“Plagued beast” is an acquired template that can be added to a living, corporeal creature with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2. A plagued beast uses all of the creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.
Challenge Rating: Base creature’s CR + 1.
Alignment: Neutral evil.
Armor Class: Increase the base creature’s AC by 2.
Melee: A plagued beast gains a bite attack that deals damage based on the plagued beast’s size. If the beast already has a bite attack, the bite’s damage increases by one step, as if it had increased one size category.
Ability Scores: +4 Strength, +2 Dexterity. A plagued beast has a minimum Charisma score of 15—if the base creature’s Charisma score is lower, increase it to 15. A plagued beast has no Constitution score; as an undead, it uses its Charisma when calculating its hit points, Fortitude saves, and any special abilities that rely on Constitution.
Feats: A plagued beast gains Toughness as a bonus feat.
