SPECIAL ABILITIES

Eerie Radiance (Su)

As a standard action, an ember weaver can wreath itself in an aura of cinders similar to dancing lights (CL 11th). Any living or dead creature within 300 feet with line of sight to the dancing embers must succeed at a DC 19 Will save or else any protections or immunities it has against charm, fear, and mind-affecting effects are suppressed for as long as the ember weaver uses a free action to maintain the effect each round and for 1 round thereafter. Once a creature succeeds at this saving throw, it can’t be affected by an eerie radiance for 24 hours. The light has no effect on psychopomps, creatures that can’t see, and creatures the ember weaver chooses to exclude. This is a sight-based abjuration effect.

Rush of Souls (Su)

As a standard action every 1d4+1 rounds, an ember weaver can call forth a rush of souls to trample its foes. This ability deals 6d6 points of force damage to all creatures in a 60-foot cone. A successful DC 19 Reflex saving throw halves the damage. The save DC is Charisma-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Astral Plane)
Organization solitary, pair, escort (1 ember weaver and 1 shoki), troupe (1 ember weaver plus 3–10 ahmuuths, catrinas, esoboks, or nosois), or procession (3–12 ember weavers)
Treasure standard

Ember weavers are beacons for dead souls seeking the afterlife, and escorts for other psychopomps. Most ember weavers patrol graveyards, ley lines, and other places where the dead enter into the river of souls, beckoning them to step toward eternity. Ember weavers also perform services in payment for knowledge about lost souls.

Ember weavers lead ahmuuths and esoboks in hunts for spirits waylaid by undeath. They also accompany nosois and catrinas to recover confused or rebellious spirits.
