Fog ghost and Spirit Hold talent

Post by TheOracle » Sun May 26, 2019 3:05 pm

How does the fog ghost summoned by the spell "Summon Fog Ghost" interact with the "Spirit Hold" talent?

The fog ghost is a spirit, so you can use the Spirit Hold talent on it.

The DN is the effective Nethermancer Circle + 5. So if the fog ghost was summoned by a Fifth Circle Nethermancer (or a higher Circle Nethermancer casting it at that Circle), it's a DN 10 to successfully hold it.

I thought so, yes. But according to the rules text for the talent, the spirit can roll willpower each round to resist. Unfortunately the spirit does not seem to have a willpower stat...

My initial instinct would be to have the spirit's WIllpower Step equal the Nethermancer Circle.
