Flesh Stalker

By:

“Check the right flank, it seems to be weakening. be damned for their commander. I knew of Convius when I was fighting my way up to this position. It grieves me to say this, send in a stalker. Without him standing among his legions they will fall on our flank.

it grieves me that after today, I will not pit myself against him in battle one last time.”

Legatus Suuhai - Commander of the Minotaur Armies of the Blades - The Demon Wars

Full Description
A flesh stalker is a member of the Fel'Krethsh, or slave caste. However, they have been elevated higher among their fellow slaves because of their faithful service to the nobles. They have a bloodlust that matches that of the greediest Ba'craht. They are occasionally sent out to deal with difficult enemies, and are usually deep with numbers.

They are humanoid shape with two arms and two legs; however, their body has many protrusions growing from their body. They wear no clothing or armor and can wield no weapons as they have no hands. These protrusions are hard and can be used to impale their victims but grappling with them. Their arms have sharp spear like ends in place of hands that drip a narcotic drug that paralyzes their victims in moments. Anything being struck by this must make a check suitable to the game system against a poison or fall to the ground unable to move for hours. If the victim survives the attack after being paralyzed they must make three checks or they will gain an addictive reaction to the poison and need something to replace it. Drug addiction usually follows.

Additional Information
They are often used to hunt down single victims for their masters. Often members of an enemies ranking military or leaders. If a Flesh Stalker is not expected, then nothing can stop it from entering an area unnoticed to seek out its mission. They do so willingly and with great pleasure knowing they are pleasing their masters, but at the same time satisfying their blood lust. Such is the way for a violent addicted demon.

An interesting creature, I especially like the concept of their venom being addictive, it opens up some nasty adventure possibilities. I do get the feeling this sub is only partially finished however and leaves me with a fewquestions.

-"If a Flesh Stalker is not expected, then nothing can stop it from entering an area unnoticed to seek out its mission." 

How exactly does it go unnoticed? Does it have some sort of magical invisibility, teleporting, or a chameleon ability that lets it slip through the ranks? (Or can it perhaps use the protrusions to burrow through the ground and erupt under the enemies feet?)

Some more details into these creatures origins, (were they human slaves or lesser demons?) and covering how they earn such a loyalty would perhaps round out this piece and give a sense of completeness. (A few plot hooks could be nice as well)

I really liked this one.

 

Have you, just for yourself as a GM, worked on the mind set of demon yet?

Visions of Secret Plants Dance in Your Head

       By: rickster

You receive a vision of a rooftop "somewhere close by", where a rare moss grows; in the vision, you know the moss is suitable for greatly enhancing the effects of certain types of potions. Now go and find that rooftop. Don't fall off. (Of course, rooftop runners *will* be taken for miscreants by the local City Watch....)
