TACTICS

Before Combat This creature never anticipates combat, so she prepares spells she thinks would be most helpful for whatever situations come up. She spends most of her prepared spells and cleric spell-like abilities to aid the citizens of her city.

During Combat This creature uses her frightful moan to scatter combatants. She prefers to use her spells in a fight, but resorts to her corrupting touch ability when faced with exceptionally dangerous or evil opponents.

Morale After years of being bound to her beloved city, she is convinced she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. As such, she fights until destroyed.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Corrupting Touch (Su)

All ghosts gain this incorporeal touch attack. By passing part of its incorporeal body through a foe’s body as a standard action, the ghost inflicts a number of d6s equal to its CR in damage. This damage is not negative energy—it manifests in the form of physical wounds and aches from supernatural aging. Creatures immune to magical aging are immune to this damage, but otherwise the damage bypasses all forms of damage reduction. A Fortitude save halves the damage inflicted.

Frightful Moan (Su)

The ghost died in the throes of crippling terror. It can emit a frightful moan as a standard action. All living creatures within a 30-foot spread must succeed on a Will save or become panicked for 2d4 rounds. This is a sonic mind-affecting fear effect. A creature that successfully saves against the moan cannot be affected by the same ghost’s moan for 24 hours.

Goddess’ Embrace (Su)

In death, she manifested a power she considers a gift from her goddess. As part of casting a spell of 4th level or lower with a range of touch, she can send forth a fluttering streak of incorporeal moths that can deliver the effect to targets within 60 feet. For offensive effects, this ability manifests as a ghostly starknife rather than moths.

Rejuvenation (Su)

In most cases, it’s difficult to destroy a ghost through simple combat: the “destroyed” spirit restores itself in 2d4 days. Even the most powerful spells are usually only temporary solutions. The only way to permanently destroy a ghost is to determine the reason for its existence and set right whatever prevents it from resting in peace. The exact means varies with each spirit and may require a good deal of research, and should be created specifically for each different ghost by the GM.
