An Id Sphere is created when a crystal ball has witnessed mass murder of unprecedented proportions. As the psychic residue of death and agony fill the area, the crystal ball is granted sentience as it absorbs those fractured minds. The crystal ball then swells in size and begins to break apart. An invisible field of mental energy keeps the sphere is place. An Id Sphere is now fully formed with the sole function of being a psychic vampire, constantly seeking to erode and absorb sanity. A Id Sphere is a 3' diameter broken glass orb transmitting images of mental anguish as it hovers through the air.

Combat


  • Id Sphere constantly radiate an aura of insanity in a 30' radius. Those who enter the aura must make a save vs spell or be under the effect of the confusion spell. A save is required each round if within the aura. 
  • The Id Sphere can suppress mental functions with a pscyhic assault to close portions of the mind. This suppression attack has a range of 60' and requires a save vs spell to resist. Upon failure a portion of the victim brain is shut down. The GM will determine what ability is lost. This could be anything from losing the ability to cast spells, turn undead, movement, attacking, etc. That ability is suppressed for 1 turn.
  • Id Sphere can release a brain crush attack which erodes the target sanity. The brain crush attack requires a save vs spell or the target loses 2d4 points of wisdom. A target reduce to 0 wisdom is dead and their consciousness absorb into the Id Sphere. Wisdom damage is recovered at 1 point per day. Those killed by Id Sphere cannot be raised from the dead unless the Id Sphere is destroyed and their consciousness released.
  • Id Sphere is immune to mind-affecting abilities. Spells or abilities that target the Id Sphere mind will backlash upon the caster. The backlash will causes 1d4 points of wisdom damage. Wisdom Damage is recovered at 1 point per day.
  • Any target reduce to below 3 wisdom and not killed has a 20% chance of gaining a random insanity.
