As it's nearly the end of the day here, I anticipate seeing several undead here come to life and shamble home.

More like creative bullshit

and yeah I meant wights, but wasn't thinking straight
Too set in his ways to ever relate
If he could set that aside, there'd be heaven to pay
But weathered and aged, time swept him to grave
Love conquers all? Damn, I'd say that area's gray

Shadowspecter, what exactly is this project of yours about? Are you trying to give some form of overview on undead, or the impact they've had on our culture? You should think through exactly what you want to say with this project. Just stand there and talk about undead will make very little sense to classmates who neither play games where you meet them, or have any interrest in stories containing them.

In any case, you should look for sources on mythology, folklore and similar rather than, say, DnD to explain undead, as popular culture often uses adaptations these etc. to make it fit into what they're trying to present. Otherwise, the information might not be completely accurate. Popular culture should still be mentioned, as it is mainly here that the undead "live on" in the Western world. Horror movies are good examples of modern undead, and something most people can relate to.

Good luck on your work!
Nothing is impossible, it's just a matter of probability.

Even so, Shakespeare didn't have wraiths or liches, the most thought of undead during that time were just ghosts.

Although I am curious, how does this tie into your project shadowspecter?
