Yowling spirits are undead dwelling in ancient ruins and squalid cities. They appear as a unkempt woman in a patchwork shift made of hissing and wailing cats. Like other undead they are unaffected by sleep, hold or charm spells. They are not hurt by non-magical weapons and silver only does half damage. A yowling spirit's shift lashes out at those near it, exposing the spirit's body underneath.
The undead cats that form a yowling spirit's robe have sharp teeth and claws. These inflict a horrid fever (a save vs. poison is allowed) which prevents normal healing. Worse yet, the sufferer is at -2 to hit and damage due to feverish debilitation. Death follows in 2d12 days but a cure disease will remove this effect. Those dying of the fever exhale a foul lambent yellow mist. This flies to the nearest yowling spirit and becomes one of her cats.
The yowling spirit is a creature of unnatural lust, seeking to lure the unwary into it's embrace. The cats jealously lash out at anyone nearby. Harming the cats harms the yowling spirit who harangues the attacker. This tirade may attract wandering monsters.
