Third Age 5654: When an herb witch is offered the opportunity to awaken the fallen soldiers from Caithwood, she attempts to use a necromancer's stick before being stopped by Sethvir, who describes the stick as "an unclean implement with which to recall a man's blameless, strayed spirit". Sethvir claims the stick and removes its powers, returning it to the herb witch as a plain walking stick.
