Sickening Display [one-action] (concentrate, emotion, enchantment, fear, mental, occult, visual) The cythnigot presents its awful appearance fully, and creatures in a 10-foot emanation must attempt a DC 17 Will save. Once a creature attempts this save, it’s temporarily immune to further Sickening Displays for 1 minute.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected.

Failure The creature is sickened 1, and is flat-footed for as long as it’s sickened.

Critical Failure The creature is sickened 2 and is flat-footed for as long as it’s sickened.

Tangle Spores (disease) A creature bitten by a cythnigot becomes afflicted by fast-growing spores that swiftly grow into twitching spikes and hideous pallid growths of hairlike fibers. These growths erupt from the bite wound and writhe and wrap around the creature’s limbs. Plant creatures take a -2 circumstance penalty to save against tangle spores; Saving Throw DC 17 Fortitude; Maximum Duration 6 rounds; Stage 1 clumsy 1 (1 round); Stage 2 clumsy 1 and flat-footed (1 round); Stage 3 clumsy 2, flat-footed, and if you attempt a manipulate action, you must succeed at a DC 5 flat check or it’s lost; roll the check after spending the action, but before any effects are applied (1 round).


The cythnigot is a foul fungal parasite that grows and thrives in the corpses of small creatures. It wears these bodies like a suit, but also adjusts and tailors the fleshy covering to suit its needs, and the body ends up looking as alien as anything else spawned from the Abyssal depths. The cythnigot’s most identifying feature is the long stalk of fungal material that extends from creature’s body, ending in a surprisingly strong set of fanged jaws.
