World of Mara
This large book has vellum pages and a dark leather cover embossed with necromantic symbols and the words “Nominus Umbra” in Draconic. It contains instructions and diagrams of ancient necromantic techniques including a way for the user to tap into external sources of magic to raise armies of the dead. In theory even a novice could command vast numbers using this book. However, anyone using the book risks serious psychic trauma, and possibly insanity.
