EQUIPMENT:
Naturally Gurah has many other items both magical and mundane, but these are the things he carries and equips normally.
The Shield. This belt buckle is a powerful defensive item. If the damage result is between 2-5 the damage is ignored.
Robe Of A Necromancer. Any spell from the necromancer's spell list(1) has a 1 in 4 change to stay in a caster's memory when cast.
The Ring Of Resurrection. Once, if Gurah dies, this ring resurrects him back to full HP. The ring is then destroyed blowing up his left hand.

CIRCLE OF SUMMONING UNDEAD:
When ten cultists of Gurah join their minds and powers Gurah has almost unlimited power over dead. He, for example, has sent ten undead stone giants into a fight. With the Circle of Summoning Undead in work he can control up to 100 HD worth of undead walkers of skeletons and zombies from different races. The Circle doesn't work on otherwordly or spiritual beings.
Those cultists who maintain the circle can keep it powered for 10 hours at a time. After that period they need to rest for 1d4 days before they can continue. With magic their stamina of keeping The Circle up can be extended.
