    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Beerly Bee-Loved is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Bee or bee-like creature that has become addicted to Bee-r, and that has an Int of 3 or higher. As such they become sloppy drunks who constantly bemoan their lack of romantic possibilities. They also get 'huggy'.

    Cam-Bee-On also inspired by Nrdman

    Cam-Bee-On is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Outsider of Evil Alignment, usually Demons. Geneally one becomes a Cam-Bee-On by being cursed by Beelzebub or one of his disciples in his lazy, but eternal, quest for domination of the fiendish planes. They appear as normal fiends with bee-like attributes, and stingers in their abdomens.

    Attacks: Unchanged.

    Damage: Your attacks are now considered Lawful and Evil for purposes of overcoming Damage Reduction.

    Special Attacks: Retains all Special Attacks of the Base Creature, except as follows:

    Any spells, spell like abilities, or supernatural abilities that have a Chaotic alignment descriptor are replaced with a similar Lawful spell from the same school, same level, same spell list if possible. Optionally they may select a spell of the same Level from the Bee Magic List.

    Summoning abilities still summon the same Fiend as normal, but they summon one with the Cam-Bee-On Template.

    They also gain the following:

    Stinger (Su): The Cam-Bee-On has a retractable Stinger in it's Abdomen. It rarely uses this as an attack as it looks like they're trying to dry hump their opponent with their belly. The Stinger allows them to do 2d6+Str modifier untyped damage with a successful Grapple Checks. The stinger is also poisoned: Injury, Fort Save (Save DC is Con based), Initial and Secondary damage is 1d6 Con. If the opponent is an Outsider that the Cam-Bee-On Template can be applied to they must make a Save or gain the Cam-Bee-On Template (this effect is not a Poison, and Immunity to poison does not affect it).

    Improved Grapple (Ex): Cam-Bee-On's can make initiate a Grapple without provoking an Attack of Opportunity, and gain a +4 Racial Bonus on Grapple Checks.

    Special Qualities: Retains all Special Qualities of the Base Creature, and gains the following:

    Hivemind (Ex): All Cam-Bee-On's within 50 miles of their designated leader (or on the same Plane as Beelzebub) are in constant communication. If one is aware of a particular danger, they all are. If one in a group is not flat-footed, none of them are. No Cam-Bee-On in a group is considered flanked unless all of them are.

    Advanced Hivemind (Su): Advanced Hive Minds can share knowledge. When using the Aid Another option you grant a +4 Bonus instead of the usual +2. Any member of the Hivemind can use a Feat or Skill possessed by any other member of the Hivemind as a Standard Action that provokes an Attack of Opportunity. Once the member goes through this short meditation, he may use the Skill Ranks of any member of the Hivemind (but uses his own ability modifier) for 1 Minute, or gains access to any 1 Feat possessed by the Hivemind for the same amount of time. They have Telepathy with a 100 ft. range with other members of the Hivemind. They may also send a 10 word message as a Swift Action to any member of the Hivemind outside that range (but still within 50 miles). There are Hivemind Feats that can provide further benefits.

    Disguise (Su): Cam-Bee-On's gain a +8 Competence Bonus on Disguise Checks to appear as a normal member of it's former race. In addition, spells that would reveal it's Alignment or whether or not it is telling the truth require an opposed Level Check (both sides roll 1d20 +1/2 HD plus Cha Modifier). If the opponent fails the Check, the Cam-Bee-On appears to be it's former Alignment, and to be truthful.

    Wanna-Bees Created by everyone's favorite Debihuman.

    Wannabee is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Fey, Giant, Humanoid, and Monstrous Humanoid that has an intelligence less than 10. Wannabes are unusual in that they desperately want to be bees and live a quiet, orderly life in a hive. Which they assume will be stress free. Do not suppose the Powers that Bee are not willing to take advantage of this.

    Size and Type: Unchanged.

    Hit Dice: Unchanged.

    Speed: If they do not have a flight speed, wannabees gain a set of undersized translucent wings and can fly at double their land speed (minimum 10 feet) with a maneuverability of Clumsy.

    Armor Class: Base Creatures Natural Armor Bonus increases by +1.

    Attacks: See Special attacks

    Damage: Unchanged.

    Special Attacks: Retains all Special Attacks of the Base Creature, plus gains the following:

    If I Bee Waspish (with apologies to William Shakespeare) (Ex): Wannabees gain a secondary stinger attack that deals 1d4 points of damage plus ½ Strength modifier (minimum 1). Once the stinger has been used, it takes 1 week to grow back. A stingerless wannabee takes a -2 morale penalty to attack rolls until its stinger grows back. The 1d4 damage is for Medium Wanna-Bees, it's 1d6 for large, 1d3 for Small, etc.

    Best Beeware My Sting (with further apologies to William Shakespeare) (Su): Despite their diminished mental capacity, wannabees can deliver barbs so sharp, they can cut an opponent to the quick. By merely humming, a wannabee can cause all opponents within 30 feet that can hear it to take a -4 penalty to all rolls. A successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + ½ the wannabee’s HD + wannabee’s charisma modifier) reduces the penalty to -2.

    Special Qualities: Retains all Special Qualities of the Base Creature, plus gains the following:

    Honey Dependent (Ex): Each wannabee is mystically bound to a single pot of honey and must never stray more than 300 yards from it. Any who do become ill and die within 4d6 hours. A wannabee’s pot of honey does not radiate magic. A pot of honey has 3 hit points and hardness 2. A broken honey pot is easily repaired with a mending spell or with sovereign glue.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: Unchanged.

    Skills: Wannabees gain Profession (beekeeper) as a class skill.

    Bee-ts are unholy combinations of bees and the fungi that preys on them, possibly a newly evolved species. It's almost like the fungus that normally prey on bees decided "hey these bugs are on to something" and decided to merge with them in some sort of unholy symbiosis.

    Poison (Su): Injury, DC 13 Fort Save (Save DC is Con based with a +2 Racial Bonus), Initial damage is 1d6 Con, Secondary damage Slows victim as per the spell for 2d4 rounds (Secondary damage for non-magical bees is death). Range is 20 ft.

    Combat: Bee-ts are pretty much like any other bee when it comes to fighting. Alas they no longer have stingers so they blast opponents with poisonous spores.

    Flightless aquatic bees with beaver tails? Sure why not. God knows it's not like D&D hasn't had weirder.

    Stunning Slap (Ex): Opponents hit by the Beevur's Slap Attack must make a DC 12 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Con Based) or be Stunned for 1 round.

    Communication: The Bee-Blooded can leave any message up to 10 words. This is a race specific language, so only other Bees or Bee-like creatures can understand.

    Boo-Bees from the WombatOfDoom

    Boo-Bees is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Bee or Bee-like Creature. Boo-Bees are ghostly bees. Bees who are really pissed off about their new, somewhat bosomy nicknames, Do not taunt happy fun bees.

    Size and Type: Size us unchanged. Type becomes Undead with the Incorporeal Subtype.

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become D12's.

    Speed: If you don't have Flight you gain a Fly speed equal to your base land speed (Perfect Maneuverability). If you have a Fly speed, maneuverability becomes Perfect.

    Armor Class: Natural armor is the same as the base creature’s but applies only to ethereal encounters. When the ghost manifests (see below), its natural armor bonus is +0, but it gains a deflection bonus equal to its Charisma modifier or +1, whichever is higher.

    Attacks: A ghost retains all the attacks of the base creature, although those relying on physical contact do not affect creatures that are not ethereal.

    Damage: Against ethereal creatures, a ghost uses the base creature’s damage values. Against nonethereal creatures, the ghost usually cannot deal physical damage at all but can use its special attacks, if any, when it manifests (see below).

    Special Attacks: A ghost retains all the special attacks of the base creature, although those relying on physical contact do not affect nonethereal creatures. The ghost also gains a manifestation ability plus one other special attacks per 3 Hit Dice as described below. The save DC against a special attack is equal to 10 + ½ ghost’s HD + ghost’s Cha modifier unless otherwise noted.

    Manifestation (Su): Every ghost has this ability. A ghost dwells on the Ethereal Plane and, as an ethereal creature, it cannot affect or be affected by anything in the material world. When a ghost manifests, it partly enters the Material Plane and becomes visible but incorporeal on the Material Plane. A manifested ghost can be harmed only by other incorporeal creatures, magic weapons, or spells, with a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source. A manifested ghost can pass through solid objects at will, and its own attacks pass through armor. A manifested ghost always moves silently. A manifested ghost can strike with its touch attack or with a ghost touch weapon (see Ghostly Equipment, below). A manifested ghost remains partially on the Ethereal Plane, where is it not incorporeal. A manifested ghost can be attacked by opponents on either the Material Plane or the Ethereal Plane. The ghost’s incorporeality helps protect it from foes on the Material Plane, but not from foes on the Ethereal Plane.

    When a spellcasting ghost is not manifested and is on the Ethereal Plane, its spells cannot affect targets on the Material Plane, but they work normally against ethereal targets. When a spellcasting ghost manifests, its spells continue to affect ethereal targets and can affect targets on the Material Plane normally unless the spells rely on touch. A manifested ghost’s touch spells don’t work on nonethereal targets.

    A ghost has two home planes, the Material Plane and the Ethereal Plane. It is not considered extraplanar when on either of these planes.

    Corrupting Gaze (Su): A ghost can blast living beings with a glance, at a range of up to 30 feet. Creatures that meet the ghost’s gaze must succeed on a Fortitude save or take 2d10 points of damage and 1d4 points of Charisma damage.

    Corrupting Sting (Su): The Boo-Bee can "sting" corporeal creatures, using it's Charisma Modifier in place of Str for attack and damage rolls. The Sting does 1d6 negative energy damage for a medium sized Boo-Bee, and if this attack kills anything that the Boo-Bee template can be applied to, that victim rises as a Boo-Bee within 1d4 days.

    Psychic Venom (Su): Every 1d4 rounds the Boo-Bee can make a psychic attack on an opponent within 60 feet. It uses it's Charisma Modifier as a bonus to the attack roll. If it hits, the opponent takes 1d6 points of Ability Drain to any Ability Score of the Boo-Bees choice. If this attack is successful, the Boo-Bee heals 5 points of damage to itself.

    Loathsome Buzz (Su): The Boo Bee constantly emits a horrible drone. This is a Mind-Affecting effect that requires it's target to be able to hear it. Any living creature who comes within 30 ft. of the Boo-Bee takes a -2 penalty on attack rolls, saves, ability checks, and skill checks (the Penalty increases to -6 for Concentration Checks). The Boo-Bee automatically fails all Move Silently Checks.

    Horrific Appearance (Su): Any living creature within 60 feet that views a ghost must succeed on a Fortitude save or immediately take 1d4 points of Strength damage, 1d4 points of Dexterity damage, and 1d4 points of Constitution damage. A creature that successfully saves against this effect cannot be affected by the same ghost’s horrific appearance for 24 hours.

    Soldier Bee (Ex): When defending your Hive, you gain a +4 Bonus to attack and damage rolls and a +4 Dodge Bonus to AC. Your Hive can be defined as a group of Boo-Bees, your grave, and actual hive, any member of a Hivemind if you possess one, etc.

    Special Qualities: Retains all Special Qualities of the Base Creature, plus gains the following:

    Rejuvenation (Su): In most cases, it’s difficult to destroy a ghost through simple combat: The "destroyed" spirit will often restore itself in 2d4 days. Even the most powerful spells are usually only temporary solutions. A ghost that would otherwise be destroyed returns to its old haunts with a successful level check (1d20 + ghost’s HD) against DC 16. As a rule, the only way to get rid of a ghost for sure is to determine the reason for its existence and set right whatever prevents it from resting in peace. The exact means varies with each spirit and may require a good deal of research.

    +4 Turn Resistance (Ex)

    Undead Hive Mind: If the base creature had the Hive Mind or Advance Hive Mind abilities when alive, it retains them in death. it may only Hive Mind with it's creator, the creators other victims, and it's own victims. Living bees are no longer joined with them.

    Abilities: Same as the base creature, except that the ghost has no Constitution score, and its Charisma score increases by +4.

He often impersonates higher ranking Fiends, so long as one capable of seeing through his disguise isn't available.

    Poison (Ex): Injury, Fortitude DC 27, initial damage 1d6 Con, secondary damage death. The save DC is Constitution-based. Buzzuzu has the option of applying one of the following Templates if the victim is of the appropriate type: Bee-Blooded, Bee-Damned, Bee-Shadowed, Cam-Bee-On, or Zombee.

    Disease (Ex): A creature struck by Buzzuzu’s bite attack must succeed on a DC 27 Fortitude save or be infected with a vile disease known as devil chills (incubation period 1d4 days, damage 1d4 Str). The save DC is Constitution-based. It also takes an additional +2d6 acid damage.

    Fear Aura (Su): Buzzuzu can radiate a 30-foot-radius fear aura as a free action. A creature in the area must succeed on a DC 33 Will save or be affected as though by a Fear spell (caster level 20th). A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the Buzzuzu’s aura for 24 hours. Cam-Bee-On's are immune to the aura.

    Improved Grab (Ex): Buzzuzu can 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 Sting.

    Sting (Su): If Buzzuzu makes a successful Grapple Check he stings his opponent for 4d6+7 damage plus poison.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At Will: Blasphemy, (6th Level), (3rd Level), Dominate Monster, Greater Dispel Magic, Greater Teleport (self plus 50 pounds of objects only), Invisibility, Magic Circle Against Good, Persistent Image, Screen, Unholy Aura. 3/Day: Summon Bee VIII. 1/Day: Gate. 1/Year: Wish.

    Hivemind (Ex): All Cam-Bee-On's within 50 miles of Buzzuzu are in constant communication. If one is aware of a particular danger, they all are. If one in a group is not flat-footed, none of them are. No Cam-Bee-On in a group is considered flanked unless all of them are (this applies to Buzzuzu as well).

    Advanced Hivemind (Su): Advanced Hive Minds can share knowledge. When using the Aid Another option you grant a +4 Bonus instead of the usual +2. Any member of the Hivemind can use a Feat or Skill possessed by any other member of the Hivemind as a Standard Action that provokes an Attack of Opportunity. Once the member goes through this short meditation, he may use the Skill Ranks of any member of the Hivemind (but uses his own ability modifier) for 1 Minute, or gains access to any 1 Feat possessed by the Hivemind for the same amount of time. They have Telepathy with a 100 ft. range with other members of the Hivemind. They may also send a 10 word message as a Swift Action to any member of the Hivemind outside that range (but still within 50 miles). There are Hivemind Feats that can provide further benefits.

    Disguise (Su): Buzzuzu can appear to be any Evil Outsider of Large Size whose CR is equal to or less than is. He gains a +8 Competence Bonus on Disguise Checks to appear as another fiend. In addition, spells that would reveal his Alignment or whether or not he is telling the truth require an opposed Level Check (both sides roll 1d20 +1/2 HD plus Cha Modifier). If the opponent fails the Check, Buzzuzu appears to be an Alignment of his choice, and to be truthful.

    Combat: Buzzuzu prefers to avoid open combat. He generally uses Disguise or Invisibility to feel things out before opening with Blasphemy (or fleeing via Greater Teleport). Once he has used Blasphemy he tends to keep distance between himself and others via flight while summoning help. Appropriate individuals will be Grappled and stung so he can control them via applying some sort of template to them.

    Last biopsy turned out okat. To celebrate, assuming my health doesnt dip again, and I dont have to do the usual end of the month scramble for rent, I will attempt a new monster daily till Halloween.


    Beast Folk

    "The creatures I had seen were not men, had never been men."

    Beast Folk is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Animal, Magical Beast, or Vermin. The Beast Folk are animalistic Humanoids, with features that tend to remind people of whatever creature they were derived from. How they come into existence is not known, and most seem to have no knowledge of their life from before their transformation.

    Size and Type: Type changes to Humanoid and all Subtypes are lost. Size becomes Medium.

    Hit Dice: Unchanged.

    Speed: Base Land Speed changes to 30 ft. If the Base Creature has a Climb or Swim speed it becomes 15 ft. Flight or Burrow moves are lost.

    Armor Class: The Base Creature retains any Natural AC bonuses to AC, but the Bonus maxes out at +5. Bonuses higher than that are reduced to +5.

    Attacks: Natural attacks based on a non-humanoid form, or reduced in number according to the new body. For example, a Crocodile would retain it's Bite, but lose it's Tail Slap. A Giant Octopus would retain it's Tentacle Attack, but would only get two Tentacle Attacks with a Full Attack Action.

    Damage: Damage should be adjusted if the Base Creature changes Size Category (see Size Increases in the Monster Manual).

    Special Attacks: Retains up to 1 Exceptional Special Attack of the Base Creature. Supernatural and Spell-Like Abilities of the Base Creature are lost, as are Exceptional ones based on a non-humanoid form. If an attack is based on Size (for example Improved Grab, Swallow Whole or Trample) that attack is scaled down due to Size change (or maybe up if it increases). For example if an Elephant kept Trample it could now Trample Small or smaller creatures, doing 1d8 plus it's one and a half times it's new Str Modifier.

    Special Qualities: Retains up to 3 Exceptional Qualities of the Base Creature. Supernatural or Spell-Like Abilities are lost. If the Base Creature had the Aquatic Subtype it gains the following:

    Hold Breath (Ex): A Beast Folk can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 8 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning.

    Saves: Choose Fortitude or Reflex as your Good Save. Saves are recalculated..

    Abilities: The Base Creatures Ability Scores are replaced by either the usual method (rolling or point buy, whichever is preferred) and adding the following racial ability modifiers: +2 to either Str or Dex, +2 Con, -2 Int, -2 Cha. Remember to recalculate anything based off ability modifier as they will all change.

    Skills: Racial Skill Bonuses are retained. If the Base Creature was Vermin it now gains (2 + Int Modifier) skill points per Level. Class Skills are the skills listed in the Base Creatures entry, plus Survival.

    Feats: Unchanged, remember to add Feats if Base Creature was Vermin.

    Environment: Unchanged.

    Organization: Usually Solitary

    Challenge Rating: +0 if it loses no Special Attacks or Qualities or keeps most of it's Natural Attacks. -1 if it loses Su or Sp Abilities. -2 if it loses a great deal of them.

    Treasure: Unchanged.

    Alignment: Initially Neutral, but varies over time.

    Advancement: By Character Class. Favored Class is either Barbarian or Scout.

    Level Adjustment: +1

    Glad to hear you're doing okay Bhu! And I love all of the bee monsters and the beast folk template. If I were to have a beast folk elephant for a character, would he be able to trample small or smaller characters for 2d4 damage? Because that sounds awesome and I kind of want to do it.

    Edit: By the way, do you have any objection to people posting NPC's that use your creatures as their race, or as a good example of the use of a template? I have a few ideas because of this beast folk one.

    1. That's cool.

    2. Awesome and awesome

    3. I had another question about the ability scores of the beast folk and the rolling 3d6:

    Do you do this for each individual creature, and is their ability score due to a racial bonus?

    Say I have 2 beast folk elephants, one of them rolls a 16 for strength (18 due to a +2), the other one rolls a 5 (7 due to a +2), does the one beast folk elephant have a +8 racial bonus to strength while the other has a -4 racial penalty? Or do I say that there's a group of beast folk elephants, and roll 3d6, getting a 14(16 due to a +2), and all of them in the group have a +6 racial bonus to strength due to being the same race.

    Likewise, what happens if I make a character with one of these things? My group uses 5d6 drop the two lowest for character generation, so do I use 3d6+[whatever template modifier]-[10 or 11] to determine his racial bonuses? And how does this interact with using the ability score arrays for NPCs?

    Amiq Rasol (Al-Qadim)

    Ka

    Ka is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Humanoid of noble birth who has already had the Mummy Template applied (or to a 9 HD Mummy). It must also be at least 9 Hit Dice. Not as evil as the usual Mummy, Ka's only attack desecrators of their tombs. They are otherwise generally well-disposed towards members of their same species and culture.

    Size and Type: Unchanged.

    Hit Dice: Unchanged.

    Speed: Loses the speed penalty from the Mummy Template.

    Armor Class: Natural Armor Bonus to AC increases by an additional +2.

    Attacks: Unchanged.

    Damage: Unchanged.

    Special Attacks: Retains all Special Attacks except Mummy Rot, and gains the following:

    Curse (Su): Instead of Mummy's Rot, any creature successfully attacked by the Ka's Slam attack must make a Willpower Save (Save DC is Charisma based) or be cursed as per the Bestow Curse spell. Curses are not cumulative, and individuals cursed via this ability cannot be cursed by it again until the first curse is removed.

    Animate Statuary (Su): Placed outside the walls of the Ka's resting place are 1d4 statues. As a Standard Action, the Ka can leave it's undead body helpless to animate the statue. While animating a statue it cannot use it's other attacks or abilities, and the statue has the stats of an average Stone Golem (see MM). If the Ka's body is destroyed while it is animating a statue, it's spirit lives on within the statue. The Ka now becomes a Stone Golem, but keeps it's Feats, mental ability scores, and skills.

    Written Commands (Su): The Ka can use Command at wil as a Supernatural Ability, but is limited in that it must write the Command down. Unlike other Supernatural Abilties, this means it has a Somatic and Material component.

    Special Qualities: Retains all Special Qualities except Fire Vulnerability, and gains the following:

    Damage Reduction (Ex): Also gains DR 15/Magic in addition to DR 5/-.

    Immunities (Ex): Is immune to Cold and Electricity damage and Polymorph effects.

    Turn Resistance (Ex): Gains Turn Resistance +4

    Fire Resistance 10

    Spirit Doors (Su): Carved into the walls of the Ka's tomb are 'spirit doors'. Effectively the Ka may pass through them as they were an open door, but it remains a wall space to everything else. A typical tomb has 1 spirit door per point of Cha Modifier of the Ka.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: +2 Dex, +8 Int, +2 Wis, +2 Cha.

    Skills: Unchanged.

    Feats: Unchanged.

    Environment: Any, but generally doesn't leave it's tomb.

    In his current incarnation the Brown Man of the river is a humanoid giant covered in mud, moss, and river slime. His face is skull-like, and he has snakes for hair. His teeth and nails are long and sharp, and he wields a tree trunk as a club. Originally the terror of the Picts, he was eventually slain by one of their heroes. Generations later he was revived to murder King Conan. The Brown Man is something of an anomaly, not quite a God or alien, and too tied to the elements of nature to be a demon. He has a limited sense of honor, as he was willing to murder Conan as thanks for being resurrected by his ancient enemies, the Picts. However when Conan managed to catch the Brown Man in a death trap, he was willing to turn on the Picts in exchange for being set free, even though attacking them was quite obviously suicidal.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If the Brown Man succeeds in making a Claw Attack against an opponent that us Huge or smaller, the Brown man can initiate a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. He also does not provoke an Attack of Opportunity when making a Grapple Check normally.

    Throw Victim (Ex): The Brown Man can fling foes away from him with a successful grapple check. Flinging the enemy requires a standard action. For every 5 points by which hia grapple check beats hia foe's grapple check or Escape Artist check, he can throw that foe 10 feet. His foe lands prone in the square he designates, and takes 1d6 damage per 10 feet traveled. He must be strong enough to lift an enemy over his head (the enemy's weight cannot exceed hia maximum load) to throw him.

    Rock Throwing (Ex) The range increment for the Brown Man's thrown rocks is 140 ft.

    Uproot (Ex): If necessary the Brown Man can uproot a tree as a Full Round Action. It must make a Str Check whose DC depends on the size of the tree: 20 for Medium, 25 for Large, 30 for Huge. He may wield these trees as clubs, with damage varying based on size: Medium is 2d6 plus Str (one handed), Large is 3d6 plus Str (one handed), Huge is 4d6 plus one and a half times Str (two handed). He may also throw these trees, with the same range as his thrown rocks.

    Frightful Presence (Ex): When the Brown Man attacks, any living creature with less Hit Dice than himself must make a DC 27 Willpower Save (Save DC is Charisma Based), or be Shaken for 1d6 rounds.

    Sweep (Ex): As a Full Round Action the Brown Man can swing his club in a sweeping arc, hitting every opponent in squares he threatens. This does normal weapon damage, and can be used with his Awesome Blow Feat.

    Trample (Ex): Reflex half DC 36. The save DC is Strength-based.

    The River is Life (Su): While standing in the river that is his home, the Brown Man is virtually unkillable. He effectively has DR 10/-, and Regeneration 10. So long as he is in the river mere hit point damage cannot destroy him, and if reduced to negative hit points he is merely restricted to only a single Move or attack action each round. He also doesn't seem effected by blood loss, and does not lose additional hit points or take Constitution damage from bleeding type effects. He is also immune to poison, sleep effects, stunning, disease, death effects, critical hits, non lethal damage and temporary ability damage while within the river. He does still need food, and can starve to death (this is the one exception to his apparent invulnerability), and can only feed upon those who die in the river. He must kill at least one Medium creature per month to survive, and will leave to fetch one if it is not present in the river when needed.

    This has it's downside. When he leaves the river, he loses all these abilities (except the obvious one about eating only life that has perished there), and he takes 1 point of temporary Str damage per round. Presumably he may not also be Resurrected on dry land as well. His ability damage returns at the rate of 1 point per round when he returns to the river, and he regains all other abilities as well. Despite this he rarely seems reluctant to leave the river to pursue foes.

    Rites of Resurrection (Su): The Picts know rituals capable of returning the Brown Man to life, no matter how he has been destroyed, though presumably his remains must be brought to the river if they are not already there. Those reviving him should know this does not place him under their control, though they can ask of him one boon and he will grant it if he is able. After that they die like anyone else.

    Combat: The Brown Man needs to feed on life that has died in the river, so he will confront foes within it, or drag them into it if possible. His virtual indestructibility while within the river leads him to be somewhat overconfident against smaller foes who have no supernatural abilities, but he is no slouch outside it either. He will sweep multiple foes, or fling them away. Single foes will be crushed, drowned, or bludgeoned to death.

    I love what you've done with the bee templates.

    Bee-Dazzler's glare vision doesn't seem inspired. It could be a ray attack that dazzles its victims with shimmering silver light. If you mean they can see perfectly fine in cloud, fog, and mist that would be okay too.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    King-Wight

    King-Wight is an Acquired Template that can be added to any creature with the Wight Template of at least 12 Hit Dice that was nobility in it's former life. King Wights usually voluntarily undergo their transformation through some arcane necromantic ritual to continue ruling their lands, even after death. It changes it's former retinue into Wights under it's command, and raids far and wide for treasure. Most King-Wights are equipped with at least +3 Chain Mail and a +2 Weapon.

    Size and Type: Unchanged.

    Hit Dice: Unchanged (but see below).

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: Unchanged.

    Energy Drain (Su): Unlike the more common Wight, a King-Wight bestows 2 Negative Levels with a successful Slam or melee touch attack.

    Frightful Presence (Su): A King-Wight can unsettle foes with its mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever the King-Wight attacks. Living creatures within a radius of 30 feet are subject to the effect if they have fewer HD than the King-Wight. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 10 + ½ King-Wight’s HD + King-Wight’s Cha modifier) remains immune to that King-Wight’s frightful presence for 24 hours. On a failure, creatures with 4 or less HD become panicked for 1d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 1d6 rounds.

    Hardy (Su): The King-Wight gains it's Charisma Modifier times it's Hit Dice in Hit Points.

    Velya

    Velya is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Humanoid or Monstrous Humanoid. The Velya are aquatic vampires, haunting the swamps and oceans of the world. They appear as attractive but feral members of their former species attired in tattered rags, assuming they bother with clothing at all. Originally land dwellers they became vampires due to a long forgotten curse.

    Size and Type: The creature’s type changes to undead (augmented humanoid or monstrous humanoid). Do not recalculate base attack bonus, saves, or skill points. Size is unchanged. It also gains the Aquatic Subtype.

    Hit Dice: Increase all current and future Hit Dice to d12s.

    Speed: Gains a Swim speed equal to it's base land speed.

    Armor Class: The base creature’s natural armor bonus improves by +7.

    Attacks: A vampire retains all the attacks of the base creature and also gains a melee touch attack doing 1d8 negative energy damage.. If the base creature can use weapons, the vampire retains this ability. A creature with natural weapons retains those natural weapons. A vampire fighting without weapons uses either its touch attack or its primary natural weapon (if it has any). A vampire armed with a weapon uses its touch or a weapon, as it desires.

    Damage: Unchanged.

    Special Attacks: A vampire retains all the special attacks of the base creature and gains those described below:

    Children of the Sea (Su): Vampires command the lesser creatures of the world and once per day can call forth a pack of 3d6 Large Sharks as a standard action. (If the base creature is not terrestrial, this power might summon other creatures of similar power.) These creatures arrive in 2d6 rounds and serve the vampire for up to 1 hour. Swamp Velyas summon Crocodiles instead of Sharks.

    Blood Drain (Ex): A vampire can suck blood from a living victim with its fangs by making a successful grapple check. If it pins the foe, it drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution drain each round the pin is maintained. On each such successful attack, the vampire gains 5 temporary hit points.

    Charming Song (Su): Velyas can sing in their humanoid forms, and be heard for miles. Living creatures within 60 ft must make a Willpower Save or be affected as if by Charm Monster. They must be able to hear the Velya for this ability to work.

    Create Spawn (Su): A humanoid or monstrous humanoid slain by a vampire’s energy drain rises as an aquatic Wight 1d4 days after death. This is identical to the normal Wight save that it has the Aquatic Subtype, and a Swim Speed equa to it's Land Speed.

    The Wight is under the command of the vampire that created it and remains enslaved until its master’s destruction. At any given time a vampire may have enslaved spawn totaling no more than twice its own Hit Dice; any spawn it creates that would exceed this limit are created as free-willed Wights. A Wight that is enslaved may create and enslave spawn of its own, so a master vampire can control a number of lesser Wights in this fashion. A vampire may voluntarily free an enslaved spawn in order to enslave a new spawn, but once freed, a Wight. A new Velya Vampire can only be created through the original curse that made them in the first place, or by a transfusion of the Velya's blood. As the new Velya is not under the control of their creator they do not often pursue this.

    Energy Drain (Su): Living creatures hit by a vampire’s touch attack (or any other natural weapon the vampire might possess) gain two negative levels. For each negative level bestowed, the vampire gains 5 temporary hit points. A vampire can use its energy drain ability once per round.

    Special Qualities: A vampire retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains those described below:

    Alternate Form (Su): A Velya can assume the shape of a Manta Ray or Medium to Large Shark as a standard action. While in its alternate form, the vampire loses its natural slam attack and dominate ability, but it gains the natural weapons and extraordinary special attacks of its new form. It can remain in that form until it assumes another or until the next sunrise. (If the base creature is not terrestrial, this power might allow other forms.) Swamp Velyas instead assume the form of an Albino Crocodile or Giant Crocodile or and albino Eel or Dire Eel.

    Damage Reduction (Su): The Velya gains DR 15/Magic.

    Fast Healing (Ex): A vampire heals 3 points of damage each round so long as it has at least 1 hit point. If reduced to 0 hit points in combat, it automatically assumes liquid form and attempts to escape. It must reach its crypt home within 2 hours or be utterly destroyed. (It can travel up to nine miles in 2 hours.) Any additional damage dealt to a vampire forced into liquid form has no effect. Once at rest in its cript, a vampire is helpless. It regains 1 hit point after 1 hour, then is no longer helpless and resumes healing at the rate of 3 hit points per round.

    Liquid Form (Su): As a standard action, a vampire can assume Gaseous Form at will as the spell (caster level 5th), but it can remain gaseous indefinitely and retains it's Swim speed instead of being able to fly. Instead of a gaseous form it is now composed of water, and effectively Invisible as per the spell so long as it remains in the water.

    Resistances (Ex): A vampire has resistance to cold 10 and electricity 10.

    Turn Resistance (Ex): A vampire has +4 turn resistance.

    Weaknesses (Ex): Like regular vampires the Velya are repelled by holy symbols, but they do not share their weaknesses against garlic, running water, or entering a home without invitation. If it's crypt has a Holy Symbol placed in it or become Hallowed ground it can never return there, but it can find any completely lightless underwater cave or wreck as a suitable substitute. Reducing a vampire’s hit points to 0 or lower incapacitates it but doesn’t always destroy it (see the note on fast healing). However, certain attacks can slay vampires. Completely removing the Velya's entire body from the water and exposing it to air robs it of one-third of its hit points each round until it is destroyed at the end of the third round of exposure. However if it even has so much as a toe in the water it is still okay. Driving a wooden stake through a vampire’s heart instantly slays the monster. However, it returns to life if the stake is removed, unless the body is destroyed. The Disintegrate spell can also destroy a Velya, as can denying it entry to it's crypt. If it does not spend the day in it's Crypt the Velya loses 2d8 hit points, which is unaffected by it's Fast Healing. Once it has been in it's crypt a full day it's Fast Healing can fix this damage.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Str +6, Dex +4, Int +2, Wis +2, Cha +4. As an undead creature, a vampire has no Constitution score.

    Skills: Vampires have a +8 racial bonus on Bluff, Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Search, Sense Motive, Spot, and Swim checks. They can always take 10 on a Swim Check. Otherwise same as the base creature.

    Feats: Vampires gain Alertness, Combat Reflexes, Dodge, Improved Initiative, and Lightning Reflexes, assuming the base creature meets the prerequisites and doesn’t already have these feats.

    Environment: Any Swamp or Aquatic.

    Organization: Solitary plus 2d4 aquatic Wights.

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: Double Standard.

    Alignment: Usually Chaotic Evil.

    Advancement: By character class.

    Googam is the infant son of Goom, a would be conqueror of Earth who abandoned his son when his schemes failed and he was taken back to his planet. Googam, roughly the size of a man, quickly grew to a 40 foot giant with the intellect of a child. Tricked into a pit of quicksand it was assumed that he had died, but he re-emerged to attack again.

    Psi-Like Abilities (Ps): At will: Compression (others only, up to 5 targets at close range), Concussion Blast, Inertial Armor (can be used simultaneously at Close Range on up to 5 others). 3/day: Inertial Barrier, Telekinetic Force, Telekinetic Maneuver, Telekinetic Thrust

    Trample (Ex): Reflex Save DC 32 for half damage.

    Hold Breath (Ex): Googam can hold his breath for a number of rounds equal to 4 × its Constitution score before he risks drowning.

    Combat: Googam is a petulant child with a bit of a streak of megalomania due to being raised by a maniac. Eventually he'll calm down and learn if taught by more powerful beings than himself. Generally speaking he is no tactician, and will loudly announce his presence demanding submission from others. If that fails he'll have a hissy fit and shrink them before stomping the lot.

    Advancement: Should Goom eventually reach full maturity, his size will increase to Colossal, and he will become capable of limited flight. His mental powers will increase exponentially, ending with him being able to telekinetically lift entire cities and being nearly invulnerable due to his force field.

Similar to Lycanthropes, the Loup de Noir can change form into wolves, but only with the aid of s specially prepared wolf pelt. They pass on their curse to succeeding generations, with their human children becoming Loup de Noir, and their wolf children becoming Wolfweres.

    Size and Type: Size and Type are unchanged, gains the Shapechanger Subtype.

    Damage: Unchanged.

    Special Attacks: Retains all Special Attacks of the base creature.

    Special Qualities: Retains all Special Attacks of the base creature:

    Cursed Wolf Pelt (Su): In return for becoming a cursed evil monster who has likely sold their soul to a dark power, the Loupde Noir receives a magical wolf pelt. By donning the pelt as a Move Action the Loup de Noir can assume the form of a Dire Wolf. This is similar to Alternate Form with a few exceptions: The Loup de Noir reatins it's base land speed, Natural Armor Bonus to AC, and physical ability scores. If this wolf skin is stolen, the Loup de Noir cannot change form to a Dire Wolf.

    Curse of Lycanthropy (Su): Any humanoid or giant hit by a Loup de Noir’s bite attack in wolf form must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract lycanthropy, becoming a Werewolf. This werewolf is not necessarily loyal or even friendly to the Loup de Noir.

    Regeneration (Ex): Gains Regeneration 5 (Regeneration doesn't work on SIlver or damage from sources considered Good for purposes of overcoming Damage Reduction).

    Low-Light Vision (Ex): The Loup de Noir gains Low-Light Vision in it's Humanoid Form as well.

    Scent (Ex): The Loup de Noir gains Scent in it's Humanoid Form as well.

    Addiction (Ex): The Loup de Noir quickly becomes addicted to changing into wolf form and going on murder sprees. Initially this is a DC 10 Will Save, with a cumulative +1 to the DC for every day the Loup de Noir doesn't change. Once the Loup de Noir fails a Save and goes berserk killing everything in it's path, the Save resets to DC 10 the next day.

    Abilities: +14 Str, +4 Dex, +6 Con, +4 Wis.

    Stat block for Brown Man needs a bit of work. Note Will saves are not Willpower; they are just Will. Darkvision is one word. Even a Huge club is one-handed weapon and the stat block should indicate that he's swinging a Huge club that does 4d6+32 damage as it is being used with both hands.
    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    The Crones of Chaos are vile hags devoted to pain and suffering. They never bath and are encrusted with filth, with their hair standing on end or at odd angles. Generally they always appear to be a young maiden via disguise self to lure in victims. Crones speak Common, and the language of any 2 nearby races. Once they mate with a humanoid victim, they kill and eat him. Male children are likewise devoured, and girl children are abandoned to their fathers race. She begins the change to a Crone in late adolescence.

    Daggers of Sorcery (Su): At will the Crone can summon six ghostly white daggers that attack independently of her as a Standard Action. The daggers have a 240 foot range, and have all the stats of a normal dagger. If a dagger is successfully Sundered, the Crone summons one less dagger when using this ability until 24 hours have passed. Opponents damaged by the dagger must make a DC 15 Willpower Save or be Sickened for the rest of the encounter. Opponents who Save successfully are immune to the Sickening effect of this Crone's daggers for 24 hours. Each dagger automatically attacks a different target, and switching one or all of their targets is a Swift Action.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will: Disguise Self, Dominate Animal. The range for Dominate Animal is increased to Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level).

    Combat: Crones will usually Dominate Animals into fighting for her, backing them up with her daggers.

    Haunt

    Haunt is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any aberration, animal, dragon, giant, humanoid, magical beast, monstrous humanoid, or plant. The creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature) must have a Charisma score of at least 6. Haunts died leaving some vital task unfinished, and they seek to possess the living in order to finish that task and move on. Once the Haunt has accomplished it's task, it will leave the body of it's possessed victim and move on to the afterlife.

    Size and Type: Size is unchanged, Type becomes Undead with the Incorporeal Subtype.

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become d12s.

    Speed: Haunts have a fly speed of 30 feet, unless the base creature has a higher fly speed, with perfect maneuverability.

    Armor Class: Natural armor is the same as the base creature’s but applies only to ethereal encounters. When the Haunt manifests (see below), its natural armor bonus is +0, but it gains a deflection bonus equal to its Charisma modifier or +1, whichever is higher.

    Attacks: A Haunt retains all the attacks of the base creature, although those relying on physical contact do not affect creatures that are not ethereal.

    Damage: A Haunt retains all the attacks of the base creature, although those relying on physical contact do not affect creatures that are not ethereal.

    Special Attacks: Mention whether or not the base creature retains any of it’s special attacks or gains any new ones here.

    Draining Touch (Su): A Haunt that hits a living target with its incorporeal touch attack drains 1d4 points from Dexterity. On each such successful attack, the Hauntt heals 5 points of damage to itself. Against ethereal opponents, it adds its Strength modifier to attack rolls only. Against nonethereal opponents, it adds its Dexterity modifier to attack rolls only.

    Malevolence (Su): Once per round, an ethereal ghost can merge its body with a creature on the Material Plane. This ability is similar to a magic jar spell (caster level 10th or the ghost’s Hit Dice, whichever is higher), except that it does not require a receptacle. To use this ability, the ghost must be manifested and it must try move into the target’s space; moving into the target’s space to use the malevolence ability does not provoke attacks of opportunity. The target can resist the attack with a successful Will save (DC 15 + ghost’s Cha modifier). A creature that successfully saves is immune to that same ghost’s malevolence for 24 hours, and the ghost cannot enter the target’s space. If the save fails, the ghost vanishes into the target’s body. Unlike other ghosts, the Haunts victim does not get a Save to avoid possession if his Dex has been drained to 0. Once the Haunt possesses the body, all Dexterity Drain is immediately healed and teh body is mobile again.

    Manifestation (Su): Every ghost has this ability. A ghost dwells on the Ethereal Plane and, as an ethereal creature, it cannot affect or be affected by anything in the material world. When a ghost manifests, it partly enters the Material Plane and becomes visible but incorporeal on the Material Plane. A manifested ghost can be harmed only by other incorporeal creatures, magic weapons, or spells, with a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source. A manifested ghost can pass through solid objects at will, and its own attacks pass through armor. A manifested ghost always moves silently. A manifested ghost can strike with its touch attack or with a ghost touch weapon (see Ghostly Equipment, below). A manifested ghost remains partially on the Ethereal Plane, where is it not incorporeal. A manifested ghost can be attacked by opponents on either the Material Plane or the Ethereal Plane. The ghost’s incorporeality helps protect it from foes on the Material Plane, but not from foes on the Ethereal Plane.

    Special Qualities: Mention whether or not the base creature retains any of it’s special qualities or gains any new ones here.

    Rejuvenation (Su): In most cases, it’s difficult to destroy a ghost through simple combat: The "destroyed" spirit will often restore itself in 2d4 days. Even the most powerful spells are usually only temporary solutions. A ghost that would otherwise be destroyed returns to its old haunts with a successful level check (1d20 + ghost’s HD) against DC 16. As a rule, the only way to get rid of a Haunt for sure is to help it complete it's task.

    Turn Immunity (Ex): Haunts cannot be Turned.

    Domain Attachment (Ex): Haunts cannot move further than 180 ft. from the spot of their death, unless they have possessed a living being via Malevolence.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: +4 Cha, as a Mindless, Incorporeal Undead the Haunt as no Str, Int or Con score.

    Skills: Haunts lose all skills, but have a +8 racial bonus on Hide, Listen, Move Silently. Search, and Spot checks.

    Feats: Haunts lose all Feats.

    Environment: Any

    Organization: Solitary

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: None.

    Alignment: Any.

    Advancement: Up to double the amount of Hit Dice it had when this Template was applied to the base creature. i.e. if applied t a 3rd Level Fighter, the it can advance to 6 Hit Dice.

    The Silat are a race of pale blue or green hags with rams horns. They have slightly darker hair, stand well over 10 feet tall, and their horns spiral more with age. They roam the lands of Zakhara, often polymorphed so as not to draw attention. The ymate with the Ogre Magi to continue their species (their daughters are Silats, their sons are Ogre Magi). Politeness and respect are especially important to the Silat, and even the most Evil among them will refrain from attacking someone who bows to them and treats them as friends. They may even provide aid to those who give them food and shelter or perform tasks for them.


    Polymorph (Sp): Young Silat can Polymorph on themselves only 3/day as a Spell-Like Ability. They must leave one part of their body unchanged (usually their feet), which they take great pains to hide. Once they reach adulthood at 100+ years old they can Polymorph themselves at will with no limitations. Additionally she can cast Baleful Polymorph 3/day as a Spell-Like Ability. If the Silat survives to 600+ years old, she becomes a Matriarch and can also cast Baleful Polymorph at will. Additionally she can cast Polymorph Any Object 3/day as a Spell-Like Ability.

    Regeneration (Ex): The Silats regeneration does not work against damage doe by fire or cold iron.

    Immunities (Ex): The Silat are immune to Poison and Mind-Affecting Effects.

    Combat: Younger Silats will simply tear opponents to bits with their strength, while the adults more often go for Polymorph shenanigans. Matriarchs are pretty much encountered only if they want to be.

    Bhuts are an odd race. During the day they appear as normal humans, but when night comes they undergo a hideous transformation. They grow claws, fangs and scales, and their hair lengthens and grows wild. They speak Common and their own language, and often live near human settlements as traveling nomads in order to feed upon them. They can interbreed with humans, but the children are always Bhut. Rumor posits that they are the descendants of a town whose evil inhabitants were cursed by a God.
    Numbing Bite (Ex): Opponents bitten by the Bhut begin to feel a freezing cold spread through them that numbs their body. Opponents who are bitten must make a DC 17 Fortitude Save or be Sickened for 1d4 rounds. Cumulative bites merely expand the duration, Save DC is Constitution based.

    Immunities (Ex): Despite not being Undead, teh Bhut share many immunities with them. They are immune to Mind-Affecting Effects, Poison, Sleep Effects, Paralysis, Disease, critical hits, nonlethal damage, energy drain, ability damage/drain, and fatigue/exhaustion effects.

    Daytime Normalcy (Su): Bhut look like normal humans during the day. During this time they lose their Numbing Bite and natural attacks. They automatically transform into their monstrous form the moment the sun sets, until it raises again.

    Deceptive Aura (Su): Attempts via spells or other powers to determine the Bhuts Alignment falsely register it as Lawful Good (or fail in the case of spells like Detect Evil).

    Hardy (Ex): Bhut have a +4 Racial Bonus to Fortitude Saves.

    Skills: Bhut have a +6 Racial Bonus to Hide and Move Silently Checks, and they may always Take 10 on a Move Silently Check.

    Combat: Bhuts will avoid combat in the daylight to avoid giving themselves away. At night they try to bite their foes to numb them as quickly as possible.
