From the journal of John T. Waterman, Ghost Hunter and Traveling Exorcist
|Spiritus beam and refractor crystal|
We weren't expecting any trouble. It was a routine putting to rest of a restless spirit. I had brought the lamp oil and flint and steel to burn the bones, Johnson the holy symbols and salt. We had been told it was a simple haunting, by a spirit that took the form of a beautiful woman.
This was not the case.
The spirit came at us without warning, incorporeal but sweeping over us like a great, malevolent wave. I pulled my rifle automatically, activated the Spiritus beam, revealing a woman in a tattered white dress, hands like claws.
|Banishing supplies always at hand|
I took a handful of vervain, sprinkled it with Holy Water, and whispered the Solomon's Oath, scatting the holy vervain at her feet. She dematerialized with a scream like to wake the dead.
After she vanished, we salted and burned her bones, dispersing her ghost forever.
If it were not for the rifle, our lives surely would have been lost.
