Playing Undead

Roleplaying Undead

Source Book of the Dead pg. 45
An undead PC has a different mindset and priorities than a living creature. Consider your character's place in both the societies of the living and undead. Consider what ordinary concerns an undead creature wouldn't have to deal with and what new ones might arise from their unliving state. For instance, you might deal with your undead stench with perfumes or magic, much as the undead in the courts of Geb do.

Undead Origins

Source Book of the Dead pg. 45
You can't become undead without dying first, so the manner of your death can both inform the kind of undead you become and further your story. If you're making an undead PC without having played the character while alive, think about who they were before dying and what the process of becoming undead felt like to them.
