    "So what does this one do?"

    "WAR! WAR! WAR! WAR! WAR! WAR! WAR! WAR!"

    "Subtle."

    Warmongers are Genies tasked with warfare for so long it has warped them. They are shorter and fatter than most, and repulsively hairy. They sweat blood, and despite that they wear the gaudiest of armor or uniforms.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will: Fear, Remove Fear. 2/day: Cloak of Bravery, Magic Weapon, Suggestion.

    Aura (Su): The Warmonger Genie emits an aura of power. All Allies within 120 feet of the Genie receive a +2 Morale Bonus to all Willpower Saves while in this area. If the Genie is killed they take a -2 Morale Penalty to Willpower Saves for 1 Minute.

    Plane Shift (Sp): A genie can enter any of the elemental planes, the Astral Plane, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the genie and up to eight other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similar to the spell of the same name (caster level 13th).

    Combat:
    Warmongers prefer to fight mounted or at the rear where they can observe the battlefield. Despite being excellent tacticians they are poor long term strategists, getting lost in the thrill of bloodshed.

    Wow, such a compilation of amazing creatures! I am actually working on something similar that involves procedurally generating the creatures by code.

    "They're so tiny."

    "They pack a big bite ma'am."

    "Gods I would hope so."

    Guardgoyles are a variant of Stone Golem that appear as 2 foot tall winged reptile men made from stone. Greater Guardgoyles are up to 6 foot tall. They are favored by Zhentarim wizards, and can be ordered to recognize up to five people they are not to attack besides their owner. Technically they might be smart enough to recognize more, but who knows with Constructs.

    Poison (Ex): The Guardgoyle has an area in it's jaw to load poison, which it can deliver with it's bite if it chooses. This can be any Contact or Injury poison. Once it has used two doses of poison it must be refilled.

    Shriek (Su): Once per minute the Guardgoyle can unleash a hellish shriek for 6 rounds that can be easily heard up to a half a mile away. Creatures within 20 ft of the Guardgoyle must make a Concentration Check (DC is Constitution based with a +4 Racial Bonus, 14 for the Guardgoyle, 15 for the Greater Guardgoyle) to use Spells or Spell-Like abilities.

    Immunities: A Guardgoyle is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.

    A transmute rock to mud spell slows a Guardgoyle (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds, with no saving throw, while transmute mud to rock heals all of its lost hit points.

    A stone to flesh spell does not actually change the Guardgoyle's structure but negates its damage reduction and immunity to magic for 1 full round. The Guardgoyle is also immune to Electricity damage.

    Combat: One Guardgoyle will always Shriek while the others move to engage with their bites. They generally attack from ambush as most passers by will see immobile statues when looking at them.

    "So these are available only for servants of Umberlee?"

    "No ma'am, if you're willing to contribute to her cause she's willing to mercenary them out."

    "Is he trying to use his telekinesis to pick my pocket?"

    "I'll say yes..."

    Tribute Gatherers are servants of Umberlee who trawl the Oceans for treasures that can be used to finance new temples in her name. They resemble 10 foot tall grey octopi with 4 limbs. Two shorter ones that end in clawed hands, and 2 larger ones that are used to stand on land. They have flaps extending from their underside that they use to swim in the manner of rays.

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

    Constrict (Ex): A Tribute Gatherer deals 2d8+7 points of damage with a successful grapple check.

    Ink Spray (Ex): A Tribute Gatherer can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 20 feet high by 20 feet wide by 20 feet long once per minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment, which the Tribute Gatherer normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured. Creatures within this area must make a DC 20 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based) or take 4d6 acid damage each round they remain in the cloud (half damage if they succeed in their saving throw).

    Telekinesis (Sp): The Tribute Gatherer can cast Telekinesis as a Spell-Like Ability at will.

    Skills: A Tribute Gatherer also can squeeze and contort its body, giving it a +10 racial bonus on Escape Artist checks. A Tribute Gatherer has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    Combat: Gatherer's will use their Ink and Telekinesis to disrupt combat and cause distraction. Otherwise they close and try to grapple opponents into their maw.

    "So how did you manage to dominate an Efreeti Lord"

    "I'm better off not saying."

    "You sure he's controlled?"

    "Jebus, we'd better hope so."

    Noble Efreeti are 15 feet tall with skin like basalt, bronze hair and eyes of flame. They tend to dress in baggy pantaloons, jewelry and perhaps a shoulder harness for a weapon. They tend to see anyone not their masters as slaves or enemies.

    Change Size (Sp): Twice per day, an efreeti can magically change a creature’s size. This works just like an enlarge person or reduce person spell (the efreeti chooses when using the ability), except that the ability can work on the efreeti. A DC 13 Fortitude save negates the effect. The save DC is Charisma-based. This is the equivalent of a 2nd-level spell.

    Heat (Ex): An efreeti’s red-hot body deals 1d6 points of extra fire damage whenever it hits in melee, or in each round it maintains a hold when grappling.

    Spell-like Abilities (Sp): A Noble Efreeti can grant 3 Wishes (as per the spell) to any being (nongenies only) who captures it. 1/week: Discern Location, Internal Fire. 3/Day: Flame Strike, Gaseous Form, Invisibility, Misdirection, Permanent Image, Polymorph (self only), Wall of Fire. 1/Day: Fire Seeds, Fire Shield. At will: Color Spray, Detect Magic, Flame Arrow, Produce Flame, Pyrotechnics.

    Plane Shift (Sp): A genie can enter any of the elemental planes, the Astral Plane, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the genie and up to eight other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similar to the spell of the same name (caster level 13th).

    Combat: They're pretty much the same as Efreeti with a few extra abilities.

    Ghost Mount (Al-Qadim)

    Ghost Mount is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Animal normally used as a mount (usually horses or camels). They were brutally mistreated in life, and have returned from death to seek vengeance on the mortals who rode them. They appear as normal mounts but this is an illusion. Their true from is a ghostly, glowing scarred wreck.

    "This is a horse."

    "It's a dead horse."

    "Can it do anything?"

    "Only if'n you ride 'im."

    "Kinda limits them as a Minion doesn't it?"

    Size and Type: Size is Unchanged, Type becomes Undead.

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become d12's.

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: Natural Armor Bonus to AC increases by +5.

    Take Them For A Ride (Su): When a potential victim mounts a Ghost Mount it must make a Willpower Save (Save DC is 10 plus 1/2 Hit Dice plus Charisma Modifier with a +4 Racial BBonus). If the rider fails the Mount takes off in a random direction before throwing the would be master after 75 miles. If the rider leaps from the horse he takes 3d6 falling damage and is Stunned 1 round (he takes the same effects from being thrown). If the rider succeeds the Ghost Mount obeys him, but the rider must make another Willpower Save at some point during his ride (usually half way to where ever he is going). Failure means the rider gains the Wraith template (See Dragon Magazine 300). If the rider succeeds the second time the horse will obey him, but flee when they arrive at their destination.

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

    Immune to Cold Damage

    Phantom Movement (Su): Ghost Mounts can move over any terrain, taking no movement penalties of any kind.

    Watchghost is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any living Humanoid. From the waist up they appear as pale, white humanoids with empty black pits for eyes. From the waist down they are skeletal. Created solely by the magic of other powerful undead, they are freed if their creator dies, and become Chaotic and capricious.

    "I don't know about these ghosts...they seem a lot twitchier than usual."

    "DEFENESTRATE THE LIVING!"

    "Why ma'am, how can you say that? They's perfectly normal ghosts.."

    "PEEL THEM ALL LIKE BIRDS!"

    "Riiiight..."

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

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become d12's.

    Speed: Ghosts 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 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 (unless the ghost has manifested physically). The ghost also gains the following:

    Chilling Touch (Su): The Ghost permanently has the benefits of the Chill Touch spell.

    Chill Ray (Su): As a Standard Action the Watchghost can shoot a bolt of white light that is a Ranged Touch Attack with a range of 90 ft. Targets take 2d12 negative energy damage, and the target must make a Willpower Save (Save DC is 10 plus 1/2 HD plus Charisma Modifier) or be Slowed as per the spell for 2d4 rounds. It can use this attack 12/day.

    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.

    Special Qualities: A ghost has all the special qualities of the base creature as well as those described below:

    Enchanted Glow (Su): At will as a Free Action, a Watchghost can cause all magic items within 60 ft. to give off a white glow equal to torchlight for 2d4 minutes. Dispel Magic and similar effects will stop this earlier (this is effectively a 1st Level spell). Anyone holding an affected iten does not gain concealment due to darkness.

    Immunities (Ex): Watchghosts cannot be Turned, nor do they take damage from Holy Water. They are also immune to petrification, polymorph and cold damage.

    Spell Resistance equal to 10 + CR.

    Saves: Unchanged.

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

    Skills:
    Ghosts have a +8 racial bonus on Hide, Listen, Search, and Spot checks. Otherwise same as the base creature.

    Feats: Unchanged.

    Environment: Any

    Organization: Solitary, gang (2-4), or mob (7-12).

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: Unchanged.

    Alignment: Any Lawful, though without a Master the Watchghost begins quickly converting to a Chaotic Alignment over a brief period.

    Advancement: Unchanged.

    "Jebus, that has to be the hugest Minion we've seen yet."

    "Um...technically ma'am, I'm the Minion."

    Sea Demons are enormous, intelligent Octopi with 10 tentacles. They are renowned for sinking ships that come near their homes, and are voracious eaters. They have been known to come ashore to hunt in lean times, and even their own kind avoid them.

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

    Constrict (Ex): The Sea Demon does 1d10+9 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Whirlpool (Ex): As a Full Roun Action the Sea Demon can create a Maelstrom as per the spell above itself. To do this it must be more than 120 ft. below the surface, and make a Full Round Action. It maintains the Maelstrom as a Full Round Action, and can maintain it for a total of 5 rounds before needing to rest as it is Exhausted.

    Ink Cloud (Ex): A Sea Demon can emit a cloud of jet-black ink in an 80-foot spread once per minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment, which the Sea Demon normally uses to escape a fight that is going badly. Creatures within the cloud are considered to be in darkness. The ink is bad for sensitive organs like ears, and also deafens those in it's area of effect for 2d4 rounds.

    Skills: A Sea Demon also can squeeze and contort its body, giving it a +10 racial bonus on Escape Artist checks. A Sea Demon has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    Combat: Sea Demons aren't subtle and go straight for the grapple.

They have no memories of their past life, and seem to have a compulsion to perform mighty deeds.

    "So it's a nights only Minion."

    "Yes'm."

    "Why wouldn't I just hire Undead, they'd be cheaper and more common?"

    "Vampires can't break down fortress walls."

    "Vampires wouldn't need to."

    "Touche."

    The Mara are vile spirits in thrall to the Tanar'ri. At night they inhabit bodies of stone that resemble stone giant with hooked beaks. When touched by the sun their spirit is forced out into the Outer Planes until it is night again. They have their own indecipherable language similar to birds, but understand simple commands in Common and Abyssal.

    Rend (Ex): If a Mara hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent's body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 4d4+13 points of damage.

    Immunities: Mara are immune to Mind-Affecting Effects and Cold damage.

    Vulnerability: If the Mara fails a Saving Throw against Holy Word, it is forced from it's stone body for 24 hours. Likewise when is touched by sunlight (including a Daylight spell) it is forced from it's body onto one of the Outer Planes until sunlight no longer touches it's body. If entangled or mired in a body of water that isn't deep enough to prevent sunlight reaching them the Mara is destroyed.

    Scent (Ex): Identical to the ability listed in the Monster Manual.

    Sense Fiend (Ex): The Mara can sense the direction of any Outsider with the Chaos and Evil Subtypes within 30 miles of their location. The Mara have a kinship with Tanar'ri, and will willingly follow them.

    Great Walker (Ex): The Mara do not take movement penalties from difficult terrain.

    Combat: Mara aren't tactical geniuses. They simply wade into othe fray and begin clawing.

    "I call these..."

    "Nope..nope, we're out."

    Also called Bloodsacs, the Haagathga are blobs of gelatin coated in a blue-black membrane and razor toothed gold or silver suckers. They blend in perfectly well with Wildspace, which is where they spend most of their time hunting for prey. They have never communicated with another race.

    Attach (Ex): If a Haagathga hits with a touch attack, it uses its suckers to latch onto the opponent's body. An attached Haagathga is effectively grappling its prey. The Haagathga loses its Dexterity bonus to AC and has an AC of 15, but holds on with great tenacity. Haagathga have a +12 racial bonus on grapple checks (already figured into the Base Attack/Grapple entry above).

    An attached Haagathga can be struck with a weapon or grappled itself. To remove an attached Haagathga through grappling, the opponent must achieve a pin against the Haagathga. Removing the Haagathga via Grapple does 1d6 damage as it's suckers rip free.

    Blood Drain (Ex): A Haagathga drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage in any round when it begins its turn attached to a victim.

    Memory Drain (Ex): If a Haagathga complettely drains a victim it takes a Full Round Action to drain it's victims spinal fluids. For 24 hours after the Haagathga has the Int Score, memories and skill ranks of it's victim. A victim Raised or Resurrected from the dead has no memories and is effectively a 1st Level commoner. To fully restore him the Haagathga must be killed or a Wish must be casy.

    Camouflage (Ex): The Haagathga can use the Hide skill in wildspace, even if the terrain doesn't grant cover or concealment.

    Vulnerability: Haagathga are natives of Wildspace, entry to an area with normal or heavier gravity destroys them instantly.

    Combat: Haagathga swoop down silently on ships and pick off their crew one by one. If one of them senses food the rest follow it.

    "Good thing you keep this one in a cage. How do you expect it to be a guard with that temper?"

    "We're hoping to crowdfund research money for that."

    Harriers begin life as worms with translucent skin and toothless beaks. Given enough food they molt within 2 months and emerge as miniature adults. The adults are mostly humanoid with slightly pointed ears, blowing red eyes and vicious fanged beaks. Their hands and feet are clawed, and a gliding membrane stretches between their limbs. They have no society, and with the exception of mating season attack any living creature they see regardless of the danger. In tough times they will even devour one another.

    Rake (Ex): Attack Bonus +2, damage 1d4+1.

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

    Constrict (Ex): Harriers do 2d4+2 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Glide (Ex): When flying a Harrier loses 5 ft. in height for every 10 ft. it moves forward (it may not fly up).

    Camouflage (Ex): A Harrier can use the Hide skill in any sort it's native terrain, even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.

    Combat: Harriers are vicious predators that will attack anything entering their territory, even if it likely means their own death. Even Dragons won't make them back down.

    [size=14pt]"YOU! STEP AWAY FROM THE MERCHANDISE TABLE"[/size]

    "No Iblis! We want them to approach the merchandise table!"

    "Sorry boss, force of habit."

    Guardians are Efreeti tasked with guarding wealth for so long it has warped them. They appear slightly shorter than usual, but with an additional face on the back of it's head, and knobby, rhinoceros like hide. The are humorless, and solitary, having no love for conversation.

    Breath Weapon (Su): 1/day a Guardian Genie can spit a cloud of green fire in a 30 ft. cone. Anything in this area can make a DC 20 Reflex Save to take half damage. It does 14d6 Fire damage.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): 2/day: Alarm, Detect Invisibility, Explosive Runes, Ghoul Glyph, Glyph of Warding, Guards and Wards, Sepia Snake Sigil, Shout, Silence. 1/day: Blade Barrier.

    Heightened Senses (Ex): Guardian Genies can always Take 20 on Listen and Spot Checks. They are also immune to being flanked.

    Spell Immunity (Ex): Guardian Genies are immune to spells from the Enchantment and Illusion schools (as well as Spell-Like Abilities or Supernatural Abilities that produce the same effects).

    Plane Shift (Sp): A genie can enter any of the elemental planes, the Astral Plane, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the genie and up to eight other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similar to the spell of the same name (caster level 13th).

    Combat: Despite their focus the Guardian Genies have no great love for violence. They will give warnings, but if they aren't heeded they go for spellcasters first.

    Slayers are burned out madmen who have been forevermore tasked with slaughter. They are massively muscled Genies with dark skin and four arms. 2 of their arms end in clawed hands, and the others end in Lions paws. Their red eyes burn with fire and above them sets a green cat's eye. They also have two batlike wings. Due to their obsession with bloodshed it is not wise to leave them untasked for very long.

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

    Rage (Ex): A Slayer that takes damage in combat flies into a berserk rage on its next turn, clawing and biting madly until either it or its opponent is dead. It gains +4 to Strength, +4 to Constitution, and -2 to Armor Class. The creature cannot end its rage voluntarily.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At Will: Blindness/Deafness, Darkness, Dimension Door, Gaseous Form, Greater Invisibility, Misdirection, Polymorph (self only), Silence, Ventriloquism.

    Elemental Endurance (Ex): Slayers are immune to the effects of the elemental and Astral Planes as though they were native to them.

    Plane Shift (Sp): A genie can enter any of the elemental planes, the Astral Plane, or the Material Plane. This ability transports the genie and up to eight other creatures, provided they all link hands with the genie. It is otherwise similar to the spell of the same name (caster level 13th).

    Combat: Slayers prefer melee as it's up close and personal, but will use ranged weapons if necessary. Weapons of choice include scimitars, axes, cleaving polearms, morning stars, and maces.

    "Congratulations sir, that's the most terrifying minion I've seen all day."

    "He's no Minion ma'am, he's the conventions official translator."

    "Awkward."

    Greelox resemble very black whip scorpions that have two humanoid arms in addition to their usual appendages. Solitary on the Prime Material Plane, they are rumored to have entire cities on the Demiplane of Shadow.

    Poison (Ex): Injury, DC 18 Fortitude Save, Initial and Secondary damage is 1d4 temporary Constitution damage. If the Save is successful the victim is still Nauseated for 1d6 rounds.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At Will: Dimension Door (only in areas of darkness or shadowy illumination), Shadow Magic. Caster Level is 9th.

    Acid Webbing (Ex): Greelox often wait in their webs or in trees, then lower themselves silently on silk strands and leap onto prey passing beneath. A single strand is strong enough to support the Greelox and one creature of the same size. Greelox can throw a web eight times per day. This is similar to an attack with a net but has a maximum range of 90 feet, with a range increment of 15 feet, and is effective against targets up to one size category larger than the Greelox. An entangled creature can escape with a successful DC 16 Escape Artist check or burst it with a DC 20 Strength check. Both are standard actions. The check DCs are Constitution-based, and the Strength check DC includes a +4 racial bonus.

    Greelox often create sheets of sticky webbing from 5 to 60 feet square. They usually position these sheets to snare flying creatures but can also try to trap prey on the ground. Approaching creatures must succeed on a DC 20 Spot check to notice a web; otherwise they stumble into it and become trapped as though by a successful web attack. Attempts to escape or burst the webbing gain a +5 bonus if the trapped creature has something to walk on or grab while pulling free. Each 5-foot section has 12 hit points, and sheet webs have damage reduction 5/—.

    A Greelox can move across its own web at its climb speed and can pinpoint the location of any creature touching its web. Any creature in contact with the web takes 1 point of Acid damage per round. This acid only affects organic material.

    Polyglot (Ex): Greelox are proficient with languages, knowing a number of them equal to half their Int Score. They can learn any language by studying it for 1 hour.

    Skills: Greelox have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Spot checks and a +8 racial bonus on Climb and Jump checks. A Greelox can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. Greelox use either their Strength or Dexterity modifier for Climb checks, whichever is higher.

    Combat: Greelox prefer to fight from range with their SLA's and webbing. Their poison is reserved for anything getting close. They sometimes wield weapons or shields in their human hands, but this is rare unless the items are magical.

    Inquisitor (Forgotten Realms)

    [size=12pt]"CONFESS!"[/size]

    "Yer effin' creepy."

    "Hey, just cause I'm dead don't mean I ain't got feelings."

    Inquisitor is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any living Humanoid via a long lost magical ritual. Often mistaken for zombies, they are rotting corpses with mucous dripping from both eyes and mouths. Hands are often charred from years of wielding heated torture implements. They are obsessed with the perfection of torture, and often take slaves to feed their urges even if they are not being employed to do so.

    Size and Type: Type changes to Undead.

    Hit Dice: All current and future Hit Dice become d12's, and hp must be recalculated.

    Speed: All base movement speeds are reduced by -5 ft.

    Armor Class:
    Natural Armor Bonus to Ac increases by +6.

    Attacks: The Base Creature gains a Claw attack if it doesn't already have one. It does 2 Claws with a Full Attack.

    Damage:
    Base damage for Claws depends on the Base Creatures size: Small (1d4 plus Str Modifier), Medium (1d6 plus Str Modifier), Large (2d4 plus Str Modifier).

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

    Fear Aura (Su): Inquisitors are shrouded in a dreadful aura of death and evil. Creatures of less than 5 HD in a 60-foot radius that look at the Inquisitor must succeed on a Will save or be affected as though by a fear spell from a sorcerer of the Inquisitor's level. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same Inquisitor's aura for 24 hours.

    Gaze (Su): Paralyzed for 1d4 rounds, 30 ft., Willpower Save negates.

    Disease (Su): Supernatural disease, claw, Fortitude Save, incubation period 1 minute; damage 1d6 Str and 1d6 Con. The save DC is Charisma-based.

    Unlike normal diseases, Wasting continues until the victim reaches Constitution 0 (and dies) or is cured as described below.

    Wasting is a powerful curse, not a natural disease. A character attempting to cast any conjuration (healing) spell on a creature afflicted with Wasting must succeed on a DC 20 caster level check, or the spell has no effect on the afflicted character.

    To eliminate Wasting, the curse must first be broken with break enchantment or remove curse (requiring a DC 20 caster level check for either spell), after which a caster level check is no longer necessary to cast healing spells on the victim, and the Wasting can be magically cured as any normal disease.

    Torture (Ex): Each day the Inquisitor tortures a victim, that victim must make a Willpower save or suffer Insanity as per the spell.

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

    Immunity to Mind-Affecting effects.

    Torture Addiction (Ex): The Inquisitor has to torture at least 1 victim a year or take 1d6 damage. This damage cannot be healed until the Inquisitor finds and tortures a victim.

    Turn Resistance (Ex): The base creature gains +2 Turn Resistance.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: +4 Int, +4 Wis, +4 Cha. Constitution Score becomes -.

    Skills:
    Gains a +4 Racial Bonus to Intimidate, Profession (Torturer) and Sense Motive Checks.

    Feats: Gains Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Whip) as a Bonus Feat.

    Environment: Any, usually Underground.

    Organization:
    Solitary.

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: Unchanged.

    Alignment: Always Lawful Evil.

    "It's a tree."

    "Yes'm. Classic example in a historied lineage of evil trees."

    Hangman Trees look like oak trees with sparse foliage and noose-like vines. At the top of the main trunk is a gaping maw which leads to the trees stomach. They do not gain sufficient nutrition from their roots, and must supplement with live prey.

    Attach (Ex): If a Tree hits with a touch attack, it uses its vines to latch onto the opponent’s head and neck. An attached Tree is effectively grappling its prey. The Tree loses its Dexterity bonus to AC, but holds on with great tenacity.

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

    Constrict (Ex): A Hangman Tree deals 1d4+9 points of damage with a successful grapple check.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): A Hangman Tree can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check. The swallowed creature takes 2d8+9 points of bludgeoning damage and 9 points of acid damage per round from the Hangman Tree's stomach. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 16). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

    A Huge Hangman Tree's stomach can hold 2 Medium, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

    Hallucinatory Perfume (Ex): Living creatures within 60 ft. of the Hangman Tree must make a DC 20 Willpower Save or perceive the Hangman Tree as a normal tree (or a Treant if it moves and speaks) as long as it remains within range and the Hangman Tree doesn't attack. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same Hangman Tree's perfume for 24 hours. A delay poison or neutralize poison spell removes the effect from an affected creature. Creatures with immunity to poison are unaffected, and creatures resistant to poison receive their normal bonus on their saving throws. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Vulnerabilities: The Hangman Tree takes double damage from electricity. If a Darkness spell is cast on the Hangman Tree it must make a Willpower Save (DC 12 plus casting stat modifier) or be Slowed as per the spell. If it successfully takes Cold damage it must make a Willpower Save or be Paralyzed for 1d4 rounds.

    Camouflage (Ex): A Hangman Tree can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesn't grant cover or concealment.

    Skills: Hangman Trees gain a +8 Racial Bonus on Hide Checks in it's native forest, and a +8 Racial Bonus to Disguise Checks meant to appear as a tree.

    Combat: Hangmen usually just hang in the background and let their perfume do it's work. They won't attack until prey is right at hand.

    Incantifer

    "Greetings. I understand you have quite the history?"

    "I can fart pure sound energy."

    "There's a skill that comes in handy in life..."

    "Is that sarcasm?"

    Incantifer is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any living creature with at least 9 Levels in the Wizard Class and who know the Permanency spell. They were once part of a Faction called the Incanterium that was obsessed with magical learning. They appear frail and elderly, but their unnatural grace and blank, silver eyes give them away. Often loaded down with magic items, their years of solitary research have left them rude and often emotionally twisted.

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: Unchanged.

    Attacks: Unchanged.

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

    Magical Hardiness (Ex): It's ability to absorb magic relieves the Incantifer of the need to eat, drink or breathe, and it no longer age. The Incantifer also permanetly has the benefits ofo an Endure Elements spell.

    Spell Resistance (Ex): Incantifers gain Spell Resistance equal to 15 plus CR.

    Absorption (Su): If an opponent fails to get through the Incantifers Spell Resistance it absorbs the spell and heals damage equal to the spells level. It can even absorb a targeted Dispel Magic. A running total of absorbed (and used) spell levels should be kept. The Incantifer can use captured spell energy to cast any spell she has prepared, without expending the preparation itself. The only restrictions are that the levels of spell energy stored must be equal to or greater than the level of the spell the Incantifer wants to cast, that any material components required for the spell be present.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: +8 Str, +8 Dex, +4 Int, -4 Cha.

    Inheritor Lich

    "Holy mother of Jebus!"

    "I can assure you madam, I am no one's mother."

    "I think her exclamation had something to do with you resembling a Half-Abomination Toad that was killed and left to boil in the sun."

    Inheritor Lich is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Humanoid of at least 15 HD who can undergo the alchemical process, and has a cinnabryl item to use as a phylactery.

    Size and Type: The creature’s type changes to undead. Do not recalculate base attack bonus, saves, or skill points. Size is unchanged.

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

    Speed: Unchanged.

    Armor Class: A lich has a +5 natural armor bonus or the base creature’s natural armor bonus, whichever is better.

    Attacks: A lich has a touch attack that it can use once per round. If the base creature can use weapons, the lich retains this ability. A creature with natural weapons retains those natural weapons. A lich fighting without weapons uses either its touch attack or its primary natural weapon (if it has any). A lich armed with a weapon uses its touch or a weapon, as it desires. If armed with a weapon, it usually uses the weapon as its primary attack along with a touch as a natural secondary attack, provided it has a way to make that attack (either a free hand or a natural weapon that it can use as a secondary attack).

    Damage: A lich without natural weapons has a touch attack that uses negative energy to deal 1d8+5 points of damage to living creatures; a Will save (DC 10 + ½ lich’s HD + lich’s Cha modifier) halves the damage. A lich with natural weapons can use its touch attack or its natural weaponry, as it prefers. If it chooses the latter, it deals 1d8+5 points of extra damage on one natural weapon attack.

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

    Legacies (Su): Inheritor Liches are horribly mutated by the Vermeil dust saturating their homes. The exact effect depends on which Location they are in. Region 1 Liches typically have Armor, Burn, Grow, or Senses. Region 2 can have Animal Form, Crimson Fire, Farsight, Meld, Sleep, or Spikes. Region 3 may have All-Around Vision, Ball of Fire, Separation, Shock, or Shrink. Region 4 has Acid Touch, Duplicate, Poison, Spell Shield, or Weaken. While deformed they take no penalties from the Red Curse and do not need Cinnabryl. Inheritor Liches typically have 1 Legacy for every 3 Hit Dice.

    Touch Attack (Su): If an opponent fails it's Saving Throw against the Liches touch attack, it suffers a day in The Time of Loss and Change, taking one point of Ability damage based on what Legacies it possesses. Opponents without Legacies take one point of temporary Ability damage from a random Ability.

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

    Turn Resistance (Ex): The base creature gains Turn Resistance +4.

    Damage Reduction (Su): The base creature gains DR 15/Bludgeoning and Magic. Its natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

    Immunities (Ex): Liches have immunity to cold, electricity, polymorph (though they can use polymorph effects on themselves), and mind-affecting attacks. They are not vulnerable to smokepowder the way living Inheritors are, and may use wheellock pistols. They are also immune to the offensive effects of any Legacy it possesses. For example if it has the Burn Legacy, it is immune to damage from anyone else using the Burn Legacy.

    Saves: Unchanged.

    Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Int +2, Wis +2, Cha +2. Being undead, a lich has no Constitution score.

    Skills: Liches have a +8 racial bonus on Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Search, Sense Motive, and Spot checks. Otherwise same as the base creature.

    Feats: Unchanged.

    Environment: Unchanged.

    Organization: Solitary or troupe (1 Lich and 2d6 Cursed Ones).

    Challenge Rating: +2

    Treasure: Standard coins; double goods; double items.

    Alignment: Any evil.

    Advancement:
    By character class.

    Level Adjustment: +4


    LEGACIES
    Legacies may be activated 3/day as a Full Round Action. They are Exceptional Abilities unless mentioned otherwise. An Inheritor Lich may end the effects of a Legacy early voluntarily, but if damaged when activating one it must make a Concentration to activate it successfully much in the same manner as a Spellcaster casting a spell. Saving Throw DC's if any are 10 plus half Hit Dice plus Charisma Bonus.

    Acid Touch The Lich drools a slightly acidic substance and it's bites does additional acid damage equal to the Troll's Hit Dice plus 1.

    All-Around Vision 4 eyes grow on the Liches body lasting 1/round per Hit Die. He gains a +2 Bonus to Initiative and Spot Checks and cannot be Flanked.

    Animal Form The Lich is permanently a fish from the waist down and loses it's land speed. It may change into any Animal the same Size Class as itself for 2 rounds/Hit Die. This is identical to the Alternate Form ability. Any equipment melds into the new form, and if the animal has a mouth the Troll can speak.

    Armor The Lich gains red scales for 1 round/Hit Die. It provides a +1 Natural AC Bonus per every 3 Hit DIce to a maximum increase of +5.

    Ball of Fire The Liches skin turns red briefly as it throws a ball of fire at an opponent doing 1d4 fire damage per every 3 Hit Dice to a maximum of 6d4. It is a Ranged attack with a Range Increment of 10 ft. If it hits anything combustible it automatically sets fire to it.

    Burn The Liches skin turns red briefly as it unleashes fire as a touch attack doing 1d4 Fire damage, plus 1 point per Hit Die. At Level 5 and every 5 levels thereafter range increases +5' to a maximum of 10'.

    Crimson Fire The Liches eyes glow bright red for 2 rounds/Hit Die. During this time it may cast Faerie Fire at will.

    Duplicate The Lich grows an Illusory third arm for 2 rounds/level, and it is under the effect of a Mirror Image spell during this time.

    Farsight The Liches eyes grow on stalks, and for 2 rounds/Hit Die it can alter the focus of it's vision to see clearly (even read) for up to 300' per Hit Die (to a maximum of 1 Mile).

    Grow One of the Liches limbs is twice it's normal size. For two rounds per Hit Die it's SIze Class increases by 1 with all the attendant effects this brings (see Monster Manual).

    Meld Anytime the Lich is at rest it's skin color slowly beings changing to that of it's surroundings. For 2 rounds per Hit Die, the Troll and up to 100 pounds of equipment can meld with any wood, earth, or stone object. This is otherwise identical to the Meld into Stone spell.

    Poison The Lich grows a stinging tail which does damage and has the same poison as a Monstrous Scorpion of the same Size Class for 1 round per Hit Die.

    Senses The Liches eyes, nose, tongue, ears and fingers become elongated or exaggerated. For 2 rounds per Hit Die it can increase it's senses. It gains Tremorsense 30', and can Take 20 on Search, Spot, and Listen Checks. Optionally it may instead use one of it's daily uses to remove any effect making it Blind or Deaf.

    Separation One of the Liches eyes is permanently detached painlessly, and will fall out occasionally if the Lich isn't careful. The Lich can see through this eye regardless of distance, and if it is destroyed the Troll gains a new eye in 1d6 days. The eye has hit points equal to the Liches Hit Dice, and the Same Natural AC Bonus. It is Size Class Fine.

    Shock The Lich is constantly charged with static electricity. The Lich may use Shocking Grasp whenever it activates this Legacy.

    Shrink
    The Lich has a pinhead. For 2 rounds per Level it can cause a single other being it can see to decrease in Size Class one step if it is Large or Smaller with all the attendant effects this brings (see Monster Manual) if it fails a Willpower Save.

    Sleep The Lich always appears tired. It may cast Sleep on one creature with a duration of 2 rounds per Hit Die. There is no Hit Die limit on what creatures it can effect, but it must maintain Concentration to keep the victim asleep.

    Spell Shield A glowing red disk orbits the Lich for 2 rounds per Hit Die. The Lich gains a +1 Bonus on Saving Throws per every three Hit Dice up to a maximum of +7.

    Spikes The Lich becomes covered in fleshy spikes for 2 rounds per Hit Die. Opponents attacking the Lich with Unarmed Strikes, Natural Weapons, or Grapples take 1d6 piercing damage plus their own Str Modifier. The Lich also gains a Bonus to Grapple Checks equal to it's Hit Dice, and does 1d6 +Str piercing damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Weaken The Lich appears horribly emaciated. For 1 round per Level the Lich gains a Melee Touch attack doing 1d6 Strength Damage unless it's opponent makes a Willpower Save.

    Greater Guardgoyle needs a second feat. How about improved multiattack?
    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.

    "That is not a bird..."

    "It has feathers."

    "So does my hat, that doesn't make it a bird."

    Created using the same process used to make the Owlbear, the Jaleeda Bird is an unholy amalgamation of ape and eagle. Created by a mage to keep people off his land, the birds are horrifically savage due to being in constant pain. The only safe passage is underwater as the Jaleeda hate water.

    Screech (Ex): Jaleeda Birds can unsettle foes with their mere screeching as a Standard Action. Creatures within a radius of 30 feet are subject to the effect if they have fewer HD than the bird. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a DC 14 Will save (Save DC is Charisma based) remains immune to that birds 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.

    Immunity: Jaleeda Birds are immune to spells from the Charm subschool, as well as powers or effects that mimic them.

    Combat: Jaleeda Birds fight with no provocation and never retreat or surrender. Anything entering their territory is assaulted immediately for they are not tactical geniuses.

    "Flying mind control blobs?"

    "THEY DO NOT CONTROL MINDS! THEY MERELY LIKE TO SNUGGLE!"

    "There's one under your hat isn't there?"

    "ABSOLUTELY NOT!"

    "So you won't mind taking it off?"

    "CRAP, WE"VE BEEN MADE! RUN DWARF! RUN QUITE FAST!"

    Small yellow oozes that resemble floating jellyfish. It protects itself and gathers food by mind controlling other creatures. It only bonds with carnivores, and hides from obviously supernatural beings. They spin a cocoon and go dormant in times of little food.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will: Charm Monster, Detect Thoughts.

    Veil (Su): The Jelly may cast Veil at will as a Supernatural ability as a 5th Level Sorcerer.

    Combat: The Jelly uses it's Veil ability to make it's Charmed aide to appear weak, with some sort of treasure or food it's guarding. It will then direct it's charmed host in combat, gaining energy from it as the host devours victims.

    Hey, Bhu! Glad to see you're still making creatures here.

    Just wanted to let you know, there are a few references to Trolls in your Inheritor Lich, specifically under Acid Touch, Meld, Animal Form, and Separation. I don't know if those are supposed to be there, haha!

    Hi Bhu! Really like your creativity with the Critters threads and many others! I'm running a homebrew campaign with a "Lost world" vibe and so many of your creations fit the bill!

    Also saw your and LOTR work in the "More Dinosaurs than Isla Nublar" thread while searching for dinos and its absolutely great, if you might remember anywhere else where such content may be found and share it would be greatly appreciated! (Already saw the old "Dinosaur menagerie" thread from the WOTC forums, but most pages were never saved by the wayback machine).

    Anyway, keep it up! Its now bookmarked on my end.
