Corpse Candle

Corpse Candle

Shadow World Corpse Candle | Location: Jaiman | Publication: Shadow World Tales from the Green Gryphon Inn

Corpse Candles can only be found deep in the southern part of the moor, where an ancient battle took place at the end of the Second Era. There is a region where the ground is lower and more swampy, and there are many stagnant pools harboring these dangerous spirits in dense numbers.

The flooded graves of these unquiet spirits beget the alluring malice of these water dwellers. Illusion cloaks the corpse, giving it a fair appearance. The image seems to float just below the surface of the water, cupping a beckoning light in its hands. Those who look into the water risk falling under its spell, and diving into the fetid waters to drown.
