"I once wrote that ghosts are entirely useless for science and that should not be bothered with. This remains true, but there is exception to every rule: contact with Olden Ghosts is quite interesting for any necromancer. These ghosts have lived for so long that they can tell stories about frightening His Deathliness King Lich when he was but a mortal child. On the other hand, conversing with an Olden Ghost requires much patience."
(From "Necrarium Tomeus" by Master Necromancer Barbaross the Deceased)
