SPECIAL ABILITIES

Disintegration Beam (Su)

The damage inflicted by a Soulless destroyer’s energy beam is of no particular energy type. Any creature slain by this beam is completely disintegrated along with all its gear. If the Soulless destroyer is slain, the cluster of stone that serves as its ‘head’ can be recovered and used as a single shot ranged weapon for up to 3 rounds after the creature’s demise. The flame sphere fades away after this time.

Resolute Immobility (Su)

A Soulless destroyer cannot be moved if the creature does not wish to be. It is immune to any combat maneuver that would change its position, and is immune to spell effects that would move it against its will, such as teleport or baleful teleport.

Slow and Steady Speed (Ex)

A Soulless destroyer’s speed is never reduced by armor nor by encumbrance.

Vorpal Vulnerability (Ex)

While most elementals are immune to the effects of vorpal weapons, the Souless Destroyer can be beheaded and slain with a vorpal weapon or similar effect.

ECOLOGY

Environment any extraplanar, especially common on the Astral Plane
Organization solitary or hordes of up to 4d6
Treasure incidental

Soulless destroyers spontaneously generate near dimensional interfaces. The best guess about their existence is that these mindlessly violent beings are a natural sort of ‘antibody’ for the multiverse, keeping containments from one plane from infecting other planes. Soulless destroyers annihilate anything they come in contact with, and since they lurk at dimensional crossroads and near planar gates, the sheer threat of the creatures keeps the planes isolated.

Despite their fearsome natures, Soulless destroyers rarely pursue prey more than a few hundred meters from their lair.

If a planes-traveler can survive their initial, horrible assault, they are likely safe from farther attacks. The creatures have only two states. Either there are completely inert, or they explode into a storm of violence, pounding away with their fists and firing their disintegration beam wildly.

Soulless destroyers resemble stony gorillas hewn from ebony and granite. A ball of red flames, the source of their disintegration beams, floats within their maw. They do not and cannot speak.
