    This beautiful dog is covered with thick white fur. It looks rather chubby, and relatively harmless

    Weisshunds are the result of centuries of breeding and training by specialized clerics of St. Cuthbert. As a result, they are rarely found outside of temples or shrines dedicated to that deity.

    Although they appear chubby and harmless, weisshunds are actually agile, lean, and strong. Their heavy, loose skin provides protection and agility. Weisshunds spend most of their time sleeping, enhancing their facade of harmlessness. Weisshund appear to be completely docile lapdogs until they are provoked into a fight.

    Most weisshund that are encountered are males. Females are generally kept for breeding purposes, and pregnant females are especially protected within the sanctuary. Females are able to become pregnant only twice per year, and litters are never larger than two puppies. When a puppy becomes six months old, it enters training for its future as a temple guardian.

    A weisshund is slightly more than 2 feet high at the shoulder and weighs about 200 pounds.

    Weisshunds cannot speak, but they understand Common.

    COMBAT

    A sleeping weisshund remains alert, awakening if an evil or hostile creature comes within range. At that point, it becomes extremely agitated, growling at the intruder, and attempts to alert one of its masters with loud barks. It will not allow the suspect out of its sight for any reason. As long as its captive does not threaten or attack the weisshund, its masters, or persons whom it has been trained to protect, the weisshund will not attack. As soon as the suspect makes an aggressive move, however, the weisshund enlarges its size and counterattacks.

    Detect Hostile Intent (Su): A weisshund is constantly aware of the presence of any creatures with hostile intent within 30 feet, and their direction (but not their specific location). The power detects active aggression, as opposed to vigilance. The weisshund cannot be surprised or caught flat-footed by creatures that are susceptible to mind-affecting powers. Additionally, a weisshund can make Sense Motive checks as a free action against anyone within 30 feet. This power can penetrate barriers, but 3 feet of stone, 3 inches of common metal, 1 inch of lead, or 6 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a weisshund must hit an opponent of of its size or smaller 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.

    Size Change (Su): At will, a weisshund can change its size in a fashion similar to the effect of an enlarge person spell. The weisshund gains a +8 size bonus to Strength, a –2 size penalty to Dexterity (to a minimum of 1), and a +4 size bonus to Constitution. It also suffers a –1 size penalty on attack rolls and AC due to its increased size. The weisshund's natural armor bonus improves by +2, and its claw damage improves to 1d6, while its bite damage improves to 2d6. The weisshund may assume Large size for up to 20 rounds each day. These rounds need not be consecutive. Returning to its normal size is a swift action.

    Skills: Weisshunds have a +4 racial bonus on Sense Motive checks. A weisshund's loose, elastic skin gives it a +4 racial bonus on Escape Artist checks. *This racial bonus increases to +8 for Escape Artist checks to escape a grapple. *Weisshunds have a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.

    Flies crawl over the mangy, sore-infested body of this pale, gaunt horse. Its hazy black eyes seem as deep as the darkest pits of the Abyss.

    Hacamuli is one of the favored messengers of Orcus. The Prince of the Undead generally employs Hacamuli only on missions of great importance, or to better strike fear into the hearts of his enemies.

    Hacamuli is 8 feet long and weighs 900 pounds.

    Hacamuli speaks Abyssal, Celestial, Draconic, and Infernal.

    COMBAT

    In battle, Hacamuli rears up on his hind legs and strikes with both his front hooves. Each hoof has its own special disastrous effect in addition to any damage dealt.

    Hacamuli's natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

    Curse of Decrepitude (Su): Every time Hamaculi hits with its right hoof, its opponent must succeed on a DC 31 Fortitude save or prematurely age. This imposes a -4 penalty to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution, and causes the victim's hair to turn white, skin to wrinkle, and posture to stoop. The penalty is not cumulative. Should the victim's Con drop to 0 they will die. This effect is permanent, but can be removed by a wish, miracle or break enchantment spell, or by drinking an elixir of youth or similar potion (the elixir removes the curse but does not reduce the drinker's age as it normally would). A spellcaster must succeed on a DC 30 level check to use break enchantment to remove the curse.

    Additionally, the opponent must succeed on a DC 31 Reflex save or its armor and clothing rots away or dissolves into rust. Hamaculi can also use its right hoof attack to destroy unattended objects up to a 10-foot-cube in size. Unattended magical items are allowed a DC 31 Fortitude save to avoid dissolution. The save DCs are Constitution-based.

    Disease (Ex): Greater demon fever—left hoof, Fortitude DC 31, incubation period 1d3 days, damage 2d6 Con. A victim must succeed at another saving throw or 2 points of temporary damage is permanent drain instead. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Rebuke Undead (Su): Hacamuli can rebuke and command undead as a 20th-level cleric. Hacamuli can make up to fourteen rebuke attempts per day.

    Spell-Like Abilities: At will—deeper darkness, greater teleport (self only); 3/day—quickened greater teleport (self only). Caster level 22nd. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    Summon Undead (Sp): Once per day, Hacamuli can summon 2d6 shadows with a 60% chance of success or 1d4 vampires with a 50% chance of success. This ability is the equivalent of a 9th-level spell (CL 22nd).

    Thanatist Gaze (Su): 30 feet, Fort DC 29 negates, bestows 3 negative levels. Any creature drained to 0 levels by Hacamuli's gaze dies and is immediately transformed into a bodak under Hacamuli's permanent command. The save DC is Charisma-based.

    Tomb-Tainted (Ex): Although an outsider, Hacamuli is harmed by positive energy and healed by negative energy. It is treated as undead for purposes of spells and effects that treat undead differently (such as searing light or holy water). Hacamuli may be turned as if it were an undead creature with +6 turn resistance.

    This small, bipedal humanoid is covered in greenish-brown fur. Yellow and pink feathered wings sprout from its back, and its hands and feet end in paws. It has one great eye in the center of its face, no nose, and a rather large mouth with two rows of sharp teeth. A forked tongue flicks out occasionally, sampling the air.

    Hagertrals are race of reclusive winged humanoids found high in the mountains. They are carnivorous, preferring the flesh of mountain fowl, monkeys, rabbits, fish and halflings. The latter has given them a poor reputation among other humanoid races.

    Hagertrals hide their treasure in the wilderness or on high isolated mountains, for fear of inviting thieves into their lair. Hargertrals worship the sky as supreme goddess of all, and clerics of the race always choose the Air domain, and most select Weather as a secondary domain.

    A hagertral is 3 feet tall, with a wingspan of 8 feet. An average member of the species weighs 30 to 35 pounds.

    Hagertrals speak Common and their own language, which consists of a series of whistles, grunts, moans and clicks.

    COMBAT

    Hagertrals generally adopt an "attack first, ask questions later" approach to other creatures. In battle, hagertral fight with tooth and nail. Occasionally, hagertrals wield magical weapons taken from previous adversaries.

    Skills: Hagertrals have +2 racial bonus on Hide, Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks and a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks.

    A nearby bush seems trimmed into the shape of an animal. It seems odd to find a well-manicured topiary this far in the wilderness...

    Topiary plants are plants that mimic the shapes of animals they consume. Topiary plants are scavengers, preferring dead prey to living.

    A typical topiary plant usually resembles an animal between 5 and 8 feet long, although its basic form is a thorny bush about 4 feet across. The plant weighs 100 pounds.

    COMBAT

    Topiary plants are normally non-aggressive, but if food is scarce, they may attack. A topiary plant "bites" with its thorn-covered branches, injecting a weak toxin into its victim.

    Poison (Ex): Injury, Fortitude DC 13, initial damage 1d3 Con, secondary damage 1d3 Con. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a -2 racial penalty.

    Resemble Shape (Su): A topiary plant can imitate the appearance of any creature it has eaten. The topiary plant need not have killed the creature itself, but if the creature has been dead for more than two weeks it is too decayed for the plant to mimic its living appearance. This works like the disguise self spell, except the topiary plant retains its original size and can resemble any living creature. The topiary plant's appearance retains vegetative features (vine-like fingers, thorny hair, a greenish complexion, et cetera), so it only gains a +4 bonus to Disguise checks when using this ability to disguise itself.

    Advanced Topiary Plants
    An advanced topiary plant can use resemble shape to give itself an additional secondary attack for every 2 hit dice it has advanced (e.g. 1 secondary attack at 5-6 HD, 2 at 7-8 HD and 3 at 9 HD). These attacks can be any natural weapon possessed by a creature the topiary plant has eaten, but the attack always does 1d4 damage, or 1d6 for a Large topiary plant.

    This creature has the golden brown body of a lion, the wings of a giant eagle, and the face of a human.

    Like their lesser brethren, greater lammasus are noble creatures that are concerned with the welfare and safety of all good beings. They are stronger, smarter, and greater spellcasters, and are often found leading prides of lammasus.

    A greater lammasu is about 10 feet long, stands 5 foot at the shoulder, and weighs about 1,400 pounds.

    Greater lammasus speak Abyssal, Celestial, Common, Draconic, and Infernal, and can communicate telepathically.

    COMBAT

    Like other lammasu, greater lammasus blend spells with ferocious claws to bring the battle to the forces of evil.

    Blessed Healer (Su): Any healing spell or spell-like ability a greater lammasu casts has all variable, numeric effects increased by one-half. This increase stacks with that from Empower Spell or Empower Spell-Like Ability, so if a greater lammasu casts an empowered cure light wounds, it heals +100% points.

    Depart (Su): Once per week, a greater lammasu may cast astral projection (caster level 18th). The ability affects only the lammasu.

    Ethereal Jaunt (Su): A greater lammasu can shift from the Ethereal Plane to the Material Plane as a free action, and shift back again as a move action. This ability is otherwise identical with ethereal jaunt (caster level 15th).

    Magic Circle against Evil (Su): A greater lammasu radiates a continuous magic circle against evil that affects a 20-foot radius.

    Pounce (Ex): If a greater lammasu charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

    Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +19 melee, damage 1d8+4.

    Spell-Like Abilities: At will—dimension door, greater teleport (self only), invisibility (self only); 2/day—greater invisibility (self only); 1/day—holy word (DC 21). Caster level 12th.

    Spells: A greater lammasu casts spells as a 12th-level cleric, and can choose spells from the cleric spell list, plus any two of the following domains: Good, Healing, Knowledge, or Law.

    Typical Cleric Spells Prepared (6/7+1/5+1/5+1/4+1/4+1/2+1; save DC 15 + spell level; abjuration and evocation spells save DC 16 + spell level):
    0—detect magic, guidance (2), light, read magic, resistance;
    1st—bless (2), detect evil, divine favor, entropic shield, protection from evil*, remove fear;
    2nd—aid*, bear’s endurance, bull’s strength, lesser restoration, owl's wisdom, resist energy;
    3rd—daylight, dispel magic, magic circle against evil*, prayer, remove curse, searing light;
    4th—death ward, dimensional anchor, divine power, holy smite*, neutralize poison;
    5th—break enchantment, dispel evil*, mark of justice, righteous might, symbol of sleep;
    6th—Banishment, blade barrier*, find the path.
    *Domain spell. Domains: Good and Healing.

    Skills: Greater lammasus have a +2 racial bonus on Spot checks.

    This immense moth is covered with fine fur. Its wings are convered in a brilliant blue, red, yellow, and green pattern. It unleashes a piercing screech that sounds like a warning siren.

    Gargantua are truly monstrous species, both in size and ferocity. Whether they are throwbacks to another age, aberrations of natural processes, or results of crazed magical experiments is unknown. Their arrival is heralded by earth tremors, swirling waters or crashing waves, and thunderous roars. The appearance of a gargantua is usually treated as a national emergency and every resource is mobilized to ensure their riddance.

    Insectoid gargantua make their lairs in warm mountain valleys and caverns. They eat all types of game and vegetation. They prefer mulberry trees, and in just a few hours, a hungry insectoid gargantua can consume an entire grove of them.

    A females insectoid gargantua lays only a single gigantic egg each decade, and only 20% of such eggs are fertile. Once hatched, the larval insectoid gargantua grows rapidly, spinning a cocoon and entering the pupal stage in five weeks. It remains a pupa for 2-8 weeks, finally emerging as a fully-grown insectoid gargantua.

    A typical insectoid gargantua is 60 foot long, has a 150-foot wingspan, and weighs 100 tons. Fur coloration is usually gray or black. Insectoid gargantua have a lifespan of several centuries.

    An insectoid gargantua cannot speak, but scholars believe it may have a language it uses among its own kind, or even between other gargantua.

    COMBAT

    Most gargantua are mindless brutes bent on destruction for destruction's sake. An insectoid gargantua tries to blow lesser opponents away with a windstorm, or land on them and crush its foes with its bulk. Enemies of Huge size or larger are usually attacked with flyby attacks.

    Crush (Ex): A jumping or flying insectoid gargantua can land on opponents as a standard action, using its whole body to crush them. Its crush attack is effective only against Large or smaller opponents (though it can attempt normal overrun or grapple attacks against larger opponents).

    A crush attack affects as many creatures as can fit under the insectoid gargantua's body. Creatures in the affected area must succeed on a DC 43 Reflex save or be pinned, automatically taking bludgeoning damage during the next round unless the gargantua moves off them. If the gargantua chooses to maintain the pin, treat it as a normal grapple attack. Pinned opponents take damage from the crush each round if they don’t escape. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Windstorm (Ex): As a full-round action, an insectoid gargantua can hover in place and create a super-tornado force storm. Once started, it can continue this windstorm with a move action each round. The insectoid gargantua's windstorm can affect a 600-foot cone, or a cylinder with a radius and height of 200 feet (it can choose a different area each round). All flames in the region are extinguished. Ranged attacks are impossible to make while the windstorm is in effect (except for siege weapons or kaiju ranged attacks, which suffer a -8 penalty to attack). Listen checks are impossible.

    Creatures of Large or smaller size on the ground must succeed on a DC 49 Fort save or be knocked prone and roll 1d10×10 feet, sustaining 1d6 points of nonlethal damage per 10 feet. Huge creatures on the ground must succeed on the same saving throw or be knocked prone, while Gargantuan creatures on the ground are checked if they fail this save. The save DC is Strength-based.

    Flying creatures of Large or smaller size are blown back 2d10×10 feet and sustain 3d6 points of nonlethal damage if they fail the same saving throw. Huge flying creatures are blown back 1d6×10 feet and Gargantuan flying creatures are blown back 1d6×5 feet, but neither take any damage.

    Skills: An insectoid gargantua has a +8 racial bonus on Climb, Listen, and Spot checks. It can take 10 on Climb checks, even if threatened or distracted.

    Silk Strand (Ex): A larval insectoid gargantua can shoot a strand of sticky silk up to 300 feet. Any creature struck by a silk strand is entangled for 2d4 rounds and must make a DC 31 Reflex save or be stuck to the ground, unable to move. Even on a successful save, it can move at only half speed. A winged flying creature is not stuck to the ground, but it must make a DC 31 Reflex save or fall to the ground and be stuck there by the silk. The save DCs are Constitution-based.

    A creature stuck to the ground by the gargantua's silk strand can break free with a successful DC 20 Strength check, or by dealing 25 points of damage to the strand with a slashing weapon. A creature trying to scrape glue off itself, or a creature assisting another creature to do so, need not make an attack roll; hitting the strand is automatic. For each hit, the attacking creature makes a damage roll. Once free, however, the creature is still entangled until the adhesive wears off.

    The larval insectoid gargantua often continues to shoot silk strands onto creatures that are already stuck in order to prevent escape. Each additional strand that hits a target increases the DC of the Strength check to break free by 2 and adds 10 hit points to the gluey mass and 2 rounds to the duration of the victim's entanglement.

    Trample (Ex): Reflex half DC 37. The save DC is Strength-based.

    In Kara-Tur
    While most insectoid gargantua make their homes high upon remote mountains, far from civilized lands, a notable exception is the Isle of Gargantua. One of the Outer Isles off the southwestern tip of Wa, this island is inhabited entirely by gargantua of various types.

    This being has a body like a man but its head is that of a bizarre monster, with flat but powerful jaws, tusks jutting from its lower lip, flapping ears like an elephant and goggling eyes. While the rest of his body looks human, it is extraordinarily sturdy and muscular, almost dwarf-like in proportions. Its skin is a bright and uniform color.

    Yakshas are male nature spirits distantly related to rakshasas. The females, called yakshini, differ greatly in both appearance and abilities. Most yakshas are benevolent or at worst neutral in alignment, only attacking those who despoil their wilderness home or threaten their kin. Evil yakshas can be maneaters as bloodthirsty as a rakshasa. Even good yakshas are fierce and unpredictable creatures.

    Friendly yakshas habitually use their change shape power to make their heads look human while retaining their pastel skin color. They know that many races find their bestial faces disturbing, and may even consider their natural appearance an embarrassment. Yakshas are on good terms with many sylvan creatures and are known to associate with nagas, but even evil yakshas mostly shun their rakshasa relatives due to the irreconcilable differences in their alignment.

    A yaksha is about the same height and weight as a dwarf. Yaksha come in a wide range of colors - blue, green, orange and red are the most common, but black, purple, yellow or many other shades have been recorded.

    Yakshas speak Common and Sylvan, and either Abyssal or Celestial, depending upon their alignment (chaotic neutral yakshas choose one or the other).

    COMBAT

    A yaksha will usually be invisible when encountered. If they disapprove of their visitors, good or neutral yakshas will try to drive them away with mysterious noises, shouted warnings, frightening illusions and "warning shots" with hurled rocks. Evil yakshas simply try to kill (and maybe eat) unwanted intruders as expediently as possible.

    Yakshas are ferocious warriors but can be cunning too, using magical trickery, shape-changing and traps to deal with opponents almost as often as their rocks and clubs. For example, they may offer opponents a feast created with create food and water and create wine in the hope of making their enemies gorged and drunken.

    In battle, yaksha prefer to repeatedly ambush opponents with thrown rocks, using invisibility to withdraw and reposition themselves between each attack. They may negotiate with a stronger opponent to arrange a ceasefire, or even give up territory or tribute, but usually fight to the death rather than be captured.

    Change Shape (Su): A yaksha can assume any animal or humanoid form of its own size or smaller, or revert to its own form, as a standard action. A yaksha remains in one form until it chooses to assume a new one. A change in form cannot be dispelled, but the yaksha reverts to its natural form when killed. A true seeing spell reveals its natural form.

    Rock Throwing (Ex): Yakshas are accomplished rock throwers and receive a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls when throwing rocks. A yaksha of at least Medium size can hurl rocks weighing 20 pounds each (Tiny objects) up to five range increments, with a range increment of 180 feet. It uses both hands when throwing a rock. A Large yaksha can hurl rocks of 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects).

    Spell-Like Abilities: At will—invisibility (self only); 3/day—quickened invisibility (self only); 1/day—create food and water, create wine (as create water, but wine instead), major creation (created vegetable matter is permanent), persistent image (DC 15), wind walk. Once per day, a yaksha can assume gaseous form (as the spell) for up to 1 hour. Caster level 18th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    Skills: A yaksha has a +4 racial bonus on Bluff and Disguise checks. *When using change shape, a yaksha gains an additional +10 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks.

    This beautiful fish has a long, tapered body covered with shimmering scales. Its graceful motion is reminiscent of a stream of sparkling diamonds.

    Iridescent plecos are omnivorous subterranean fish found in bodies of fresh water where luminous lichen or other sources approximate natural lighting. These fish scavenge rotting flesh and plants and objects thrown into the water. Although they have few natural predators, humanoids occasionally hunt them for their gemlike scales. Such hunts are futile, as the lustre leaves their malodorous skins upon death.

    Adult iridescent plecos can be as little as 6 inches long, but most range from 1 to 2 feet long and weigh between 1 and 4 pounds.

    COMBAT

    Iridescent plecos are non-aggressive, usually attacking only in self-defense. Although the bony ridges of their mouths cause little harm, their barbels transmit a dangerous disease.

    Disease (Ex): Iridescent fever—bite, Fortitude DC 12, incubation period 1d3 days, damage 1d3 Str and 1d3 Con. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.

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

    Skills: An iridescent plecos can use its Strength modifier or its Dexterity modifier for Swim checks. A plecos 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.

    In the Realms
    Subterranean fish particularly thrive in the underground caverns of Undermountain where the forest streams of Wyllowwood and the River Sargauth flow.

    What originally appeared to be an object now shows signs of organic life as the creature sprouts a lashing pseudopod.

    Greater mimics are a larger, more intelligent version of the common mimic with limited magical powers. Most sages agree that they are not a separate species, but are ordinary mimics of exceptional size and cunning that have been mutated by subterranean magical forces.

    A greater mimic has the same personality as its smaller kin, being interested solely in its own security, food, and wealth - in that order. They may form alliances with other creatures, but will dispassionately devour their allies the instant the relationship ceases being useful.

    Greater mimics speak Common and Undercommon. They usually "speak" by creating an illusion of a humanoid, but can talk with their actual mouths.

    Combat

    A greater mimic imitates a room or small cavern and tries to lure prey into stepping inside this chamber, often using illusions or treasure as bait. Once victims enter this chamber, the mimic snaps the entrance close and fastens onto its prey with adhesive, then collapses its body and attempts to crush its victims to death. Should opponents refuse to enter its chamber, a greater mimic can exude adhesive-coated pseudopods and try to drag them into its crushing interior.

    A greater mimic will fight to the death if it has no alternative, but prefers to negotiate surrender or withdrawal when a foe threatens its life. It may offer treasure (or demand tribute!) as additional inducement.

    Adhesive (Ex): A greater mimic exudes a thick slime that acts as a powerful adhesive, holding fast any creatures or items that touch it. An adhesive-covered mimic automatically grapples any creature it hits with its slam or engulf attack. Opponents so grappled cannot get free while the mimic is alive without removing the adhesive first.

    A weapon that strikes an adhesive-coated mimic is stuck fast unless the wielder succeeds on a DC 23 Reflex save. A successful DC 23 Strength check is needed to pry it off. The save DCs are Constitution-based.

    Strong alcohol dissolves the adhesive, but the mimic still can grapple normally. A mimic can dissolve its adhesive at will, and the substance breaks down 5 rounds after the creature dies.

    Crush (Ex): A greater mimic can deal 2d6+10 points of damage with a successful grapple check. It can deal 4d6+20 points of damage without needing a grapple check against opponents it has engulfed (see below).

    Engulf (Ex): A greater mimic can use its mimic shape power to form a cavity within its body that imitates a room, natural cavern or other chamber. A Huge greater mimic can form a chamber up to a 10-foot cube in size, a Gargantuan greater mimic can form up to a 20-foot cube chamber and a Colossal greater mimic can form a 30-foot cube chamber. Greater mimics can open multiple chambers within their body, but usually choose to form themselves into a single room or cave.

    A greater mimic can snap open and close the entrances to its chamber(s) as a free action, trapping any creatures within. It can also trap creatures by simply moving over them, affecting as many as it can cover. Opponents can escape this engulf attack if they succeed at a DC 27 Reflex save, thereby leaping out of the "door" before it seals or avoiding the mimic's advance. They can also make opportunity attacks against the greater mimic, but if they do so they are not entitled to a saving throw against the engulf. An opponent who fails this reflex save will become stuck inside the mimic by its adhesive (see above).

    In addition, a greater mimic can use its pseudopods to pull a grappled opponent into its chamber with a successful grapple check. The opponent is not entitled to a Reflex save or an attack of opportunity in this circumstance, but any creatures within the chamber who are not adhered to the mimic may attempt a DC 27 Reflex save to escape.

    A greater mimic can use its crush attack against all opponents it has engulfed without needing to succeed at a grapple check, simply by slamming its walls, floor and ceiling together. This does twice the damage of its normal crush attack (4d6+20 for a typical greater mimic).

    A Huge greater mimic can engulf 2 Large creatures, 8 Medium creatures, 32 Small creatures, 128 Tiny creatures and 512 Fine or smaller creatures.

    The save DCs are Strength-based.

    Illusions (Sp): A greater mimic can create illusions with visual, auditory, olfactory and thermal components equivalent to a major image spell (caster level 15th), except it can only create illusions within 10 ft. of its body or inside a chamber formed with its body.

    Mimic Shape (Ex): A greater mimic can assume the shape of any solid object that fills roughly 1000 cubic feet (10 feet by 10 feet by 10 feet), such as a massive statue, a buttress, or a small gatehouse. The creature can double its volume by opening chambers within its body, which it uses to trap prey (see Engulf, above). A greater mimic's body is hard and has a rough texture, no matter what appearance it might present. Anyone who examines the greater mimic can detect the ruse with a successful Spot check opposed by the mimic's Disguise check. Of course, by this time it is generally far too late.

    Skills: A greater mimic has a +8 racial bonus on Disguise checks.

    This tiny humanoid is vaguely mole-like, with large, protruding ears and a long snout. Its torso is covered with coarse brown fur, while the rest of its body is hairless. Its light gray skin is rough and scaly.

    Dragites, or "dragon mites" as they are sometimes called, are tiny fey that make their homes in the lairs of any dragons who will tolerate them. Dragites are fair miners, and live in small tunnels dug in the walls and floor of a dragon's lair. These timid scavengers are easy prey for other creatures, and without their dragon protectors, dragites soon would be extinct.

    Dragites dedicate their lives to their dragon host. They feed upon the scavenged leftovers of the dragon's meals (keeping the dragon's lair clean in the process), and supplement their diet with whatever food they can gather on their own. The dragites keep their host dragon clean and tend its wounds. A dragon who allows dragites into its lair is generally healthier than one that does not. Dragites serve as scouts and spies for their host dragon, and sometimes as sentries, waking their sleeping host when hostile creatures approach. A host dragon might even use dragites as a form of currency, trading a few of its dragites to another of its kind for a bit of treasure.

    Dragites have one major flaw that prevents them from being welcomed in all dragons' lairs: they covet shiny objects, particularly brightly colored gems and jewelry. As a result, they frequently filch these items from the dragon's hoard, along with the occasional gold or platinum coin or small magic item. If gone unchecked, a tribe of dragites can steal up to one-tenth of a dragon's hoard and hide it out of the dragon's reach in their tiny tunnels. Very patient and kind dragons can, occasionally, persuade their dragites to return an important item -- particularly if they have access to charm magics.

    A typical dragite is 1 foot tall and weighs 2 pounds. Dragites reproduce once every three years, and have a lifespan of around 40 years.

    All dragites speak Sylvan, and those with a high enough intelligence to gain additional languages always learn Draconic as their first bonus language.

    COMBAT

    Dragites are shy, peaceful, and usually inoffensive, bearing no malice toward any other creatures. If faced with danger, they attempt to flee into their small tunnels or any other cramped space. A dragite will fight only to defend its mate or offspring.

    Care For Dragon (Ex): A colony of dragites can tend a sickly or injured dragon. While being cared for by dragites, a dragon's natural healing recovers hit points and ability damage at three times the normal rate, and it gains a +3 bonus to its saving throws against poison and disease. The increased natural healing does not stack with the long-term care provided by the Heal skill. It takes at least one dragite per racial hit dice of the dragon to provide this care.

    Myopic (Ex): Dragites are nearsighted, resulting in a -8 racial penalty on Spot checks made beyond 30 feet.

    Skills: Dragites have a +2 racial bonus on Craft (trapmaking) and Profession (miner) checks and a +4 racial bonus on Escape Artist, Hide, and Move Silently checks. *Dragites dye their fur to match their dragon's coloration, granting them a +5 circumstance bonus on Hide checks made within a the lair of a dragon with similarly-colored scales.

    SOCIETY

    Dragite tribes consist of equal numbers of male and female adults, plus 20% noncombatant young of both sexes. Wyrm or great wyrm host dragons often have dragite tribes two or three times normal size. Most tribes also will have a dozen or so leaders of average intelligence, capable of speaking Draconic. These leaders are the only dragites allowed to communicate directly with the dragon. The tribe's only lord is the host dragon, so all leaders are of equal rank beneath it.

    Each dragite reveres the dragon and will do almost anything the dragon commands, short of charging directly into combat. The will, however, set traps for, steal from, or harry invaders. A tribe of dragites leaves a dragon's lair only when driven out.

    I pushed my fingers through the earth,
    returned this flower to the dirt;
    so it could live, I walked away now."
