Converted Class: Immune to Convert
The Reaper can reap souls at night with the Reap ability, killing a player while leaving an empty body for 2 days before falling. When enough souls are gathered, the collected souls can be redeemed for power-ups.
The Icy Touch ability can be used during the Day phase to send a target temporarily into death, Unknowingly speaking to the dead instead of the living.
Note: Other Neutral factions won't necessarily assist you, as their objectives are their own.
|Consume Soul||Passive||Special||If you die at night with at least one soul, you will consume it and come back to life.|
|Icy Touch||Day||2||Target player speaks only to the dead for the day.|
|Gather Darkness||Day||Special||Consume two souls to make Reap bypass night Immunity.|
|Reap||Night||∞||Reap the soul of a player, killing them and leaving an empty body for 2 days. They cannot speak to or be revived by The Priest. Other Reapers are Immune.|
- The Icy Touch ability is useful to prevent a player from defending himself when about to be executed for Treason. However, if he survives the day, it will notify the player that The Reaper is in play.
- The best type of people to use your Reap ability on are against either someone that is going to kill or is capable of Occupying you.
- It's often in your best interest to hold off on using Gather Darkness until you have three souls. Staying alive is usually more important.
- Save as many souls as you can for an emergency.
Lore: The Reapers of Corax
Although actual Reapers have long been considered a myth, we have found evidence of their influence throughout Adiart's history. There have been three tales of debatable relevance.
Firstly: An urban legend passed around: a section of cultists supposedly dedicated themselves to what they call The Reaper's Penance where they would kidnap a serving maid or child and force them into crypts or mausoleums with little explanation. One child documented his experience and of a Paladin who came to his rescue, noting the presence of something that created a crushing sensation in his chest and the ravings of lunatics. Of course, the tales of children can never be completely believed and no paladin alive has attested to saving a child in need, at the time. The child in question, however, went on to become an Assassin of the Black Rose faction. None can tell why his path led him to evil. The Reaper's Penance carries on, even to this day, every 4 years - but one can only wonder that, should the reapers be denied their sacrifice, whether they shall rise to take it. As a legend, we cannot take this as fact, but as it turns out, most legends are based on fact - so, perhaps, this has legitimate merit.
Secondly: A report from a Knight of the realm. A man condemned to die for his assassination of a Noble's son accused his jailer of being quite close to a description of these creatures... He begged his wife and son to remain safe while the town Sheriff took him away. He yelled out, pleading for the guards to skewer him there and then. 2 days later, he was due to be executed. The executioner brought out his body on his shoulders. Onlookers attest to his inability to move or speak. His body and face were rigid, yet they hung him anyway. It was unclear what happened that day, but all law enforcers attest to his good health at time of death. The knight also attests that the man was perfectly fine and that the sheriff was not under the influence of dark magic. All we know, for sure to guarantee foul play, was that the mark of Corax appeared on the hand of the accused as soon as he was hanged. What is strange is that, although the Cult appears to have some kind of pact with Mithras and Corax, they don't seem to actually be affiliated with reapers. In fact, there have been reports of reapers slaying Cult members. Then again, how can we know the mind of a deity of pure darkness?
Thirdly: This tale was taken from a Black Rose member's diary. A bard in a tavern sung jolly songs every night at a local tavern for 7 years always managing to entertain the patrons and making a well earned living at the time till one night he was accosted outside before his show. He entered the tavern and began to sing, but his words... they warped to form a soliloquy of despair. The lyrics were "...and in the dark, those muggers see, their fateful eyes shall rest. For with my words, and my last breath, I'll put them to the test. With woeful sorrow, and fated faith, I shall bid you all farewell; as now I sing, Corax's song, and now i ring his bell". At that moment, the tavern was engulfed in the dark cloth of a reaper the size of the tavern and the building was erased from this world. The ground scarred with the lyrics where the tavern once was and 37 limp bodies lay there. Shivering in the corner lay a singular maiden, clawing at her arms and shivering from head to toe. An illegitimate Princess of the realm, as it were. Naturally, the Black Rose claim this was reserved as knowledge only for Kings before a copy was stolen by the Black Rose from the royal library. It would appear that even they fear the reaper. It appears that the reaper is an ally of no man - although, perhaps, an ally of dark gods.
