Baleful Apparition (CR 6)


Baleful Apparition CR 6

Source Pathfinder #43.

Bile seeps up from floorboards while horrific images of bloody claws or the gasping faces of drowned victims fade into view and back out again. Such are the haunts that infest torture chambers, ruined castles, and secluded, swampy groves.

EFFECT

Victims of this haunt are subject to disturbing supernatural images. Mirrors reflect bloody visages, shadows coalesce into terrifying monstrosities, horrifying spectres wail, or decaying maidens plead for help. The unnatural happening targets all witnesses with a fear spell (save DC 16).

DESTRUCTION

The resonance of lingering psychic trauma, these images are usually the result of ethereal residue rather than a specific restless spirit, and can be dismissed with a hallow spell.
