Probably the easiest way is to throw them into a pit of wights after using feeblemind to cripple their spellcasting. The wight killing the sorcerer will turn them into a wight, which is technically an undead creature, and will prevent them from being able to be resurrected if they die. For extra insurance you can use Enervation to insure that the person you'...

I'll give it a shot. You might be able to exploit the "Creatures died from old age can not be resurrected" rule, in conjunction with the Genesis spell. As the spell description states, you can determine the environment on your freshly-created demiplane: "You determine the environment in the demiplane, reflecting most any desire you can visualize, such as ...

I suggest casting Geas/Quest on the person with a command along the lines of "I will refuse to come back from the dead until I am alive and will not reveal that this is a command to anyone/anything, even myself" and then killing them or letting them die. The problem with this is that Geas does end at some point (1d/CL?), and can be broken by other means. ...

Could you permanently imprison/incapacitate her instead? Or, being level 20, rent a sphere of annihilation and chuck her in? In pathfinder the books state, "Only the direct intervention of a deity can restore an annihilated character."

For this answer, I assume the other players have access only to True Resurrection, or inferior magic. Let's see when this spell doesn't work: The target is dead since more that 10 years*CL. If you have a way to distract the team for 200 years, that can do it. It can't resurrect constructs. That seems difficult to exploit It can't resurrect undeads. This is ...

You are a rogue type, and clearly evil, so you need to think nonlinearly about this. There's a lot of spells and magical doodads that might/could help, but the easiest practically-no-cash-required way is to make them unwilling to return. "If the subject's soul is not willing to return, the spell does not work." So - kidnap a kid, or loved one, or ...

As a spy, you presumably have a lot of deception-related skills. One good option is to make it look like a suicide. People who commit suicide generally don't want to be resurrected, and won't come back if you try. If you also create a fake corpse (find someone who died of old age and thus can't be resurrected, and disguise their corpse as the sorceress's),...

If you're looking for permanent ways to get rid of her without the 'ease' of resurrection, there are a few options available to you. I'll only go over the ones that you could potentially purchase and don't need to have a pre-determined target, since you have magic-items as a tag. Note, I'm assuming you have the requisite UMD score to be able to use spell ...

I'm not going to address the mechanics of resurrection, since your question pretty much states "changing the resurrection system isn't an option". I am however going to proceed under the assumption that the physical body of the deceased comes back to life, and does not spontaneously appear out of thin air, alive and well. There are plenty of mechanical ...

Thanks to the further clarification that yes there's an attribute like constitution! You can borrow a mechanical method from AD&D 1e: the cost for dying and being brought back is permanent loss of a Constitution Point. That score also defines a statutory limit on the number of times being brought back from the dead can happen. Death has ...

There should be consequences happening in game already. How are the characters being resurrected? I find it unlikely that their corpses are just wandering over to the local temple and footing the bill. Do they have NPC allies resurrecting them? If so, then perhaps the players are too powerful to "just" be murdered, and an aspiring assailant would have to ...

If you haven't, read Jack of Shadows by Roger Zelazny. It takes place in a world where (some) characters return from the dead. BUT. They can do it only a limited number of times (a number each one knows for himself, but keeps a deep secret for obvious reasons), and when they rise, they rise in a special location, far from their places of power. They must ...

Briefly: Based on the content of the question, it sounds like resurrection takes five days. Can you make something important happen during those five days, which would be costly to the dead character or to her player by not being around to participate in it? But: Where did "changing the resurrection system isn't an option" come from? Your players? As the ...
