Confusing Display [two-actions] (concentrate, emotion, enchantment, fear, incapacitation, mental, occult, visual) The augnagar’s writhing limbs and flesh seethe and squirm in a disorienting and unsettling manner. Creatures in a 30-foot emanation must attempt a DC 34 Will save, after which they are temporarily immune to further Confusing Displays for 1 minute.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected.

Success The creature is stupefied 1 for 1 round.

Failure The creature is stupefied 1 and confused for 1 minute.

Critical Failure As failure, but the creature can’t attempt a flat check to recover from confusion whenever it takes damage from an attack or spell.

Inhale Vitality [two-actions] (necromancy, occult) Frequency once per day; Effect The augnagar inhales sharply, drawing life force out of creatures in a 50-foot cone. Creatures in the area take 14d6 negative damage (DC 34 basic Fortitude save, and the creature is fatigued on a failure). The augnagar becomes quickened for 1 round on its next turn, and it can use the extra action only to Stride or Strike.

Rotting Curse (curse, disease, necromancy, occult) Saving Throw DC 34 Fortitude; Stage 1 drained 1 (1 day); Stage 2 drained 2 and the creature displays hideous, festering wounds exuding a horrific stench. Any creature within 30 feet of the victim must succeed at a DC 34 Fortitude save or become sickened +1 (plus slowed 1 on a critical failure, for as long as it’s sickened). While within the aura, affected creatures take a -2 circumstance penalty to saves against disease and to recover from the sickened condition. A creature that succeeds at its save is temporarily immune for 1 minute. The victim of the disease doesn’t roll a save, but takes the failure effects automatically and can’t reduce its sickened value below 1 (1 day).

About

The brutish and gluttonous augnagar live to feast- preferably on rotten flesh, and when possible, demon flesh. But to them, the greatest delicacy is the flesh of other augnagars. Augnagars have spiderlike legs with leathery membranes like a bat’s wings, and three tails ending in hooked claws perfect for slicing flesh.

An augnagar that gorges sufficiently, especially on other augnagars, can grow so massive it can’t even move, thrashing and festering where it lies. It eventually flies into a frenzy of self-cannibalism as it rips apart its own flesh to feast on. From the ruinous remains emerges a thulgant-a smaller but more powerful qlippoth. Scholars are uncertain if other qlippoth are capable of transforming themselves in this fashion. So far, none have returned from the Abyss with proof.
