World of Aloth
These black spikes have a single word inscribed in them in elvish “rest”. The spikes are extremely sharp and well crafted. They come in a set of 10 and are all 5 inches long. A spike can be impaled into a humanoid that has passed away. The spike makes the corpse immune to any effect that would raise it as an undead. When the spike is inserted into a corpse it loses its magic and the effect is permanently placed upon the corpse.
