    I think not aging covers it, honestly. Your cells are just coming back as the exact same.

    I would say that the clause is that you can die but it can't be of a natural thing, like aging. Your body is not an unbreakable fortress but it's definitely a thing out of time. You can still OD and choke on spaghetti but you're not gonna die because too much sun. You'd have to be deliberately attempting to die.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Can I cut a side deal? I just want to go back to high school and fuck all those girls I used to think were too chubby.

    That's weird. If you wanna nail high school girls from back in the day, I'd say the Rebirth thing but with the clause of repeating the same timeline. Second chance, basically.

    Repeating the same timeline over and over again would eventually get old as fuck. Like, after a million years worth of play.

    Thats true. Knowing what we know now, high school would be like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Can you suicide and keep getting reborn and are we aware that we will be reborn?

    Take original deal, randomization. You could be born in an actual D&D fantasy. Or you could be born in the fucking 40's as a black kid.

    Once you are dead, you are done. No rebirth. You hit the grave, you are gone. You are aware of yourself once you turn a month old.

    Thats a tough one. Not sure I could truly exploit this without knowing that its free of consequences but I'd be willing to try
