[New Monster] Dysnomia

Dysnomia (the lawless spirit)

 

Stork held the strange staff aloft. Forged by the magician-smiths of a forgotten isle, the wizard began plotting the downfall of his foes.

“Going somewhere?” a voice purred softly.

Turning his head sharply, the wizard spied a lithe beauty dressed in a robe of shaggy pelts.

“Just getting even,” Stork growled.

“Need a bit of help?” the woman crooned.

“Absolutely,” the wizard replied with a shark-toothed grin.

A strange, wild-haired woman that appears at the worst of times, the Dysnomia is the embodiment of anarchy, lawlessness and injustice.

An earthbound spirit in the flesh, Dysnomia can, three times per day, cause Amnesia, Confusion, Charm Person, Charm Monster, Dimension Door Mass Charm,Mass Suggestion, and Paralyze as an 8th level magic-user or illusionist respectively. This strange beauty stirs all sorts of anarchy, dismay, and encourages acts of treason and madness wherever she roams as a free agent of strange gods.

Dysnomia may be encountered almost anywhere, her high charisma (consider her CHA 16) opens many doors for her, yet this strange spirit is equally at home in wild and wooly places just the same.

Optional: (suggested by David Grant Sinclair, and it is great) Dysnomia may be a bit cracked because her powers are so chaotic that even she doesn’t know which power she can use next. Consult the chart below:

1d8
1. Amnesia
2. Confusion
3. Charm Person
4. Charm Monster
5. Dimension Door
6. Mass Charm
7. Mass Suggestion
8. Paralyze

Thank you for that superb suggestion!

    I love this monster! But you should randomize her powers so that even this lawless spirit doesn’t know what’s going to happen!

    1d8
    1. Amnesia
    2. Confusion
    3. Charm Person
    4. Charm Monster
    5. Dimension Door
    6. Mass Charm
    7. Mass Suggestion
    8. Paralyze

      That is a great idea, thank you! I made it as an optional way of handling her, I will try your suggestion this weekend!

      That is part of the idea for the blog; these posts encourage others to run with these ideas.
