The Soul Eater: A Creature for Vaesen

Suggested Price $0.50

The Soul Eater is a reimaging of the maye of the Hasau people of Western Africa, for use in the Vaesen Nordic Horror Roleplaying Game, particularly in the Mythic Britain and Ireland setting. The soul-eater vaesen is intended as the first in a series of creatures from the imperial domains of Great Britain. These vaesen will provide opportunites to explore what is happening in the spiritual realms of newly conquered peoples as the centuries-long balance between the human and vaesen worlds have been shattered with the arrival of the British Empire.

I love the idea of vaesen from other parts of the British empire coming to Britain. A couple of odd things in the stat block though.

Did you mix up Soul Drain and Mental Projection in the Combat section? Also, which attribute does the Soul Eater use for the Soul Drain? I am guessing Magic.

It also says that the Mental Projection is the primary means of attack, but it looks like it's the only one. Is something missing? It is a cool power, but if this is the only way it attacks, what kind of images is it showing its victims? Is it while it has shapeshifted into another, dangerous predator?

There is only one condition on the track. Does this mean 1 damage is enough to make it go away temporarily?

No both magical powers are described as intended. I perhaps need to clean up the description a bit, I was trying to get all the key data on one page. But it uses the mental projection to overwhelm its victim and then severs the soul from the body with the soul drain attack. Both use its Magic ability of 9. The images are having its soul ripped away from the body and then the consuming by the soul-eater of the victim's soul.
And yes, I feel it's magical powers are quite strong, so it is constitutionally weak and becomes Broken after a successful attack. It is a creature that cannot be killed so it will constantly return until it is satisfied or dismissed by the one who summoned it. Given that persistence, I felt it too much to have be any stronger. It also does not go up against large groups of people, it stalks its prey, which does not require many Conditions.

I've updated the file to make things clearer, while also keeping all the vital stats of the Soul-Eater on a single page for ease of use during sessions.

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
