I like the Ecorche. Really nasty undead. That rips your skin off and wears it. But, I have a question about its signature ability:
Seize Skin (Su) Whenever an ecorche damages a target with its rend ability, the target must succeed at a DC 25 Fortitude save to resist being skinned alive. Those who fail the save become staggered and take 1 point of Constitution drain per round. Both of these effects are permanent but can be removed with a regenerate or heal spell (or 1 round of regeneration). The ecorche can use its wear skin ability to don a skin stolen in this way as a full-round action. The save DC is Dexterity-based.
My question is that, after that ability is used, is the victim still wearing their gear (like that tablecloth trick where you pull it out from under the stuff on top without moving it), or are they truly stripped naked of anything above their muscles?
RAW, I believe only the skin is taken. It is a supernatural ability, after all. RAI, and by my ruling if a I was running, the victim would drops their gear. Or more accurately, the Ecorche would shake out the skin like a blanket.
