Half Ghosts[edit]

"No, I'm not half-dead. Now get that thermos out of my face." (Name Reserved), Halfa to her full human friend.

Physical Description[edit]

Human form: Just a normal human, except eyes will glow in the ghost form's color with intense emotion.

Ghost form:

History[edit]

  • Minor Spoilers Contained

The first Halfa created was Vlad Masters (who is known as Vlad Plasmius in his ghost form) by being infected with ecto-acne. The second known was Danny Fenton (Danny Phantom) via accidentally turning his parent’s ghost portal on when he was inside.

There are at three transformation methods:

  • confirmed

Gaining ghost powers via ecto-acne Being hit with large amounts of ectoplasmic energy

  • Unconfirmed

Or possibly via inheriting the powers

Society[edit]

In society, Halfas are like normal humans but usually guard their secret. They usually hide the transformation and are wary to reveal their secret. If the secret is revealed, a myriad of reactions will occur. The willingness to continue to accept the halfa is based mostly on how they were before the news. (Not always.) Padalins still take the time to see if the halfa is good or bad before striking. You know, they're not REALLY half dead. (But that could be a rumor in some places...)

In the eyes of ghosts, however, this is complicated. Most ghosts will find out about them being a halfa quickly after they use their powers in a ghost-related fight (or sooner). It honestly depends on the individual ghost/ how much influence that ghost has among the other ghosts and the Ghost Zone. (If the Ghost Zone doesn't exist in your campign, then replace with the closest thing even if it is ghostly societies on the material plane or something.)


Full Humans have wide opinions, as do the other races, but in general...

Full humans: Really? Like half ghosts exist. (or if they came from the "reality plane" if such a place exists.) *sings Danny Phantom intro*

Elves: They act just like full humans, so why treat them any different? Humans have the capacity to be good or evil and such is the same concerning the Half Phantoms.

<Race Name> Names[edit]

Their given names are usued while human form but their ghost from may have an alias. Traditionally their first name with the last name replaced by a word.

Alias Surnames: Phantom, Plasmius, Spectral, Phantasmal, Ethereal,


Half Ghost Traits[edit]

{{5e Racial Traits |summary= Three scores of your choice increase by 1 |abilities= Three scores of your choice increase by 1. |age= Assumed the normal lifespan of a human. (It is not known if they age in ghost form, however).

|alignment= Like humans, any alignment

|size= Considering they are still at least part human, your size is Medium

|speed=Your base walking speed is 30 feet. Your base flight speed is 30 feet.


|trait1= Second Half |description1= You can transform into your ghost half. This transformation takes thirty seconds to complete either way. (human to ghost and vice versa) You gain the following powers ONLY in your ghost half's form. If rendered incapacitate you revert to your human form.

(For humor purposes have the powers activate unwontedly for a brief moment while still in human form if these powers are relatively new.)

Ethereal Form. You may move through objects and creatures as if they were difficult terrain. Ending your turn in a square occupied by an object or creature causes you to be pushed to the nearest unoccupied square and take 1d10 force damage.

Flight. At level five you gain a fly speed of 30ft.

Invisibility. at level seven you may cast the invisibility spell once per a long rest

Overshadowing. You gain the ability to overshadow a humanoid within 5 feet of you. The humanoid must succeed a Charisma saving throw or become possessed. You then disappear, and the target is incapacitated and loses control of its body. You now control the body but you can't deprive the possessed target of awareness. You can't be targeted by any attack, spell, or other effect, except ones that turn undead, and you retain your alignment, Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma scores. You otherwise use the possessed target's statistics but you don't gain access to the target's knowledge, class features, or proficiencies. The overshadowing lasts until the body drops to 0 hit points, you end it as a bonus action, or you are turned or forced out by an effect like the dispel evil and good spell. The target can make Charisma saving throws to force you out of their body. When the overshadowing ends, you reappear in an unoccupied space within 5 feet of the body. If they were not rendered incapacitated, they cease to be incapacitated. The target is immune to your Overshadowing for 24 hours after succeeding on the saving throw or after the possession ends. You regain use of this trait once you have completed a long rest.

|trait2= Ectoplasmic Blast |description2= You know the Eldrich Blast Cantrip in ghost form. You may also learn to use it in human form with time and practice. Roll a 2d4 dice for the number of months minimum before you can use Eldritch Blast cantrip in human form.

|languages= You can speak, read, and write Common and one other language of your choice.
