The Ritual Stone

The Ritual Stone is one of the thirteen Standing Stones scattered across Skyrim. It is located to the east of Whiterun by the roadside, above the entrance to Graywinter Watch.

The Ritual Stone, when activated

"Once a day, those under the sign of The Ritual can reanimate nearby corpses to fight for them."

Activating the Ritual Stone grants you the power to raise corpses to fight for you for about one hour of in-game time. The power also allows you to raise corpses that can usually not be reanimated, such as mammoths or giants. The bodies do not turn to ash after the effect expires and there is no limit to the amount of corpses you can reanimate.

A hostile necromancer is guarding the place, and a circle of candles surrounds the stone. On first visit there are also some armed skeleton corpses around the stone, which the necromancer tends to raise.

[edit] Notes

  • If you reanimate a corpse and make it follow you to a location with more corpses (or NPCs that you can kill), you could end up with a large number of reanimated followers.
  • The Ritual Stone power works on corpses up to level 75. This limit can be increased using the Necromage perk.
  • Placing the Ritual Stone power inside the Aetherial CrownDG allows you multiple castings by removing and equipping the crown. This can be used to build potentially unlimited armies of undead.
