The spell mentions several keywords that to me imply it is indeed not forever
a reduction.  Again I'll take a good example.  Princess Bride.  A great fun
flick.  When he was resurrected he was weak and could barely stand.  This
is how the spell works.  When you come back your weak and thus the
reduction in all stats.  I'd play it through a increase over time like
Energy level
or a healing type formula but depends on the GM.
