First of all, those saying Stalvan likely was in southshore when he went to Dalaran seem to make the most sense. Secondly, who says he has necromantic powers just because there's a curse related to him? WoW has SEVERAL examples of the dead remaining because they can't move on, not just because of the plague. The ghost of the elf woman in Darkshore who has a questline to be 'put at rest' by her lover, the ghosts of the Horde on the way into Blasted Lands. Clearly, something in Duskwood happened to raise the dead. They're all over Raven Hill, near Mistmantle manor, and Mor'ladim ALSO demonstrates raising because he couldn't stand what had happened in his life. I think Stalvan is an example of this. The curses, and spirits, that protect his belongings aren't necessarily from his own power, but could be along the lines of anything being 'cursed' from being associated too closely with such a damning situation in life. Stalvan still obsseses over Tilloa in death - he cannot rest because, in actuality, he did not want to kill her. My assumption, actually, was that he killed himself after the massacre but that the darkness in Duskwood would not let him rest and brought him back. To me, he, himself, is cursed. He exists amongst the other ghouls because there is no rest for the wicked, as it were. Or perhaps Abercrombie had to do with raising him back. Duskwood has quite alot of mysteries in it. I wouldn't assume Stalvan, himself, had any sort of powers in life. What he is, is because of death.
