The Codex of Araunt was a tract originally recorded on stone tablets by Lod, a bone naga and founder of the Eminence of Araunt.[1]

HistoryEdit

More than five-hundred years before the Year of the Ageless One, 1479 DR, the codex prophesied the slow expansion of the Eminence in the centuries that followed.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

The Codex contained several rituals and spells that allowed its user to:[1]

  • Create portals (called "deathways") that linked distant gravesites and mausoleums together across Laerakond and Faerûn,[2] and even between Abeir and Toril,[3] visible only to undead.[2]
  • Created undead, like direhelms and doomsepts, from the spirits of dead warriors.
  • Empowere undead with useful abilities.
  • Grant boons to the undead and blights on the living simultaneously.
