Nightmares from beyond the grave: Hushed voices tell spine-chilling tales of encounters with the walking dead and other unliving horrors. No other creatures have evoked such fear and fascination as this dreadful menagerie of malevolent spirits and mindless shells. Libris Mortis: The Book of Undead also provides new rules, feats, spells, and prestige classes, along with a host of new monsters and monster templates. They really got it right with this one; while lots of supplements over the years have taken an in-depth look at the undead, very few have gone beyond game statistics to explore what motivates them beyond sheer hunger. Understanding and riffing off of that background can help a DM propel her adventures from pedestrian to inspired.

Description "A mighty river of fog streams forward like an evil waterfall, swollen with storm and spray. Accompanying the shape is a susurrus of dreamlike voices that murmur, cry, and rail against some terrible fate.
Slender tendrils of mist extend from the mass, patting and feeling for sustenance. Since then, that creature has spawned itself many times over. A dream vestige is a hunter; it hunts for other creatures to incorporate into itself—mind and body, living or undead. Thus, even the undying have cause to fear a dream vestige, which preys on its own. It stalks prey on rooftops, behind walls, or under floors, unseen by its victims.
Combat A dream vestige uses every ability it has at its disposal to disrupt and crumble the minds and bodies of the living, seeking to draw ever more creatures into itself.
