This creature resembles a putrid yellow skunk with very little fur and whose body is splotched with tiny purple spots. Patches of darker fur are sprinkled about its body.
Witherstench CR 1
Speed 20 ft.
Melee 2 claws +5 (1d4-1)
A witherstench constantly emits a putrid stench that nearly every form of animal life finds offensive. All living creatures (except witherstenches) within 30 feet of a witherstench must succeed on a DC 12 Fortitude save or be nauseated for as long as they remain within 30 feet of the creature. Moving out of the affected area leaves the character sickened for 1 round after which time he recovers immediately. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by the same witherstench’s stench for 24 hours. This is a poison effect.
Environment temperate forests
Organization pack (3-12)
A witherstench (also called skunk beast) is a mutated relative of the common skunk. It is about 4 feet long and weighs around 50 pounds. Its diet consists of carrion, and the creature is always found in areas where such “food” is plentiful.
