GM Dictionary: Spirits #17
October is finally here! It is time for tricks, treats, and ghosts! This months GM Dictionary is centered around spirits and some of the different forms and aspects they have had over the centuries.
A sort of ghost for the ancient Egyptians. The akh was the reformed being created by the recombination of the ka and ba after death. Many aspects of afterlife were geared towards preparing an individual so that their akh could form and they would not die a second time.
This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
