Description[]

Spirits of the Mist

The Mistlands are haunted by all manner of otherworldly creatures, not all of which are the products of the necromancer’s art. Some are shaped by forces beyond the knowledge of any necromancer—but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous.

Within the Mistlands, spirits that have forgotten themselves commonly pull together into powerful collectives of hunger, pain, and fear. Called “the dispossessed” by those unfortunate enough to encounter them, these spirits often fixate on a single living creature. They flicker through the swamps of the Mistlands—always just at the edge of vision. When their target’s fear is at its peak, the dispossessed strike, countless spectral hands dragging their victim down to death. And then, another spirit begins its eternal wandering, gradually forgetting itself, and the cycle begins again.
