Corpse Spike


This device looks like a short steel ice pick with an ebony skull handle. It is activated by inserting the pointy end into the lung of a corpse, either through the chest or the back. This item forces the spirit to speak aloud with the user, animating the corpseā€™s mouth and facial features.

Palaver with the Dead (In Co 15); R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Ind, Req: Mentem. You can speak with a human spirit through its corpse, so long as the corpse has not yet decayed into a skeleton, been buried in a Church burial, or gone straight to Heaven (as would a saint or a crusader). The spirit that you speak with is not compelled to tell the truth; you can, of course, find ways to coerce or trick it into doing so. All those around you can hear the voice of the corpse. (Base 5, + 1 Touch, + 1 Concentration) (+ 0 for one use per day)
