Savage Fetishes (Part 1 of 2)

New magic items for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game that you take directly from your foes’ corpses. ___ As the cheetah studied its prey—an oblivious antelope grazing no more than 50 ft. away—it paid no attention to its own stalker, the young orc warrior Grim-Eye. Only after bringing the frightened animal down did the winded cat realize its predicament, readying itself for another battle. Defeating the cheetah, Grim-Eye took great care in removing...

Trapper’s Bane

“It’s gonna be a good haul this year!” Morant shouted to his partner as he clubbed another seal to death, blood spilling to the snowy ground below. “Yeah, they’re plentiful this…” Morant’s partner’s response became a scream as one of the seals unhinged its jaws and then chomped down on the man’s arm, severing it. Morant stared wide-eyed at the scene and readied his club to smash the creature, which had his partner’s arm dangling out of its...

Monday Monster: Swamp Drake

Steggar stayed behind while his fellow hunters returned to the village. Despite their warnings about the dangers in the swamp, Steggar knew he must return successfully from the hunt or face dishonor from the elders. As he thought about how he’d rather die than return empty-handed, he suddenly found himself knocked off his feet, face first into the shallow water, and then he felt a heavy weight drop on his back. He thrashed about to get himself...

Friday Funny: Krenshar-Pei

The shopkeeper looked at the leopard-spotted dog sitting outside his shop, and he found himself oddly compelled to leave his shop so he could pet the sad-looking animal. The dog sat there while he consoled it and asked it where its owner was. Suddenly, a sharp whistle sounded to his left, and the dog trotted off toward the sound. The shopkeeper watched the animal wistfully before returning to his shop, where he discovered his most expensive...

Monday Monster: Flicker Monkey

In a clearing dominated by an enormous tree, a pair of large monkeys sat lazily on a branch until they noticed three men entering the clearing. They shrieked, and the men, seasoned warriors all, ignored the warning and approached the tree. The monkeys dropped to the ground and ran towards these new foes, who drew their swords and prepared to cut down the aggressive creatures. As the monkeys launched their attack, they flickered in and out of...

Monday Monsters: Candle Drake

Brother Fandrus rubbed his eyes. Scribing books by candlelight took its toll. He stepped outside his cloister to get some fresh air. The sight greeting him when he returned made him gasp: a small dragon with waxy wings contentedly munching on the candle Brother Fandrus had been using. Even more remarkable, the room’s illumination had increased thanks to the light emanating from the dragon’s tail. Candle Drake (CR 1) XP 400 LN Tiny dragon Init...

Monday Monsters: Quick Drake

The hunter carried his prize, a clutch of tiny eggs, through the woods. The wind picked up around him as he walked, and he noted it had a particular bite. Wondering how the temperature could have dropped so quickly, the hunter absently felt his neck. His hand came away slick with blood. Then he felt the wind kick up again—the last thing he would ever feel. As the hunter dropped to the ground, a gray dragon the size of a cat materialized next to...

Monday Monsters: The Crimson Drake

Art by Hugo Solis A crimson drake relishes death and destruction. If this killer can’t surprise its prey, it exploits its similarities to a pseudodragon to fool the unwary. The drake is indistinguishable from its cousin at a distance. Once a victim gets close enough to notice scales the color of dried blood and the murderous gleam in the drake’s eye, the beast viciously attacks with fire, fang, and stinger… Crimson Drake (CR 2) CE Tiny...
