Lita takes Gentle Reader on a cemetery tour in the Enchanters of Sye world today. Ghosts walk in Sye, and specialty magicians called Sciomancers weave spells to lure, house, and speak with the specters.
Although the Church’s head magician, His Divine, banned the practice, a talented Sciomancer can call a spirit from the Fields of Yalu and trap it in a Ghost Amulet. Constructing elaborate amulets is a popular spell craft with Magic Guild workers.
Avid amulet makers create fanciful non-inhabited ghostly abodes with dozens of elaborate rooms inside. Hobnobbing with ghosts is risky. An amulet keeper must not wear an occupied amulet near the heart, or risk madness caused by the ghost.
