    Originally posted here, this is a collection of Spirits that I have used in my own games, submitted here for the enjoyment of all. As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated.

    ~ Thanks!
    New Manifestations

    Dreamwalker: (Requires Open Condition) By spending 2 Essence, the entity shifts from Twilight into the Dream Space of an individual or location with the Open condition. Once there, it can interact with the Dream Space in the same way it interacts with the real world (including other entities also active in the Dream Space), and may use influence and numina.

    Realm Gateway: The World of Darkness holds many spiritual realms. Some non-native entities have managed to find ways to enter these realms, exploring them for their own reasons. To do so, the entity must find an appropriate point of ingress, such as a locus, Avernian gate, or dormant gate to the Hedge and spend 2Essence. Each time this power is selected, it is keyed to a specific non-native realm. It may be picked multiple times, once for each realm the entity would like to access.

    Whisperer: This manifestation is common to Infernal Entities. With it they can slowly lure a targeted individual into sin and depravity. This is similar to the Fettered Manifestation, but does not require the Open Condition. By spending 2 Essence, the entity adds the Whisperer Condition to itself. Beings targeted by this Effect contest the roll with Resolve + Composure + Supernatural Tolerance. If the Effect is successful, targets gain the Urged Condition.

    New /Updated Numina

    Adjust Reality: The entity can subtly shift reality. This typically manifests a streak of luck or sudden opportunity, which the entity can exploit to their benefit. Once per scene, when the entity spends Willpower to add to a dice pool it may reroll a number a failed dice up to its rank. If spending Willpower to bolster Defense, it may force the opponent to reroll successful dice equal to its Rank. Alternatively, the entity can grant an individual other than themselves a die bonus of +2 to a single roll, as they adjust reality to accommodate their whims.

    Armored: A spirit with this Numina is difficult to injure, and are often manifest impressively armored forms. The Spirit spends 1 Essence point to gain Armor equalto its rank until the end of scene. This armor does not apply against the Spirits Bane.

    Babel:This Numen can make it impossible for its target to speak coherently. The Numen costs 1 Essence, and the activation roll is contested by the victim’s Intelligence + Supernatural Tolerance. If the entity succeeds, the victim suffers the Glossolalia Tilt for the rest of the Scene.

    Bane Sense: An ephemeral entity is largely immune to harm except from specific sources. One of those sources is its Bane, and its senses are attuned to detecting danger. It gains the Danger Sense (Advanced) Merit in relation to its Bane.

    Banshee Wail:The entity creates an earsplitting scream that deafens anyone nearby. Anyone within 20 yards of the entity must succeed on a Resolve + Stamina roll – the number of successes gained or suffer the Stunned and Deafened Tilt. The Numen costs one Essence to activate.

    Blight: The entity can destroy a crop of food within a radius equal to 100 yards per point of Power. The Numen costs seven Essence to activate. On a success, the crop fails, afflicted with a sudden, crippling blight that kills the plants overnight, leaving not a single grain or piece of fruit edible.


    Curse: The entity curses a target with a specific malady. An entity can typically only inflict one type of affliction, but examples include boils, disease, madness, spiritual malaise, and many others. The Numen costs 3 Essence, and the activation roll is contested by the victim’s Stamina or Resolve + Supernatural Tolerance. If the entity succeeds, in may impose a Condition or Tilt appropriate to its particular curse (such as Amnesia, Blind, Deafened, Madness, Mute, or Sick). The entity can also specify an outward sign of the Curse; typically a type of disfigurement, marking or scar. The Curse remains until the entity either removes it or is destroyed. Certain supernatural means may also be able to remove the curse.

    Heal: The entity can heal others’ wounds, typically for a hefty price. This Numen costs 1 Essence and a Power+ Finesse roll to activate. Each success heals a level of bashing damage, while two successes can heal a point of lethal damage. The lethal damage healed can be used to mend aggravated damage, but each point of aggravated damage cured costs three additional points of Essence. This power may also be used to fight off disease or the effects of poison — each success adding to the subjects’ resistance rolls on a one-to-one basis.

    Metamorphosis: When working on an incapacitated or unresisting living creature, the entity can alter that creature’s physical make up. This Numen requires a Finesse + Resistance roll to activate. Changes such as the targets appearance, race, or gender cost 3 Essence. Other, more substantial, changes may also be made. By spending 5 Essence, the entity can move one Attribute dot or turn an Attribute dot into one of:
    • A point of Armor
    • 1L of natural weaponry rating
    • A sense that the victim does not normally possess (such as echolocation, infrared vision, or similar)
    • A Dread Power that suits the change in question

    Mixed Blessing: The entity can bestow a number of dots equal to the entities rank in a specific merit to a mortal. The Merit is chosen when this Numina is selected and cannot be changed at a later time, but may be split between multiple merits. This Numen costs Essence equal to the dots in the bestowed Merit and last s for one day per activation success. For the duration of the Numen’s effect, the mortal gains the Leveraged Condition in relation to the bestowing entity. At any time, the mortal can buy the Merit at half cost, rounded down. This makes the Condition Persistent. The Persistent Condition can then only be resolved if the entity chooses to release the mortal, or is destroyed. This Numen may be selected multiple times, each one representing a different Merit.

    Perfect Lie: When this Numen is used successfully, its victim will believe anything it says, no matter how unlikely, as long as it isn’t utter fantasy or contradicted by anything the target knows to be true. The Numen costs one Essence to activate and is contested by Composure + Supernatural Tolerance. If the entity succeeds, the victim believes the lie for the scene.


    Phantom Arsenal: The entity spends 1 Essence point to manifest blades, claws, fangs, hooks or other appropriate weaponry. The modification acts as a +1L weapon. By spending an additional point of essence, this weapon gains the “9-Again” quality. Entities with the Telekinesis Numen can apply their Phantom Arsenal benefits when directly assaulting with psychic force.

    Plague Bearer: An entity with this Numen can inflict disease upon a mortal creature. This Numen costs three Essence. The activation roll is contested by the victim’s Resolve + Stamina + Supernatural Tolerance. On a success, the victim suffers from a potentially fatal disease and gains the Sick (Grave) tilt. What the disease is, and whether it’s infectious is up to the Storyteller, but it’s always potentially fatal. If the disease is not terminal and incurable, it should take at least a number of successes equal to the greater of the entities Power or Resistance on an extended Stamina + Resolve roll to beat, with one roll allowed per week.

    Swarm Form: This Numen allows a spirit to break up its body into thousands of tiny parts. By spending 2 points of Essence, the Spirit disintegrates into a mass of discrete size 1 or less parts (such as a mass of whirling razors or swarm of stinging insects). This Swarm can then be directed focus its attack on a single target (in which case the target suffers bashing damage every turn equal to the entities Rank; this may be increased to lethal by spending 2 Essence), or spread out over the area, creating the Swarm Tilt with a radius in yards equal to the Entities Rank.

    Telepathy: Entities with this Numen can reach out and link their minds with others, allowing instantaneous and reliable communication. This Numen costs one Essence. If the target chooses to resist, the roll is contested by the target’s Resolve + Supernatural Advantage. Success allows the entity to freely communicate with the target and to read their thoughts until the end of the scene. If the target is mortal, they gain the Shaken Condition - being that intimate with an alien mind is profoundly disturbing.

    Transmute: Some spirits and angels possess the ability to transform one type of matter into another. More precious materials and those with mystical significance require greater effort to transmute. The Numen requires a Finesse + Resistance roll to activate. Transmuting common materials such as grave dirt or dead wood into other common materials costs 1 Essence. Creating valuable materials like gold or gemstones requires 3 Essence, and the roll suffers a –2 penalty. Transmuting objects into matter with mystical significance like silver or alchemical substances requires 5 Essence and suffers a –4 penalty. This Numen may not be used on living things.

    Twilight Abduction: The entity can attempt to drag victims within one yard into an incorporeal state, allowing it to freely interact with the target. Spend three Essence points, and roll the entities’ (Power + Finesse) .The target resists with a roll of (Resolve + Composure + Supernatural Tolerance). If the entity wins, shadows drag the victim and his worn possessions through a sudden imploding tear in space. In an instant, the rift closes, and the victim enters Twilight for one hour per remaining success.

          I'm a big Werewolf fan and have always found your spirits to be really useful, even if just a springboard to work off of.

          An upcoming game is going to be somewhat ghost-heavy and was wondering if you had other threads about them, or more than your General Ghosts above?

              When I have used ghosts, I normally have them linked to haunted/cursed relics. I will post a few such ghosts below.
              Ghosts

              Cassandra Silver
              Cassandra Silver (given name Anne Griswold) was a talented up and coming actress cast the femme fatale in a noir detective film titled Midnight Heart in 1946. During the final week of filming, Cassandra was found dead in her Malibu home. Despite evidence of violence and sexual assault, the city coroner ruled her death “suicide” and the case closed with little fanfare.
              Midnight Heart was never released, despite the director’s efforts to edit the film to account for the un-shot scenes.
              During the filming the production of an earlier film, Cassandra began an affair with the director which continued on into the production of Midnight Heart. All of this was kept hidden by the studio, as the director was a married man and the scandal would have been disastrous. When she broke off the affair the director flew into a rage and murdered her. The situation was quickly covered up by Solomon Studios and a heavily bribed police force. As most of the people involved are long dead, it is unlikely the truth about Cassandra Silvers death will ever be known.
              Her ghost remains anchored to the last known copy of the film.
              Cassandra is still a stunning beauty, with blue eyes, porcelain skin, an hourglass figure and silver-blond hair. Although those she sought her revenge against are all dead, Cassandra lingers on.

              Sexton Darwin
              Sexton Darwin was the lead vocalist of a 5 member black metal band named “Wound”, and was known for a hard-partying lifestyle and dabbling in the occult. The entire band was found dead in late 1990 in what appeared to be a ritualistic murder/suicide.His ghost remains anchored to a unlabeled black cassette that contains the only known copy of Wound's final album.
              Sexton still looks the part of a late 80’s rocker in the black metal scene; black leather pants, black t-shirt, long dark hair and arms covered in satanic and occult tattoos and fists covered in menacing silver jewelry. Death has made his pale flesh almost white and turned his eyes into smoldering red pinpoints.

                        Thanks for the high praise - I am a pretty decent amateur game designer, but I don't think I'm ready for the big leagues yet. Maybe one day.

                        Re: Goetia
                        I haven't had the chance to run Mage yet, so I haven't come up with any good Goetia just yet. That being said I will see what I can come up with.

                        In the meantime, have a new Spirit.

                        Samhain
                        The spirit known as Samhain is an ancient harvest spirit born from the essence generated by pagan revelers during the festival of Samhain. Over the centuries it has grown and absorbed elements of related traditions (such as Halloween or Dia De Los Muertos), but remains true to its roots. He is an enforcer of custom and ritual, rewarding those who show proper respect to spirits and the memory of the dead, and often punishing those who do not. His current guise is a tall, skeletal figure in tattered robes, with an orb of fire for a head and carrying a lantern made from a turnip with a grotesque face carved into it. The will o wisps of light dance around the lantern. He often takes the form of a child in costume, and accompanies other bands of children as they make their rounds during the holiday.

                              Ya know what? I am going to shift out the Telekinesis Numina for an extra dot of Influence. I like the possibilities of what happens to a person granted a soul stained with Samhain's resonance.
