Burnbones appear similar to the blazing bones found in Myth Drannor, but are selected high level members of the church of Cyric who have been transformed with a portion of his power by Cyric himself.
Usually proudly wearing a holy symbol of Cyric these undead monstrosities can call upon all the clerical powers they commanded when they were still alive and now do so with even more efficiency while their mere presence burns with the power of Cyric's dark fires. The infusion of divine power dissolved their puny mortal frames and turned them into the blazing glory of the Dark Sun that are the burnbones.
Burnbones exist only to serve the greater glory of the Prince of Lies, bending to his every whim, suffering insufferable pain and anguish if they even think about doing otherwise.
