Guest - Creatures of Eira Preview

Cultural and Linguistic note: Guest was the pronunciation of "Ghost" in North England  as a form of ghest or geist.  So for Eira, a "Guest" is a form of Ghost in keeping with the Celtic/Gaelic/Welsh theme of the setting.


"For thirty years I lived in that house. Every night, I saw her by the tree my great grandfather planted. Every night she stared into my soul her fingers pointing, accusing."

Hit Dice: 2+2
Armor Class: 6 [13]
Attacks: Touch (1d4+level drain)
Move: 12 [60']
Save: 16
Special: Fear, Level Drain
CL/XP:  4/120

Fear - The Guest emits an aura in a thirty foot radius around itself, all within that aura must make a save or take a -2 to all actions until the Guest is banished or otherwise made to leave.

Level Drain - Their touch causes the target to feel weaker, draining them of level if they cannot successfully save against it.

Spirits that cannot rest, cursed by broken oaths, business left undone, or something else. Left in this world and slowly driven mad by it. Guests were never meant to be in the realms of the mortals and every day they do not pass on is yet another day insanity inducing pain.  As undead, Guests cannot be harmed by non-magical weapons unless that weapon happens to be made of silver.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
