Iron and glass vial containing tiny, churning clouds of white vapor
Aura faint necromancy; CL 3rd
Slot none; Price 400gp; Weight 1 lb.
These glass vials are held within stylized cold-iron casings etched with strange runes, necromantic designs, or other eldritch markings. Within the vial roils a small wisp of white vapor, churning as if caught in a miniature vortex of air.
To capture a haunt’s energies, within a haunt siphon, you need only twist the metal casing to open the vial in the same round that the haunt manifests (a standard action)
- this can be before or after the haunt has acted. You must be within the haunt’s area of influence to use a haunt siphon. When you activate a haunt siphon, it deals 3d6 points of positive energy damage to a single haunt. If it deals enough damage to the haunt to reduce the haunt’s hit points to 0, the mist inside teh haunt siphon glows green — if it does not reduce the haunt to 0 hit points, the haunt siphon is still expended and becomes nonmagical. it may take multiple haunt siphons to destroy powerful haunts. A haunt that is neutralized by a haunt siphon takes a -5 penalthy on its caster level check to manifest again after its reset time passes.
