It has been a long while since I have written down my progress. I have been occupied with matters of academic importance – frivolous writings which do nothing but to massage one’s ego must wait.
Since leaving the desert, I have penned “A Treatise on Mummification and the Creation and Destruction of Such Undead”, while under the tutourage of Erdman Douglas of the Cormyrean College of High Magic.
At the cost of some magic items which were of little use to me, I have had access to laboratories and libraries which have furthered my research and allowed me the quiet and space to write my Treatise.
My researches into the creation of undead has been interesting. I have found that given the right circumstances one can create un-intelligent undead that are not evil in nature. The procurement of a suitable corpse, the casting of the spell, and the motivation of the caster must all be with true and untainted intent. If one were to cast this spell with evil in his heart, it is a dark path that he has chosen to tread.
