the loss to one-half that amount.
My question is whether you get that XP back again if you raise the familiar from the dead? The Player's Handbook only says this:
A slain or dismissed familiar cannot be replaced for a year and day. A slain familiar can be raised from the dead just as a character can be, and it does not lose a level or a Constitution point when this happy event occurs.
Okay, so the spellcaster's familiar doesn't lose a level, but what about the spellcaster?
