ABOUT

This plump apparition has a pale face with piercing black eyes and long, stringy hair. It walks slowly, inexorably toward you.

Pale ladies are apparitions that have lost their way. The uneasy spirits of those who tried to help, they seek to warn others of their impending doom. Unfortunately, something has gone horribly wrong in their approach; perhaps in death the pale ladies can’t see very well, or they have difficulty interacting with the Prime Plane. Whatever the case, what should be a benevolent spirit has turned into something far worse. In their attempts to warn humans, they instead … absorb them.

Pale ladies appear everywhere at once, blocking all exits until they engulf the very people they were hoping to save. And then they move on, warning them against the greatest threat of all–themselves.
