    So of course Medusa heads was mentioned. Here's the template for your viewing pleasure:

    Very, very cool!

    This is a creature that actually came to me a couple of days ago on my walk to the bus, impressive considering it's like a 30 second walk and I hadn't been thinking of dnd until right then. I kept the idea in my head and worked on it a little and then set it aside. I finished most of it last night and essentially added a tiny bit to the end right now. Ecology isn't particularly clever, but I'll try to think of something to make these more interesting. Can anyone guess which creature I took and modified to make this? Hint: this did not start out as an Aberration.

    Pinein
    Size/Type: Huge Aberration
    Hit Dice:
    9d8+45 (101 hp)
    Initiative: +2
    Speed: 40 ft, burrow 10 ft.
    Armor Class: 22 (-2 size, +2 Dex, +12 natural), touch 10, flat-footed 20
    Base Attack/Grapple: +6/+24
    Attack: Bite +13 melee (2d8+8)
    Full Attack: Bite +13 melee (2d8+8) and 2 claws +11 melee (2d6+4)
    Space/Reach: 15 ft./10 ft.
    Special Attacks: -
    Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft, DR 10/non-magic, fast healing 5, scent, SR 24, tremorsense 60 ft.
    Saves: Fort +8, Ref +5, Will +7
    Abilities: Str 27, Dex 15, Con 20, Int 2, Wis 13, Cha 6
    Skills: Jump +18, Listen +9, Spot +3
    Feats: Alertness, Delay Potion (B), Multiattack, Track, Weapon Focus (bite)
    Environment: Any
    Organization: Solitary or pair
    Challenge Rating: 9
    Treasure: See Below
    Alignment: Always neutral
    Advancement: 10-16 HD (Huge); 17-27 HD (Gargantuan)
    Level Adjustment: ó

    Drink Potion (Su): As a Standard Action, Peneins can drink one of the potions inside it's back. It can choose to gain the benefits immediately or store it as with the Delay Potion feat to drink later as a Swift Action. At the beginning of battle, a Penein will always have one potion ready for this feat. It can choose any potion at will to use to gain a positive effect.

    Potion Splash (Su): Whenever a Penein is struck by a weapon, a potion will splash out of it's back. It affects targets only within 5 feet of it. The potion is random [use the chart below] and because of the special nature of the Penein, it will always have the opposite effect upon the attacker, as on the chart below. The DCs of the potion effects are 19 and are Con-based. The duration of the effects, except for those which have instantaneous damaging effects, are as a 9th level caster.

    Code:
    	Potions				If Splashes
    1	Cure Light Wounds		Inflict Light Wounds
    2	Endure Elements			5 Elemental Damage
    3	Mage Armor			4 Force Damage
    4	Remove Fear			Cause Fear
    5 	Barkskin			Morale penalty on defense
    6	Bull's Strength			-4 Strength penalty
    7	Cat's Grace			-4 Dex penalty
    8	Cure Moderate Wounds		Inflict Moderate Wounds
    9	Eagle's Splendor		-4 Cha penalty
    10	Fox's Cunning			-4 Int penalty
    11	Owl's Wisdom			-4 Wis penalty
    12	Remove Paralysis		Cause Paralysis
    13	Resist Energy			10 Elemental Damage
    14	Cure Serious Wounds		Inflict Serious Wounds
    15	Haste				Slow
    16	Rage				Calm Emotions
    17	Remove Blindness/Deafness	Cause Blindness/Deafness
    18	Remove Curse			Bestow Curse
    19	Remove Disease			Cause Disease
    20	Magic Fang			Morale penalty on attacks
    Note: If a 5 or 20 is rolled, roll another 1d20.
    Roll Result
    1-6 +/- 1
    7-11 +/- 2
    12-15 +/- 3
    16-18 +/- 4
    19-20 +/- 5


    DR (Su): A Penein's DR is special. It is protected from magical attacks and in fact reduces the damage from magical attacks. Only normal weapons are capable of damaging a Penein normally.

    Peneins are magical experimentations that have apparently learned how to procreate and thus have been slowly increasing in numbers. Their lifestyles, however, are known to none because the few times they have been encountered, combats have errupted ending in either the death of the Pinein or the death of those looking for them.

    Their bodies are turtle-like though the shells upon their back are covered with numerous soft spots which frequently expand and retract due to the liquid moving around within them. Dark green scales covers the rest of their bodies, though these scales aren't as protective as the one upon their back.

    Treasure
    The liquid upon the back of the Penein can be taken and used as a potion, though some people might not like the idea of drinking liquid which came from the inside of another creature. Each creature after the battle has 1d4 doses of potions [roll on the table above to determine which kind; repeats are possible]. The person must succeed at a Craft [Alchemy] check DC 15 to successfully remove the potion. This potion grants the beneficial effect. Failure on this check means that the potion is actually a negative potion and will instead cause harm to the imbiber.

    5 and 20 are apparently special.

    There was no REAL order to that except I went down the list of pots in the DMG. I think I ended up just tacking on the last one because it fit in. Imagine my surprise when I went down the list and had 20 pots exactly.


    If you think something's missing or not quite right with that creature let me. Something about it bothers me, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    I've only read about half of it--I'm studying for finals! I just wanted to tease you about rolling a 5.

    I'll probably have more time to look through this later this week or next week.

    Okay, came up with this creature like a half hour ago. Am posting this now, though I know it needs to be gone through once again and checked for mistakes.

    Weidziec
    Size/Type:
    Medium Monstrous Humanoid
    Hit Dice: 3d8+6 (19 hp)
    Initiative: +5
    Speed: 30 ft. (6 squares), swim 40 ft.
    Armor Class: 15 (+1 Dex, +4 natural), touch 11, flat-footed 14
    Base Attack/Grapple: +3/+6
    Attack: Claw +6 melee (1d4+3)
    Full Attack: 2 claws +6 melee (1d4+3)
    Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft.
    Special Attacks: Alternate Visions
    Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft, weakness against illusions
    Saves: Fort +3, Ref +6, Will +5
    Abilities: Str 16, Dex 12, Con 14, Int 15, Wis 16, Cha 14
    Skills: Bluff +9, Perform [fortune teller] +9, Sense Motive +10, Spot +10
    Feats: Improved Initiative, Lightning Reflexes
    Environment:
    Organization: Solitary
    Challenge Rating: 4
    Treasure: Standard
    Alignment: Neutral evil
    Advancement: By character class
    Level Adjustment: ó

    Weidziecs are wicked looking creatures covered in stitched designs covering the bodies and tattoos. They are shorter and stockier than humans, but are relatively similar except that their skin is dark gray and twisted and toughened to give them a body better able to deflect blows. Their lips are almost always curled into a snarl, revealing their disgusting yellowed and dirty teeth. Their claws are sharp and always covered in blood since their first kill. They seem to believe this grants them the ability to read the tarot cards better.

    Weidziec personalities vary depending on where they are and who knows about their abilities. Most live in isolated areas such as caves with several members from the surrounding areas as body guards. Others who have been found by wealthier organizations keep them in an area which is as much about comfort as imprisonment. Either way, however, they require the bodies of women to pass on their abilities. It is said that there has never been a female Weidziec in existence and certainly, no one has ever seen one. Any woman of any race will suffice for their purposes, though they of course prefer the beautiful flesh that they do not themselves possess. Some have speculated that the more beautiful the woman, the more powerful the offspring, but this has never been proven.

    COMBAT
    Alternate Visions (Su): Weidziecs have the ability to see events in the future, incidences in the past, and the ability to see what cannot normally be seen in the present. It can only have one of these open at one time, however, though it can switch eyes once per round as a free action.

    Future: Weidziecs see events before they happen. They have the uncanny ability to know when they are going to enter a combat before it occurs and can even judge where an opponent is going to be even before that opponent moves. They gain a bonus on Init checks, Armor Class, and attack bonus equal to their Wisdom modifier.

    Past: Weidziecs can look into the past and see things how there were before. This allows them to do one of two things:
    1. Cure themselves. Essentially, they view themselves before they had taken damage and then their wounds body changes to become that vision. This acts as a Cure spell equal to their Hit Die with a Caster level equal to twice their Hit Dice. Thus the average Weidziec cures 3d8+6.

    2. Inflict others. Weidziecs can view a creature how it was some time in the past, see the opponent during a time after it had received wounds. It follows the same rules as the cure spells. The spell DC is equal to 13 + spell level. This is Wisdom-based.

    Present: Weidziecs can see creatures no matter where they are and how they attempt to hide. They gain the blindsense ability.


    Weakness to Illusions: Weidziecs automatically fail Will saves against Illusion spells. Against Illusions spells that grant another save [such as Phantasmal Killer], Weidziecs automatically the Will save portion of the spell, but still make the save for the portion.

    I just wanted to say that I used the Maniacs in the first combat of my newest campaign. It was totally awesome. I used them in combination with 2 Cask Imps from the Monsternomicon. Started by having a guy suddenly running around and then he fell off the ship. Then two others ran the length of the ship away from a Maniac.

    As people started doing weird things, everyone kind of figured out what the effect was, but it took them a little longer to figure out where the source was. Most of the damage came from the PCs striking each other, but the Commoners did get a couple of lucky hits in [twice ALMOST crit hit, but not quite].

    Paladin detected Evil and one of the random Commoners I decided was evil, and everyone thought he was the cause before they figured out the truth. So they ended up knocking him unconscious though ironically, he didn't even do anything except for the one time he was confused and attacked someone else.

    So then they decided to interrogate one of the Maniacs. They were like 'Why did you do this?" He was like "I don't know what happened. I was just performing and people started acting weird. I thought it was just them acting out their joy." Players were like 'riiiight'. Then I said 'Everyone make Will saves'. Seriously though, it took a Paladin, a hexblade, and an Artificer like 8 rounds to strike him once to knock him unconscious again [and this without armor and considered flat-footed because of the manacles - though he maybe shouldn't be - wouldn't have for effects like Sneak Attack though had there been any Rogues]. They kept getting hit with the aura and the laughter and the couple of times they managed to attack him, they missed.

    Was a GREAT experience we all enjoyed immensely.
