Invisible.  Cloaked riders are naturally invisible. They typically cover themselves with dark robes which gives them form, but if they shed those robes they cannot be seen unless magical means or truesight are employed.

Fear aura. Cloaked riders have an aura of chilling fear which radiates from them to a distance of 40' in all directions. Those who enter or begin their turn in the aura suffer a MAG (3d6) vs. MENTAL DEFENSE attack or are made Apprehensive [10]. The aura also automatically inflicts 1d6 cold damage to all creatures within 5' of the cloaked rider.

Wailing sickness. Those who suffer a critical hit from a cloaked rider's weapon contract wailing sickness.

Incorporeal. Like all spirits, cloaked riders are incorporeal. They are immune to physical attacks (except those which do good or fire damage).

Fear aura. The death knight has an aura of chilling fear which radiates from it to a distance of 30' in all directions. Those who enter or begin their turn in the aura suffer a MAG (3d6) vs. MENTAL DEFENSE attack or are made Apprehensive [10].

Magic resistance. Ordinary spells crumble in a death knight's presence.  The death knight gains +8 DEFENSE vs. magical attacks.

Control undead. Undead within 60' with a WIL attribute of less than the death knight's CHA attribute are automatically controlled by the death knight. They will obey all commands to the best of their ability.

Knockback (m). The target is pushed back 5' for a cost of 1d6. For 2d6, this can be increased to 10'.

Feint (1). A death knight can spend an action to gain +1d6 to a subsequent melee attack made in the same turn.

Summon undead minions (2). Once per day, a death knight can spend both of its actions to summon 3d6 skeletons to aid or fight for it. These skeletal minions appear within 30' of the death knight. They fade away after one hour.

Word of death (2). With a single word, a death knight can command a foe within 30' to die. A MAG (3d6) vs. MENTAL DEFENSE attack is made; if successful, the target is reduced to 0 HEALTH and falls unconscious and dying. Any given target can only be affected by this power once per day.

Banishment. Like most spirits (see spirit traits for more details), ghosts are extrmeeml hard to damage; and even when dispersed, they return the following day. However, every ghost has unfinished business - a task which, if fulfilled, permanently destroys the ghost. That task can be something trivial, or it might be almost impossible, but the task always exists.

Chill aura. Ghosts have a chill aura that can be felt out to 60'. Within 10' the aura causes 1d6 cold damage to any who enter or start their turn in it.

Telekinesis (1). A ghost's telekinesis attack allows it to fling nearby objects at its foes.

Unearthly keen (2).  A ghost can emit an unearthly wailing keen which attacks CHA (3d6) vs. MENTAL DEFENSE to all who can hear it. Those successfully hit by the attack are made Apprehensive [10]. For each victim successfully attacked in this way, the ghost recovers 1d6 HEALTH.

Unstoppable. Headless zombies keep attacking even after reduced to zero HEALTH. Zero HEALTH simply incapacitates the headless until its HEALTH has regenerated to 1 or more HEALTH. However, a headless can be permanently destroyed by cremating the corpse completely so that noting but ash remains. This takes 30 minutes in a normal fire.

CALLED SHOT. When reduced to zero HEALTH, a vampire is not slain. Instead, it is paralysed. In order to slay a vampire, it must either be beheaded or staked in the heart. A vampire can remain paralysed for centuries, returning to unlife with a drop of nourishing blood. A called shot to the heart with a wooden stake can paralyse a vampire instantly.

Sunlight. Every turn that a vampire begins in direct sunlight, it suffers 1d6 fire damage. Even when not in direct sunlight, vampires suffer -2d6 to all dice pools during daylight hours.

Apotropaics. Certain items can ward off vampires. Good holy items, and garlic, inflict a -1d6 die penalty to any attribute check made by the vampire if within 10' of the offending object. This also causes considerable discomfort to the vampire.

Invitations.  Vampires cannot enter a private dwelling without an invitation from somebody who lives there.   Once an invitation has been extended, the vampire may enter freely thereafter.

Preternatural celerity.  Vampires can move incredibly fast. Once per round, on its turn, a vampire can move its SPEED as a free action, appearing as little more than a blur to onlookers.

Spiderclimb.  Vampires can scale vertical surfaces as though they were horizontal. A vampire gains a CLIMB speed equal to its regular SPEED.

Regeneration. Vampires regenerate 1d6 HEALTH at the start of every turn.  This power only works at night.

Charm (1). Vampires can make a MAG vs. MENTAL DEFENSE attack (6d6, including charm skill) as a single action against any target within 30'. If successful, the target is Beguiled [21].

Children of the night (2). Once per day when in an outdoor environment, vampires can spend two actions to summon 1d6 wolves which arrive within 1d6 turns and remain under the vampire's control. This power only works at night.

Shapechange (2). Avampire can spend two actions to change into the shape of a wolf or a bat. It can change back by spending a further two actions. This power only works at night.

Dark arts (2). Vampires can create magical effects equivalent to a cantrip related to darkness or mists.

Blood drain (m). A bite attack taken with a -3d6 penalty allows he vampire to sink its teeth into its victim and drain its blood. This reduces the victim's END dice pool by 1d6 but does not do normal damage.  When the dice pool reaches 0d6, the victim is slain. A creature slain by the drinking of its blood by a vampire rises three days later as a vampire under its creator's control. It remains forever under the control of its creator unless its creator is destroyed. The spawn is considered dominated by its creator (see Conditions).

CALLED SHOT. Zombies keep going, no matter how much physical damage is done to them. Even a zombie reduced to zero HEALTH is usually still active, although incapable of moving. The only way to kill a zombie is to destroy its brain with a single called shot to the head. This will drop the creature instantly.

Zombie fever. Those who suffer a critical hit from a zombie's bite contract zombie fever. Additionally, any slain by a zombie rise one hour later as a zombie themselves.
