SPECIAL ABILITIES

Project Blame (Su)

When a ghalzarokh misses with a melee attack against a creature, that creature suffers a –1 penalty to AC for 1 round. Whenever a creature succeeds at a saving throw against a ghalzarokh’s spell-like abilities or breath weapon, that creature suffers a –1 penalty on saving throws for 1 round. These penalties can stack up to three times per target, so a creature can take up to a –3 penalty to AC and a –3 penalty on saving throws. At the end of a creature’s turn, it can attempt a DC 25 Will saving throw to reduce one of these penalties by 1 as a free action. This is a mind-affecting curse effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary, pair, or trio
Treasure double

Ghalzarokhs, or tyranny demons, act as commanders of Abyssal forces. These demons are formed from the souls of petty tyrants and would-be dictators. Notoriously egotistical and prone to lashing out, a ghalzarokh keeps its minions in line through fear of its cruel whims.
