Cough (Su)

As a standard action, a nucol can bellow out a contagious cough. This cough can take one of two forms: a ranged touch attack consisting of a wad of infectious phlegm with a range of 30 feet, or a spray of snot and spit that can affect creatures in a 15-foot cone. Creatures subject to the cone effect can avoid the effects of the cough with a successful DC 15 Reflex save. All creatures affected by either form of the cough must succeed at a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract nervous consumption. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

Look of Fear (Su)

A creature affected by a nucol’s gaze is shaken for 1d2 rounds.

Nervous Consumption (Su)

Injury or contact—gore or cough; save Fort DC 15; onset immediate; frequency 1/day; effect 1 point of Wisdom damage. As long as a creature suffering from this illness suffers any Wisdom damage from any source, it takes a –1 penalty to its Armor Class and on ability checks and skill checks. This is a disease effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.


Environment any (Ethereal Plane)
Organization solitary, pair, or sounder (3–12)
Treasure incidental

Nucols are sahkils that delight in spreading the fear of parasites and other unseen things that can pollute the body and cause sickness. They spread a disease that weakens their victims’ will and amplifies feelings of doubt and inadequacy.

Nucols often use their remove disease spell-like ability to bargain with their victims, agreeing to cure them in return for a favor. The sahkil legitimately heals the victim of its affliction, but the price for doing so often outweighs the value of the curative.

A nucol is over 4 feet long and weighs 90 pounds.
