Ghost

(image)

Recall of a ghost is one of the most difficult and effective necromancy rituals. There is no need to search for a corpse, there is no need to know who it was in the past life, and there is even no need to know what race he belonged since any soul which is in the Shadow World may be called to eternal service. However, sometimes when the ritual performed incorrectly or when power of caller is less then power of called, the wroth ghost may kill hapless necromancer. But despite the risk necromancers continue to recall ghosts. The reason isn't only that ghosts are stronger, faster and more skilled then most of living warriors and even not that successful recall of powerful ghost is indicative of incomparable talent, but basically that many necromancers paid their success with eternal loneliness. Unlike zombie-puppets or memoryless skeletons, ghosts have extensive knowledge about earthly life and afterlife and conversation with them can brighten up the loneliness of their master.
