Minor rules query

This is just something that I've noticed in the corebook and which I thought should be ironed out here.

In the Clockwork's racial writeup, the Fragile Soul racial trait says that they "can't be raised or resurrected normally". That's it. So... what does this actually mean? You need specialised facilities to restore them (ala Steelhearts)? You can only bring them back with a Wish or Miracle? You can't bring them back at all?

Seriously, how did this get past the editor?

On a related note, the Antean and the Sun Pony writeups say that to take this racial variant, you must "give up the bonus feat at first level". I'm guessing that this is a case of the internal continuity getting flubbed and they're supposed to be "replaces Unique Destiny racial trait", like the Chaos Hunters, Clockworks, Doppelgangers and Gem Ponies?

Appreciate it for those who can clear this up.

You are entirely correct about 'the bonus feat' being 'unique destiny'.

As for clockworks, yes, they are kind of out of luck. There is no great clockwork factory to drag them back to and try to piece them back together.

Thank you for the prompt reply, Mr. Silver. So, Clockworks cannot be resurrected at all? ...Yeah, that's a downer. Thanks again.

At level 10+, a clockwork could take Field Reconstruction, the feat.

Beyond that, they are a cursed tribe.
