Skeleton Musician

At Wesnoth Golden Age only expensive-equipped magical laboratories were able to create magical artefacts. So, the Alduin Academy supplied the Royal Army with relics for undead extermination. The commonest of these relics, known as ''holy amulets'' were so numerous that its still can be found ubiquitously at Wesnoth even after three hundred years. At Silver Age magic science has stepped forward so mush than artefacts could be created in laboratories, constructed with available funds. Necromancers immediately took advantage of this opportunity and equipped skeletons with magical relics. Cursed fife is the most suitable tool for skeletons due to its wide range and universal efficiency. Sounds of cursed fife cause dizziness and disorientation, but doesn't affect undead.
