    Default [Creature]The Vengeful Hands

    These guys were made with help from a friend of mine (who is very very awesome :3), but she's more familiar with 3.0 than 3.5, so there might be quirks. I'm also not too sure on the CR, but both of the approximators here gave me 7, so 7 it shall be. :V

    They're from Resident Evil 4. One of them (the Right Hand) is a boss at one point, and the two of them serve as the guards for Ramon Salazar, one of the BBEG's underlings.

    And with that:

    Advancement Whoo I don't know :V
    Level Adjustment -

    Appearance They are a little over 7 feet tall and are roughly 350 lbs.. Unrobed, they are lean and sinewey, giving the impression of well-compacted and controlled power. Their skin is black and chitinous, barely glimmering in the light. In contrast, their faces are stark white, like exposed bone, with vaguely humanoid facial structure, but with a complex set of mandibles where a mouth would be. Their eyes glow a muted, but easily visible, red. They have a long, flexible tail that ends in a wickedly sharp blade, and their arms end in a hand with two fingers and a thumb opposite them. Their legs are long and digitigrade. The Verdugo usually wear robes (Black with red trimming for Left, Red with black trimming for Right), and always carry their heavy spears as they accompany their Master.

    Combat Verdugo are intelligent and completely dedicated to the protection of their Master. Everything, including their own personal health, is secondary to him. They are more than capable of tactics, and usually use their burrowing capabilities to keep themselves out of reach and to strike unexpectedly. When their Master is in danger, they become vicious and straightforward, using their superior strength to force his attackers back and away from him.

    Plagas Communication (Ex): When within 20' of another Plagas-bearer, they are in constant mental contact. If one is aware of a particular danger, they all are. If one in a group is not flatfooted, none of them are. No Plagas-bearer in a group is considered flanked unless all of them are.

    Cold Weakness (Ex): Attacks dealing cold damage slow a Verdugo (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds and deal double damage. The Verdugo gets no saving throw against any of these effects.

    Tremorsense (Ex): This only functions when they are burrowing.

    As a huge fan of RE4, I must say that this is very nice. Good stats, as far as I can see. I agree with the CR; 7 looks about right. I'd like to see/make more Plagas critters.

    I'm working on a template for normal Plagas bearers and a Master; And then I'll go from there. :3

    Perhaps my favorite RE baddie. I prefer the Right-Hand, black with red trim FTW.

    That's the left hand XD

    In the game, they're on Ramon Salazar's wrong side; Left is on his right.

    "Oh no we're on the wrong side what do we do?" D:

    "SSSH Don't...don't mention it. Maybe no one'll notice." ._.

    Ah. Oh well, they are still pretty cool. I guess having a parasitic organism inside you messes with your senses of direction. And it's interesting how well they've bonded with the infection, as opposed to the more ungainly or grotesque Plagas forms (ex: the Chief). I wonder if they'll be in RE5, with any possible further evolutions/adaptations.

    Edit: Maybe add the ability to sneak attack with its tail through the ground as it burrows.

    The Verdugo were experiments that Saddler did, that's why they bonded so well. (mad science + people == profit?)

    The other experiment-monsters are El Gigante, the Novistadors, the Regenerator, and the Iron Maiden. (I'll eventually stat them if I don't get distracted by something else :V ) The Ganado, Comillos (the dogs), the Armordura (the...armors), the Garradors, and Del Lago are all the natural ones.

    Giving them sneak attacks is a little much. With the Spring Attack, they can emulate that, and they're already terrifying close-combatants.
