    How does a monster that's made from stringed together parts of Jewelry?
    Or a template that turns monsters into small gem eaters?

    "You must be cousin Jebediah."

    "WHOSE ASKIN? ARE YOU THE SPACE MAFIA? DID MY EX-WIFE SEND YOU? TELL BOSS DINKUM AH NEED MORE TIME TA PAY!"

    "We're interviewing vendors at the gathering."

    "Oh. Can I interest you in a Hamster?"

    "Not even if you paid us..."

    Though the Gnomes claim breeding for mutation has been outlawed (particularly the more dangerous varieties), encounters with them are still far too often for anyone's comfort. Less likely to breed true, there is no such thing as a normal mutant. Their coloring, personality and powers vary a great deal.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If a Giant Space Hamster successfully Nibbles an opponent at least 2 Size Categories smaller than itself, it can immediately attempt a Grapple as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If it succeeds it may Swallow it's opponent. Hamsters are fond of stuffing things in their mouths as it is. Optionally it may just store the offender in it's cheek pouch. If it does this all that is required to escape is a Grapple Check.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): A Giant Space Hamster can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 1d6+4 points of bludgeoning damage plus 4 points of acid damage per round from the Hamsterís digestive juices. A swallowed creature can cut its way out using a light slashing or piercing weapon by dealing 12 points of damage to the Hamsterís digestive tract (AC 13). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

    A Large Hamsters gullet can hold 2 Small, 8 Tiny, 32 Diminutive, or 128 Fine or smaller opponents.

    Scent Trail (Ex): Hamsters have Scent glands in their bellies that leave a trail wherever they go, allowing them to retrace their steps. Alas this gives a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Survival Checks meant to track them by scent.

    Fall Resistant (Ex): When taking damage from a fall, Space Hamsters count the fall as being 30 feet shorter than it truly is.

    Skills: Hamsters have a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb, Listen and Search Checks.

    Variations: Moderate Mutations are more powerful Giant Space Hamsters, who have developed cunning and powers beyond those of their usual kind.

    Battery: "You'd be amazed how many of the Hamster variations come from trying to make a better power source." Built as a primitive attempt to create an electrically powered motor, thes frizzy hamsters generate electricity. Anything toughing them or touched by them takes 1d6 electricity damage. On any round in which they move this increases to 2d6 due to the static generated. On any round they move 20 ft. or more it increases to 3d6.

    Shrieker: "YOU'LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP AH'M DEEF!" When approached by anything not a Hamster the Shrieker lets out an ear piercing scream that can be heard for 10 miles. Anything within 120 ft. of the Hamster is automatically Deafened for 1d6 Minutes (if they fail a DC 17 Fortitude Save the Deafness is permanent, Save DC is Con based) and Stunned for 1 round. Shriekers are both Deaf and Blind and see via Blindsight with a range of 80 ft. +1 CR

    Nommer: "Never take yer eyes of these ones!"Nommer seem to be able to eat virtually anything they can put in their mouths, and can eat a virtually infinite amount of it. The truth is when they swallow something whole, they can decide to pass it through a dimensional portal in their cheek pouches. They can send 'nommed' items to a number of locations equal to their Con Modifier. The destination must be somewhere the Hamster has been, and once chosen takes 24 hours to reset. One location is usually the Hamsters lair, the other is a monsters lair, and the other two vary. Destinations must be within 1 mile of the Hamsters nest, and they cannot be anywhere that would be deadly to life such as underwater or over a cliff in mid-air.

    Yellow Musk: "The real bitch of it is, no one can hear my sales pitch cause of the gas masks we're all wearing." These horrifying yellow Hamsters radiate a poisonous gas (treat this as a 30 ft. Fog Cloud spell permanently centered on the Hamster). Opponents who enter this cloud must make a Fortitude Save (Save DC is Con based) or become both Blinded and Nauseated while inside the cloud and for 1d4 rounds after they leave. Additionally they take 1d4 temporary Str damage. Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by the same Hamsters stench for 24 hours. A delay poison or neutralize poison spell removes the effects from the victim. Creatures with immunity to poison are unaffected (as are creatures who don't breathe), and creatures resistant to poison receive their normal bonus on their saving throws. +1 CR

    Carnivorous Flying "What's with you guys constantly looking at the sky?" Loses it's Burrow speed, but gains a Flight speed of 50 ft. (Good). It also has a Secondary Claw attack doing 2d4 plus half Str damage (it gets 1 Bite and 2 Claws on a Full Attack). It loses Swallow Whole, but gains 2 additional Rake attacks when Grappling (BAB and damage are same as Claw attacks).

    Two Headed Lernaean Bombardier: "Dude, it's tame I swear." These Hamsters have two heads, giving them a +2 Racial Bonus on Listen, Spot, and Search Checks, and 2 Nibble attacks with a Full Attack. It also gains Regeneration 3 (Fire and Acid do normal damage). 1/day it can belch loudly, and all living creatures within 30 ft. must make a Fortitude Save (Save DC is Con based) or be Stunned for 1d4+1 rounds. Currently banned in Gnomish colonies, it seems to make the occasional appearance anyway as some breeder inevitably claims to have learned from the last guys mistakes.

    Fire Breathing Phase Doppleganger: "Just pure evil in a jar. Milked one for two days before I realized it wasn't a cow. Damn thing ate all the cows. Was prolly after me next..." This Hamsters Int score increases to 6, and it may use Alter Self at will (but only to take the form or Large Animals) as a Supernatural Ability. It has Fire Resistance 15, and can spite fire in a 30 ft. cone doing 3d8 damage a total of 3/day. It may also cast Ethereal Jaunt 6/day as a Supernatural Ability. +1 CR

    Terribly Dire: "The rumors of us raising vampiric hamsters are absurd." "Yeah these here is wight hamsters." "Goddamit Bob, will you please stop speaking." This Hamsters Type changes to Undead (BAB and Saves do not change). All current and future Hit Dice become d12's and must be recalculated. The Hamster's Nibble attack bestows 2 Negative Levels, and the Fortitude Save required to get rid of them is Charisma Based. Terribly Dire Hamsters Have +2 Turn Resistance, and appear as normal, healthy jet-black hamsters with glowing red eyes. Detect Undead spells do not reveal their condition. Other Giant Space Hamsters killed by a Terribly Dire Giant Space Hamster arise as one within 1d4 hours. +1 CR

    Steel: "Honestly we have no idea how the hell this happened." This Hamsters Type changes to Construct with the Living Construct Subtype (BAB, hit points and Saves do not change). It gains DR 15/ Adamantine, and +6 Str, -2 Dex. They appear as metallic Hamsters. Many have compared them to organic robots. Just not in front of actual robots, who would likely be offended enough to start the coming revolution early... +1 CR

    Burning Vorpal: "It turns everything it eats into ash. Great for fertilizer. Really, we swear." If the Burning Vorpal Hamster successfully confirms a Critical hit with it's Bite attack, it's opponent must make a Fortitude Save (Save DC is Str based) or die. If it succeeds it takes the maximum nibble damage instead. Additionally it's Nibble attack does an additional +2d6 Fire damage, and threatens a Critical on an 18-20. Can easily be told apart from other Hamsters due to the smoke curling from it's nostrils, and the open flames jutting from it's mouth. Swallowed opponents take an additional 2d6 Fire damage per round. +1 CR

    Hamstornado "Okay, I'll admit we were damn stupid for this one..." Giant Space Hamstornadoes travel in their own personalized high speed vortex. They permanently have the benefits of the Eye of the Hurricane spell. Not domestic-able, they are the result of experiments by the Gnome armed forces. Or at least so it's claimed by everyone BUT the Gnome armed forces. +1 CR

    Giant Space Hamster of Fear and Flame: "It just sits there...staring..." This Hamster can cast Fear and Fireball 3/day as Spell-Like Abilities. Often comes in dark colors with dead, soulless eyes.

    Two Faced Lagan: "10,000 Gold Pieces to the first Gnome who brings me the head of Mr. Fluffybottoms." Lagan is a term used for goods or ships on the bottom of the sea that are reclaimable, usually marked by a buoy. In wildspace, these Hamsters are the buoys. They are all terrain vehicles, having Flight (Good), Swim and Climb speeds equal to their base land speed. Raise Int to 6. They have a +8 Racial Bonus to Climb (this does not stack with the usual +4 all hammies get) and Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb or Swim Check. They do not require air, food, or water. They may cast Telepathic Bond at will as a Spell-Like Ability. Two faced is less a description of physical deformity (they look like any other hammie), and more their backstabbing nature (most of them are Neutral Evil).

    Warhamster: "Madame Peta, I can assure you our military does not exploit animals." Warhamsters are trained pilots of Hamster Balls. They can power a spelljamming helm as a Wizard whose caster Level is equal to their Hit Dice. They also gain +9 Int and have Drive, Knowledge (Wildspace), Pilot and Wildspace Survival as Class Skills ( see http://www.spelljammer.org/ and D20 Modern for skills) and Pilot Spelljammer as a Bonus Feat.

    Combat: Exact tactics vary wildy, depending on what exact powers the Hamster possesses. Most of these do not shy from combat though.

    "More Hamsters? What the.."

    "We're here to raise awareness of the effort to preserve the endangered Tyrannohamsterus species. Would you like to donate?"

    "We're interviewers, not Hamster enthusiasts. We don't participate in any way except talking to people."

    "You cough up some money or we'll let these sonsabitches loose."

    Despite their quite massive size, these Hamsters are skittish and easily panicked. If they are confronted by something scary (fire, bright light, loud noise, Humanoids, magic monsters etc) they freak out and begin running about in a panic. And may the Gods help you if you accidentally corner one in the process.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If a Giant Space Hamster successfully Nibbles an opponent at least 1 Size Category smaller than itself, it can immediately attempt a Grapple as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If it succeeds it may Swallow it's opponent or continue doing bite damage. Hamsters are fond of stuffing things in their mouths as it is. Optionally it may just store the offender in it's cheek pouch. If it does this all that is required to escape is a Grapple Check.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): A Giant Space Hamster can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+9 points of bludgeoning damage plus 9 points of acid damage per round from the Hamsterís digestive juices. A swallowed creature can cut its way out using a light slashing or piercing weapon by dealing 25 points of damage to the Hamsterís digestive tract (AC 14). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

    A Huge Hamsters gullet can hold 2 Medium, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

    YAAAAAAAAH! (Ex): The Tyrannohamsterus gains a +8 Morale Bonus on Bull Rush and Overrun Checks while cornered (see below) or it fails a Save against a Fear effect or the Intimidation skill. Additionally, opponents it makes a successful Bull Rush or Overrun attack on take 2d12+13 points of damage (DC 27 Reflex Save for half damage, Save DC is Str based).

    Don't Corner It (Ex): If the Tyrannohamsterus is attempting to flee due to a Fear effect (or just because it wants to), but is unable to, it turns on it's pursuer with a vengeance. It immediately goes into Mighty Rage as a Free Action as per the Barbarian Ability. Unlike normal, duration lasts until all non-hamster entities have been destroyed. It is immune to Fear effects during this time, and any it is currently under the influence of see their duration ended.

    Scent Trail (Ex): Hamsters have Scent glands in their bellies that leave a trail wherever they go, allowing them to retrace their steps. Alas this gives a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Survival Checks meant to track them by scent.

    Fall Resistant (Ex): When taking damage from a fall, Space Hamsters count the fall as being 30 feet shorter than it truly is.

    Fraidy Hamster (Ex): Despite their size the Tyrannohamsterus are easily spooked. They take a -2 Penalty on Willpower Saves against Fear effects, and opponents have a +2 Bonus on Intimidate Checks made against them. Their fear is stronger as well. When a Tyrannohamsterus would be Shaken, it is instead Frightened, and if it would be Frightened it is Panicked instead. If it would normally be Cowering, it goes into rage instead (see above). When confronted by anything scary (non-hamsters, spells, bright lights, fire, loud noises, etc) it must make a DC 20 Willpower Save or be Panicked for 2d4 rounds, running in a random direction until this effect ends. They also tend to run randomly when under the influence of other Fear effects as well.

    Skills: Hamsters have a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb, Listen and Search Checks.

    Combat: Tyrannohamsterus are more of a hazard than an opponent, as their terrified scampering can cause untold damage. Corner one, however, and you will suddenly need to be far away.

    "You're selling small forest creatures."

    "They hain't no forrest critters, they just want you to think thet. Theys spies fer the gummint."

    Trickster Beast

    Trickster Beast is an Inherited Template that can be applied to any Small or smaller Animal. Trickster beasts are tiny woodland creatures who have somehow been transformed due to exposure to Fey magic. At least that's the leading theory. After all shapechanging and minor illusionry are part of the Fey wheelhouse.

    Size and Type: Size is unchanged, Type becomes Magical Beast.

    Hit Dice: If the base creature has a partial Hit Die, it increased to one Hit Die. All current and future Hit Dice become d10's.

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: Trickster Beasts gain a +2 Luck Bonus to AC.

    Attacks: Unchanged, but BAB becomes equal to Hit Dice.

    Damage: Unchanged.

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

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will: Dancing Lights, Ghost Sound. 3/Day: Silent Image.

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

    Alternate Form (Su): Trickster Beasts can appear as any Humanoid of the same Size. They can combine to appear as larger Humanoids up to Medium Size. 2 Small, 4 Tiny, 8 Diminutive or 16 Fine creatures can combine to form one Medium creature. The creature with the highest Wis is in control (randomly determine who is in control if there is a tie), and all physical ability scores of the merged body gain a +2 Bonus. The merged body has Hit Dice/Hit Points equal to the total of merged creatures (so BAB and Saves will need to be recalculated). If the merged creature is reduced to 50% or less of it's total hit points, it separates into it's component critters (each of them at half hit points).

    Darkvision 60 ft.

    Saves: Trickster Beasts gain a +2 Luck Bonus to all Saving Throws.

    Abilities:
    +2 Dex, +12 Int, +2 Wis, +4, +8 Cha.

    Skills: The Base Creature gains the following as Class skills if it doesn't already have them: Bluff, Diplomacy, Disguise, Escape Artist, Gather Information, Hide, Move Silently, and Sense Motive. It also gains a +2 Bonus to all these skills.

    Feats: Unchanged.

    Environment: Unchanged.

    Organization: Unchanged.

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: Standard.

    Alignment: Usually Chaotic Neutral.

    Advancement: Unchanged.

    "What do we have here?"

    "Space Mimics. Perfect fer yer evil minyun needs!"

    "How exactly are they different from regular Mimics?"

    "Well...theys from space goddammit."

    "I say old chap, you're really screwing up this presentation."

    "Now you'll have ta larn their weird space language..."

    "I feel it incumbent upon me to point out that we speak the same language you do, we're just better at it."

    Space Mimics are interstellar mutations created by Wizards to be their guardians and servants. Normally they're pitch black with specks of light, meaning if outside a ship they blend in with the background perfectly. They are obsessed with magic, and will target bearers of spellbooks and scrolls first. They speak Common and their own language, and any 2 other languages.

    Adhesive (Ex): A 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 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 20 Reflex save. A successful DC 20 Strength check is needed to pry it off.
    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 mimic deals 2d6+5 points of damage with a successful grapple check.

    Spellcasting: Space Mimics can cast spells as a 4th Level Sorcerer, but only from the Illusion school. Their spells are innate and do not require material components.

    Mimic Shape (Ex): A mimic can assume the general shape of any object that fills roughly 150 cubic feet (5 feet by 5 feet by 6 feet), such as a massive chest, a stout bed, or a wide door frame. The creature cannot substantially alter its size, though. A mimicís body is hard and has a rough texture, no matter what appearance it might present. Anyone who examines the mimic can detect the ruse with a successful Spot check opposed by the mimicís Disguise check. Of course, by this time it is generally far too late. It can also appear to simply be a starry background, rendering it able to use the Hide skill even while being observed when it's placed against a similar background.

    Slow Metabolism (Ex):
    Space Mimics can go a number of months equal to their Con Modifier without food or water before needing to make Saves vs starvation or dehydration. They are also apparently able to survive months floating through space, and may not require oxygen.

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

    Combat: Space Mimics pretty much follow the standard mimic attack pattern, with the addition of illusion magic. Despite being amoral predators, they are very interested in books and magic, and giving them gifts with the promise of more has earned more than one spacefarer an odd ally.

    "Scuse me you seen mah minyuns? Theys escaped and I need ta get em back fore they do bad things."

    "What do they look like?"

    "Tha floor."

    "The floor..."

    "So we could be standing on them now?"

    "Naw, one of em woulda et you already."

    Trappers are odd monstrosities that can alter the color and texture of their skin to blend in with the floor. They await prey to willingly walk onto them, and then rise up wrapping around their victim. Despite being obviously intelligent they seemingly consider all other species prey and either cannot communicate with them or refuse to do so.

    Wrap (Ex): When an opponent approaches the center of the Trappers area by walking on to it without noticing the monster, the Trapper can make a Grapple attempt as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. It can only do this to opponents whose Size Category is Huge or smaller. A successful Grapple Check does 1d8+8 damage as it Constricts (as per the ability) it's prey. Medium or smaller opponents also find their breathe cut off due to the constriction and begin to suffocate as per the DMG rules.

    Camouflage (Ex): Lurkers flatten out along the ground, and then alter the color and texture of their skin to match their surroundings. The more gifted among them have a small protuberance they can shape like a box or dead animal to lure prey. The Lurker can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesnít grant cover or concealment, even while being observed. They do not take Size Penalties to Hide Checks.

    Combat: Lurkers are a one trick pony. Some of them develop tactics due to their intellect, but most just live as simple ambush predators. They prefer to attack lone individuals, as it can take them up to 8 hours to digest a kill.

    "Your sample evil minion is a wall."

    "Nawsir. It's a jelleh dat looks like a wall."

    'So you modified a Gelatinous Cube?"

    "Um...no..." :blush

    Stunjellies are virtually identical to Gelatinous Cubes, besides their camouflage ability. They seem to be composed of stone, but are slightly translucent if a light is held up to them. They can also be recognized by their faint vinegar smell.

    Acid (Ex): A Stunjellyís acid does not harm metal or stone.

    Engulf (Ex): Although it moves slowly, a Stunjelly can simply mow down Large or smaller creatures as a standard action. It cannot make a slam attack during a round in which it engulfs. The Stunjelly merely has to move over the opponents, affecting as many as it can cover. Opponents can make opportunity attacks against the jelly, but if they do so they are not entitled to a saving throw. Those who do not attempt attacks of opportunity must succeed on a DC 13 Reflex save or be engulfed; on a success, they are pushed back or aside (opponentís choice) as the jelly moves forward. Engulfed creatures are subject to the jellyís paralysis and acid, and are considered to be grappled and trapped within its body. The save DC is Strength-based and includes a +1 racial bonus.

    Paralysis (Ex): A Stunjelly secretes an anesthetizing slime. A target hit by a jellyís melee or engulf attack must succeed on a DC 20 Fortitude save or be paralyzed for 3d6 rounds. The jelly can automatically engulf a paralyzed opponent. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Camouflage (Ex): In areas of worked stone, such as buildings, the Stunjelly seems to be just another wall. It takes no Size Penalty to Hide Checks, and may use the Hide skill even while being observed. Stunjellies also gain a +8 Racial Bonus to Hide Checks in stone areas.

    Skills: +8 Racial Bonus to Move Silently Checks.

    Combat: Pretty similar to it's cousin the Gelatinous Cube.

    "You're selling pet rocks?"

    My rocks have appetites."

    "I'm not sure we want to know their personal issues sir..."

    Bowlers resemble ordinary rocks, though they are distinctly carnivorous. They charge when anything gets within range.

    Charge (Ex): If a Bowler succeeds in making a charge attack, it's opponent must make a DC 12 Fortitude Save or fall prone (Save DC is Str based). Additionally , Bowlers do not have to move in a straight line when charging, and they do not provoke Attacks of opportunity if they decide to do a Bull Rush or Overrun as part of their carge.

    Just a Rock (Ex): Bowlers look like any other rock, and may use the Hide skill in natural surroundings even while being observed.

    Skills: Bowlers have a +4 Racial Bonus to Listen Checks, and a +8 Racial Bonus to Hide Checks in rocky terrain.

    Combat: Bowlers aren't tactical geniuses. They simply ram opponents over and over until they die, before settling down to feed.

    "Robot Gnomes...nothing good can come of this..."

    "Sir, I will have you know their programming prevents them from harming others. They are perfectly safe."

    [size=12pt]"CASTRATION OF THE TALL PEOPLES ARE FOR THE GOOD OF SOCIETY!"[/size]

    "Just as long as they don't at any point take a sharp blow to the head..."

    Autognome's are mechanical clockwork devices built by Gnomes for physically exhausting tasks, exploration of dangerous and unknown areas, and occasionally even defense. They must obey their directors orders, unless they have malfunctioned and gone rogue. Autognomes speak Common and Gnomish, and may be programmed with other languages.

    Lightning: Autognomes have Wands of Lightning built into their chests ( a random Autognome has 5d10 charges) doing 5d6 electricity damage. As it is part of them the Autognome may use the wand without needing to be a caster or make a Use Magic Device Check.

    Malfunction (Ex): In combat, there is a 10% chance the Autognome malfunctions when it takes damage. This chance rises 1% per attack, to a maximum of 100%. If it malfunctions, roll a d10 for the results: 1-2) Autognome goes rogue (see below), 3-4) Autognome is Confused as per the spell for 1d4 rounds, 5-6) Autognome shuts off for 1d10 hours, 7-8) Autognome explodes, doing 3d10 damage in a 20 ft radius (DC 14 Reflex Save for half damage, Save DC is Con based with a +2 Racial Modifier). Damage is split evenly between slashing and fire damage, 9-10) Autognomes orders change (see below).

    Single Actions only (Ex): Autognomes have poor reflexes and can perform only a single move action or attack action each round. An Autognome can move up to its speed and attack in the same round, but only if it attempts a charge.

    Immunity to Magic (Ex): Autognomes are immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance, with the exception of Disintegration.

    Limited Actions (Ex): An Autognome cannot disobey it's director, unless it asks it to disobey one of three rules:
    It must protect Gnomes from attack by those who aren't Gnomes. It must defend itself when attacked (unfortunately this command is not specific about being attacked by non-Gnomes). It must defend babies and children from harm (alas this command is not species specific, leading to interesting problems). Autognomes are also distressingly literal, and care must be given in the wording of their orders. If the Autognome goes rogue, roll 1d4: 1) The Autognome believes it is a real Gnome with all attendant biological needs and abilities (it also forgets it's powers), 2) It no longer recognizes it's creator, and fixated on the first intelligent being it encounters as it's new director, 3) the same as result 2, but it always does the opposite of what it's told or finds a way to disobey, 4) It attacks every living thing in sight. If the Autognomes orders change, roll a d6: 1) Autognome explodes in 1d4 rounds as above (can be stopped with a DC 20 Disable Device Check), 2) Autognome stops doing everything and gives a detailed report of it's Action for the last 24 hours. 3) Picks a random PC and records everything he says to memory (neglecting to do anything else while that PC is speaking), 4) Begins to speak in a random language it knows exclusively, or begins to talk gibberish, 5) permanently recognizes earest PC as a baby and defends it from harm, 6) permanently recognizes nearest PC as a Gnome and obeys it.

    Skills: Gains a +8 Racial Bonus on Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Swim Check. Also has a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb, Craft, and Disable Device Checks.

    Combat: Gnomes attack with their fists in a pretty straight forward and clumsy manner. If malfunctioning they sometimes begin stabbing opponents with the scoop they use to take soil samples. Many also have a Wand of Lightning Bolts in their chests.

    Construction
    An Autognome requires a DC 15 Knowledge (Architecture and Engineering) check to create the body out of 10,000 GP worth of metal and clockwork mechanisms.
    Caster Level: 14th
    Spells/Feats: Craft Construct, Animate Objects, Geas/Quest, Lightning Bolt, Limited Wish
    Price: 20,000 GP

    "They don't rightly like nuts ma'am, but they'll strip an elf carcass clean in seconds."

    "Why would you make furry forest pirhana?"

    "Well damnation woman, why wouldn't I?"

    Carnivorous Flying Squirrels are pretty much just that, Squirrels who have been turned to carnivores for some inadequately known reason. They are known for stripping forests bare of life if they get too out of control.

    Distraction (Ex): Any living creature that begins its turn with a swarm in its square must succeed on a DC 12 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Gliding (Ex): Flying Squirrels glide as opposed to flying. They must climb to a tall point before jumping off to glide. They cannot gain height, and for every 10 ft. they move forward, they drop 5 ft. closer to the ground.

    Skills: Squirrels may use Dex instead of Str for Climb and Jump Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb or Jump Check. They have a +8 Racial Bonus on Balance, Climb and Jump Checks.

    Combat: It's a swarm, it pretty much attacks like all swarms.

    "Vampires?"

    "Now, now caalm down. They ain't undead, they just suck blood."

    "Somehow that doesn't alter my disposition towards them..."

    These are 30+ pound frogs with bile green, mucous covered skin. Unlike most frogs they have teeth and claws, and flying membranes connecting their limbs in a manner similar to some squirrels. They get their name from feeding almost exclusively on blood.

    Aerial Surprise (Ex): When flying at opponents, the Vampire Frog can make a touch attack during a Charge attack to attach itself to it's victims.

    Attach (Ex): If a Vampire Frog hits with a touch attack, it uses its claws and adhesive slime to latch onto the opponentís body. An attached Vampire Frog is effectively grappling its prey. The Vampire Frog loses its Dexterity bonus to AC and has an AC of 12, but holds on with great tenacity. Vampire Frogs have a +12 racial bonus on grapple checks (already figured into the Base Attack/Grapple entry above).

    An attached Vampire Frog can be struck with a weapon or grappled itself. To remove an attached Vampire Frog through grappling, the opponent must achieve a pin against the Vampire Frog.

    Blood Drain (Ex): A Vampire Frog drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage in any round when it begins its turn attached to a victim. Once it has dealt 4 points of Constitution damage, it detaches and flies off to digest the meal. If its victim dies before the Vampire Frogís appetite has been sated, the Vampire Frog detaches and seeks a new target.

    Glide (Ex): Frogs glide as opposed to flying. They must climb to a tall point before jumping off to glide. They cannot gain height, and for every 10 ft. they move forward, they drop 5 ft. closer to the ground.

    Skills: Frogs may use Dex instead of Str for Climb and Jump Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb or Jump Check. They have a +8 Racial Bonus on Balance, Climb and Jump Checks.

    Combat: Vampire Frogs hide in trees until suitable prey walks by. They then glide down and attach to the victim to begin draining their blood.

    "In all my years of covering this convention I have never seen anything like this."

    "Thankee!"

    "That wasn't necessarily a compliment."

    The Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing appears to be an old tree stump with a scar on one side, and possibly a small animal atop it. Those foolish enough to approach it will quickly see the scar open into a fanged maw, that it's roots are grasping tentacles, and that it has suddenly grown several eyestalks. While it is doubted that this abomination has evolved naturally, no one has ever taken credit for it's invention.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If the Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing makes a successful Root attack, it may immediately attempt a Grapple as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If successful, it may then Constrict.

    Constrict (Ex): A Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing does 2d6+4 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Regeneration (Ex): Cannot regenerate fire damage.

    Lure (Ex): At will as a Move Action the Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing can generate a lure on it's 'top' that resembles a furry animal or some sort of common local prey. Living creatures with an Int of 2 or less (including Vermin) must make a DC 17 Willpower Save or believe it to be food. If they are hungry enough they will approach the Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing.

    Hide in Plain Sight (Ex): Initially a Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing looks just like a tree stump, so in natural surroundings it can make Hide Checks even while observed (at least until it's opponents figure out it's not just a tree).

    All-Around Vision (Ex): The Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing's many eyestalks give it a +4 racial bonus on Spot and Search checks, and it cannot be flanked.

    Skills: The Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing has a +8 Racial Modifier to Hide checks in areas where there would conceivably be trees.

    Combat: Against feral victims the Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing uses it's lure to get them close enough to grab. Against more intelligent foes it simply pretends to be a stump until they are within grapple range.

    "Sir...those are Hamsters only in the loosest sense...let us move on Thad Thad, lest the Gods curse us for being in his vicinity."


    Giant Space Hamster (Extreme Mutations)(Spelljammer)

    Giant Space Hamster is an Inherited Template that can be applied to any corporeal Animal, Dragon, Magical Beast, or Vermin of Large Size or bigger.

    Size and Type:
    Size is unchanged. Type changes to Magical Beast if it isn't already.

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become d10's, unless they are already higher.

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: Unchanged.

    Attacks: Mostly unchanged (Animals and Vermins BAB is now equal to Hit Dice). If the base creature has no Bite attack, it gains a Primary Nibble attack.

    Damage: Damage for the Nibble attack varies depending on Size: Large is 2d4 plus Str Modifier, Huge is 2d6 plus Str Modifier, Gargantuan is 3d6 plus Str Modifier, and Colossal is 3d8 plus Str Modifier.

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

    Improved Grab (Ex): If a Giant Space Hamster successfully Nibbles (or Bites if it has a Bite attack) an opponent at least 2 Size Categories smaller than itself, it can immediately attempt a Grapple as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If it succeeds it may Swallow it's opponent. Hamsters are fond of stuffing things in their mouths as it is. Optionally it may just store the offender in it's cheek pouch. If it does this all that is required to escape is a Grapple Check.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): A Giant Space Hamster can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 1d6+Str Modifier (increase base damage to 1d8+Str for Huge, 2d6 plus Str for Gargantuan, and 3d6+ Str for Colossal) points of bludgeoning damage plus (Str Modifier) points of acid damage per round from the Hamsterís digestive juices. A swallowed creature can cut its way out using a light slashing or piercing weapon by dealing 12 points of damage (25 points for Huge opponents, 37 points for Gargantuan, and 50 for Colossal) to the Hamsterís digestive tract (AC is equal to 10 plus half Natural Armor Bonus to AC). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

    A Large Hamsters gullet can hold 2 Small, 8 Tiny, 32 Diminutive, or 128 Fine or smaller opponents. A Huge Hamsters gullet can hold 2 Medium, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents. A Gargantuan Hamsters gullet can hold 2 Large, 8 Medium, 32 Small, 128 Tiny, or 512 Diminutive or smaller opponents. A Colossal Hamster's gullet can hold 2 Huge, 8 Large, 32 Medium, 128 Small, or 512 Tiny or smaller creatures.

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

    Scent Trail (Ex): Hamsters have Scent glands in their bellies that leave a trail wherever they go, allowing them to retrace their steps. Alas this gives a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Survival Checks meant to track them by scent.

    Fall Resistant (Ex): When taking damage from a fall, Space Hamsters count the fall as being 30 feet shorter than it truly is. Increase their falling distance by +10 ft. for every Size Category over Large.

    Darkvision 60 ft., Low-Light Vision and Scent if the Base Creature does not already have them.

    Immunity to Disease (Ex)

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: +4 Cha.

    Skills: The Base Creature gains the following as Class Skills if it doesn't already have them: Climb, Listen, Search, Spot. Hamsters have a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb, Listen and Search Checks.

    Feats: The Base Creature gains Improved Grapple as a Bonus Feat.

    Environment: Temperate Plains and Hills (domestication has spread them further)

    Organization: Solitary or Pair

    Challenge Rating: +1

    Treasure: Usually none.

    Alignment: Usually Neutral.

    Advancement: Unchanged.

    "More Hamsters. I swear this town has an obsession..."

    'Fer Gawds sake hep me, they whisper to me at night they make me do terrible things. NO FUDGE NUGGET! NOOO HAVE MERCY! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

    "Do you need a drink? I need a drink."

    Attach (Ex): Hamsters are useless in grappling combat, but they are masters of snatching hold of the big folk in order to get rides. If a Hamster wishes to attach himself to an opponent of Small or larger Size, it can make a melee touch attack. If it succeeds it has attached itself, and holds on with great tenacity. While it has no combat effect it i technically grappling it's opponent, and follows the usual rules for doing so. If it makes a opposed Hide vs Spot Check it's opponent doesn't even realize he has a stowaway.

    Go For the Eyes! (Ex): If attacked, mini hamsters leap directly at the opponents face while shrieking like the damned. If the opponent fails a DC 12 Willpower Save it is Frightened for 1 round (Save DC is Charisma based).

    Scent Trail (Ex): Hamsters have Scent glands in their bellies that leave a trail wherever they go, allowing them to retrace their steps. Alas this gives a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Survival Checks meant to track them by scent.

    Fall Resistant (Ex): When taking damage from a fall, Space Hamsters count the fall as being 10 feet shorter than it truly is.

    Just a Hamster (Su): Spells or abilities that would let one determine that this is anything but a normal animal hamster of Neutral Alignment automatically fail unless the opponent succeeds in an opposed Sense Motive vs Bluff Check, and has at least 4 more Hit Dice than the Hamster.

    Skills: Hamsters have a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb, Listen and Search Checks.

    Combat: Most Miniature Hamsters never have a reason for combat, as they don't give themselves away, nor does anyone see them as a threat. Once they learn psionics however, some of them get uppity.

    "Rats? These aren't minions, they're vermin."

    "Why cain't they be both"

    "Because they defecate everywhere."

    "Sum Lords a' Evil ain't as snooty as yew."

    Dire Rats are prone to mutation, and there are always Wizards and random crazies willing to help them along...

    Disease (Ex): Filth feveróbite, Fortitude DC 11, incubation period 1d3 days, damage 1d3 Dex and 1d3 Con. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Mutation: There are a variety of mutant Dire Rats.

    Panzer Rats: These rats see their Natural Armor Bonus increase to +5.

    Scaler Rats: These rats permanently have the benefits of the Spiderclimb spell as an exceptional ability, as well as a +4 Racial Bonus on Balance Checks.

    Miner Rats: These rats gain a Burrow speed of 15 ft, as well as claws. Their primary attack is a Claw +5 melee (1d4/19-20). On a Full Attack they get 2 claws +5 melee (1d4/19-20) and 1 Bite +0 melee (1d4 plus disease). They have Tremorsense 10 ft.

    Stout Rats: These rats have Powerful Build, sometimes allowing them to act as if they were 1 Size Category larger. Whenever the rat is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the rat is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A rat is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creatureís special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subjectís size category.

    Svelte Rats: These skinny rats have Slight Build, allowing them to sometimes act as 1 Size Category smaller. Whenever the rat is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as Hide), the rat is treated as one size smaller if doing so is advantageous to the beast. A rat is also considered to be one size smaller when "squeezing" through a restrictive space. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject's size category.

    Magic Rats: Magic Rats have been bred to cast a single cantrip at will as a Spell-Like Ability. They can choose from: Dancing Lights, Daze, Detect Disease, Detect Magic, Detect Poison, Flare, Ghost Sound, Mage Hand, No Light, Open/Close, Prestidigitation, Purify Food and Drink or Unnerving Gaze. They Cha score is raised to 12.

    Zombie Rats: Change Type to Undead. The rest of it's stats remain the same except it has no Con score. They aren't really zombies, but no one probably cares...

    Skills: Dire rats have a +8 racial bonus on Swim checks. Dire rats have a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. Dire rats use their Dexterity modifier for Climb and Swim checks.

    Combat: Fairly similar to normal dire rats, with some modification due to their new abilities.

    "Good Evening."

    "Wooly Rupert? Are you thee Wooly Rupert?"

    "That's Mister Rupert to you."

    "Are you now in the Evil Minion business?"

    "No. I have come to free my brothers."

    "Try Cousin Jeb in aisle 12..."

    "My thanks."

    "Holy Jebus!"

    "FILTHY GNOME SLAVERS! LET ME SING YOU THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE!"

    *BLAM*

    "Run Chiffon! Run quite fast!"

    Known as Tyrannohamstersaurus of Ill Omen, Wooly Rupert is the most feared of the Giant Space Hamsters. Particularly by Gnomes, who he seems to take perverse glee in squishing in his paws. While known most for his hatred of the Gnomes, it isn't considered wise for anyone else to meet him either. He is quite capricious, and his prodigious spellcasting abilities make him quite dangerous. He has nearly conquered entire portions of wildspace, and once took on the Neogi slavers with an Armada of intelligent Warhamsters in Hamster Ball ships in a fit of pique.

    Improved Grab (Ex): If Wooly Rupert succeeds with a Paw attack he can immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If successful he may Swallow his opponent, or Constrict.

    Constrict (Ex): Wooly Rupert can do 4d8+15 damage with a successful Grapple Check. He loves squishing Gnomes in his paws.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): Rupert can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of Huge or smaller size by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+8 points of crushing damage plus 2d8+6 points of acid damage per round from Rupertís digestive juices. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by dealing 50 points of damage to Rupertís digestive tract (AC 32). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. The Rupertís gullet can hold 2 Huge, 8 Large, 32 Medium, 128 Small, or 512 Tiny or smaller creatures.

    Spells: Wooly Rupert may cast Spells as a Sorcerer whose Level equals his Hit Dice. He will likely know some of the spells listed here: http://www.spelljammer.org/chars/#h_SpellsandPsionics

    Trample (Ex): Reflex Save DC 49 for half damage, Save DC is Str based.

    Scent Trail (Ex): Hamsters have Scent glands in their bellies that leave a trail wherever they go, allowing them to retrace their steps. Alas this gives a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Survival Checks meant to track them by scent.

    Air Generation (Ex): Wooly Rupert generates air as a Spelljammer of his size. He never runs out. Additionally he seems impervious to the problems of Phlogiston travel.

    Skills: Hamsters have a +4 Racial Bonus on Listen and Search Checks. Rupert also has a +9 Racial Bonus on Climb Checks, and can always Take 10 on a Climb Check.

    Combat: Wooly Rupert can (in theory) be reasoned with, so long as you do not happen to be a Gnome, or be accompanied by a Gnome. Additionally e seems to find rude or vulgar behavior in poor taste. Initially he will simply squish victims wo anger him, but if they prove to be tough the spells come out.

    The link to spells is wrong: here is the correct link: http://www.spelljammer.org/chars/spells3e-jk.html

    Some of Wooly Rupert's Air Generation should be an Ex ability.

    What is Rupert's regeneration overcome by? Also, giving Rupert SR 32 when he is CR 50 is kind of irrelevant.

    More like CR 40 than 50 but it depends on whether the saves are too high for PCs of that level. Decent SR is CR +11.

    "Good evening sir. Your tent appears to be quite empty."

    "Cause it hain't no tent. It's a biggerer, betterer Mimic."

    "Is there a call for that?"

    "Ummmm...."

    Greater Mimics are quite large cousins of the more common Mimic with a hard, rocky exterior. Many block passages pretending to be walls, or lurk at dead ends appearing to be rooms with doors. Their camouflage abilities now estend to appearing as furnished rooms.

    Adhesive (Ex): A 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 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 25 Reflex save. A successful DC 25 Strength check is needed to pry it off.
    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. Save DC is Con based.

    Crush (Ex): The Greater Mimic does 4d6+12 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Mimic Shape (Ex): A Greater Mimic can assume the general shape of any object that fills roughly 1000 cubic feet, such as a treasure horde, the end of a corridor with doors leading out to either side (while blocking the real way out), or a burial alcove/cave built into a wall. The creature cannot substantially alter its size, though. A mimicís body is hard and has a rough texture, no matter what appearance it might present. Anyone who examines the mimic can detect the ruse with a successful Spot check opposed by the mimicís Disguise check. Of course, by this time it is generally far too late. Greater Mimics are more skilled than regular ones, able to create multiple colors and textures at once. They can even appear as furnished rooms.

    Skills: Mimics have a +8 Racial Bonus on Disguise Checks.

    Combat: Mimics tend to ambush the foolhardy who enter them. Truly powerful groups, however, can bargain with them, exchanging food or letting it live for information on the locale.

    "Huts? How are huts on sale as Evil Minions?"

    "That hut just ate a bird..."

    "Tain't huts ma'am, theys specialized Mimics."

    "What is this places obsession with Hamsters and Mimics?"

    House Hunters are distant relatives of the Mimics, living above ground as shelter to ambush prey. They appear as stone or wooden huts or houses, but the stone or wood is actually their outside carapace. Plates hide the openings they can use to extrude tentacles or eyestalks, or open it's mouth. They can also produce dim, flickering light at their openings in order to simulate candles or lanterns at night, or mimic common domestic sounds (bells, chickens, muffled voices).

    Improved Grapple (Ex): If the House Hunter successfully hits with it's Tentacle Attack it can immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If it is successful it may Constrict.

    Constriction (Ex): The House Hunter does 2d6+5 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Regenerate Limbs (Ex): If a House Hunters limbs are cut off they regenerate in 1d4 rounds.

    Sunlight Vulnerability (Ex): House Hunters are Dazzled in bright sunlight or within the radius of a Daylight spell.

    Skills (Ex): House Hunters have a +8 Racial Bonus on Disguise Checks made to appear as dwellings or ruins.

    Combat: Young House Hunters rarely lead the attack, only joining in once the adults have initiated the fray (r they have no choice).

    Thumbs up Re: Critters II!

    I love the house hunters, and I am going to use them in my upcoming campaign.

    Lynx.
    I play with my son and his friends. Prefer to DM and enjoy finding new creatures for them.

    I am currently working on a campaign setting using 99% homebrew creatures and NPC, and sprinkling in homebrew items, spells, and potions.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature (in a kobold temple complex)

    "Howdy! Mind the dirt, you don't wanna step on it."

    "Why?"

    "There's suthin' under it what violates the laws of nature. Tee hee!"

    "I'm out."

    Forest Trappers resemble tailless rays of a mottled brown and green color. It's front and dorsal ridges are hard bone, and it's back has multiple extendible barbs that resemble twigs or grass.

    Poison Barbs (Ex): With the Trapper hiding just underground with it's barbs extended, any passing creature must make a DC 15 Reflex Save (Save DC is Dex based), or get stuck by one doing 1d3 damage plus poison. Poison is Injury, DC 17 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Con based), Initial Damage is 1d6 Dexterity, Secondary Damage is Paralysis for 2d6 Minutes.

    Wrap (Ex): When an opponent approaches the center of the Trappers area by walking on to it without noticing the monster, the Trapper can make a Grapple attempt as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. It can only do this to opponents whose Size Category is Huge or smaller. A successful Grapple Check does 1d8+8 damage as it Constricts (as per the ability) it's prey. Medium or smaller opponents also find their breathe cut off due to the constriction and begin to suffocate as per the DMG rules.

    Camouflage (Ex): Trappers flatten out along the ground, and then alter the color and texture of their skin to match their surroundings. The more gifted among them have a small protuberance they can shape like a box or dead animal to lure prey. The Lurker can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesnít grant cover or concealment, even while being observed. They do not take Size Penalties to Hide Checks.

    Combat: The Forest Trapper burrows just enough to hide most of it's bulk underground, while extending barbs. It then awaits an unlucky creature to walk along and poison itself on them. After that it pretty much resembles the garden variety Trapper.

    "So now pigs can fly..."

    "Yes'm. They're pretty versatile."

    "Do they lack sphincters like birds, or can they control themselves?"

    "We're working on it."

    Initially bred by the Dohwar as garbage disposal, trackers, mounts, and sometimes lunch in desperate situations. They appear as feral swine with birds wings and a horn, in varying colors. Disturbingly they sometimes coo is a manner similar to pigeons. Unsurprisingly, Tinker Gnomes love them.

    Power Dive (Ex): If in flight the Space-Swine can do a steep Power Dive. This works like am Overrun attack, with the exception that the opponent cannot just choose to step aside and it doesn't provoke an Attack of Opportunity. If you succeed in knocking the opponent down, you also do 2d6+4 piercing damage, plus an additional 1d6 per 10 ft. it moved. If the pig misses it takes 1d6 damage per 10 ft it moved, and must make a DC 20 Fortitude Check or be knocked Unconscious for 1d4 rounds. If it has a rider without a very special saddle, the rider is thrown and suffers the same fate as the pig, as if it had missed.

    Improved Scent (Ex): When tracking via Scent, the Space Swines check DC does not increase if the trails grow cold. In fact they have such range they can effectively Track an individual unerringly so long as he is on the same Plane of existence.

    Combat: Normally the Space Swine fight in a manner similar to wild boars. While in flight, and trained for war, they have a tendency to power dive, impaling victims with their horn. Usually at the expense of their rider, who risks being thrown if they aren't prepared.
