[New Monster] Ghosts of the Clergy of the Dead Sea God

Ghosts of the Clergy of the Dead Sea God

The ominous clicking unnerved the group of adventurers as they delved into the ruined seaside temple.

‘Are you sure there is gold here?’ the thief asked.

‘This is what I was told in confidence by a great bard,’ replied the minstrel.

The chittering sound grew louder as the fighter grew more anxious.

The little pinches and bites were annoying and then the party saw what had attacked them, the fighter broke and ran.

‘I hope you can heal,’ the thief told the cleric. He turned to the minstrel.

‘And there had better be gold here.’

As the crab-like creatures became more solid creatures and heightened their attack the adventurers never found out.

Just outside of our reality in coastal towns they lurk, the lost souls that were the priests and priestesses of the fallen sea god, Marsalin. As the deity failed he grasped desperately to life he drained the life from his devoted clerics, twisting and transforming them. Now their souls creep and scuttle like demented crabs, pitiful beings, half a foot in diameter that claw and nip at the living, trying to gain solidity again. In combat these hideous beings may only be struck by silver or magical weapons of at least +1 ability as they pinch and bite, every three points of damage drain a target of one point of Constitution (regained at one point a day by survivors) which makes these creatures solid again. After three rounds of combat/Constitution drain these pitiful creatures become corporeal and then deal 1d4+2 points of damage.
