SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dominate Monster (Su)

A taskmaster formian can dominate the minds of up to four creatures at one time. This acts as the dominate monster spell (DC 17). If the target saves against this ability they are immune to the taskmaster’s power for 24 hours. This power can only affect creatures with a challenge rating of 2 levels less than the taskmaster formian. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Poison (Ex)

Sting—injury; save Fort DC 17; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Str damage; cure 1 save. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Organization solitary (1 plus dominated creature), conscription team (2-4 plus dominated creatures)
Treasure standard

Taskmasters look like warriors except they have four thick, dark brown bands that encircle their torso. Taskmasters can ensnare the minds of lesser creatures and bend them to their wills. Enslaved creatures are always well fed and not carelessly endangered. When a creature has served the hive for a period of one month and a day, they will be released from domination outside of the hive.
