[New Monster] Buhura


Navnen returned to the small house the adventurers rented with one arm much longer than the other, an extra eye in his forehead and a fat and swollen tongue lolling out of his head.

Chalk threw his arms up in the air.

‘Don’t you or Valance ever learn?’ the wizard asked.

‘The only thing I dith wrongth was knowing himth,’ the thief lisped heavily as he pointed a long crooked arm at Valance.

‘What did I do now?’ asked the priest of the Spider God.

‘The villageth healer…’ Navnen began.

‘Oh, that,’ Valance said as he started for the rear window to crawl out of.

Suddenly Navnen transformed back into his normal self as a woman walked in.

‘I would like to see those dice you were gambling with last night, spider-priest,’ she said.

Valance began to panic. He knew she was more powerful than she seemed.

The buhura, or “relentless hag” or “curse-throwers” are a strange variant of the female monsters known collectively as “hags” that are far more social and infiltrate small towns and villages. In appearance a buhura looks like an average human female and often take up shop as resident herbalists or natural healers. While Chaotic these creatures actually work well and blend in normally. However, if wronged, beaten, cheated or crossed in any serious way these hags will use every means at their disposal to destroy the one who caused her distress. Once per day these creatures can cast Charm Person, Charm Monster, Clairvoyance and Clairaudience. Five times per day a buhura can cast any Curse and/or Remove Curse. This last spell, when not cast upon a target, is cast upon any and all that will help the buhura find the subject of her ire.
