Change Shape [one-action] (concentrate, divine, polymorph, transmutation) A morrigna can take the appearance of any Small or Medium animal or humanoid. This doesn’t change their Speed or their attack and damage modifiers with their Strikes, but it might change the damage type their Strikes deal. Unless they choose to manifest their web wrappings in their new form, they cannot make web wrappings Strikes.

Spider Minions [three-actions] (conjuration, divine) The morrigna summons a giant tarantula or spider swarm. These spiders have the summoned trait and remain for 10 minutes or until reduced to 0 Hit Points, whichever comes first. The morrigna does not need to Sustain the Spell to direct these summoned creatures, and the morrigna can have any number of summoned spiders in existence at once. The morrigna can see through the eyes of any of their summoned spiders at any time.

Spirit Touch As nosoi, but 4d6.

About

Bounty hunters and investigators, morrignas seek out creatures that thwart death or interfere with the natural flow of souls. Morrignas dress in flowing spider silk and wear masks reminiscent of webs, as they consider patient and watchful spiders to be their spiritual kin.

Other Psychopomps

Nosois and morrignas are far from the only of their kind. Many others, like the skeletal vanths or the draconic yamarajes, also aid in the stewardship of the dead.
