A person completely dominated by a particular emotion, even if only temporarily, can bring about a permanent change in the World of Dreams, one which survives his death and all memory of him. This is how ghosts are formed: a person dies leaving his emotional state behindusually it is terrorbound up with a bit of his personality and knowledge. This memory lingers, like a very minor fiend, troubling the dreams and perhaps the lives of those present at the death, or visiting the place of the death. The more powerful the original person, and the purer his or her emotional state, the more powerful and persistent the ghost will be. Fortunately, ghosts are rare, but still battlefields are terrible places for years after battles.
