Control Visage

( Ghostwalk, p. 29)

[Ghost, Haunt]

Your ghost body is shaped as if you were alive and unharmed, and you can control what you ghost body appears to wear.


Required for

Improved Control Visage (Gh) , Haunting Appearance (Gh) , Horrific Appearance (Gh) ,


When you return from death as a ghost, you look like a semitransparent version of your body in the peak of health. As a supernatural ability, you may change your ghostly clothing, armor, weapons, and equipment as a standard action as if using the alter self spell, but cannot change the actual appearance of your ghost body. Thus, you could appear to wear a traveler's outfit, a cold weather outfit, or even a royal outfit.

You do not receive any of the penalties or bonuses on Charisma-based skill checks that a corpselike ghost would take because of the means of its death. You gain a +1 bonus on Bluff, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Intimidate, and Perform checks, and Charisma checks made to alter an NPC's attitude.


A ghost without this feat appears as she did at the moment of death, with wounds and other trauma visible on her ghost body. This affects creatures that see the ghost as described in the Faces of Death sidebar (earlier in this chapter).
