Product Description

The city of Manifest rests atop ruins from ancient times and far above the entrance to the land of the dead. Here, the world of the living is shared equally with the deceased, who linger in physical form before finally passing through the Veil. Whether currently living or dead, residents and visitors are assured of an eternity of action and intrigue. Ghostwalk contains everything needed to run a stand-alone campaign in and around the city of Manifest, or to integrate it into an existing world, including rules for playing ghost characters and advancing in the new eidolon and eidoloncer classes, several new prestige classes, over 70 new feats and 65 new spells, three complete adventures, four highly detailed encounter sites, and fourteen new monsters and templates.

Ghostwalk is one of the latest expansions for the ever popular Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition. Ghostwalk includes everything you need to give any character a new lease of "life" as they continue to adventure, even after death.
It also includes new feats for ghosts for each of the many ghost paths, like the Traveller and the Poltergeist, as well as feat for the living. This expansion can be played as a stand-alone world or it can be integrated into your own world. Either way, it would be a perfect addition to any D&D library.

Ghostwalk, role-palying in the afterlife 6 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Okay, you have that 20th level character you been playing for over 5 years, and although it would seem impossible, you flub a saving throw and something completely unexpected happens... your character gets killed! Now I never seen it happen in all my years of gaming, but I heard stories of gamers actually starting to cry because their greatest character gets knocked off. But cry no more... your character can now live on as a ghost and be more of a badass than he ever was. Ghostwalk is a new "campaign option" rulebook, that runs as a stand alone campaign setting, or a new realm that is easily integrated into an existing campaign. Ghostwalk takes your players and their characters past the Veil of Souls into the city of the dead where they continue on as champions of the afterlife. The book features over 70 new feats, a bunch of new monster templates, bizarre magic items, and tons of new spells like "Charm Undead" and is a must of any campaign.

Ghostwalk as a Meta-setting 20 Oct. 2003
By Robert Blank - Published on
Like a lot of newer D&D stuff, Ghostwalk's application in games is up to the player. As a standalone game it is fair, though its ties into the D&D cosmology poses more questions than it answers.
It is best used as a meta-setting the same way that Planescape or Spelljammer are used. Making a few assumptions helps this game truly shine and answer some of the great unanswered questions of the D&D Cosmology:
Assumption 1-
Each prime has a "ghostwalk" leading to a distinct True Afterlife maintained by the gods of their world.
Assumption 2-
Souls that "willingly discorporate" in the True Afterlife are lead into the Well of Souls and out into the Planes.
Assumption 3-
Demihumans everywhere go through the Etherial voyage mentioned in the book, however in most primes the etherial boundary is too thick for ghosts to manifest through sheer will--so they either remain stranded or embrace the seductive power of the Negative Energy Plane into themselves, becoming corrupted into undead forever, even in the True Afterlife.
This resolves a lot of questions. What's the difference between the dead and undead and why do the undead have a connection to the Negative Energy Plane?
With infinite Prime planes, why isn't the flood of souls to the Outer planes neverending?
How do dead folks get to the planes?
If Ghostwalk is it's own cosmology, why does it mention the planes and intrinsically D&D characters like Orcus?
But yeah, Ghostwalk is a lot of fun. The entries on the various cultures are awesome, the listing on the city of Manifest is great. It contains the origins of the Yuan-Ti, which by itself is reason enough to get the book. The authors really put did put some quality effort into this--the writing is very polished and the artwork is very impressive on the whole. The absence of a name for the game world is very strange, as I would like at least a suggestion of what to call the world where this all happens, but otherwise an excellent setting.

Ghostwalk Campaign Option: Alternative Afterlife 4 April 2007
By RavenGraygem - Published on
It's happened to nearly every D&D player at some point; they run into something nasty, and it kills them. It used to be that the standard procedure was to either roll up a new character or hoof it to the nearest source of resurrection magic.

But now, a third possibility exists: having the ghost of the slain character return to finish the fight.

Ghostwalk offers players and DMs alike rules for continuing the fight after death, and a new setting where it all takes place. Included are new magic items (along with suggestions for using named items), spells, and monsters. There are also numerous new feats, many of which are meant for ghosts and allow them to focus their abilities along one of six different "haunting" paths.

There are even a few adventures and adventure ideas that incorporate the new material, right in the book.

I liked:

1) Originality. This setting is definitely interesting in terms of concept.

2) The setting itself. It offers some interesting new lands and cultures to incorporate into your world.

I didn't like:

1) The lack of an included map showing the lands featured in the book. While there is such a map included in the web enhancement that updates the Ghostwalk material for the 3.5 rules, not having it handy in the book itself is a problem.

2) The lack of a "ghost" class that allows psionic characters to advance after death. While the eidoloncer could be modified for this, there isn't even a suggested means of making the alterations needed.

3) The vagueness of how Ghostwalk's afterlife fits into the existing cosmology. While there are clues throughout the book that suggest the state of affairs presented in Ghostwalk are the result of an accident, even these aren't expanded upon in any meaningful way.

Overall, I would recommend this book as being worth at least a once-over to the curious.
