Horror Adventures: Kyton Corruption?


Rules Questions


I've did a search here and at Reddit. A similar question was asked when Horror Adventures came out, but there doesn't seem to be any rules like this.

I was wondering if anyone out there knows of any rules to represent the character slowly becoming a Kyton-like being (personally, I've always seen Kytons as the 'Cenobites' from the movie/Book series "Hellraiser").

Officially, the closest thing I have found is the 'Shadowbound' corruption, but that doesn't represent the modification of the flesh that you see with Kytons. There is a 3rd party product that has the 'Voidspawn' corruption, but it comes off more as a chracter devolving to a 'cthulhu' like tentacled monstrosity.

If anybody knows of any such rules, I would appreciate the help (I may try to come up with my own rules for such, but I such at rules modifictions myself).

There is an old 3.0, Malhavoc product by the name of Chaositech that covers body mods, and see this:

Thanks for the reply ^_^

Malhavoc Press was one of my favorite 3rd party producers back in the day, and I have the Chaositech .pdf. I suppose I could modify those rules into a 'corruption' of sorts.

I'm afraid the link you provided give me a 'page not found' error.

Ok, in templates, look for n'gathu.

Well best thing I have from experience is what you already found, the Shadowbound corruption.

You didn't see it fitting, but that is the corruption I used for my players when they came into a situation where there was the danger of turning into a Kyton.

There is the Apostle Kyton template from horror adventures too which references that creatures can gain this template by losing to the Shadowbound corruption.

Another option could be re-flavouring the Promethean corruption, as the flesh needing to be replaced and your body falling apart also sounds pretty Kyton like.


Agan, thanks for the replies, I appreciate it ^_^

@EldonGuyre : Yes, this n'gathu looks like something I could use (maybe even combining it with the 'Mutation' rules from Chaositech ^_^).

Although it shouldn't be too hard to do myself with copy/paste, I do wish one .pdf could be made with all the Kytons created for Pathfinder in one easy to find resource (and I'm also the d20PFSRD has a page with them all as well).

On a not totally unconnected note: For those of us who still love and use those 'Tentacle Faced Brain Eaters', there is a feat tree in "Complete Psionic" called 'Illithid Heritage Feats', which can be turned into a Corruption with a little work (mostly adding 'Stains' to each feat, and making it a full Gift that way).
