Notes Gaki, also known as "Hungry Ghosts" in Japanese folklore, are restless spirits of the deceased who are eternally tormented by insatiable hunger and cravings. They are often depicted as emaciated, with long, skeletal limbs and distended bellies. They have been condemned for their greed and deeds in life to search for a specific sustenance to eat. This could lead them to haunt specific locations or individuals. The encounter could revolve around the players stumbling upon a haunted area or being approached by a desperate Gaki seeking to satisfy its cravings. Gaki are known for creating illusions to lure victims. Have the players encounter a seemingly lavish banquet or feast in the middle of a desolate and eerie landscape. As they approach, the food and surroundings morph into grotesque and nightmarish forms, revealing the Gaki's true nature. Gaki is usually invisible, it may spend 1 Magic Point to manifest itself visually for up to its POW in minutes. They do not initiate spectral combat but use their other skills - if the skill appears multiple times - increase its power in some way - for example double the effect.
