Liber Des Exanima: The Boneheaver for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition

 






Septimus Odrik, the necromancer lord of Haverhill and the author of the Infernemans, a treatise on undeath containing nearly twenty rituals for the creation of different types of undead, used a cousin named Deeter as inspiration for the Boneheaver. Apparently, Deeter, lord of the Barony of Afterfall would eat until he vomited in a golden bucket held by his servants so that he could continue to eat most of each day. Odrik observed this one Winterlight personally and he even referenced it after becoming a lich. The ritual requires a living ogre, the stomach of a chimera, as well as the arms and lungs of a gravedigger.
