Sorrowstone
Hazard
Level 4 Warder
XP 175

This huge stone obelisk stands 10 feet tall and has been carved with the names of House Madar ancestors. A palpable aura of grief and loss surrounds the stone in a heavy shroud.

Hazard: This stone, imbued with grief and rage, has become a battery of negative emotion created by the tragic events that befell House Madar. It leeches negative emotion from nearby living creatures and uses this stolen energy to create wisp wraiths.Perception     No Perception check is necessary to notice the stone.TriggerWhen a living creature enters a square adjacent to the sorrowstone, it makes the following attack.AttackImmediate Reaction      Melee 1
Attack: +7 vs. WillHit: 1d8 + 3 psychic damage, and a wisp wraith appears in an unoccupied square adjacent to the target. The sorrowstone can create only a single wisp wraith from any one living creature. A creature whose negative emotions have already fueled the creation of a wisp wraith still suffers psychic damage from the sorrowstone’s attack.Countermeasures     The sorrowstone can be attacked (AC 14, Fortitude 10; hp 60). When the hazard is reduced below half its starting hit points, it can no longer create wisp wraiths. When the hazard is reduced to 0 hit points, it is destroyed.
