Swordsman Betrayed (CR 9)

Here a master swordsman fought and won many duels until he was betrayed and stabbed in the back by an ally. A trace of his spirit still lingers here, mistaking anyone entering the courtyard for a challenger.

XP 6,400; LG haunt (a courtyard, 20 feet by 40 feet); Caster Level 9th; Notice Perception DC 0 (the spirit of the swordsman appears and yells the challenge); hp 18; Trigger proximity; Reset 1 minute

EFFECT

When this haunt is triggered a ghostly duelist appears and challenges the first armed person to enter the yard before attacking with a luminescent blade that acts as a mage’s sword, with a total attack bonus of +15, for the next nine rounds.

DESTRUCTION

Surrendering to the swordsman spirit breaks the cycle of duels into which this haunt is locked. However, the surrender must exactly follow the appropriate protocol (Knowledge [nobility] check of DC 15).
