Slaughtered Soldiers CR 4
NE persistent haunt (10-foot-radius around entrance to stairs leading down to area W1)
Caster Level 4th
Notice Perception DC 15 (to notice the bloodstains on the walls growing fresh and runny)
hp 18; Trigger touch (any attempt to enter stairwell leading down); Reset 1 hour
Ghostly soldiers seemingly made of blood emerge shrieking from the bloody swaths on the walls in the haunt’s area of effect, only to be hewn apart by unseen blows, spattering all creatures in the area with the blood. All creatures in this area take 1d6 points of negative energy damage and become frightened for 1 round. A DC 13 Will save reduces the negative energy damage to 1 point and negates the fear effect, but a new save must be made each round that a victim remains in the haunt’s area of effect for as long as the haunt persists. Creatures fleeing this haunt in fear cannot flee downstairs; they must flee upstairs or out of the donjon if possible.
