[New Monster] Hag, Gaunt

Hag, Gaunt

The worn and weary adventurers returned to the town, down three of their number. One of them stopped as they passed a sign and retrieved a dagger from his belt.

The sign now said: Never split your party.

Sometimes known as the Least or Riding Hag, these creatures resemble tall, thin elderly women bearing brooms. They haunt abandoned buildings on the edges of towns and villages, waiting for their prey. These creatures often hunt groups of adventurers or other travelers to take advantage of those who wander off. These creature may cast Charm and Suggestion twice per day, which they use to make a subject stand still, then they climb up on their victim’s shoulders and use their brooms like oars, casting their own version of the Fly spell. This spell can last for an hour or throughout the night, the hag and her victim traveling at a speed of up to 180′. The sight of this looks like the hag is sitting upon the shoulders of the victim as he or she runs through the air. Each hour of flight takes one point from the victim’s Constitution temporarily, regained at 2 points per day after that. In addition the gaunt hag may cast Shocking Hands, Arcane Lock and Gust of Wind at will as spell-like abilities.
