This sounds like a job for the School of Necromancy. Try sending Master Rattle a pigeon at "NickofLirron" he is usually happy to help.

Hopefully this may help, found an entry in m beastiary that sounds fitting

Spectral Knight

Appearance & Mannerisms: The look of a Death Knight. Incorporeal until entering a fight. Have retained a sense of honour, often will duel an adventurer.
Armaments: Normally a sword, hand and a half or longer.
Method of Elimination: When it begins a duel, it becomes corporeal. Hit it as much as possible, enchanted weapons have NO effect. Once it’s armour is down…get a necromancer and some religious people
Other: May often have a number of spectral followers
Danger Level: High
Rarity: Very Rare

Thank you guild protector Fletch,
Any idea of its spell casting abilities? I am looking to brew mobility vials next month to protect the poor sod who will be fighting the thing.

Honestly not a clue. I wasn't the on too fight it. But a firm resolve and mobility would cover most things

Out of curiosity do we know when defeated does it vanish?

Just curious if known.

Apprentice Hirst,

I am sorry to hear that such an abomination has reared its head within your region. We recently suffered such a creature in Norvic; losing some damn good people to it and its hoard.

The shadow knight is an undead abomination whose heart is stored away from its body. This black cold heart must be laid to rest to destroy the creature we discovered to our sorrow. Having thought to it destroyed the creature on several occasions would return.

Find the heart, put down the knightly form and lay the heart to rest.

The creature we faced had the ability to inflict disease, choke you in a fashion similar to a wraith, strike you down, send you running in fear and other spells that I cannot recall.

We put it down once, it disappeared into nothing yet we fought it again later the same afternoon! It had a lot of hits in such a fashion that a team of well drilled fighters were needed to put it down each and every time.

From a religious standpoint I can say that my holy water had no obvious effect on the beast. I could see that my dismisses affected the creature, but I never found out how much mana was required to put it down in this fashion.

I pray that you have more success in fighting the creature than we did in Norvic.

May the Seven guard you,

Edmund.
Ulfcytel Bronzehorn,

Dwarf-at-Arms to Thane Thal'naz Galdoon.
Clan Steel-Hammer, Norvic.
