Mac | 10 comments His soul is in a urn in his hidden tomb. Some tomb robbers show up and trigger the trap and he takes over the body of a wounded half elf girl (one of the robbers). His magic prevents the body from dying but isn't enough to transform it into his original body so he is stuck as a woman. He ends up creating an army of undead and helping a rebellion overthrow a kingdom. I remember it was part of a rather large book series.

Is this fantasy series for younger or older adults?

Is the main character similar to a vampire, ancient Egyptian, wizard, etc.? Does he have special powers?

Where is his tomb (e.g., mausoelum, pyramid, under the earth)? Has he been entombed/buried for centuries?

Mac | 10 comments its definitely geared towards an adult crowd. The main character does have some sexuality issues due to the whole body swapping thing.
The main character is a mage who specialized in battle magic so he knows all there is about warfare and spells to assist armies.
His tomb is underground, but he can move it around using an earth elemental. It only has a few rooms with his soul container, his dead wife's remains (one of his goals is to resurrect her she was a famous thief) and some things to attract tomb raiders attention. When the MC wakes up his old civilization is destroyed and it has been a very long time
