If a player dies while online, his body will produce a blood pool in another worlds. The hosts of these worlds can then approach said blood pools and Messengers will raise small, engraved tombstones that upon interaction will reveal a red, translucid version of the deceased player, acting out every move before he died.
The purpose of Specters is to show players the last moments of another player. The player can then learn from the specter's mistakes and hopefully not die in the same way.
- The Specter will show the last 10 seconds of the person who died.
- Some players love to go to places with no enemies and kill themselves with either the Chikage, Logarius' Wheel, or Bloodletter to scare people into thinking there's a threat nearby.
