    I was just re-reading the Player`s Secrets of Ilien book today, and I came
    across something interesting that I had forgotten about. There was
    apparently once an awnsheigh called The Lich, that was driven back to the
    Shadow World after doing plenty of damage. There is also reference to
    "minor undead awnsheighlein".

    I never really thought of that. Has anyone actually used undead minor
    awnsheighlein before?

    How do you guys handle awnsheigh encounters anyway? For me, awnsheigh
    encounters would tend to result in PCs hunting down and killing the
    awnsheigh before it can do anymore damage. The encounters tend to be fairly
    balanced. Rarely is the goal to "drive off" the awnsheigh; but the Shadow
    World is a nice tool for that sort of thing. After all, banishing an
    Awnsheigh (somehow) to the Shadow World is pretty much just as good as
    killing it. So undead awnsheigh are useful because I can have truly
    powerful awnsheigh that the PCs have no hope of beating, but give provide
    some condition that can send it back to the Shadow World. This even allows
    me have a recurring villain (something that`s *really* hard to do in a
    roleplaying game -- I`ve tried).

    I just wondered what you`re thoughts were on awnsheigh encounters.

    I always thought that any undead awnsheghlien were in fact The Lost, Azrai's old spellcasting servents.

    Maybe they meant Spectral Awnsheghlien (from Blood Spawn)?
