Bio:

Ghost Horses are undead steeds appearing with rent skin, revealing bones beneath, and having all flesh removed from their equine skills. Ghost Horses do not readily tolerate riders of good alignment; such riders must keep a close watch on their mounts, and make a DC 21 Will check when mounting and every hour thereafter. At any rate, they can only be ridden with the specially enchanted bridles and saddles, equipped when they are raised.

Ghost Horses are more fragile seeming then flesh-and-bone warhorses, but are aggressive and formerly well-trained warhorses in life. They dislike natural sunlight and attempt to escape its direct rays. They can only be ridden on cloudy days, or at night without becoming unmanageable and trying to throw their bonds and riders.

Created from the corpses of fallen warhorses killed in battle, or sacrificed to dark gods such as Sarrok – The Gray Slayer or Agrik – The Harbinger. They are then prepared with necromantic rituals; the skin and flesh of their heads are removed to expose their skulls, and they are then washed in the waters of a well consecrated to a dark power and shod in black cold iron quenched in virgin blood. Only then can they be raised using an Animate Dead Ritual. The ghostly hoofprints of a Ghost Horse freeze and blacken the ground they touch, leaving behind frost. They slowly blacken and harm any woods or gardens growing nearby their lairs/stables.
