It’s not hard to understand why undead are feared and reviled by all cultures and all races. Mindless monsters, recently dead loved ones risen from the grave to feed on their family. The haunted spirits of those long-dead. Nothing in particular would make them especially endearing to the average humanoid. Their reputation is not undeserved, as they are products of curses or dark magic or other foul circumstances. Occasionally an undead arises who has retained his or her senses and sometimes even their memories despite their dark curse. Sometimes the undead are called back from beyond the grave to inhabit bodies which will no longer bear their mortal flesh but must soldier on anyways. Some are ancient phantoms who died in the pursuit of a noble cause, and who carry on until that cause or one equally worthy is fulfilled.

  1. Regarding the Ghast’s Spectral Form, is it meant to vary each time the ability is used? Or do you create one single effect during character creation and use that each and every time the ability is used?
