A charred one resembles a human being that has been burned to a blackened husk. Its glowing-red eyes glitter with hatred and malice. A charred one speaks one language that it knew in life. Its voice sounds like crackling flames. Despite its solid appearance, a charred one has no physi- cal form and can glide through solid objects. It gives off a shimmering, intense heat that can ignite flammable objects it touches.

In combat, a charred one uses its incorporeal touch attack to set opponents afire. Charred One: Lightning Reflexes, Weapon Focus incorporeal touch. Advanced Charred One: Species Traits Fire Subtype: A charred one is immune to fire damage. Heat Su: This heat is usually enough to melt nonmagical teric ingredients.

Each creature in the area takes 5d6 points of acid damage Reflex half and 1d4 points of Constitution damage Forti- tude negates. Chemical Healing Ex: A chemical golem does not heal normally, but it can drink toxic liquids such as acid, poison, or cleaning supplies to heal itself.

The creature heals 1 point of damage per 8 points of download DC that it consumes in toxic chemicals. A chemical golem has no ability to discern which substances can heal it, so its creator must either command it to drink the appropriate chemicals on the spot or provide it with precise commands and a ready supply so that it can heal itself.

A chemical golem gains no benefit from drinking a sub- stance not considered immediately harmful to humans. The consumed liquids mix with the chemicals inside the golem and are destroyed.

A typical specimen measures 20 as a bonus feat. The creature Skill Bonuses: Ordinarily, a Crawfordsville monster is completely SW transparent except for its nucleus, but after absorbing a meal, its body takes on a pinkish-red hue that lasts for several hours. When in distress, a Crawfordsville mon- ster emits a piercing, wheezing noise that can be heard several hundred yards away. Crawfordsville monsters subsist primarily on birds that are attracted to certain pheromones the creatures emit.

In recent years, however, these monsters have become much more aggressive, venturing down to the surface of the earth occasionally in search of humans and other land-based creatures to feed their insatiable appetites.

A Crawfordsville monster feeds by engulfing its prey, then secreting powerful enzymes to dissolve the food into a pinkish jelly. These aerial predators lived an idyllic life until the creation of modern aircraft, which have decimated their populations worldwide. A jet can blast through a Craw- fordsville monster with ease, causing only a ripple of turbulence for those inside the plane. A Crawfordsville monster attacks by slamming with its pseudopods, then attempting to grab and engulf its opponent.

Species Traits Acidic Enzymes Ex: These enzymes continue to dissolve the victim even after the attack, dealing 1d6 points of acid damage each round until the wound is washed with at least 1 pint of water or some other appropriate liquid.

Once it reaches the A dimension-shifted creature is unable to affect anything safety of its own reality, the dimensional horror can focus in the normal world and can pass through nonshifted all its fury on its prisoner.

Reliable reports of such attacks objects harmlessly. The coexistent dimension effectively are understandably rare, but from the few that exist, lacks gravity, so a shifted creature can move about at its researchers postulate that dimensional horrors have some base speed in any direction or orientation it desires.

A dropped object falls at the same horrors have been known to track those they view as per- rate as it would in the normal world and comes to rest on sistent threats up to miles to eliminate them. Species Traits Though the coexistent dimension has no atmosphere as 27 Blindsight Ex: A dimensional horror can ascertain all such, any shifted creature can breathe normally there. These creatures and objects within 30 feet in both the normal world and its own coexistent dimension.

Although a dimensional horror can be blinded and deafened normally, nothing can rob it of its blindsight. To use this ability, the dimen- sional horror must hit a single opponent that is its own size category or smaller with both claw attacks in the same round. If it gets a hold, it automatically deals damage for two claw attacks each round that the hold is maintained, and it can attempt to use its shift dimension ability see below in the same round.

Friends and Foes in the d20 Modern Role- playing Game for more information on the improved grab ability. This ability allows a dimensional horror to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell. See Spe- cial Qualities in Chapter Eight: The dimensional horror may use its scent ability against creatures in the normal world even while it is in its coexistent dimension see below.

Shift Dimension Su: This ability, usable at will, allows the dimensional horror to move from the normal world to a coexistent dimension or back again as a free action.

Any creature in this alternate dimension is invisi- ble and intangible with respect to the normal world. Creatures there cannot see or hear dimensionally shifted creatures; to anyone watching a shift from the normal world, it appears that the DO affected creature simply ceases to exist.

Though it is somewhat awkward to use, this device, called a shift extender, has proven to be highly useful in fighting dimensional horrors. Species Traits A shift extender is a surprisingly small device about the size and shape of a brick, with two nets made of long wires Scent Ex: This ability allows a plesiosaur to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by 29 sense of smell.

When these nets are Friends and Foes in the d20 Modern Roleplaying Game wrapped around a creature or object weighing no more than for details. Both the shift extender and its attachment remain shifted for an extra 2d10 rounds beyond the usual 1- minute duration after release in the coexistent dimension. If the wearer of the device is grappled again by a dimensional horror during this period, the device resets, providing another 2d10 rounds of extra time after the next release.

When the extra time has elapsed, the device and the object or creature to which it is attached return to the normal world. If desired, the wearer can return to the normal world before the time is up by manually shutting off the device. Doing so requires a move action to discon- nect the cables. Military; Weight: Plesiosaurs are intelligent as animals go, and they seem to be highly curious, especially about ships and other waterborne ves- sels. Scientists have speculated that their interest stems from the fact that, at least in silhouette, a boat somewhat resembles the body of a plesiosaur.

Averaging 45 feet long and weighing several thousand pounds, a plesiosaur is only nominally amphibious. Though it can travel out of water for short distances, it does so only with great difficulty because its mass is a hindrance without the added buoyancy of water.

Standing almost 20 feet tall, the tyrannosaur is a biped Feats: Its heavy, tapered skull features Advancement: Its almost vestigial forelimbs seem tiny com- pared to the rest of its bulk. Tyrannosaurs roar primarily at dusk and dawn, when the pterosaurs, and the one that has survived the longest.

When a doom hag dies, its form dissolves into a foul-smelling vapor that forever taints the surrounding landscape.

Drop Bear: Their origin is unknown, but strong evi- dence suggests that they have existed on Earth for millennia. In fact, researchers speculate that the gods, angels, devils, de- mons, and transcended beings described in the histories of many world religions The minor differences between a drop bear and a koala may actually have been elohim. If so, it is likely that these are discernable only to trained naturalists.

Thereafter, it uses its teeth and claws to kings, emperors, angels, or gods. They used humans to play tear at its prey. At some point, however, the elohim were betrayed by one of their own.

In fire form, the elohim can deal an extra 2d6 points of fire damage to an opponent with a successful unarmed attack, though it usually prefers to use its flame sword. Assuming fire form or revert- ing to human form requires a full-round action.

An elohim that is killed or knocked unconscious while in fire form instantly reverts to its human form.
