EFFECT

Vengeful whispers warn of the presence of spirits of bodiless rage, seeming to emanate from around a particularly impressive or morbid-looking throne. The haunt possesses the ability to use three spells: dominate monster, transformation, and enlarge person. Typically it casts these spells over the course of 3 rounds, attempting to dominate the most fearsome-looking member of any group that enters its area, turning its target against any other living creature, and using the following rounds to make its slave even deadlier and more monstrous in shape. Occasionally these haunts ally with nihilistic villains, transforming them into terrifying, soul-shrouded titans with the might to wreak ruin upon their foes.

DESTRUCTION

A ruler or someone wearing a royal crown must be affected by the haunt’s transformation and slain upon the throne at its center.
