Silverwraiths were incorporeal undead that could only be created in areas of particularly potent negative energy.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Appearing similar to ghosts, silverwraiths manifested as skeletal forms with hints of the clothing they wore in life. Their bodies were translucent and incorporeal, emitting a soft blue glow.[3]

A silverwraith lacked a physical form, so their ability to interact physically with the material plane was greatly limited. Along with the usual differences between incorporeal undead and the living, silverwraiths were also impervious to the effects of cold, electricity, and polymorphing.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Silverwraiths were able to harm living creatures with the merest touch of their limbs and although they had a number of resistances and abilities they were especially potent against spellcasters. In addition, they still retained all the powers, experience, and special qualities they once had in life.[1]

Create Spawn
One way that silverwraiths could propagate was if an arcane or divine spellcaster was slain by the backlash negative energy of their magic absorption power. The defeated spellcaster would then rise as a silverwraith in one to four days.[1]
Negative Energy Touch
The touch of a silverwraith could pass through even armored foes to inflict serious wounds upon an enemy.[1]
Magic Absorption
Much like a rod of absorption, a silverwraith could absorb the energy of spells. However, rather than storing that energy, a silverwraith would convert it in a wave of backlash negative energy redirected at the original caster.[1]

PsychologyEdit

The personality and experience of a silverwraith was undiminished in undeath.[1]

HistoryEdit

On Marpenoth 2, 1372 DR, the drow priestess of Kiaransalee, Irae T'sarran, used the power of the Undying Temple and her claw of the revenancer to transform the Archmage of Maerimydra, Duneth Wharreil, into a silverwraith.[4]
