Those driven insane by delving into dark and terrible secrets, as well as the ghosts of mad wizards who journeyed too deeply into the black essence of the Dark Tapestry, often manifest such haunts after departing the mortal realm.

Ghastly Whispers (CR 8)
XP 4,800
CE haunt (up to 40-ft. radius)
Caster Level 8th
Notice Perception DC 20 (to hear crescendoing whispers)
hp 16; Trigger proximity; Reset 1 day
When this haunt is triggered, all within the affected area discern a faint, feathery whispering. As the whispers crescendo, all intruders are subject to the maddening disorientation of an insanity spell (save DC 20). The condition is permanent, but can be cured normally.
Holy smite cast in the area permanently destroys this raving haunt.
