Each creature in this chapter has a complete entry giving its statistics and description. Anyone who has ever been to a zoo or watched nature programs on television has at least heard about some of the strangest animals on Earth. But the cryptids, xeno- forms, and other strange creatures whose existence the authorities keep secret from the public could fill a zoo the size of Staten Island. Sometimes, humanity runs across such creatures by pure coincidence.
Perhaps the most frightening creatures, though, are the ones that deliberately seek out human contact for dark reasons of their own—particularly the alien races with designs on planetary domination.
They secrete an extremely caustic substance that can eat through flesh and vegetable matter in mere seconds. Seemingly composed of low-density plasma, an acid rainer resembles a gigantic jellyfish. A dozen or more long, trailing tendrils hang beneath its massive, hemi- spherical body. Because its entire form is translucent, the few humans who have actually seen one have been unable to describe it accurately, and most have failed to recognize it as a creature at all.
An acid rainer feeds primarily on birds that it captures with its tentacles. Because of its great size and strength, however, it is quite capable of capturing and swallowing humans or other Medium-size creatures as well.
When an acid rainer dies, its body usually decomposes into harmless air long before it hits the ground. Fortunately for humankind, so few acid rainers exist that contact between the species is rare. Even though advancing tech- nology has made it possible for humans to invade the upper atmosphere more and more frequently, the translucent bodies of acid rainers make them difficult to spot.
Most verifiable encounters have occurred at lower altitudes, either on very high mountaintops, or when turbulence in the upper atmosphere such as a windstorm has forced the creatures closer to the ground. During particularly stormy 13 weather, suspected encounters have oc- curred at elevations as low as the Smokey Mountains of North America.
Such encounters are sporadic, however, since acid rainers have no more desire to stay at low altitudes than humankind has to keep them there. In combat, an acid rainer attacks with its ten- tacles, attempting to grab its opponent and haul LF it into the mouth situated in the underside of its crown. If pressed by a large group of opponents, the creature uses its acid spray ability.

As an attack action, an alien probe can base. The technique is quite similar to those that human produce an extremely bright, blue-white light in a foot hunters and trappers once used to convey information— cone.
This light is not so much an attack form as a side effect marking trees and stones to tell others of the means by which the creature gathers data. Neverthe- less, exposure to the effect can cause mild dis- comfort or even harm to carbon-based life forms.
A creature that fails the saving throw by 5 or more is also para- lyzed until removed from the area.
A creature that fails the save by 10 or more experiences such severe swelling of the flesh that it is blinded as well as paralyzed.

Once a single swallowed creature mobile person, but the giant anaconda is another matter. A Huge giant ana- size of a rowboat. Tiny, or Diminutive or smaller opponents. A giant anaconda can devour an alligator as swiftly as a common anaconda can swallow a mouse. Sightings of these monsters are thankfully rare, though human disappearances are common in and around the swamps where they dwell. Species Traits Constrict Ex: Improved Grab Ex: To use this ability, the giant anaconda must hit an oppo- nent at least one size category smaller than itself with either a bite or a tail slap attack.
If it KM gets a hold, it automatically deals bite or tail slap damage each round that the hold is maintained, and it can con- strict in the same round and attempt to swallow in the next round.
If the giant anaconda wishes, it can continue to attack with its tail or its bite not both while it grapples with its body, but it takes a —20 penalty on all grapple checks if it does so. Animated objects typically make excel- lent sentries, since they never need to eat or sleep.
An animated object resembles whatever it was before animation—a candlestick, weapon, vehicle, house, man- nequin, or any other object. However, its form has a certain fluidity and may appear bendable. An animated object attacks by slamming opponents with any appendages it possesses.
Species Traits Blind Ex: A sheetlike animated object such as a carpet or a drape can use this ability against an opponent up to three size categories larger than itself. The animated object makes a normal grapple check. The blinded creature cannot make Search, Spot, or Survival checks to track, and it takes a —6 circumstance penalty on all other checks related to perception such as Listen. Constrict Ex: A flexible animated object such as a rope or chain deals automatic slam damage with a successful grapple check against a target up to one size category larger than itself.
A Large or larger animated object flexible or not can make constrict attacks against multiple creatures at once. Each of the targets of such an attack must be at least two size categories smaller than the animated object and able to fit underneath it.

A bodak ignores the first 15 points of damage dealt by any nonmagical weapon. Death Gaze Su: Electricity Immunity Ex: A bodak is immune to electricity damage. Flashbacks Ex: Occasionally, a bodak sees something that reminds it of its past life. When such a flash- back occurs, the bodak takes no actions for 1 round, though it can defend itself normally.
Thereafter, it takes a —2 morale DO penalty on all attack rolls directed at that opponent for the remainder of the combat. A bodak does not speak, but it can read, write, and understand Fraal.

A bogeyman heals 5 points of Con —, Int 6, Wis 12, Cha This ability does not 19 enable the bogeyman to regrow or reattach severed body parts. Despite the fanciful nature of such tales, the bogeyman is decidedly real.
A grim, purposeful figure bent on punishing the wicked, this creature haunts the dark woods and back alleys where people gather to pursue illicit activities. When they have completed their lascivious and immoral acts, the bogeyman emerges from hiding to slaughter them, one by one, in a gruesome and horrible fashion. The creature usu- ally leaves the lifeless bodies of its victims grotesquely dis- played to warn others that a similar fate awaits them.
Most terrifying is the fact that a bogeyman is extremely difficult to kill. Such creatures have been known to survive explo- sions, electrocution, immersion in freezing water, and even baths in hydrochloric acid.
A bogeyman begins life as a humanoid that feels a cer- tain moral superiority over others. At some point, it becomes consumed with a kind of diabolical might that enables it to exact righteous vengeance according to its own twisted agenda.
A bogeyman most often seeks out underage drinkers, recreational drug users, or people who engage in premarital sex for victims. A bogeyman looks the same as it did when it was a normal humanoid, except for a maniacal gleam in its eyes. Some bogeymen affect unusual clothing, masks, or other accoutrements in keeping with their combat style and need for anonymity.
A bogeyman attacks with slashing weapons and is fear- less in combat. No threat to its life holds it back from its self-appointed, grisly tasks. A bogeyman is immune to disease, pounds.

A charred one exists only to burn the living and exact revenge on those it holds responsible for its death. A charred one resembles a human being that has been burned to a blackened husk. Its glowing-red eyes glitter with hatred and malice.
A charred one speaks one language that it knew in life. Its voice sounds like crackling flames. Despite its solid appearance, a charred one has no physi- cal form and can glide through solid objects.
It gives off a shimmering, intense heat that can ignite flammable objects it touches. In combat, a charred one uses its incorporeal touch attack to set opponents afire. Charred One: Lightning Reflexes, Weapon Focus incorporeal touch. Advanced Charred One: Species Traits Fire Subtype: A charred one is immune to fire damage. Heat Su: This heat is usually enough to melt nonmagical teric ingredients.
Flammable items, such as irrevocably insane, but whether that result stems from the clothing, wood, or paper, are automatically ignited by the mind-bending complexity of the work or the constant touch of a charred one see Catching on Fire, page in the CREATURES.

Species Traits Berserk Ex: When the uncontrolled golem goes on a rampage, it attacks the nearest living creature. It no creature is within reach, it smashes some object smaller than itself, then moves on to spread more destruction.
Once the golem goes berserk, no known method can reestablish control. Breath Weapon Ex: Once every 1d4 rounds, a chemical golem can breathe a foot cone of acid and toxic fumes. Each creature in the area takes 5d6 points of acid damage Reflex half and 1d4 points of Constitution damage Forti- tude negates. Chemical Healing Ex: A chemical golem does not heal normally, but it can drink toxic liquids such as acid, poison, or cleaning supplies to heal itself.
The creature heals 1 point of damage per 8 points of Purchase DC that it consumes in toxic chemicals. A chemical golem has no ability to discern which substances can heal it, so its creator must either command it to drink the appropriate chemicals on the spot or provide it with precise commands and a ready supply so that it can heal itself. A chemical golem gains no benefit from drinking a sub- stance not considered immediately harmful to humans.
The consumed liquids mix with the chemicals inside the golem and are destroyed. A chemical golem has the traits and immunities common to constructs.

The creature Skill Bonuses: Ordinarily, a Crawfordsville monster is completely SW transparent except for its nucleus, but after absorbing a meal, its body takes on a pinkish-red hue that lasts for several hours.
When in distress, a Crawfordsville mon- ster emits a piercing, wheezing noise that can be heard several hundred yards away. Crawfordsville monsters subsist primarily on birds that are attracted to certain pheromones the creatures emit. In recent years, however, these monsters have become much more aggressive, venturing down to the surface of the earth occasionally in search of humans and other land-based creatures to feed their insatiable appetites.
A Crawfordsville monster feeds by engulfing its prey, then secreting powerful enzymes to dissolve the food into a pinkish jelly. These aerial predators lived an idyllic life until the creation of modern aircraft, which have decimated their populations worldwide. A jet can blast through a Craw- fordsville monster with ease, causing only a ripple of turbulence for those inside the plane. A Crawfordsville monster attacks by slamming with its pseudopods, then attempting to grab and engulf its opponent.
Species Traits Acidic Enzymes Ex: These enzymes continue to dissolve the victim even after the attack, dealing 1d6 points of acid damage each round until the wound is washed with at least 1 pint of water or some other appropriate liquid.

Though it is somewhat awkward to use, this device, called a shift extender, has proven to be highly useful in fighting dimensional horrors.
Species Traits A shift extender is a surprisingly small device about the size and shape of a brick, with two nets made of long wires Scent Ex: This ability allows a plesiosaur to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by 29 sense of smell.

Both the shift extender and its attachment remain shifted for an extra 2d10 rounds beyond the usual 1- minute duration after release in the coexistent dimension. If the wearer of the device is grappled again by a dimensional horror during this period, the device resets, providing another 2d10 rounds of extra time after the next release. When the extra time has elapsed, the device and the object or creature to which it is attached return to the normal world. If desired, the wearer can return to the normal world before the time is up by manually shutting off the device.
Doing so requires a move action to discon- nect the cables. Military; Weight: Plesiosaurs are intelligent as animals go, and they seem to be highly curious, especially about ships and other waterborne ves- sels.
Scientists have speculated that their interest stems from the fact that, at least in silhouette, a boat somewhat resembles the body of a plesiosaur. Averaging 45 feet long and weighing several thousand pounds, a plesiosaur is only nominally amphibious.
Though it can travel out of water for short distances, it does so only with great difficulty because its mass is a hindrance without the added buoyancy of water.

Copy Link Tweet This. Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition.
Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.
The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.
For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book.
Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
