I need a monster that is intelligent enough to roam a drow castle as a sort of watch dog. He is large, reptilian, with big spikes that come out of back, and has high AC, hp, and BAB. He probably has Scent, Tracking, and ambush tactics. Looking for a CR around 15.

I need a monster (or group of weaker monsters) that is able to survive in a harsh desert area heavy with monster hunting cleric types (so no undead).

Not too sure about CR but will be going against about 20 level 1 soldiers (expendable), 5 level 5-10ish PCs (stupid) and have a special ability able to hold back a level 12 fighter (arrogent)


yeah, I'm no good with comeing up with desert dwelling creatures.

Animate Cactus (Sp)
A Cactica can animate Cactus within 180 feet at will, controlling up to two Cactus at a time. It takes 1 full round for a normal Cactus to uproot itself. Thereafter it moves at a speed of 10 feet and fights as a Cactica in all respects. Animated Cactus lose their ability to move if the Cactica that animated them is incapacitated or moves out of range. The ability is otherwise similar to liveoak (caster level 12th). Animated Cactica have the same vulnerability to fire that a treant has.

Double Damage against Objects (Ex)
A Cactica or animated Cactus that makes a full attack against an object or structure deals double damage.

Trample (Ex)
Reflex DC 22 half. The save DC is Strength-based.

Skills: *Cacticas have a +16 racial bonus on Hide checks made in desert areas.

Improved Grab (Ex)
To use this ability, an octopia must hit an opponent of any size with its arms 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 automatically deals bite damage.

Ink Cloud (Ex)
An octopia can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 60 feet high by 60 feet wide by 60 feet long once per minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment, which the octopia normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured.

Jet (Ex)
An octopia can jet backward once per round as a full-round action, at a speed of 200 feet. It must move in a straight line, but does not provoke attacks of opportunity while jetting.

Sonic breath
every 2d4 rounds, 30 ft 6d6, Reflex DC 30

Telepathy 100 ft
With all creatures that have a language and all octopi

Skills
An octopia can change colors, giving it a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks. An octopia also can squeeze and contort its body, giving it a +10 racial bonus on Escape Artist checks.

If you please, hook me up with something that can kill a 12th level monk (tactically smart, but annoying) and is immune to force effects, while being a fairly easy kill for a four member party of the same level.

We'll see who can do without who.

Incedentally, I love the repurposed stats. It's a great time saver, and I'm going to have to start using it.

Hmm, theres a kinda sadistic monster I always wanted to make that is basicly a giant snake made of the corpses of children. It was essentialy made to mess with the players mentaly what with the children's bodies crying anytime the monster is attacked.

Anyways I always pictured it as being a large undead with a powerful bite attack and the ability to grapple anyone who attempts melee combat with it and then drag them inside the thing. Unless the PC is a child (in wich case a will safe vs death is needed) it takes crushing damage from the creature trying to crush it from the inside. I suppose I should give it some poison and a tail slap attack too. I've had this creature on my mind for quite some time and if you statted it I'd realy appreciate it. Sadly I have no idea were to begin making custom monsters myself.

Oooh, perhaps when attacked all who can see the monster must make a will save or be shaken cause a giant snake made out of crying undead children can't possibly be not disturbing (though I'm sure there are some players who would argue this point). Maby just made a modified dragon and alter the aura of fear. Anything else you think might be neat feel free to add and thanks.

In need for a tiny monster to annoy my PC's.

To be correct ; a hand once belonging to an arcane trickster, wich got cut off as a punnishment for his crimes. The arcane trickster was killed and his body destroyed, but the hand has been locked away. Fueled by his hatred it came to life, but still caged for a few 100 years, growing slightly insane. The PC's will probably open it's vault.

I want this one to be a pain in the ass. Stealing, backstabbing, poisoning any good creature it encounters.

Suggested : Some magical abilities (invisibilty?) , some rings containing various poisons, some strangle ability, ....

CR should be around 6 - 7.

Thx for the help and great post , keep up the good work :)

You've got plenty of crunch in this thread, but you need at least a little fluff to go with it.

Level Adjustment: +1 (cohort)
A typical worg has gray or black fur, grows to 5 feet long and stands 3 feet tall at the shoulder. It weighs 300 pounds.

More intelligent than their smaller cousins, worgs speak their own language. Some can also speak Common and Goblin.

Combat
Mated pairs or packs work together to bring down large game, while lone worgs usually chase down creatures smaller than themselves. Both often use hit-and-run tactics to exhaust their quarry. A pack usually circles a larger opponent: Each wolf attacks in turn, biting and retreating, until the creature is exhausted, at which point the pack moves in for the kill. If they get impatient or heavily outnumber the opponent, worgs attempt to pin it.

Trip (Ex)
A worg that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+3 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the worg.

Skills
A worg has a +1 racial bonus on Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks, and a +2 racial bonus on Hide checks. *A worg has a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.

Ok, here's a request for either a monster or a specific race, depending on how you want to look at it.

It's a race of aberrations from another dimension/plane/whatever, that's really big into mass warfare. They're highly technological/civilized, so no pustulous swarms of gibbering madness. They swarm in, form battle lines, raze entire continents, entire planets. The stronger the opposition becomes, the stronger they seem to be able to hit back. They've wiped out empires because of this.

The thing that I can't figure out how to do is how to make this effect scale backwards as well. Their mode of thinking doesn't even register individual combat, so while they're individually able to fight back against small bands of attackers, they're usually very bad at it and seem barely even aware of it. But have the attackers form an armada, and they can wipe it out no problem.

How the race ends up looking is up in the air, as they need to be as alien as possible (ie. not humanoid).

A closer look at a Demarcall reveals that the palms of its hands are where the backs of the hands would be on a human.

A Demarcall is about the same height and weight as a human.

Demarcalls speak Common, Infernal, and Undercommon.

Combat
In close combat, which a Demarcall disdains as ignoble, it employs its sharp claws and powerful bite. Whenever possible, it uses its other abilities to make such encounters unnecessary.

Detect Thoughts (Su)
A Demarcall can continuously use detect thoughts as the spell (caster level 18th; Will DC 15 negates). It can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Spells
A Demarcall casts spells as a 7th-level sorcerer.

Typical Sorcerer Spells Known (6/7/7/5; save DC 13 + spell level)
0—detect magic, light, mage hand, message, read magic, resistance, touch of fatigue; 1st—charm person, mage armor, magic missile, shield, silent image; 2nd—bear’s endurance, invisibility, acid arrow; 3rd—haste, suggestion.

Change Shape (Su)
A Demarcall can assume any humanoid form, or revert to its own form, as a standard action. In humanoid form, a Demarcall loses its claw and bite attacks (although it often equips itself with weapons and armor instead). A Demarcall remains in one form until it chooses to assume a new one. A change in form cannot be dispelled, but the Demarcall reverts to its natural form when killed. A true seeing spell reveals its natural form.

Skills
A Demarcall has a +4 racial bonus on Bluff and Disguise checks. *When using change shape, a Demarcall gains an additional +10 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks. If reading an opponent’s mind, its circumstance bonus on Bluff and Disguise checks increases by a further +4.

I think this should do (damage reduction/chaos makes it a very difficult kill for monks) and it isn't to powerfull to completely kill a 12th level party

Hmm, theres a kinda sadistic monster I always wanted to make that is basicly a giant snake made of the corpses of children. It was essentialy made to mess with the players mentaly what with the children's bodies crying anytime the monster is attacked.

Anyways I always pictured it as being a large undead with a powerful bite attack and the ability to grapple anyone who attempts melee combat with it and then drag them inside the thing. Unless the PC is a child (in wich case a will safe vs death is needed) it takes crushing damage from the creature trying to crush it from the inside. I suppose I should give it some poison and a tail slap attack too. I've had this creature on my mind for quite some time and if you statted it I'd realy appreciate it. Sadly I have no idea were to begin making custom monsters myself.

Oooh, perhaps when attacked all who can see the monster must make a will save or be shaken cause a giant snake made out of crying undead children can't possibly be not disturbing (though I'm sure there are some players who would argue this point). Maby just made a modified dragon and alter the aura of fear. Anything else you think might be neat feel free to add and thanks.

the dragon idea is what i think is the best

Combat
Flesh Dragons prefer to ambush their targets, using their surroundings as cover. When fighting in heavily forested swamps and marshes, they try to stay in the water or on the ground; trees and leafy canopies limit their aerial maneuverability. When outmatched, a Flesh Dragon attempts to fly out of sight, so as not to leave tracks, and hide in a deep pond or bog.

Breath Weapon (Su)
A Flesh Dragon has one type of breath weapon, a line of vileness (vile damage).

Water Breathing (Ex)
A Flesh Dragon can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use its breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged.

Corrupt Water (Sp)
Once per day an adult or older Flesh Dragon can stagnate 10 cubic feet of water, making it become still, foul, and unable to support animal life. The ability spoils liquids containing water. Magic items (such as potions) and items in a creature’s possession must succeed on a Will save (DC equal to that of the dragon’s frightful presence) or become fouled. This ability is the equivalent of a 1st-level spell. Its range is equal to that of the dragon’s frightful presence.

Charm Reptiles (Sp)
A great wyrm Flesh Dragon can use this ability three times per day. It works as a mass charm spell that affects only reptilian animals. The dragon can communicate with any charmed reptiles as though casting a speak with animals spell. This ability is the equivalent of a 1st-level spell.

Other Spell-Like Abilities
3/day—darkness (juvenile or older; radius 10 feet per age category), insect plague (ancient or older); 1/day—plant growth (old or older).

Skills
Hide, Move Silently, and Swim are considered class skills for Flesh Dragons.

True dragon traits: they've got true dragon traits except that the frightfull presence range is doubled

Swallow whole: a Flesh Dragon can swallow creatures up to their size. creatures they swallowed are subject to their breath attack if the Flesh Dragon uses it and two turns afterwards.

Child kill: if a flesh dragon swallows a child they are subject to the this death attack every turn, will save (DC 10 + ½ dragon’s HD + dragon’s Cha modifier), if the child dies it adds one year to the dragons age. children are one size category smaller than adults

no natural aging

If a Flesh dragon is destroyed an egg is left out of which a new Flesh dragon wyrmling hatches in 1d12 months, the egg is indestuctible

Tried to make the tables more readable but it was too much work, hope you can figure it out

In need for a tiny monster to annoy my PC's.

To be correct ; a hand once belonging to an arcane trickster, wich got cut off as a punnishment for his crimes. The arcane trickster was killed and his body destroyed, but the hand has been locked away. Fueled by his hatred it came to life, but still caged for a few 100 years, growing slightly insane. The PC's will probably open it's vault.

I want this one to be a pain in the ass. Stealing, backstabbing, poisoning any good creature it encounters.

Suggested : Some magical abilities (invisibilty?) , *some rings containing various poisons, some strangle ability, ....

CR should be around 6 - 7.

Thx for the help and great post , keep up the good work :)

This is exactly like the arcane trickster ability of the same name.

Invisibility
As a swift action a tricksters hand can turn invisible or visible, this works as greater invisibility. this ability is usable at will

Poison sneak
Whenever a tricksters hand sneak attacks he can forgo 3d6 sneak attack damage for the poison spell

Ok, here's a request for either a monster or a specific race, depending on how you want to look at it.

It's a race of aberrations from another dimension/plane/whatever, that's really big into mass warfare. They're highly technological/civilized, so no pustulous swarms of gibbering madness. They swarm in, form battle lines, raze entire continents, entire planets. The stronger the opposition becomes, the stronger they seem to be able to hit back. They've wiped out empires because of this.

The thing that I can't figure out how to do is how to make this effect scale backwards as well. Their mode of thinking doesn't even register individual combat, so while they're individually able to fight back against small bands of attackers, they're usually very bad at it and seem barely even aware of it. But have the attackers form an armada, and they can wipe it out no problem.

How the race ends up looking is up in the air, as they need to be as alien as possible (ie. not humanoid).

Level steal
If a corebvaafnemil hits with a melee touch attack the opponont must make a save (DC 16) or gain 1d3 negative levels. The corebvaafnemil gains the same amount of positive levels*, if the opponent doesn't make it's second save(s) the corebvaafnemil gains a number of wizard levels equal to the number of levels his opponent lost.

Strenght in enemy's numbers
A corebvaafnemil gains a +1 to attack/damage rolls and AC for every ten enemy's in an erea of 3 miles around him, if the enemy leaves this area he loses the bonus gotten by him, but if an enemy dies while in the 3 mile area he keeps the bonus for one day.

No experience
A corebvaafnemil doesn't gain experience

Hivemind
The corebvaafnemil have a single mind with which they are always in contact, this is an Extraordinary ability

*A creature gains the following bonuses for each positive level it has gained:

+1 on all skill checks and ability checks.
+1 on attack rolls and saving throws.
+5 hit points.
+1 effective level (whenever the creature’s level is used in a die roll or calculation, improve it by one for each positive level).
If the victim casts spells, she gains access to one spell as if she hadn't cast her highest-level, currently available spell. (if the creature gains spells she must choose the spell at the time at which she gains the positive level.) In addition, when she next prepares spells or regains spell slots, she gets one additional spell slot at her highest spell level.

May I just say you have far too much time on your hands and that you seem to have made some impressive monsters with that time...

Here's my request:
I am trying to work out an effective tool for a young ambitious and well travelled cleric in Eberron, she wishes to cause mass destruction and chaos by spreading the disease ghoul fever over a large area of farmland surrounding a major lake (Dark lake from Eberron, a nice big lake linked to the plane of Death)

I was thinking some form of mosquitoe swarm (something common and inoffensive that would not be noticed as anything unusual until it was too late) but more agressive capable of spreading the disease without accidentally infecting the cleric and her minions (making it undead would solve this as she has access to some amulets of invisibility to undead)

CR: approx 3 although a couple of levels in either dirrection would be acceptable.

Thanks

I tried to make these guys earlier for kicks and don't think I did very well. If you'd like a crack at them, go ahead. Two monsters: Cryptspawn and Desolate.

Cryptspawn are a form of undead that are very difficult to create, but very powerful. They can only be raised when a mass murderer dies of starvation or dehydration, and the body is left undisturbed for centuries with the soul haunting the area a la Poltergeist. Then a necromancer of like mind binds the soul to the body once more, allowing it to go mobile again yet keeping immense amounts of power. In the storyline, there were only about eight of these things made, but they're still dreaded over three thousand years later...so a CR of 15+ would be appropriate. Heavy telekinetic abilities, including flight and maybe things along the lines of Blade Barrier.

Desolate are shock troopers, effectively. They are created by use of a spell that's normally used to meld two metal bars of the same shape into a single bar of the same shape, but larger. This time, the spell is applied to two zombies and one living person. The result is a partially-undead monstrosity, with enough living essence to be able to learn but not enough to be able to disobey its creator. It is between ogre and giant size, but otherwise is bipedal.

It should also have a Spot bonus but a Listen penalty, a ramming attack, a weaker horn attack, and the ability to curl up into a ball (like a woodlouse) for an AC bonus, although only having slow movement and no attack while curled up.

how about a mount for the nezumis (ratlings, ratfolk, ratmen) of the southern jungles? I can think of nothing. I was thinking maybe medium-sized dire rats (i can make those myself), but i would again like to see if you have anything better for them to ride. They live in swamps.
