This strange creature appears as a floating swarm of gemstones surrounding a larger stone that pulses with dim light.
Ioun Wyrd CR 1/3
Speed 0 ft., fly 30 ft. (average)
Melee slam +0 (1d4–3)
Space 2-1/2 ft.; Reach 0 ft.
Ioun Affinity (Su)
An ioun wyrd can integrate a number of ioun stones into its body equal to 1 + half its Hit Dice. Because an ioun wyrd sees all ioun stones as equal and gains no benefits from them, the wyrd’s ioun stones can be swapped out by any creature the wyrd trusts.
A character with an ioun wyrd familiar gains the benefit of the wyrd’s ioun stones as long as the character is within 30 feet of the ioun wyrd.
At first glance, these creatures appear to resemble some manner of earth elementals, but they’re actually bizarre constructs created by spellcasters from certain types of minerals and gemstones. Ioun wyrds are occasionally found in the wild, typically near the haunts of spellcasters and arcane societies where the strange little creatures escaped their former masters.
A typical ioun wyrd is roughly 2 feet in diameter and weighs between 15 and 20 pounds.
An ioun wyrd is made of small gemstones, lodestones, and bits of granite, all coated with 500 gp worth of alchemical materials. A functional ioun stone must also be present at its construction, which the ioun wyrd takes as the first ioun stone to be integrated into its body with its ioun affinity.
CL 5th; Price 1,500 gp plus ioun stone
