The Ghostwriter is an NPC vendor that will spawn once the following criteria has been met:

She sells Books, a new class of tools that provide mutually exclusive boss-themed buffs after each associated boss is defeated, and miscellaneous items related to them. She cannot defend herself against enemies, but also does not take any damage from any enemies other than ghosts, wraiths, and reapers in exchange, simply passing through harmlessly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Several of her lines suggest she is actually a child, which may explain her near inability to die, similarly to the Angler; ironically, as a ghost, she is technically already dead.
  • A ghostwriter is a writer hired to write something credited to another person.
