  • Ethereal Sight. The spirit usher can see 60 feet into the Ethereal Plane when it is on the Material Plane, and vice versa.
  • Incorporeal Movement. The spirit usher can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Spirit Tether. The spirit usher is magically bound to you, and you can communicate telepathically with one another as long as you are both on the same plane of existence.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The spirit usher’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC equals 10 + your PB, spell attack modifier equals your spell attack modifier). It can innately cast mage hand and the spells you chose in the Spirit Usher feature, requiring no material components.


  • Etherealness. The spirit usher enters the Ethereal Plane from the Material Plane, or vice versa. It is visible on the Material Plane while it is in the Border Ethereal, and vice versa, yet it can’t affect or be affected by anything on the other plane.


A spirit usher only exists when formed by a haunted warden ranger. While merged, the ranger gains the spirit usher’s ethereal sight trait and can interact with creatures and objects on both the Ethereal and Material Planes. In addition, while the ranger and spirit are merged, the ranger gains the spirit usher’s damage resistances and damage immunities.
