Spirits of Light



The beings that humanoids sometimes call angels are another type of elemental-based energy beings. Unlike true elementals, spirits of light understand the ways of humanoids and are champions of good and order. The symbols of light, truth, justice, and righteousness. They always appear as beings glowing with a golden or white light and beautiful to behold. By means of psionics or magic they always appear differently to everyone who sees them. Every person will see the spirit of light in the image that he expects an angel or spirit of good to look like. The stereotype mystic being with white, feathered wings is pretty typical.



From whence they come, nobody knows. All that is known, is that they, like other supernatural forces, are drawn to places of incredible mystic energy and/or turmoil and are linked to either an elemental dimension or elemental forces. Spirits of Light oppose all the so-called gods of darkness and beings of supernatural evil. As one might guess, most are of good alignments, but dark spirits, renegades and outcasts corrupted by the forces of evil, also exist.



Spirits of Light rarely take a direct hand in the affairs of mortals but may provide aid in the way of healing, information, encouragement, inspiration, and direction. Under dire circumstances in their battle against supernatural evil, these champions of good may offer their services in times of need or in protecting innocent people. They may even combat the forces of evil themselves or ally themselves with mortal champions of good to thwart evil. Scholars speculate that one likely reason for their hesitation in taking more direct intervention is that they are the last of a dying race and their numbers are few and scattered throughout the universe.



Occasionally, spirits of light will manifest themselves in a physical, humanoid form by means of ectoplasm and sheer force of will. In this way they can more easily walk among humanoids, but the sacrifice in energy reduces their powers and abilities by half across the board, from attributes to available base P.P.E. and inner strength points. A spirit of light can transform into its natural energy form at will, but instantly dimensional teleports to its home dimension to recuperate. It takes 6D6 days to be restored to its natural state. During this time the energy creature remains at half power. Only after recuperation can it return to the physical plane. If the being has maintained its physical form for more than a year, there is a 1-25% chance that it will become trapped in that physical state for 3D6 decades. Roll for every year and add + 5% for each additional year one is in the physical form.



Game Master Note: GMs can allow spirits of light as player characters, but only in their physical manifestation. All stats are given for the full powered energy being, reduce all by half in physical form.
