Thrall of Orcus

From Sigil - Planar Legends
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Thrall of Orcus has devoted himself to the demon prince of undeath. In his service, she becomes a tool of misery, murder, and revenge. She revels in the company of the undead, preferring their decaying touch to that of living flesh. Thralls of Orcus often work in small groups. These cabals of necromancers and necrophiliacs consort with undead creatures and demons to form small cells of depraved evil hiding amid bustling cities and quiet villages. Thralls of Orcus hate and war against the thralls of Demogorgon and Graz'zt.

Carrion Stench

A Thrall of Orcus, when desired, emits a terrible smell in a 10-foot radius. Living creatures in the radius (excluding the thrall) must succeed a Fortitude save (DC 10 + thrall's class level + thrall's CON modifier) or take a -2 penalty on all attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks for 1 round per class level of the Thrall of Orcus.

Touch of Fear

Three times per day, a 2nd level Thrall of Orcus can produce an effect identical to that of the Cause Fear spell, as cast by a 10th-level caster.

Demon Wings

Once per day, a 5th level Thrall of Orcus can bring forth massive black wings from his back. These wings allow the Thrall to fly at his normal land speed with average maneuverability. The demon wings last for up to 1 hour and are dismissible with a standard action. At 7th level, the Thrall can use his Demon Wings at will and they last as long as needed.

Pallor of Death

A 6th level Thrall of Orcus can adopt the appearance of a humanoid undead creature of her choosing as if she had cast the alter self spell. While in this form, the thrall has an aura of fear (as the fear spell, cast by a 6th level caster) that affects only non-outsiders within 25 feet. Pallor of death lasts for 1 minute per class level and can be used once per day.

Death Touch

An 8th level Thrall of Orcus can force a living creature hit within a touch attack to attempt a Fortitude save (DC 10 + thrall's class level + thrall's CHA bonus). If the target fails its save, it dies.
