Bogeyman (Template)

Template Traits

“Bogeyman” is an acquired template that can be added to any corporeal humanoid (referred to hereafter as the “base creature”). The creature retains its humanoid type. It uses all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Challenge Rating: Same as base creature +1.

Defense: The base creature’s natural armor bonus improves by +3.

Special Qualities: A bogeyman retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains the additional special qualities described below.

Death’s Door (Su): A bogeyman appears to die if reduced to –10 hit points. However, unless it is reduced to its negative Constitution score in hit points, its “death” is only temporary; when the bogeyman’s fast healing ability (see below) brings its hit point total to 1 or higher, it springs back to life.

Fast Healing 5 (Su): A bogeyman heals 5 points of damage per round until it is reduced to its negative Constitution score, at which point it dies. This ability does not enable the bogeyman to regrow or reattach severed body parts.

Immunities (Ex): A bogeyman is immune to disease, mind-affecting effects, necromantic effects, paralysis, poison, and sleep. It is not subject to nonlethal damage.

Allegiances: Previous allegiances are lost; Replaced by an allegiance to evil. Changed allegiances might cause the loss of particular class abilities.

Saves: Same as the base creature, modified by new ability scores.

Ability Scores: A bogeyman gains the following ability score increases: Str +2, Con +4. A bogeyman must have a minimum Constitution score of 11.

Languages: A bogeyman rarely speaks, but it can read, write, and understand whatever languages the base creature could.

Feats: A bogeyman gains Great Fortitude and Improved Damage Threshold as bonus feats, assuming that it meets the prerequisites and the base creature did not already have those feats. A human bogeyman keeps the extra feat it gained as a 1st-level human character.

Advancement: By character class.
