Type
Manifestation

Appearing In
Slasher

A young girl in white night clothes, soaking wet. Inky black hair curtains her face.

Local Lore: No one is sure who she was, but they know that she drowned. Now people say they can sometimes hear her crying out by the lake, late at night. Once in a while, they even hear her scream. Whenever small, wet footprints are found around the grounds, it's usually attributed to her ghost.

Components and Weaknesses

Components

Banshee Wail
Her scream can do damage and even kill. Brawn must be rolled to resist, with tough/enduring qualities adding +1. Failure makes the victim fall to their knees in pain and does 1-3 SP loss.
Drown on Dry Land
She can point at one person and cause the victim's lungs to fill with water and drown. Same roll/damage as above, but the victim's lungs fill with water and they drown.

Weaknesses

Manifest Flesh
Ghosts that manifest to harm the living can be harmed in turn. Guns stagger them, for instance, and physical trauma has an impact. It is unkown if this can KILL them, or simply slows them down.
