    This bulky humanoid is covered in exposed musculature. Cartilage forms an exoskeleton of sorts, resembling a suit of patchwork armor. Its skull is covered with hardened bone, and two backswept horns protrude behind its eyes. Its chin is split, and its eyes are pupilless. It wears only a loincloth and a belt of humanoid skulls. It carries a wicked-looking polearm with a spearhead at one end and a curved blade on the other.

    Geran are hardworking, peaceful beings who strive to prosper in rocky badlands. Most are miners and hunters, relying on themselves for survival.

    Geran communities are orderly and law-abiding. Their simple homes are hillside abodes carved out of the badlands rock. Each home houses one geran family. A number of such homes will dot a large hill or series of hills.

    Geran mines are usually rather shallow. They are renowned for their success in mining various forms of gems. As a result, gerans are frequently sought by traders and treasure hunters. Outsiders to geran communities are always viewed with suspicion.

    Because of the intense heat, geran wear little clothing, usually just a loin cloth, and upon rare occasions, ornamental jewelry. When preparing for battle, a geran also adorns himself with a belt decorated with the skulls of those he has killed, with the intent of warning away intruders.

    A geran is usually 6 feet tall and weighs 200 to 250 pounds.

    Geran speak Belgoi, Gith, and their own language. Leaders often additionally speak Common.

    COMBAT

    Geran prefer to use psionics to ward off intruders. Failing that, they use their more lethal psionics or wade into melee. Geran have developed their own preferred weapon, a double weapon called an impaler. The large, curved, razor-sharp blade on the pole arm end is used to sever victims' heads to be added to the geran's collection. A geran will usually fight with its claws only if disarmed, considering such attacks barbaric.

    Geran are stealthy hunters, able to blend in with their surroundings with their territorial chameleon ability.

    Detonate (Ps): Once per day, a geran can detonate any solid object of no more than 1/2 lb in weight within 30 ft. Attended or magic items receive a DC 14 Fortitude save to negate this effect. Any creature or object within 20 feet of the detonation takes 3d4 points of bludgeoning damage (DC 14 Reflex for half). Any target in contact with the detonating object takes 3d6 points of slashing damage with no saving throw.

    Alternatively, a geran can hurl an object as a thrown weapon with a 20 foot range increment. The object detonates on impact, doing damage as above. Use a ranged touch attack to determine if the detonating object makes contact with its intended target. If it misses, use the throw splash weapon rules to determine in which square the object detonates.

    This is the equivalent of a 2rd-level power. Manifester level 5th.

    Psi-Like Abilities: 3/day—matter agitation; 2/day—ego whip (DC 14), id insinuation (DC 15, 2 targets)*; 1/day—inertial barrier, intellect fortress, matter manipulation, mind link, personal mind blank, psionic mind blank (DC 20), telekinetic force (DC 15), telekinetic thrust (DC 15), tower of iron will. Manifester level 5th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    *Includes augmentation for the geran's manifester level.

    Territorial Chameleon (Su): A geran can change the color and texture of its skin and equipment to match the natural terrain of its territory, gaining a +10 enhancement bonus on Hide checks. It takes a geran a week to adjust its chameleon power to a new territory, and during this week the geran must spend at least 6 hours each day wandering its new home to familiarize itself with the landscape.

    Weapon Familiarity: Gerans may treat impalers as martial weapons, rather than exotic weapons.

    Skills: Gerans have a +2 racial bonus on Profession (miner) checks.

    New Weapon

    Impaler: The impaler consists of a spear with a glaive-like blade mounted on the opposite end. An impaler is an exotic double weapon. You can fight with it as if fighting with two weapons, but if you do, you incur all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with two weapons, just as if you were using a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. If you use a ready action to set the spear end of an impaler against a charge, you deal double damage on a successful hit against a charging character.

    The spear end of an impaler deals 2d4 points of piercing damage and deals triple damage on a critical hit. The glaive end of an impaler deals 2d4 points of slashing damage and deals triple damage on a critical hit.
    Cost: 60 gp; Weight: 15 lb.

    This hairless humanoid is covered in mottled green, leathery skin. A thin membrane stretches between its arms and body, ending at the knees. It has somewhat pointed ears, glowing red eyes, and a vicious beak with needle-like teeth spaced around the edges.

    Harriers are arboreal predators found only in the hottest jungles. Harriers attack any living prey they encounter, even those much larger and deadlier (such as dragons). When live prey is scarce, they scavenge for food, eating any type of carrion, including their own dead. They have no natural predators, but count most humanoids as enemies.

    Harriers have no formal society, meeting only for short periods for courtship rituals and mating. A female harrier lays 2-8 eggs about three weeks after mating. She digs shallow pits for nests, dividing the eggs into two or three groups located several feet apart. Predators, including adult harriers, prevent most of the eggs from hatching into larvae. A month after the eggs are laid, 2-5 larvae hatch and begin to forage on their own. Only 1-2 live to mature into harriers.

    A harrier is slightly over 4 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds.

    Harriers speak their own rudimentary language.

    COMBAT

    Harriers lie in ambush on high branches and treetops. When prey approaches, they attack by swooping quickly toward opponents and using their claws and beak, while injecting painful toxin.

    Gliding (Ex): A harrier can use its wings to glide, negating any damage from a fall of any height and allowing travel 20 feet horizontally for every 5 feet of descent. A harrier glides at a speed of 40 feet (poor maneuverability).

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a harrier must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.

    Poison (Ex): Injury (bite), Fortitude DC 17; initial damage 1d3 Con damage plus 1d6 minutes of distracting pain (-1 penalty on attacks, armor class, skill and ability checks); secondary damage 1d3 Con damage plus severe pain (as distracting pain but -2 penalty) for 5d4 minutes. Penalties from multiple harrier poison attacks stack, to a maximum of -4. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +10 melee, damage 1d4+1.

    Superior Low-Light Vision (Ex): A harrier can see five times as far as a human can in dim light.

    Skills: Harriers have a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks, and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. *Harriers have a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks when in warm forest (or jungle) environments. This bonus on Hide checks increases to +8 when the harrier is immobile.

    This small, wormlike creature has mottled brown skin and a toothless beak.

    Harrier larvae are voracious monsters which devour any food they can find (usually carrion). If enough food is available, the larva matures rapidly, shedding its skin after two months. A nearly-mature larva has limbs and other organs visible just under its skin.

    Dire Lycanthrope (template)

    http://www.enworld.org/forum/general...eir-ilk-5.html

    Dire Lycanthrope

    Like standard lycanthropes, dire lycanthropes are humanoids or giants who can transform themselves into animals. However, they can shift into more powerful dire animals. In its natural form, a dire lycanthrope looks like any other members of its kind, though natural dire lycanthropes and those who have been afflicted for a long time tend to have or acquire features reminiscent of their animal forms such as thick, shaggy hair, pointed teeth, or long, strong fingers. In animal form, a lycanthrope resembles a powerful version of the dire animal, but on close inspection, its eyes (which often glow red in the dark) show a faint spark of unnatural intelligence.

    Like their lesser kin, dire lycanthropes can spread lycanthropy. Sometimes a lycanthrope begins life as a normal humanoid or giant who subsequently contracts lycanthropy after being wounded by a lycanthrope. Such a creature is called an afflicted lycanthrope. Other lycanthropes are born as lycanthropes, and are known as natural lycanthropes.

    Dire lycanthropes are far more rare than their standard brethren, and like many of the creatures they become, are nearly extinct.

    Creating a Dire Lycanthrope
    “Dire lycanthrope” is a template that can be added to any humanoid or giant (referred to hereafter as the base creature). The dire lycanthrope template can be inherited (for natural lycanthropes) or acquired (for afflicted lycanthropes). Becoming a dire lycanthrope is very much like multiclassing as an animal and gaining the appropriate Hit Dice.

    Size and Type: The base creature’s type does not change, but the creature gains the shapechanger subtype. The dire lycanthrope takes on the characteristics of some type of carnivorous or omnivorous creature of the animal type (referred to hereafter as the base animal).

    This animal can be any predator, scavenger, or omnivore with good Will saves (ie, is a dire animal, has the Dire SQ, or otherwise has good Will saves) whose size is from one size category smaller to two size categories larger than the base creature’s size (e.g. Small, Medium, Large or Huge for a Medium base creature). Dire lycanthropes can also adopt a hybrid shape that combines features of the base creature and the base animal. A dire lycanthrope’s hybrid form is the same size as the base animal or the base creature, whichever is larger.

    A dire lycanthrope uses either the base creature’s or the base animal’s statistics and special abilities in addition to those described here.

    Hit Dice and Hit Points: Same as the base creature plus those of the base animal. To calculate total hit points, apply Constitution modifiers according to the score the dire lycanthrope has in each form.

    Speed: Same as the base creature or base animal, depending on which form the dire lycanthrope is using. Hybrids use the base creature’s speed.

    Armor Class: The base creature’s natural armor bonus increases by +2 in all forms. In hybrid form, the dire lycanthrope’s natural armor bonus is equal to the natural armor bonus of the base animal or the base creature, whichever is better.

    Base Attack/Grapple: Add the base attack bonus for the base animal to the base attack bonus for the base creature. The dire lycanthrope’s grapple bonus uses its attack bonus and modifiers for Strength and size depending on the lycanthrope’s form.

    Attacks: Same as the base creature or base animal, depending on which form the dire lycanthrope is using. A lycanthrope in hybrid form gains two claw attacks and a bite attack as natural weapons.These weapons deal damage based on the hybrid form’s size. A hybrid may attack with a weapon and a bite, or may attack with its natural weapons. The bite attack of a hybrid is a secondary attack.

    Hybrid Size Claw Bite
    Small 1d3 1d4
    Medium 1d4 1d6
    Large 1d6 1d8
    Huge 2d4 2d6

    Damage: Same as the base creature or base animal, depending on which form the dire lycanthrope is in.

    Special Attacks: A dire lycanthrope retains the special attacks of the base creature or base animal, depending on which form it is using, and also gains the special attacks described below.

    A dire lycanthrope's hybrid form can use the special attacks of the base animal and the base creature. A dire lycanthrope spellcaster cannot cast spells with verbal, somatic, or material components while in animal form, or spells with verbal components while in hybrid form.

    Curse of Lycanthropy (Su): Any humanoid or giant hit by a natural dire lycanthrope’s bite attack in animal or hybrid form must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract lycanthropy. If the victim’s size is not within one size category of the lycanthrope the victim cannot contract lycanthropy from that lycanthrope. Afflicted lycanthropes cannot pass on the curse of lycanthropy.

    Special Qualities: A dire lycanthrope retains all the special qualities of the base creature and the base animal, and also gains those described below.

    Alternate Form (Su): A dire lycanthrope can assume the form of a specific dire animal (as indicated in its entry). It does not assume the ability scores of the animal, but instead adds the animal’s physical ability score modifiers to its own ability scores. A lycanthrope also can assume a bipedal hybrid form with prehensile hands and animalistic features.

    Changing to or from animal or hybrid form is a standard action. A slain dire lycanthrope reverts to its humanoid form, although it remains dead. Separated body parts retain their animal form, however. Afflicted lycanthropes find this ability difficult to control, but natural lycanthropes have full control over this power.

    Damage Reduction (Ex): An afflicted dire lycanthrope in animal or hybrid form has damage reduction 5/silver. A natural dire lycanthrope in animal or hybrid form has damage reduction 10/silver.

    Lycanthropic Empathy (Ex): In any form, dire lycanthropes can communicate and empathize with normal or dire animals of their animal form. This gives them a +4 racial bonus on checks when influencing the animal’s attitude and allows the communication of simple concepts and (if the animal is friendly) commands, such as "friend," "foe," "flee," and "attack."

    Low-Light Vision (Ex): A dire lycanthrope has low-light vision in any form.

    Scent (Ex): A dire lycanthrope has the scent ability in any form.

    Base Save Bonuses: Add the base save bonuses of the base animal to the base save bonuses of the base creature.

    Abilities: All dire lycanthropes gain +2 to Wisdom. In addition, when in animal form, a lycanthrope’s physical ability scores improve according to its kind, as set out in the table below. These adjustments are equal to the animal’s normal ability scores –10 or –11. A lycanthrope in hybrid form modifies its physical ability scores by the same amount.

    In addition, a dire lycanthrope may also gain an additional ability score increase by virtue of its extra Hit Dice.

    Skills: A dire lycanthrope gains skill points equal to (2 + Int modifier, minimum 1) per Hit Die of its animal form, as if it had multiclassed into the animal type. (Animal is never its first Hit Die, though, and it does not gain quadruple skill points for any animal Hit Die.) Any skill given in the animal’s description is a class skill for the lycanthrope’s animal levels. In any form, a lycanthrope also has any racial skill bonuses of the base creature and of the base animal, although conditional skill bonuses only apply in the associated form.

    Feats: Add the base animal’s feats to the base creature’s. If this results in a dire lycanthrope having the same feat twice, the lycanthrope gains no additional benefit unless the feat normally can be taken more once, in which case the duplicated feat works as noted in the feat description. This process may give the lycanthrope more feats than a character of its total Hit Dice would normally be entitled to; if this occurs, any “extra” feats are denoted as bonus feats.

    It’s possible that a dire lycanthrope cannot meet the prerequisites for all its feats when in humanoid form. If this occurs, the lycanthrope still has the feats, but cannot use them when in humanoid form. A dire lycanthrope receives Iron Will and Multiattack as bonus feats.

    Environment: Same as either the base creature or base animal.
    Organization: Solitary or pair, sometimes family (3–4), pack (6–10), or troupe (family plus related animals)
    Challenge Rating: By class level or base creature, modified according to the HD of the base animal: 1 HD or 2 HD, +2; 3 HD to 5 HD, +3; 6 HD to 10 HD, +4; 11 HD to 20 HD, +5; 21 or more HD, +6.
    Treasure: Standard.
    Alignment: Any. Noble creatures such as bears, eagles, and lions tend to produce good-aligned lycanthropes. Sinister creatures such as rats, snakes, and wolves tend to produce evil-aligned lycanthropes. This is a reflection of how these animals are perceived, not any innate quality of the animal itself, so the alignment of the animal form can be arbitrarily assigned.
    Advancement: By character class.
    Level Adjustment: Same as the base creature +2 (afflicted) or +3 (natural). In addition, a dire lycanthrope’s character level is increased by the number of racial Hit Dice the base animal has.

    Weresmilodons in humanoid form tend to be large and formidably muscled, with slightly pronounced upper canines. They prefer to dress in simple garments of leather or fur that are easy to remove, repair, or replace.

    The weresmilodon presented here is a 1st-level human warrior and natural lycanthrope, using the following base ability scores: Str 13, Dex 11, Con 12, Int 8, Wis 9, Cha 10.

    COMBAT

    Weresmilodon are canny fighters who prefer to wait for opponents to come to them before attacking, then leap or charge from ambush. Weresmilodon typically fight in hybrid form. They like to use their claws and fangs when charging opponents, since this allows them to use their pounce special attack, but usually rely on artificial weapons in regular melee.

    Alternate Form (Su): A weresmilodon can assume the form of a smilodon or a smilodon-humanoid hybrid.

    Augmented Critical (Ex): A weresmilodon deals triple damage if it scores a critical hit with its bite attack.

    Curse of Lycanthropy (Su): Any humanoid or giant hit by a weresmilodon’s bite attack in animal or hybrid form must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract lycanthropy.

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a weresmilodon must hit with a bite or claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.

    Pounce (Ex): If a weresmilodon in animal or hybrid form charges a foe, it can make a full attack with both its claws, a bite, and two rake attacks.

    Rake (Ex): A weresmilodon in animal or hybrid form gains two additional claw attacks against grappled foes or foes it pounces on (attack bonus +12, damage 1d6+4). Rake attacks are not subject to the normal -4 penalty for attacking with a natural weapon in a grapple.

    Sabre-Tooth Tiger Empathy (Ex): Communicate with tigers, smilodons, and dire tigers, and +4 racial bonus on Charisma-based checks against tigers, smilodons, and dire tigers.

    Scent (Ex): A weresmilodon can detect opponents within 30 feet. The exact location is not revealed unless the creature is within 5 feet.

    Skills: Weresmilodons gain a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, and Move Silently checks. *In forest terrain, their Hide bonus improves to +8.

    Dire werewolves in humanoid form are powerfully built, with a savage cast to their features. They often have mottled hair, usually grey with dark grey and black spots and patches, but a few have black hair with pale patches or white with darker patches.

    The dire werewolf presented here is based on a 1st-level half-orc warrior and natural lycanthrope, using the following base ability scores: Str 13, Dex 11, Con 12, Int 10, Wis 9, Cha 8.

    COMBAT

    In dire wolf or hybrid form, a dire werewolf can trip just as a normal dire wolf does. A dire werewolf in hybrid form often dispenses with weapon attacks, though it can wield a weapon and use its bite as a secondary natural attack.

    Alternate Form (Su): A dire werewolf can assume a bipedal hybrid form or the form of a dire wolf.

    Curse of Lycanthropy (Su): Any humanoid or giant hit by a dire werewolf’s bite attack in animal or hybrid form must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract lycanthropy.

    Trip (Ex): A dire werewolf in animal or hybrid form that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+13 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity.

    If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the werewolf.

    Wolf Empathy (Ex): Communicate with wolves and dire wolves, and +4 racial bonus on Charisma-based checks against wolves and dire wolves.

    Skills: A dire werewolf has a +2 racial bonus on Hide, Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks.

    *A dire werewolf in hybrid or wolf form gains a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.

    This roughly spherical creature pulls itself along the ocean bottom with a long tentacle.

    Giant noctiluca are motile dinoflagellates. They can be found in both salt and fresh water.

    A giant noctiluca is 3 feet in diameter and weighs 400 pounds.

    COMBAT

    Unlike other giant dinoflagellates, giant noctiluca are not photosynthetic and survive only by predation.

    Blinding Flash (Ex): All creatures within 20 feet or a giant noctiluca must succeed on a DC 19 Reflex save or be blinded for 1d6+1 rounds. Creatures that successfully save are dazzled for 1 round instead. Creatures beyond 10 fee. but within 60 feet must succeed on a DC 19 Reflex save or be blinded for 1 round. Once a noctiluca uses blinding flash, it can't flash again until 1d4 rounds later. The save DCs are Constitution-based and include a +2 racial bonus.

    Constrict (Ex): A giant noctiluca deals automatic tentacle damage with a successful grapple check.

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a giant noctiluca must hit with a tentacle attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict.

    Myopic (Ex): A giant noctiluca is nearsighted, resulting in a -8 racial penalty on Spot checks made beyond 30 feet.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): A giant noctiluca can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of a smaller size than itself by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 1d3+3 points of crushing damage plus 1d3 points of acid damage per round from the giant noctiluca's digestive fluids. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 10 points of damage to the interior (AC 11). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. A Medium giant noctiluca's interior can hold 2 Small, 8 Tiny, or 16 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

    *Adjusted for Point Blank Shot feat.

    This sturdily-built animal is covered with long spines, interspersed with bands of tough, thick, leathery skin. It has a squarish head, beady eyes and a short but broad tail.

    Quills resemble large porcupines, but are native to some of the most inhospitable reaches of the Great Wheel, even in places where it doesn't seem possible for a herbivore to exist. Although they favor scrubs and grasslands, quills have been spotted as far as Pandemonium, Acheron, Avernus, and the Plain of Infinite Portals.

    Quills are voracious foragers and grazers, able to chew their way through anything given enough time. Quills have been known to eat razorvine, bloodthorn, and ironmaw roots. Quills are naturally reclusive and usually forage only by night.

    Quills usually gather in small family groups comprising a mated pair and several offspring of various ages. They nest in labyrinthine burrows of 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 feet in diameter.

    Quill spines can be modified for use as blowgun darts or other light weapons, or as armor spikes. In some quarters of the Lower Planes, quill flesh is considered a delicacy.

    A typical quill is 4 to 6 feet long (sans tail) and weighs 200 to 300 pounds.

    COMBAT

    Quills are not particularly aggressive or territorial, and quickly withdraw from a confrontation with a predator. If a creature gets too close, the quill's first lines of defense are its throwing spines. If that doesn't deter an aggressor, the quill defends itself with its bite and its tail lash.

    Hunker Down (Ex): If a quill is threatened in melee and cannot retreat to a safe distance from its opponent(s), it curls its head and legs under its torso while on the ground and flares its quills in all directions. In this defensive position, the Reflex save DC of its quills special attack gains a +2 bonus (increasing it to DC 16 for a typical quill), but the quill's speed is reduced to 10 ft. and it cannot charge or run.

    Inexorable Gnawing (Ex): A quill can chew its way through almost anything with its powerful jaws and teeth. As a standard action, the quill can deal 2d6+3 damage to any immobile object, including victims opponents it has grappled and pinned. Inexorable gnawing ignores damage reduction and hardness of less than 10.

    Quills (Ex): Melee combat with a quill is dangerous. An opponent who attacks a quill with a melee weapon that does not have reach must succeed on a DC 14 Reflex save or be struck by 1d4 quills. Any opponent a quill hits with its tail attack must also succeed on a DC 14 Reflex save or be struck by 1d4 quills.

    Each quill does 1d3 point of piercing damage (plus half the quill's Strength bonus, if any) and lodges in the opponent's flesh, imposing a -1 circumstance penalty to attacks, saves, and checks per quill (maximum -4 penalty). Removing a quill inflicts 1d3 point of additional damage to the victim unless a DC 15 Heal check is made.

    Furthermore, a quill can also attack an opponent with 1d4 quills as a standard or secondary attack inflicting damage and additional effects as above, with no Reflex save to avoid the attack.

    The save DCs are Constitution-based.

    Shoot Quills (Ex): With a snap of its tail, a quill can loose a volley of four quills as a standard action (make an attack roll for each quill). This attack has a range of 30 feet with no range increment. All targets must be within 30 feet of each other. Any opponent hit by a shot quill must succeed on a DC 14 Reflex save or the quill will lodge in their flesh (see Quills, above, for the effects). A quill has 80 quills it can shoot from its tail, and regrows lost tail quills at a rate of 20 quills per 24-hour period.

    Skills: Quills have a +4 racial bonus on Climb checks.

    Crystal Nipper

    Speed: Swim 10 ft. (2 squares), climb 10 ft.
    Armor Class: 16 (+4 size, +2 Dex), touch 16, flat-footed 14
    Base Attack/Grapple: +9/-
    Attack: Swarm (3d6 plus infestation)
    Full Attack: Swarm (3d6 plus infestation)
    Space/Reach: 10 ft./0 ft.
    Special Attacks: Death hazard, distraction
    Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft., immunity to weapon damage, swarm traits, vermin traits
    Senses: Darkvision 60 ft.

    Abilities: Str 1, Dex 14, Con 10, Int -, Wis 10, Cha 3
    Skills: Climb +10, Hide +14*, Listen +0, Spot +0
    Feats: —
    Environment: Cold aquatic
    Organization: Solitary or scourge (2-5 swarms)
    Challenge Rating: 6
    Treasure: Standard (inorganic only)
    Alignment: Always neutral
    Advancement: —
    Level Adjustment: —

    A swarm of tiny eels made of blue crystal churn the water nearby.

    Crystal nippers are distant cousins of the rot grub, found in cold aquatic environments. A swarm of crystal nippers will eat anything living or once-living in its path, leaving inorganic treasures in their wake. They devour wood, leather, and other goods as well as flesh.

    COMBAT

    Crystal nippers are instinctively drawn to warm bodies and attempts to burrow into any area of exposed flesh.

    Death Hazard (Ex): Upon destroying a crystal nipper swarm, 1d6 crystal nippers remain, spreading throughout the space inhabited by the swarm. These crystal nippers behave as the hazard (see below). Destroying these remaining crystal nippers does not provide any additional experience points.

    Distraction (Ex): Any living creature that begins its turn with a crystal nipper swarm in its space must succeed on a DC 18 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.

    Infestation (Ex): Any living creature that takes damage from a crystal nipper swarm might also be infested with crystal nippers each round. A creature must make a successful DC 18 Reflex save to dodge the swarming nippers or bat them aside. The crystal nipper infesting the creature burrow into its flesh. An infested creature takes 1d4 points of Constitution damage per round, plus an additional 1d4 points of Constitution damage for each failed Reflex save against a crystal nipper swarm's attack. A successful DC 16 Fortitude save halves this damage. After 2d4 rounds, the sated crystal nippers crawl or swim away. A crystal nipper infestation can be removed with a successful DC 20 Heal check, though this check (whether successful or not) deals 1d6 points of damage to the infested target. Alternatively, a crystal nipper infestation can be destroyed by remove disease or any other effect that halts or counters a disease. Such spells destroy all the crystal nippers inhabiting a target.

    Medium or larger creatures that die from crystal nipper infestation spawn a new crystal nipper swarm within 2d4 days. Burning or otherwise destroying the body prevents this. Casting raise dead to restore a creature killed by a crystal nipper swarm but this does not destroy the crystal nippers infestation, casting remove disease or a similar spell in the round afterward removes the nippers normally. Resurrection and true resurrection destroy the crystal nipper when cast.

    The Reflex save DC is Dexterity-based. The Fortitude save DC is Constitution-based.

    Skills: A crystal nipper swarm has a +8 racial bonus on Move Silently checks, and adds its Dexterity modifier instead of its Strength modifier on Climb checks. A crystal nipper swarm can always choose to take 10 on a Climb check, even if rushed or threatened. A crystal nipper swarm has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    *A crystal nipper swarm has a +8 racial bonus on Hide checks while inside a corpse of at least Medium size. A crystal nipper swarm can enter and leave a corpse as part of a single move action.

    Crystal Nipper (CR 4): A distant cousin of the rot grub, a crystal nipper looks like a miniature eel made of blue crystal. Crystal nippers are Diminutive aquatic vermin with a swim speed of 5 ft. They are able to crawl onto land at a speed of 5 feet per minute, but can only spend an hour or so in the air, soon dying if they cannot enter water or moist flesh. A crystal nipper is physically frail (AC 13), and any damage dealt to one kills it. An unsuccessful melee attack with a natural weapon allows the crystal nipper a chance to burrow into the target.

    Anyone about to enter a square containing a crystal nipper can attempt a DC 20 Spot check to notice the nipper. Those who fail the check or ignore the creature risk exposure. Each round, the nipper makes a single touch attack (at a +5 bonus) against one living target in its square. If it succeeds, it hungrily burrows into the target’s flesh. A crystal nippers bite has anesthetic saliva, a victim who failed the Spot check will not notice the nipper burrowing under their skin unless they succeed at a DC 15 Wisdom check.

    An infested creature takes 1d3 points of Constitution damage per round (DC 16 Fort save for half). The damage continues until the infected creature dies or all the crystal nippers are removed or destroyed. Applying flame to the entry wound left by the crystal nipper will kill the crystal nipper, but the fire must be applied within 2 rounds and does 1d6 fire damage to the infected victim. A crystal nipper infestation can be removed with a successful DC 20 Heal check, though this check (whether successful or not) deals 1d6 points of damage to the infested target. Alternatively, a crystal nipper infestation can be destroyed by remove disease or any other effect that halts or counters a disease. Such spells destroy all the nippers inhabiting a target.

    Medium or larger creatures that die from crystal nipper infestation spawn a crystal nipper swarm within 2d4 days. Burning or otherwise destroying the body prevents this. Casting raise dead to restore a creature killed by crystal nipper infestation does not destroy the crystal nippers inside, but casting remove disease or a similar spell in the next round removes the nippers normally. Resurrection and true resurrection destroy the crystal nippers when cast.

    Knight Terror

    http://www.enworld.org/forum/general...gazine-20.html

    This flesh visible through this knight's helmet appears withered and pale.

    Knight terrors are formed from evil humanoids. Their origins are mysterious: some believe they are transformed by dark powers, while others believe magic to be the cause. Regardless, all knight terrors live among their former companions, feeding on their wills and emotions.

    A knight terror appears as it did prior to its transformation, as long as it remains sated. When starving for mental energy, it becomes withered and pale, and increasingly fearful and paranoid, jumping at shadows and suspicious of everyone. When fully fed, a knight terror is a bastion of courage.

    Knight terrors remain a part of the hierarchy to which they belonged before their transformation. They are generally leaders in their orders, as they are driven by ambition, and they gradually corrupt their followers while deriving strength from their mental fortitude. In this way, entire branches of knightly orders have been distracted from their original purposes and led down paths of evil.

    A knight terror speaks Abyssal and Infernal in addition to any languages it knew prior to acquiring the template.

    Creating a Knight Terror
    "Knight terror" is a template that can be added to any evil humanoid with a base Will save bonus of +4 or higher and a base attack bonus of +8 or higher (referred to hereafter as the base creature). A knight terror has all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

    Size and Type: The creature’s type changes to outsider. Do not recalculate Hit Dice, base attack bonus, or saves. Size is unchanged. Knight terrors are normally native outsiders.

    Special Attacks: A knight terror retains all the base creature’s special attacks and gains those described below.

    Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day—cause fear, charm person; 2/day—suggestion; 1/day—crushing despair, phantasmal killer. Caster level equals Hit Dice. The save DCs are Charisma-based and are further modified by the knight terror's will-draining abilities (see Will-Sapping Bolt and Wisdom Dependent).

    Will-Sapping Bolt (Su): At will, a knight terror may make a ranged touch attack against any creature within 30 ft. If the attack succeeds, the victim suffers 1d4 points of Wisdom damage, and the knight terror temporarily gains 1 point of Wisdom and Strength (up to its base ability score +10). Will-sapping also augments a knight terror's spell-like abilities, giving it a +1 save DC for every 2 points of increased Wisdom. The knight terror loses these temporary Str and Wis bonuses at a rate of 1 point every 12 hours; see Wisdom Dependent (below).

    Special Qualities: A knight terror retains all the base creature’s special qualities and gains darkvision 60 ft. and those described below.

    Wisdom Dependent (Su): Every 12 hours, a knight terror loses one point each of Wisdom and Strength. This is not ability damage or drain and cannot be recovered via spells such as restoration. The knight-terror can only regain this lost Wisdom and Strength by using its will-sapping bolt. When the knight terror's Wisdom drops below its base ability score, it suffers a -1 morale penalty on attack rolls and saving throws against fear effects. Furthermore, for every 2 points of Wisdom it loses, the knight terror suffers a -1 penalty to the save DCs of its spell-like abilities.

    Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Int +2, Cha +4.

    Environment: Any.
    Organization: Solitary or hierarchy (2-3).
    Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature + 2.
    Treasure: Standard.
    Alignment: Always evil, usually lawful.
    Advancement: By character class.
    Level Adjustment: Same as the base creature +4.

    Sample Knight Terror
    The following characters have acquired the knight terror template.

    Level Adjustment: +1 (cohort) or —

    This large canine closely resembles a dog with a bristly tuft of hair between its shoulders. Its eyes that practically burn with hatred and evil. Its wolfish snout has an overabundance of razor-sharp teeth.

    Created by a sorcerer ages ago, gnashers (and their cousins the winged gnashers) are hateful beasts that live to kill and maim. Gnashers live in packs led by their most brutal member, a position decided by vicious (but usually not fatal) combat. They only deliberately kill gnashers of rival packs.

    Gnashers avoid populated areas, but sometimes raid isolated settlements. A pack of gnashers will claim a territory until it has devoured every animal within it, then move on to a new territory. An area abandoned by gnashers is eerily quiet; it may take months before new animals dare enter a gnasher pack's old territory.

    Gnashers have an instinctive hatred of cooshees. The feeling has become mutual, and the two species always fight without quarter. Some scholars speculate gnashers were created as a weapon against the elven dogs.

    A typical gnasher is 5 feet long, stands 3 feet tall at the shoulder, and weighs 300 pounds. Coloration tends toward dark blacks, greys, and browns.

    Gnashers speak their own language, using a combination of barks, growls, and body language.

    COMBAT

    Gnashers are unpredictable, erratic opponents. The only consistency is their vicious malevolence. They are interested in their own survival as well as killing, but the ratio between these passions fluctuates wildly - the same gnasher may stalk and torment the weakest lamb in a flock one day, then charge into a group of hunters and fight to the death the next day. Gnashers can be crafty. They often avoid powerful foes to pick off the weak or isolated. Even a full belly may not satisfy a gnasher's lust to kill. Gnashers needlessly slaughter victims and leave the bodies to rot.

    When attacking, gnashers circle their opponents and lunge in with snapping jaws, jabbing and feinting until they spot weakness. They then dart in from all directions and swarm over their prey until it is dragged to the ground. Anything pulled down by this pack overrun attack has little chance of survival.

    The only hope many creatures have of escaping a gnasher pack is to climb somewhere the gnashers can't reach. However, gnashers have been known to wait until a "treed" victim dies from dehydration.

    Gnashers do not flee pain and even seem to revel in it. A wounded gnasher becomes even more aggressive.

    Pack Overrun (Ex): A pack of four or more gnashers may use the overrun attack. The pack overrun prevents a Large or smaller opponent from avoiding the overrun and does not provoke an attack of opportunity. In addition, if the pack successfully overruns its opponent the pack may immediately end its movement in the opponent's square and pin the opponent. Pinning in subsequent rounds still requires successful opposed grapple checks.

    For the overrun attempt and subsequent grapple checks, treat the gnasher pack as a single Large creature with strength equal to that of the strongest gnasher in the pack (so that the pack cannot overrun creatures larger than Huge). The gnashers' overrun and grapple checks also receive a bonus equal to the number of gnashers in the pack surrounding their target (that is, up to +8 for targets up to Medium, +12 for Large targets, and +16 for Huge targets). Furthermore, any adjacent gnashers can choose to deal damage with their bite attacks during the grapple.

    Skills: A gnasher has a +1 racial bonus on Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks, and a +2 racial bonus on Hide checks. *A gnasher has a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.

    This wormlike creature has a rounded head tipped with two tentacles. Its body flattens out and broadens in the trunk, narrowing where it meets the broad, paddle-shaped tail. A small tubular opening is found where the trunk meets the head, suggesting a mouth.

    Amiskwia is a prehistoric, soft-bodied marine invertebrate. It spends most of its time crawling across the muddy ocean floor looking for food. Amiskwia are primarily scavengers, but capture prey if given the chance. They can spend several hours at a time on dry land, and often leave the water to comb beaches for food or travel from one body of water to another.

    An amiskwia is 5 feet long and weighs 250 pounds.

    COMBAT

    Amiskwia is a simple predator, swimming or crawling toward prey and biting with its tubular mouth opening.

    Water Dependent (Ex): Amiskwia can survive out of the water for 10 minutes per point of Constitution (after that, refer to the drowning rules).

    Skills: An amiskwia has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    This creature resembles a centipede covered with the chitinous armor of a lobster. Its legs more closely resemble fins. Its jaws sport branching sets of feeding appendages.

    Sanctacaris is a primitive marine arthropod. It spends most of its time crawling across the muddy ocean floor looking for food. Sanctacaris are primarily scavengers, but capture prey if given the chance. They can spend several hours at a time on dry land, and often leave the water to comb beaches for food or travel from one body of water to another.

    A sanctacaris is 15 feet long and weighs 4,000 pounds or more.

    COMBAT

    Sanctacaris is a simple predator, swimming or crawling toward prey and biting with its large jaws.

    Armored Head (Ex): A sanctacaris gains a +3 circumstance bonus to its Armor Class when fighting in tunnels no larger than its Space.

    Skills: A sanctacaris has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    Originally appeared in Dragon Magazine #204 (1994).

    Inside my hands these petals browned;
    dried up falling to the ground,
    but it was already too late now.
    I pushed my fingers through the earth,
    returned this flower to the dirt;
    so it could live, I walked away now."
