Obba Ella Atasha

The Dark Sisters Three

These bickering sisters represent negative aspects of womanhood. They grant charms and tricks to suitors whom they deem worthy (or handsome) enough.

Summoning Rules

Spirit Level: 3rd
Constellation: Thief
Binding DC: 19
Totems: You gain a totem bonus on binding checks if you meet some or all of these conditions:

  • You are a male with a Charisma of 15 or higher or you are in sight of such a male.
  • You are able to perfect a powerful hallucinogen for the ceremony, requiring 4 ranks in Craft (alchemy).
  • You mix a shredded scroll of charm person into the mixture used in the Dark Sisters’ ceremony.

Ceremony: You concoct a special mixture of herbs that mellows you mind and causes you to drift away.
Manifestation: As the mixture takes hold of you, the world blurs and silhouettes of three women appear, bombarding you with personal questions. The questions come ever faster until you scream in frustration, scaring away all but one sister, whom you seal a pact.

Legend

Virtually every city has its tales of a rich man who possessed a number of beautiful daughters and no sons. Sometimes these daughters belonged to him and in others they are adopted, but regardless of nation or race, every tale progresses the same. Though different in personality, the women always grow to desire the same gentlemen, as if to constantly thwart one another. Though minor details change from tale to tale, all such stories end with the sisters dying alone with their riches, having all but faded away from the homes and lives that reared them.

Granted Powers

Major Granted Powers

  • Touch of Pleasure: As a standard action, you may make a caress-like melee touch attack against an opponent. The target must succeed on a Will save or become dazed for 1 round and staggered for 1d3 rounds thereafter; a successful save leaves the target shaken for 1d3 rounds instead. After using this ability, it is expended for 5 rounds.
  • Capstone Empowerment: A creature that succeeds on its saving throw against touch of pleasure is staggered for 1d3 rounds instead of being shaken.

Minor Granted Powers

  • Hold Tongue: As a standard action, you cause a creature to become unable to speak if it fails a Will save. This is a compulsion effect that lasts for 1 minute per binder level you possess. Creatures that attempt to use actions requiring verbal components automatically fail while affected by this ability. Each round, the creature can attempt a new saving throw as a standard action, ending the effect prematurely on a successful save. A creature that succeeds on its saving throw becomes immune to this ability for 24 hours.
  • Love Spell: As a standard action, you cause two creatures within sight of one another to fall in love for 24 hours. Affected creatures immediately foster feelings of trust, comfort, and an overpowering desire for romance with the other targeted creature. A successful Will save prevents the effect for the creature making the saving throw. Incompatible or inappropriate creatures receive a +4 bonus on this saving throw while creatures with a strong emotional connection with each other suffer a –4 penalty. Although it is not permanent, genuine feelings can develop from love spell’s use. This ability only affects humanoids and monstrous humanoids and a creature can only be affected by love spell once every 24 hours regardless of whether the attempt succeeds or fails.
  • Serpent’s Decree: You do not suffer the usual –4 penalty on attack rolls when dealing nonlethal damage with a weapon normally deals lethal damage. Furthermore, you also gain the benefits of the Enforcer feat.
  • Temptation: As a standard action, you can affect a creature as suggestion. At 10th level, this ability functions as lesser geas and at 15th level it functions as geas. If the suggestion or geas is against your target’s nature, it receives a +4 bonus on its saving throw. Likewise, if the temptation is not against the creature’s nature, it suffers a –4 penalty on its saving throw. You can only tempt a creature with this ability once every 24 hours, regardless of whether the attempt succeeds or fails.

Signs and Influence

Physical Sign: You appear unnaturally beautiful to those who would normally be attracted to you. When you activate one of the Dark Sisters’ granted abilities you temporarily become hideously ugly to all that can see you.
Personality: Roll 1d3 to determine your personality. 1 – Obba causes you to act polite and attempt to put order into every mess. 2 – Ella causes you to express concern at every sign of oppression of others. 3 – Atasha causes you to gossip about others’ secrets whenever possible.
Favored Ally: Undead (any incorporeal).
Favored Enemy: Humanoid (any arcane spellcaster).

Vestigial Companion

You gain the service of a dove familiar for the duration of the pact; use the statistics for a raven familiar. Treat your binder level as your wizard level to determine your familiar’s abilities. This granted ability replaces love spell.
