Instill Phobia (Su)

A creature swallowed by a qolok for 2 or more rounds must succeed at a DC 26 Will save or gain a phobia. The subject of the affected creature’s phobia is a commonplace creature, object, or situation the target encountered in the last 24 hours (GM’s discretion). The save DC is Charisma-based and includes the +2 bonus from the qolok’s emotional focus ability.

Look of Fear (Su)

A creature affected by a qolok’s gaze is panicked for 1d6 rounds and shaken for 1 minute thereafter, or shaken for 1 minute on a successful save. A qolok gains a number of temporary hit points equal to the number of rounds the target is panicked, which stack with each other to a maximum equal to double the qolok’s number of HD.

Tongue (Ex)

A qolok’s tongue attack is a primary natural weapon that deals slashing and bludgeoning damage.


Environment any (Ethereal Plane)
Organization solitary or terror (2–6)
Treasure standard

Qoloks prey on the fear of not having enough, urging mortals to overindulge in every way possible.
