Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk) starts a 5-part arc of jungle-based monsters.

I wanted to give a more detailed sampling of content, so here's what's in it:

9 Monsters:

  • Giant mosquito
  • Mosquito Swarm
  • Mosquitofolk, Hollow (undead bloodbag)
  • Mosquitofolk, Blood Jumper (fast attacker, hit and run tactics)
  • Mosquitofolk, Secret Sting (sneaky with a nasty poison)
  • Mosquitofolk, Blood Blade (armed killer, see below)
  • Mosquitofolk, Cage Glider (giant, creepy slaver)
  • Mosquitofolk, Swarm Spewer (spits out and controls mosquito swarms)
  • Mosquitofolk, Wound Mage (vile mastermind and blood master)
  • Ecology, encounter groups, lore, and more--complete with the wonderful illustrations of Ashton Sperry

(Monsters span CR 1-10)

5 Alchemical Items:

  • Blood Lure
  • Gag Grass
  • Haze Frond Torch
  • Reek Sap
  • Stonefall Seeds

Blood Meal Mini-Adventure:

  • A cliffside lair, gorgeously mapped by Liz "Lilith" Courts (a keyed version and an unkeyed version) [We've already gotten several compliments on Liz's awesome lair map!]
  • 3 simple scenarios with multiple encounters using the lair, usable as sidetreks to insert into your campaign (for 4th, 8th, and 12 th levels)
  • Hooks to incorporate the mosqitofolk into your campaign, tips on taking PCs as prisoners, and more

And here's a sample mosquitofolk:

Mosquitofolk, Blood Blade CR 7

This sleek mosquitofolk moves with a sinuous grace that makes the slightly curved, doublebladed spear it holds in its hands seem almost a
part of it.

TACTICS
Before Combat Blood blades charge into combat.

During Combat A stalwart combatant, a blood blade relishes facing opponents head on and despises enemies who try to get around it. It prefers to use its spear in melee and only employs its bite attack when hoping to drain blood.

Morale Mosquitofolk fight to the death against living foes possessing blood or in defense of their nest. Otherwise, they attempt to flee immediately.

Nice review end.


I think you'd enjoy that one, too, D_M.

Cheliax

that stat block looks off. Doesn't it need imp twf for the second off hand attack, and the feat to do full str with off hand attacks?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Agreed. Statblock is definitely wonky.

9 hitdice for monstrous humanoid makes for 9 BAB.
Strength of 20 yields +5 attack.
Double spear: custom double weapon, counts as 1-handed + 1-handed (light) for the purpose of determining attack penalties, bonuses. 1d8 damage.
Double spear is a masterwork weapon: +1 attack.
Two-Weapon Fighting (penalties for using double weapon: -2/-2).
It appears to be unable to use bite in the same sequence as the spear.

Single attack: mwk double spear +15 (1d8+5) or bite
Full attack sequence: primary/primary/offhand or bite
mwk double spear +13/+8 (1d8+5) and +13 (18+2) or bite

Regards,
Ruemere

PS. Skipping calculation for bite attack.

Single attack would do d8+7. It can 2 hand the spear.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Double weapons can be wielded singlehandedly. Since double spear is not part of PRD, I assumed standard attack with primary hand.

I just don't see the reason you wouldn't want the 2 free damage.

Too-may-toes too-mah-toes I guess
