    I felt a guide for the achievement needed a bit more detail so here goes.

    First a few pieces of background information. I started a fresh save file, and I have only played the game since the patches to repair the broken achievements have been active. This was my 4th save file, (I accidentally over wrote my Elder save file I was using to get the Deer Boss achievement so I deleted them all and started fresh).

    Solution: I ran to the right from the start, learning my first skill straight away as usual. I then proceeded to kill every good creature, (confirmed by a red 'flash' when they die), until I reached the first human you can talk to,
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    , this gives you a nice respawn point.

    At this stage my status was Immoral, press cn_Y to check, the red bar halfway from the centre to the left antler, (it only looks like a horn at this early stage). I then let the next bad creature kill me, came back as a beaver at our respawn point. Got to the first bad creature and let them kill me again, this time coming back as a fawn. Kept this process at the first bad creature going until the achievement popped as I became a beaver for the 3rd time.

    Total time was about 5 minutes. In a previous save I had definitely been reincarnated as a beaver, though I cannot categorically state why this was not counted, it could be because I had deleted the save...or that it has to be on the same playthrough. Also I did not collect the extra life to the left at the start as I assumed it would ruin the reincarnation, but it may not!

    Please message with any improvements.

    JayD101I was getting real annoyed because I couldn't get it to work. I now know what the problem was. I was trying to be super evil but all you have to do is kill a "good" animal and die in quick succession. I was trying to find "bad" animals to kill me and it just wouldn't work when I took too long to find one. It worked perfectly when I killed a rabbit and a fox was right there to kill me straight away. Next I killed a beaver and just jumped on some spikes. Worked perfectly!

    I did some testing and like you said it only works when you are on the "Dark/Left" side of the horns but for me anyway it only worked when I killed a specific good animal and died in anyway straight after. I would come back as whatever good animal I just killed.

    EverStoned77I think JayD101 is right,don't be to evil,I was about half (immoral) as you when I died & came back as a fawn & then a rabbit shortly after but after that I kept getting respawned as a fawn??? I also think it matters how you die so fire & hunger probably won't work,have to be predators...anyway as I finally came to the conclusion that a restart was needed I had used all my saves & so overwrote the save just used,this time I only killed 1 or 2 animals before being killed by a fox after which I was respawned as a beaver & the achievement popped? So seems it doesn't have to be on the same save...oh & finally,thanks for the help wave

    superling231I would like to add some additional info because some of these comments are partially incorrect or misleading. It seems once the player has a high enough "bad" karma level, when you die with no extra lives, (indicated by a horse head in the bottom left corner of the screen) the deer god will appear and say that you will be punished. This will cause the player to spawn as the last good animal that they killed. Once this happens the player needs to die again to turn back to a fawn. From my attempts I was only able to turn into another animal once I was already a fawn (i.e. a bunny can't turn into a beaver). Even though this is the case, I never had to kill another animal once I turned into the bunny for the first time. This means simply keep dying to appear as the last killed good animal and then fawn again for a total of 5 deaths, no killing required. When I got the achievement I spawned as the bunny 3 times and it popped. Again, I never needed to kill another good animal once I was transforming into the bunny.

    To do this you need to be evil and then die. Once you have died you will be reincarnated as one of the animals you killed.

    TropanThank You! I was beaver 3 times, so yea it is a bit misleading. Only a little evil, maybe had the bar 1/3 filed when I died each time. Cheers!

    KrankiPantzThis achievement finally popped for me today smile.
    Luckily I didn't have to re-download the game or create a new save, I just had to reincarnate 3 more times.

    Just got this to my complete surprise since I was trying to get the 3 different animals to be reincarnated as. You just need to be reincarnated 3 times. Don't even pay attention to the different part of the description. I came back as a beaver all three times
