The Howling Pack
The howling waxed and waned but never went away.
Koram stalked around the room of the inn restlessly.
‘I tell you what,’ Chalk said to Valance,’I’ll appeal to the Spider God myself to get you the power to dispel that curse if you don’t do something about it soon!’
Valance gritted his teeth, the howling of ghostly hounds and the whining of the others was getting to him.
‘Okay, I’ll sort this out, it is getting to be too much to bear,’ he replied.
‘And stop taking stupid gambling bets that you are going to lose!’ shouted Koram.
The Howling Pack (Druid)
Duration: One year and one day or until dispelled.
This obscure druid’s curse allows the caster to make it seem as if a pack of ghostly hounds is surrounding the target of the spell, howling and barking incessantly. This causes no end of distraction (making the victim of the spell -2 on all rolls) it can also cause insanity-unless dispelled the target of the spell must make a save versus spells or gain an insanity tied to this curse (usually Cynophobia-fear of dogs or Phonophobia-fear of loud noises) once every three months until the curse runs its course or is dispelled. These dreadful sounds can be heard up to 80′ feet in the open and double that along corridors, halls and other confined spaces and half that through average buildings.
