    Is there a thread or a corner of the forum with sample spirits for 2nd edition? Or a place to crowd-test new spirits as it were?

        The Thrice-Veiled
        Rank: 4
        Attributes: Power 9, Finesse 12, Resistance 9
        Willpower: 10
        Essence: 25
        Initiative: 21
        Defense: 6
        Speed: 23
        Size: 6
        Corpus: 15
        Influences: Secrets ••, Harmony •••
        Manifestation: Image, Reaching, Shadow Gateway
        Numina: Implant Mission, Innocuous, Seek, Sign
        Ban: Anyone who presents the spirit with a piece of Theban limestone inscribed with a simple "fact," the Thrice-Veiled will use its power to make the fact come true. For example, the words "Mike Jones is a wealthy homeowner" on such a stone will mean the spirit bends its power to contrive a certain homeless man' ascendance to the upper class.
        Bane: ******[NOT SURE ABOUT THIS ONE YET]
        Description: The Thrice-Veiled appears as an indistinct figure -- blurred, dark, and even when you see him, you can never remember what he looks like.

        The Thrice-Veiled is a powerful servitor of the God Amun. The Thrice-Veiled deals in secrets (everything from where the bodies are to the Bans of half the local spirit court), but it is primarily involved with harmony. In this context, harmony can mean the proper functioning of the body, the local infrastructure, or society. Everyone plays their parts; even criminals have their place, but everyone knows their place and the spirit discourages imbalance and undue frictions. For example, when a mugger confronts his victim, the victim will put up little resistance and the mugger will take the money and go. Likewise, when the mugger is cornered by the police, he will surrender and the cop will not use undue force. The "order" which this Ensah gradually imposes on a locale isn't necessarily congruent with the "good" -- there is still destitution, crime, and inequality. But when the Thrice-Veiled is watching, the locals are, if not content, then a little less discontented with their lot. Of course, someone looking to shake up the status quo -- a gang, activists, or a pack of Uratha -- may find themselves facing pushback from the Shadows.

        Summoned by Neferankhet the leader of the local mystery cult, The Thrice-Veiled is the strongest spirit of the temple complex, and acts as an avatar of Amun. It helps to hide the temple and the worshippers. It also helps to keep order in the general area -- people tend not to litter, buildings and vehicles are kept up, and crime is kept to a petty level. The spirit acknowledges the authority of Neferankhet. In turn, it gains much essence from the worshippers and the locus, and is setting about to change the spiritual landscape in the neighborhood. As befits the "behind the scenes" style of the spirit, the local spirit courts are slow to realize there is a cunning new player in town.

          The Bane could be a perfectly balanced blade, as evidenced by an Armor Piercing rating of 4 or above. Or reflective glass: It must appear as it is before it.

                Something a little different, but I've made an STL and 3D prints for the lock spirits in Dark Eras.

                I'll give making a couple of these a shot too.

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.

                  Numina- 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

The One who Burns takes the form of a vaguely female creature of impressive stature. Its body is cracked and blackened as if by flame and noxious smoke rises from its form. Boiling hot blood seeps from its blistered flesh.

When manifested, The Prince of Hungers is a corpulent 10ft tall giant, whose bald head is absent any features except for its oversized mouth with an impossible number of teeth. It always appears in clothing that would consider “finery”, which could be anything from an expensive suit to opulent robes, all cut to flatter his girth.

                    Agreed. These are awesome!

                    Here's my take on the Bright Cursor, although I diverged a bit from the description based off of the resources I could find. I think it sticks with the spirit (ha!) of the description. I've also got some photos of my trial print:







                    The pictures don't quite do it justice, I'm actually quite fond of it. I'll work on taking a crack at a couple of others.

                        The Ragged Tear is a pain spirt that feeds on deliberate cruelty, and uses its influence to compel individuals to greater acts of emotional and physical sadism. It manifests as a dark-skinned, hairless and androgynous person, with empty eye sockets that leak a black fluid and is dressed in tattered wrappings of dark fabric.

                        The Screaming Void is a strange spirit from the darker reaches of the Shadow, drawing its power from entropy and dissolution. It appears as a rippling distortion in the air accompanied by a high-pitched resonant noise.

                        The Spirit called Strom of Dread regains essence when creatures die from electrocution. It formed most of its identity from the execution of death row inmates via the electric chair. Since this form of execution is no longer common, Storm of Dread must seek its essence in other ways. Storm of Dread takes the form of a cloud of black smoke, crackling with lighting and carrying the lingering smells of ozone and burning flesh.

                        The Unyielding Lord is a spirit of Vengeance, especially acts of vengeance taken to satisfy ones pride. It uses it power to inflame petty insults and minor grievances to a violent extreme. It uses possession frequently, and prefers to occupy the bodies of wealthy professionals. The Unyielding Lord appears as a powerfully muscled red-skinned man, with two heads (each a fierce lion), the wings of an eagle, and writhing swarms of scarabs for arms.

                        Whisper in the Hall is a spirit dwells within schools, and derives its essence from the dedication and pride the students and faculty have for that institution. While normally harmless, it has begun to use its influence to encourage ever greater demonstrations of loyalty and to punish those who do not show the proper amount of “school spirit”. It appears as a vaguely humanoid swirl of posters, banners and bulletins from the school. It often manifests as a quiet, non-descript student, dressed in the school colors.

                          Any ideas for a spirit of justice by opression.
                          Or police justice spirits?



                          With a bit of magic everything can be done.

                            “Tarnished Badge” is a spirit that draws its strength from the abuse of the authority granted to police officers and others who enforce the law. The uses its power to urge law officers down the path of corruption. Tarnished Badge appears as a broad shouldered man wearing an antiquated policeman’s uniform. Its face is smooth and featureless except for its eyes, which flash with red light.

                              Thanks! Sometimes is quite hard to imagine certain things.
                              My game is about a pack working as a fight club that time to time go to missions around the neighborhood doing justice by their own hands first discovering a crime, punishing and then calling police leaving the criminal.

                              The pack territory is a mess of crime, poverty, drugdealers, but still is a neighborhood with normal and good people living around.

                              I haven't done a long season in the Shadow with all these details because I'm actualy afraid of so much information and my brain cant figure it out what is the appearence of all of this in buildings etc. I dont want to fill the spiritual streets with spirits clones of each other too.
                              Any tips discribing the basic Shadow version of this territory?
