Hatred of Beauty While aghashes hate all mortals, they particularly despise beautiful objects and beautiful or charismatic mortals. When not in physical peril, an aghash is compelled to destroy art and other works of beauty. An aghash can’t enter an area of pristine beauty without first marring it in some way. Given a choice, an aghash attacks a foe with the highest Charisma score first. If barred from doing so by force or some magical effect, they take 1d6 mental damage at the end of their turn.

Cursed Gaze [two-actions] (divine, concentrate, curse, fear, emotion, enchantment, mental, visual) The aghash fixes their gaze on one creature they can see within 20 feet. The creature must attempt a DC 21 Will save.

  • Critical Success The creature is unaffected.
  • Success The creature takes 2d6 mental damage and becomes frightened 1.

  • Critical Failure The creature takes 8d6 mental damage and becomes frightened 2 and stunned 2.

Sandstorm [three-actions] (conjuration, divine, earth) Frequency once per day; Effect The aghash creates a temporary sandstorm in a 30 foot emanation that lasts for 1 minute. Creatures within the emanation take a –4 circumstance penalty to Perception checks and must succeed at a DC 18 Fortitude save. On a failure, they’re forced to hold their breath or else they start suffocating. A creature within the sandstorm at the end of its turn takes 1d6 slashing damage. Divs are immune to all effects of an aghash’s sandstorm.

About

Walking embodiments of curses, misfortune, and the evil eye, aghashes wander the deserts of the Material Plane, searching out the arrogant, charming, and persuasive to humiliate and undermine. Aghashes are often mistaken for some strange form of hag, and like those creatures, they’re masters at curses.

Given that sepids always do the opposite of what they say they will, it might seem difficult for these divs to deceive anyone, which is far from the truth. Often, sepids avoid making statements about their own intentions and instead give orders or speak in analogies, riddles, and anecdotes, allowing those they manipulate to parse out their rationales with clever forms of deception.
