Effect When the sanguineus memory haunt is triggered, creatures within its area make a DC 15 Will save or are suddenly overcome by vivid visions of a bloody massacre for 1d4 minutes. In a darkened hall, maddened cultists in black robes are furiously attacking virtually unarmed nobles, the blood of both drenching the chamber. Creatures experiencing the memories of the victims of the slaughter are confused for the duration of the sanguineus memory’s effects, often mistaking allies for enemies or driven in a frenzy to injure themselves.
Destruction A vampire’s ashes must be spread across the sanguineus memory’s area and then drenched in three flasks of holy water.
Adventure Hook The sanguineus memory haunt is one of many repercussions from a vicious bloodbath just last year, the final act in a cult-led ritual to rebirth the dreaded Exsanguinator.
