Draugr Captain (Draugr Rogue 2)

This barnacle-encrusted walking corpse has malevolent, burning red eyes. Its dripping and tattered clothing appears to have at one time been of high quality.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Negative Levels (Su)

Instead of causing nausea with a successful hit as an ordinary draugr does, draugr captains bestow 1 negative level on a hit. A draugr captain can even bestow a negative level via a weapon it wields, but if it gains multiple attacks with a weapon, it can only bestow 1 negative level per round in this manner.

DESCRIPTION

Environment any oceans or coastlines
Organization solitary
Treasure NPC gear (leather armor, masterwork scimitar, other treasure)

While most draugr captains were the masters of their ships in life, exceptions have been known to exist, particularly among lowly crew drudges who derived the most power from their transition to undeath. Such gifted individuals are usually seen by their fellow undead crew members as the rightful captains of the ghost ships they have come to command.

A draugr captain is a draugr with the advanced simple template. In addition to this, most draugr captains have additional class levels, usually as barbarians, fighters, or rogues. Draugr captains can also use obscuring mist as a spell-like ability (CL 5th, concentration +8) three times per day, and instead of causing nausea with a successful hit, they bestow 1 negative level on a hit. A draugr captain can even bestow a negative level via a weapon it wields, but if it gains multiple attacks with a weapon, it can only bestow 1 negative level per round in this manner.
