Gulguthriana, the Glutton

She who thrives in filth, Gulguthriana is the first of the otyughs. She grants boons of rot and decay to those who recall the greatness that the otyughs once claimed.

Summoning Rules

The following describes the requirements and rituals for binding Gulguthriana.

Spirit Level: 4th
Constellation: Noble
Binding DC: 22
Totems: You gain a totem bonus on the spirit’s binding check if you meet some or all of these conditions.

  • You are of chaotic alignment or are smeared with your own filth.
  • You are suffering from filth fever while performing Gulguthriana’s ceremony.
  • You mix garbage and filth into the meal created as part of the ceremony, which requires DC 22 Fortitude save or you become nauseated for 1 hour and the ritual fails).

Ceremony: You craft a decadent meal enough for three people and begin eating it.
Manifestation: As you dine on the meal, that which you cannot eat quickly rots and decays before you until it molds together into the likeness of an otyugh, which demands that you begin the binding process.

Granted Abilities

Gulguthriana grants the following abilities.

Major Granted Abilities

Gulguthriana’s Greedy Grasp: Your limbs naturally stretch while under Gulguthriana’s influence, allowing you to increase your reach by 5 feet as a swift action for 1 round. After using this ability, it becomes expended for 5 rounds. You must show Gulguthriana’s sign in order to use this granted ability.
Capstone Empowerment: When you use Gulguthriana’s greedy grasp, your reach is increased by 10 feet instead of 5 feet.

Minor Granted Abilities

Gag of Gulguthriana: You gain the constrict special quality. This attack deals damage equal to your unarmed attack plus 1½ times your Strength modifier.
Gargantuan Gulguthriana: You gain Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat and your unarmed strikes deal unarmed damage as a monk equal to ½ your binder level. This benefit stacks with any monk levels you possess, up to your character level.
Gulguthriana’s Grapple: You do not provoke attacks of opportunity when you attempt to grapple an opponent and you do not suffer the -10 penalty to your CMB while trying to grapple an opponent without gaining the grappled condition yourself.
Gluttonous Gullet: You are immune to ingested poisons and gain a +4 bonus on saving throws against effects that cause you to become sickened or nauseated.

Signs and Influence

The spirit affects you in the following ways:

Physical Sign: Your skin takes on a rocky texture and your arms grow six inches in length. Whenever you activate one of Gulguthriana’s granted abilities your body swells to become more ovoid in shape.
Personality: You are constantly hungry, eating whenever possible, and lose all social graces where food is concerned.
Favored Ally: Aberration (Any)
Favored Enemy: Humanoid (elves)

Vestigial Companion
