Spoken (translation: Ghosts) are apparitions of the dead, usually seen at night. Christian folk assumed the afterlife consisted of heaven and hell, while pagan beliefs claimed those who died would join the elves and become spirits of nature. Not much is certain about death, but one thing is known; many restless spirits wandered the world of living beings.

Wandering GhostsEdit

  • Some others lived a life of sin without making their way to hell (as was the case with Henricus Bornius, the Witte Wieven and a couple of murderers).
  • And of course there's mysterious apparitions that nobody really knows how to explain (Barneman or Ijzeren Veulen for example).
