Description Buffeting winds swirl sharp grains of sand about the room.

Sand Vacuum ReactionReaction Trigger A creature attempts to leave the chamber; Effect A powerful wind pulls the creature back into the room. The triggering creature must attempt a DC 39 Fortitude save. The haunt can use this reaction any number of times per round, but only once per creature that tries to leave the room. The haunt then rolls initiative, if it hasn't already.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected.
Success The creature is pulled back 10 feet into the room.
Failure The creature is pulled back 15 feet into the room and is blinded for 1 round.
Critical Failure The creature is pulled back 15 feet into the room and is blinded for 1 minute.
Routine (1 action) The haunt's violent winds savagely buffet everyone in the room, dealing 6d10+30 bludgeoning damage to living creatures (DC 34 basic Reflex save). On a critically failed save, a creature is also blinded for 1 minute.
Reset The haunt deactivates after 1 minute and re-forms after 1 hour. The haunt is disabled and doesn't re-form if at least two creatures spend 1 minute to create an image with the sand. Creating the image requires a successful DC 30 Crafting or Thievery check.
