the soul hunter is an attempt at a shapeshifter type hero, ive been playing with the idea of 'shapeshifting' for Hq for a while, but could never get a way to make it work comfortably within HQ's rules. so this is the next best thing. i will try to find a mini for it. hope you like

Whenever a Soul Hunter lands the killing blow on a monster, he steals a portion of their soul, taking it into him and altering him slightly. Changing his attributes depending on what monster he killed. This is a beneficial effect from most creatures, but some will impose a curse like affliction, a soul hunter can only have 1 soul effect at a time and these effects only last until they are replaced with another soul ability.
