Yeah, I'd just have them come back at the same age, or someone could exploit it for cheap immortality. (Given the rate at which D&D characters tend to gain levels, the level loss is an entirely acceptable cost)
Hey! New D&D cult - Every twenty years, they kill and reincarnate their leader to provide immortality.
1) Leader wants 1000gp, decides to loot for it. (Simple, cheap)
2) Leader wants to die naturally, takes off. Cult in pursuit; The Holy Bob must be 'persuaded' of his importance.
3) Cult is after the wrong person; PC looks like The Holy Bob.
4) Someone is impersonating The Holy Bob.
5) Cult decides to make money selling its 'I Can't Believe It's Not Immortality!' services.
6) Due to 'bad' Reincarnation roll, party mistakes The Holy Bob for a monster.
7) Party decides to free the cult from the influence of The Holy Bob.
8) Party succeeds at freeing the cult; cult is now up to something else/related activities.
9) Party decides to take over the cult.
