Overview

The fearsome shadow spirit known as Pump King Jack was inevitably driven into a corner and destroyed, but he did not depart without leaving behind a legacy. A minuscule seed of humanity bloomed from his exposure to so much of the Metaplane of Man that gradually fed on his interactions with metahumanity. While he never truly changed, the influences of the sleeping metastasizing spirit within him changed him for the better. In the end, he chose to discard it and gave birth to the Jack some few know today.

This new entity swore to never enter the physical realm of mortals again for those that saved him from destruction, but that doesn't mean he can't occasionally carry some influence! By carving a jack-o-lantern into a spooky smile, lighting a wax candle inside of it and singing Jack's favorite song aloud with thoughts of him on the caller's mind, Jack can manifest partially by causing a temporary astral shallow. It is with this little calling ritual that he intends to spice up some people's Halloween holidays in the future -- if he can't visit in person, he'll at least give them a good show!

Happy Halloween, muhahahahaha! 🎃🎃🎃

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Extraplanar Jack swore to never enter the plane of mortals again. As a result, he can't do any Gear checks at all and any Networking or Active checks must be related to metaplanes.
Spirit Savvy Jack knows spirits! He's insufferably persistent when it comes to expanding his influence; maybe a sign of his former self's ambition?
Herald of Halloween When it comes to the holiday tradition, Jack knows literally everything or it doesn't exist in the first place. Ask him anything about Halloween and he'll know!
Hella Halloweeners Maybe he knows a thing or two about the gang, too. How? He has vague memories! No, really! Please trust him!
Any Place, Any Time Jack always has time for a calling. If you perform the ritual right, he'll appear anywhere in the world at any time of day. No need to roll availability checks here!
Goodnatured Guide If you're heading to the metaplanes, let him give you a tour!
Formula One Need a hand with spirit formulae? He has some uncomfortable first-hand experience with them, so he might be able to share his wisdom. If you can call it that.
