SPECIAL ABILITIES

Control Wolves (Su)

Amon can control up to 40 HD of wolves, worgs, winter wolves, or dire wolves to a range of 1 mile. This is otherwise similar to a control undead spell cast by a 20th-level sorcerer and does not count against his 40 HD summoning limit (unless Amon summoned the creatures).

Fear Gaze (Su)

A creature that successfully saves against Amon’s fear gaze cannot be affected again for one day. The save DC is Charisma-based.

GEAR

Unique Item: Craver

Amon’s unique oversized weapon Craver is a Huge +4 axiomatic thundering heavy mace.

In Duke Amon’s hands Craver deals double his Strength bonus to damage in addition to its +4 enhancement bonus when he uses it two-handed (+30 total). He is able to use Craver without penalty.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Hell)
Organization solitary or troupe (Amon plus one 18-HD winter wolf, 4–8 bone devils, and 3–7 dire wolves or 5–12 wolves)
Treasure double standard

Amon is a vassal in service to Geryon, commanding no less than 3 legions of bone devils. He is completely loyal to the Great Serpent and never questions his post. On more than one occasion an arch-devil has tried to dupe Amon into betraying his lord, but such attempts always fail. Amon’s iron citadel Harrowcourt sits high on a flat-topped mountain within the domain of Hell’s fifth plane. It is a great, dark place filled with devils, wolves, and creatures far worse.

Amon stands 9 feet tall and weighs about 600 pounds.
