The Whisperer in Darkness
Will o' the Wisp
A radiant trickster encountered in Raylack Swamp.
This mysterious, ghostly light can disappear and reappear at will, moving invisibly to attack its foes from different angles and retreating if the situation turns against it. It has a strange power to compel lost wanderers to walk after it, even against their will, and will exploit this ability to lead them into danger. This is evidence of a feral, tactical intelligence.
The resourceful Wisp is capable of teamwork, and has been observed helping swamp ghouls to overwhelm travellers for reasons unknown. It attacks with radiant light and is somewhat resistant to physical attacks, though fortunately it is not invulnerable – it can be harmed by magical attacks in particular. As its energy wanes its brightness will dim, providing hope to those it has attempted to beguile.
