    Wow!

    Okay then about what size would qualify the Colossus to be truly Colossal?

  2. #62
    A hundred feet, as far as I remember. Better change the name.

    Hey there!

    Just because something is called a Colossus doesn't mean it necessarily needs to be Colossal size. The former is an arbitrary word while the latter is metagaming.

    Of course it doesn't hurt either.

    Titans are not Titanic size for instance (although my original Titans would be).

    A huge, terrible four-faced fiend stands before you. All except its fat, yellowish belly, is covered in thick, dark, greenish-blue scales. Its eyes are ablaze with hellfire. A long powerful tail swings behind it. This creature has two powerful arms – both ending in razor-sharp claws.

    These ancient baatorians were once known and feared as the “Devourers”. Their job used to be torturing lawful evil souls by eternally devouring them over and over. Now they, just like others of their kind, hide within the darkness of Hell. Occasionally, they may catch an unsuspecting mortal and even a devil to devour.

    The “Devourers” separate themselves from other devils and baatorians, preferring to devour in peace.

    They stand 18 ft. tall and weigh 3,500 pounds. They speak Infernal, Celestial, and Draconic languages.

    Combat:Devourer’s tend to attack creatures with their claws and bite attacks in hopes of swallowing them whole. However, they are far from mindless beasts. They quickly switch to ranged attacks when outnumbered.

    Baatorian Traits: Baatorians possess the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).

    - Blindsense 500 ft.
    - Hellfire Blast (Su): All baatorians possess the ability to produce hellfire, as they are born from it. As a standard action, a baatorian can cause an area, anywhere within 100 ft. of themselves, to explode with hellfire. The explosion is 30 ft. in diameter and deals 10d6 points of hellfire damage to all, except other baatorians, within range. Reflex DC (10+1/2 baatorian’s HD + its Cha bonus) halves damage. It is not uncommon to find a baatorian with a more powerful hellfire blast.
    -Immunity to fire and poison.
    - Resistance to acid 25 and cold 25.
    - See in Darkness (Su): Baatorians can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, even that created by a deeper darkness spell.
    - Summon (Su): Some baatorians share the ability to summon others of their kind. However, since their numbers have greatly diminished, they tend to rely more on renegade baatezu or baatezu they have under their control. They can, however, summon other ancient baatorians with a 50% chance.
    - Telepathy 1000 ft.
    - They are affected by a nondetection spell with a caster level equal to their Hit Dice.

    Except when otherwise noted, baatorians speak Infernal, Celestial, and Draconic.


    Breath Weapon (Su): Once every 1d8 rounds, this baatorian can spew forth a 60 ft. cone of acidic bile and hellfire. It deals 10d10 points of hellfire damage plus 8d6 points of acid damage. Reflex save DC 36 halves damage. DC is Con-based.

    Constrict (Ex): This baatorian deals 6d6+28 points of damage while constricting with its tail.

    Fear Aura (Su): A pit fiend can radiate a 60 ft. radius fear aura as a free action. A creature in the area must succeed on a Will save DC 32 or be affected as though by a fear spell (caster level 28th). A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same aura for 24 hours. Other baatorions, not devils (baatezu), are immune to the aura. DC is Cha-based.

    Hellfire Blast (Su): This baatorian possess the ability to produce hellfire, as it is born from it. As a standard action, this baatorian can cause an area, anywhere within 100 ft. of itself, to explode with hellfire. The explosion is 30 ft. in diameter and deals 10d6 points of hellfire damage to all, except other baatorians, within range. Reflex save DC 32 halves damage. DC is Cha-based.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If this baatorian strikes a creature of Medium or smaller size with both claws, it can attempt a grapple check. If successful it picks them up and tosses them into its mouth (see the swallow whole ability below). If this baatorian strikes a creature of Huge or smaller size with its tail, it can attempt a grapple check. If successful it establishes a hold and can constrict.

    Multi-Headed (Ex): This baatorian has 1 huge head with 4 faces on each side. Using these heads it can perform 4 actions (1 action per head) per round as long as that action involves the use of its head. This means that each face can do one of the following: breath weapon or bite. It can also never be flanked or caught flat-footed.

    Poison (Ex): Injury, bite; Fortitude DC 36, initial damage 1d6 Con, secondary damage 1d6 Con. DC is Con-based.

    Regeneration (Ex): This baatorian takes normal damage from epic, good, and silvered weapons, as well as good spells.

    Spell-Like Abilities: CL 28; DC 18 + spell level
    Always active – nondetection
    At will – blasphemy, deeper darkness, detect chaos, detect good, fireball, greater dispel magic, greater invisibility, greater teleport (self plus 1000 pounds), magic circle against chaos, polymorph, symbol of pain, unholy aura, wall of fire
    3/day – fire storm


    Swallow Whole (Ex): Those who have been swallowed whole find themselves in the beast’s belly, which is filled with hellfire and acid. They take 6d6 points of bludgeoning damage, 6d6 points of hellfire damage, and 4d6 points of acid damage for as long as they stay within the creature’s stomach. The swallowed creature can use a piercing or slashing weapon to break free. After dealing 50 points of damage to the stomach, they create an opening just bi enough for them to escape. After they escape, a muscular action causes to hole to close. At which point, those left behind must start the process all over again. This baatorian can hold 4 Medium, 8 Small, 16 Tiny, 32 Diminutive, or an infinite number of Fine creatures within its stomach at any one time.

    Vorpal Bite (Ex): On a successful critical hit, with its bite attack, this baatorian can sever the head of its victim killing it instantly. They are allowed a Fortitude save DC 38 to resist the vorpal effect, though they still take damage from the bite. Only creatures at least one size smaller than this baatorian can be affected by this ability. DC is Str-based.

    Skills: This baaotrian gains a +8 racial bonus to Bluff and Intimidate skill checks.

    Before you towers a looming monolith (vaguely humanoid in stature, though ineffably greater) of absolute nothingness. It appears as a shallow, two-dimensional hole in the fabric of Reality, Time, and Existence. Its entire non-being resonates with dolorous energies antithetical to all Creation. It has no discernable features; its entire “body” seems to be a massed conglomeration of churning, unearthly black waters, held together by an indomitable supernal will. Although, if you peer closely, you notice (or least pretend to notice) two vastly alien orbs (lurid and lustrous with abominable splendor) agleam with terrible intelligence and execrable malevolence, buried deep within the swirling vortex of void-energy that makes up its “head”

    The Unfettered Titans of Oblivion are the greatest and most horrible of all the children of the Immortal Dark, apocalyptic sentinels of unhallowed majesty who herald the end times of dimensions. They are horrifically powerful, beyond even the ability of immortals to defeat. (Indeed, deities are among their most favored prey). Although few in number, their abysmal might is enough to turn the tide of any battle in their favor, and far fewer still is the number of their slain, for rare indeed is the demise of these awesome entities.

    Combat: An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion takes unholy delight in sublime annihilation. They generally open combat by using their Summon Hecatoncheires ability to distract opponents, followed by judicious use of their Void Breath. They specifically target immortals if they are present on the field, as well any creature that attempts to use Time Stop or the like, who quickly find themselves at the mercy of their anathematic foe

    Alter Reality (Ex): As a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity, an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion may duplicate the effect of any spell whose level is 33 or lower, including the application of any metamagic feats. It may also duplicate any Epic Spell whose DC is 185 or lower

    Antidivinity (Ex): An Untrammeled Titan of the Oblivion, although the undying foe of all entities divine, nonetheless possesses a sadistic and profane semblance of Divinity. It receives a +24 Antidivine Bonus on Attacks, Ac, Damage Rolls, Saves, Skill Checks, etc

    Death Throes (Su): When an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion dies, it fulminates with a catastrophic fulguration of odious nether-power. Everything with 24 miles receives 10d10 permanent Hit Dice annihilation (Fortitude Save DC 134 for ½)

    Execration Essence (Ex): An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion is the utter anathema of Reality and Existence. It is afforded awesome and terrible malefic puissance. On a failed save of any kind, it takes only ½ the intended effect; on a successful save, it takes no effect. In addition, it acts first on every round of combat, regardless of initiative.

    Godblight (Su): An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion is the bane of all immortals. Any deity into whose Divine Aura the Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion enters loses any Divine Bonus it possesses and also receives an Antidivine Penalty of the same value wherever such would apply

    Nonexistence (Ex): An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion “exists” only in an ephemeral and perverse sense of the word. Any effect to which it would be subjected has a 75% chance of failure. In addition, an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion is immune to the following: Ability Damage, Ability Drain, Alignment-based Effects, Critical Hits, Death Effects, Divine Damage, Energy Damage, Energy Drain, Force Damage, Level Loss, Permanent Damage, and Sneak Attacks

    Regeneration (Ex): No form of damage overcomes an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion’s regeneration. To be killed, it must be reduced to -18,850 HP and Wished dead. The Wish must bypass SR twice to take effect.

    Retribution (Ex): An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion’s “flesh” is aberrant to any semblance of atomic orderliness. Anyone dealing damage to the creature takes an equal amount of the same type of damage in return. In addition, any weapon striking the Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion must make a Fortitude Save (DC 132) or be Disjoined

    Spell-like Abilities: CL 124 DC 92 + Spell Level
    At Will- Miracle, Reality Revision, Wish

    Supernal Conveyance (Ex): As a Free Action, an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion may teleport anywhere in the Kosmos with no chance of failure

    Summon Hecatoncheires (Su): As a standard action 1/day, an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion may summon 10d4 Pseudonatural Hecatoncheires

    Temporal Travesty (Ex): An Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion is an entity unfettered by the Laws of Time. It is immune to the effects of Time Stop or similar spells and may take two rounds of actions in a single round.

    Void Breath (Su): As a standard action 1/round, an Untrammeled Titan of Oblivion may exhale a cone of utter annihilation. This cone is 5000 ft long and deals 1000 points of permanent damage (no save) to anyone caught within the effect

Greater Cyclopes spend most of their time with Hephaestus’ Forge create item after item non-stop. Those not living in Hephaestus’ Forge find themselves living in the mountains where they continue to hone their crafting skills. An adventuring party maybe able to receive an item crafted by a greater Cyclops, if they swear to use it for good. However, event though greater Cyclops have the ability to create artifacts, they do not do so unless commanded by Hephaestus himself.

    Greater Cyclopes stand 20 ft. tall and weigh over 4,500 pounds. They speak Abyssal, Celestial, Common, Draconic, Giant, and Infernal languages.

    Craft Artifacts (Ex): Greater Cyclopes can create artifacts almost as easy as a deity can. A greater Cyclops working by itself can create an minor artifact within a week, while taking a whole year to create a major artifact.

    Garuda hates all evil creatures, particularly dragons. He despises evil dragons, seeing them as a bane to good flying creatures all over the universe. Even good dragons who show disrespect towards Garuda have felt the blunt force of his Serpent Basher, though he never kills them. Garuda also hates reptilian creatures, seeing them as wingless dragons. Garuda serves the Veda Pantheon as a destroyer of evil, as well as a mount.

Evil creatures with a natural fly speed must make an extra Fortitude save DC 60 or be stunned for 1d6+5 rounds.

    Appearing from the thick, cold mists that blanket Nilfheim, a monstrosity approaches you. It appears to be a massive dog-like creature. Dark-gray, mangy fur covers its body, as well as dried up blood. In its open maw, it has dagger-like fangs that drip with an unknown black liquid. The terrible creature has four eyes, which all glow a baleful red. This beast is none other than Garm, The Hound of Nilfheim.

    Garm’s duty is simple, guard the entrance to Hel’s realm. Garm is much like the infamous Cerberus, in that he guards the gates of his master’s realm making sure nothing gets in or out without Hel’s permission. Occasionally, though very rare, Garm will wonder Nilfheim in search of food, returning immediately at Hel’s command.

    Garm stands 25 ft. tall at the should and is 30 ft. long. He weighs close to 8 tons. He does not speak, but understands all languages, due to varieties of creatures who have entered and exited the gates of Hel’s Realm.

    Combat: Garm loves to kill as many of his foes with his death gaze beam ability as possible before charging into melee combat. He will then attack his foes with his bite and claws, while relying on his blood for extra protection. If outnumbered Garm will result to using his breath weapon or howl to even the odds. If on the verge of defeat he will try to teleport his way out of the area, unless he’s defending the gates. If so, he’ll fight to the death.

    Breath Weapon (Su): Once every 1d6 rounds, Garm can spit forth his own blood in a 150 ft. line, or he could cough up his own blood in a 90 ft. cone. It deals 33d10 points of violated acid damage. Reflex save DC 55 halves damage. Those hit by the acid must succeed on Fortitude save DC 55 or become nauseated by the smell of it for 3d4 rounds, and slowed as the spell for 10 rounds, from the thickness of it. An extra Reflex save DC 55 negates the slow effect. The victim is allowed a Reflex save DC 55 each round for the next 10 rounds in order to wipe themselves clean of the blood, thus negating the slow effect. DCs are Con-based.

    Death Gaze Beam (Su): Once every minute, Garm can produce a red beam of concentrated evil and death from his eyes and unleash it upon his foes. The beam is 10 ft. wide and 150 ft. long. All creatures within range must succeed a Fortitude save DC 47 or die instantly. If successful, the creatures still take 20d8 points of negative energy damage. They are allowed a Fortitude save DC 47 to half the damage. DCs are Cha-based.

    Disease (Ex): Injury, bite or claw; Fortitude DC 55, initial damage 3d6 Con, secondary damage 3d6 Con. DC is Con-based.

    Garm’s Blood (Ex): Those attack Garm with piercing or slashing weapons cause his blood to spew forth from the wound dealing 6d8 points of violated acid damage. Reflex save DC 55 halves damage. Those who are hit by the blood must also succeed on a Fortitude save DC 55 or be sickened and slowed for 1 round. DCs are Con-based.

    Howl of the Nilfheim Hound (Su): Once every 1d6 rounds, as a standard action, Garm can let out a numbingly cold howl that drains the life force of all who hear it. The howl is a 130 ft. radius centered on Garm. It deals 27d8 points of cold damage and all within range gain 3d6 negative levels. A Fortitude save DC 55 halves the cold damage, while a Will save DC 55 halves the amount of negative levels. DCs are Con-based.

    Pounce (Ex): When Garm charges a target, he can make a full attack.

    Regeneration (Ex): Garm takes normal damage from epic, good, and mithral weapons, as well as good spells.

    Skirmish (Ex):Garm deals an extra 10d6 points of damage on all attacks made during a round in which it moves at least 10 ft. This attack applies only to attacks made on his turn and only affects living creatures with a discernable anatomy.

    Spell-Like Abilities: CL 50; DC 24 +spell level
    At will – animate dead, blur, cone of cold, create greater undead, detect chaos, detect good, detect law, desecrate, dispel good, ghoul touch, haste, obscuring mist, symbol of pain, unhallow, unholy aura
    9/day – anti-life shield, blasphemy, energy drain, greater teleport (self plus 1000 pounds), inflict critical wounds (mass), power word kill, slay living, symbol of death, wail of the banshee

    Stench (Ex): Garm reeks with the smell of dried up blood and decay. Those within 60 ft. of him must succeed a Fortitude save DC 55 or become nauseated while within range. If they managed to leave the range, they remain nauseated for 5 more rounds. Those grappling with Garm, must succeed a Fortitude save DC 55 or lose consciousness for 3d6 rounds.

    Howdy RAGNAROK!

    Just out of curiousity, do you own a copy of my Epic Bestiary Volume One? The reason I ask is that Garm is actually in that book.

    No big deal...and for what its worth I like your version a bit better.

    I actually don't have any of your books, but I've seen a preview of Surtr and now I'm trying to get one.
