    Skills: Skulking bladders do not get skill points in the normal way, instead they have skill ranks in the following skills equal to the caster level of the spell that created them: ???
    The following table gives the non-skill-rank bonuses for various sizes of Skulking Bladder
    Spell-like Abilities: Levitate, at-will, self-only, caster-level feet above a solid surface only (allows them to hover so as to pick door-locks)
    Continuous Detect Magic

    Lone Assassin (Ex): Skulking bladders may never use the Aid Another action, and never respond to attempts at communication in any way beyond acknowledging if they hear and understand. They can not speak, but understand (and can read) all languages known by their creator.

    Reversed order of Turn Resistance, since the smaller ones are actually usually MORE useful.

    Poison neutralized within 1 round if not in at least 8 oz of other material (usually food or drink).

    Poison has:
    SR vs: Delay Poison, Detect Poison, Detoxify, Neutralize Poison, and similar spells and effects. Increases DC of alchemy attempts to detect by 1/2 caster level. If the caster of a curative or delaying spells is casting it themselves, rather than from a scroll, wand, potion, or etc (pearls of power don't count), the poison has been identified (from symptoms, alchemical analysis, Detect Poison, etc) then they get a +2 untyped bonus to their caster level check.

    Bypasses Magic Item protection if item doesn't beat SR. Bypasses class immunity to poison on a check of applicable class levels vs same DC as SR.


    Cost to create based on total number of doses it can create in its lifetime? Total number of "refills" (including initial contents)?
    Regardless of the spell used the creature is automatically under the control of the creator and counts against the Animate Dead control pool as if it was created with that spell.

    Substitute Knock for Open Lock and/or require it for creation?

    Consider Geas/Quest if just adding Enhance Poison to the creation list... or copy Enhance Poison over here to simply things! Point is you want to require 11th level, and having to click a link might lose people's interest.

    Idea: Have skulking bladders disintegrate into nothingness along with all tools provided when mission complete or destroyed. Less evidence, and solves a lot of concerns about breaking the economy and scouting use.
