Bottomless Stomach (Su)

A bad wolf can spend one use of its mythic power as a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity to swallow an adjacent pinned or helpless non-mythic creature of the same or smaller size, transferring the victim to an extraplanar pocket that can hold up to eight creatures at the same time. The creatures remain helpless and in temporal stasis until released. A bad wolf can cough up a single creature of its choice as a full-round action.

All the creatures are freed if the bad wolf is targeted by the freedom spell or a similar effect, or is reduced to below 0 hit points.

Fey Beast (Ex)

A bad wolf is considered both a magical beast and fey for purpose of effects and abilities. It can travel between the Material Plane and a corresponding Fey World location, though it takes 1d4 hours of passing through forest or another relatively concealed natural environment. A bad wolf can spend 1 use of its mythic power to travel between the Material Plane and The Fey World in three rounds instead.

Part of the Story (Ex)

A bad wolf’s mythic nature prevents people who meet it from perceiving a talking animal that is capable of taking upright posture as anything out of the ordinary. Instead they react as if it was any other stranger met in the forest, making their initial reaction indifferent unless they have reason to be hostile to strangers, or because the bad wolf’s previous or current actions altered their attitude. A bad wolf using surge to augment one of its Bluff, Diplomacy, Disguise, or Intimidate checks can roll twice and pick the better result for the check.


Environment any forest or hills (Fey World)
Organization solitary or pair
Treasure standard

A bad wolf is a cunning and malicious monster that roams haunted forests, crossing the border between the First World and the mortal realms to stalk fey and humanoids alike. While it is a magical wolf, it can assume an upright, if grotesque posture, and it can manipulate objects with its paws as well as any humanoid. It has a taste for flesh of sapient beings, be they fey, mortals, or awakened animals. Occasionally it can enter into a partnership with a hag, oni, or giant.

A Big Bad Wolf (CR 7/MR 3) can be created with the advanced creature simple template and an additional Mythic Rank.
