Complexity Simple
Stealth DC 43 (master)
Description These desperate spirits are the echoes of people who committed great atrocities in the name of an evil god. Now, they are left with only the knowledge that their souls have been damned, and the unwavering belief that they can better their fate by providing powerful sacrifices for their fiendish masters.
Disable DC 46 Religion (master) to inspire a deity to intervene and counteract the ritual
Mark for Damnation ReactionReaction (death, divine, necromancy) Trigger Three or more sentient living creatures of 13th level or higher enter the haunt’s area; Effect The haunt deals 6d12+35 negative damage to each creature in the haunt’s area, and each creature must attempt a DC 40 Will save.

Critical Success The creature takes no damage and is doomed 1.
Success The creature takes half damage and is doomed 1.
Failure The creature takes full damage, becomes doomed 2, and is marked for damnation.
Critical Failure The creature takes double damage, becomes doomed 3, and is marked for damnation.

If a creature that is marked for damnation dies within the next 24 hours, including from the haunt’s damage, its soul is immediately dragged away to the plane of the evil deity that the damned spirits served, where the creature’s soul is held captive by one of that deity’s powerful servitors. Only wish and similarly potent effects are able to recover the lost soul directly; however, it is also possible to recover the soul by journeying to the evil plane and defeating the soul’s captor.
