The Tyrant’s Whispers CR 14
NE persistent haunt (up to a 70-ft. radius)
Caster Level 14th
Notice Perception DC 20 (to hear faint whispering)
hp 63; Trigger proximity; Reset 1 minute
When triggered, the tyrant’s whispers manifests as a subtle chorus of voices whispering in a cacophony of languages. Unlike most haunts, the tyrant’s whispers displays an unusual sentience and awareness, selectively targeting groups or individuals. This attack manifests as a wish spell duplicating a spell effect (save DC 23 when applicable). Such effects include, but are not limited to, the following:
- A targeted dispel magic spell to dismiss any protection from evil spells or other barriers blocking the haunt’s attempts to affect intruders.
- Successive break spells targeting a character’s armor, holy symbol, or weapon, which gains the broken condition on the first round, then crumbles to dust the next. The effect then moves on to new objects for as long as the haunt persists.
- An antipathy spell targeting a character’s holy symbol or favorite weapon, making the item revolting to all goodaligned creatures for as long as the haunt persists.
- A character is affected by a vomit swarm spell, vomiting up thousands of flesheating beetles (treat as an army ant swarm), but the victim has no control over the swarm.
Only freeing the whispering tyrant from his imprisonment can dispel the whispers that haunt these cursed lands.
