SPECIAL ABILITIES

Animated Shield (Su)

An ahmuuth’s gravestones defend the it in a manner similar to an animated shield but without a limited duration. If the stones leave the psychopomp‘s square or the ahmuuth is slain, they become inert stone.

Death’s Dagger (Su)

An ahmuuth’s dagger is treated as a +1 returning undeadbane dagger. It loses this ability if it is held by anyone other than the ahmuuth, and regains it once returned.

Ectoplasmic Focus (Su)

An ahmuuth’s spells and spell-like abilities have their full effect against incorporeal or ethereal creatures.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or inquisition (3–8)
Treasure standard

An ahmuuth is responsible for helping mortals destroy undead and dispatch renegade souls evading the goddess’s judgment. Unlike morrigna psychopomps, who hunt lost or corrupted souls on their own, ahmuuths work with mortal worshipers and try to usher creatures like ghosts to peaceable final ends—when they can. When they can’t, they have no qualms about forcing wayward spirits to face their goddess’s judgment. An ahmuuth looks like a humanoid wearing an owl mask, and is always accompanied by floating gravestone shards that act as a shield. Like owls, ahmuuths are silent stalkers, revealing themselves only at the moment of attack. Ahmuuths stand just over 6 feet tall and weigh approximately 150 pounds.
