The Amrikaan Spirit is always in the search for Jewels. Each kind of Jewel secretes the energy that gives the Amrikaan it's power.
Emerald: Natural - Amrikaan can manipulate and create deadly poison and plants.
Sapphire: Amrikaan can manipulate and create water.
Diamond: Amrikaan can control anything with telekinetic power.
Amethyst: Amrikaan is attracted to these the most.
These allow it to become incredibly fast and able to control the wind.
If any of these are 1 mile away at the minimum from the Amrikaan, it's energy is depleted to the least (Skill: 5 --- Stamina: 3). The Amrikaans defenses are to split into particles and allow attacks to pass through it, if you roll a 3 your attack hits. It can also divide into clones, sharing out the power. This happens on the roll of a 5, you must defeat an extra 3.
Amrikaans are deranged spirits. Not only do they need jewels, they desire them. The shine from them entices and hypnotizes the spirits, once they know you are there they will do anything to protect the gem. In 1654, a clan of miners were chased from their mine by a Jewel-Hungry Amrikaan. 60 were killed, the survivors were mental, shoked and emotion-less.
