Barghest

Edit Page Content

This snarling, canine beast pads forward on all fours, its slender front limbs looking more like hands than a wolf's paws.

Said to be fiendish relations of all Goblinoid races, the hateful barghests come to the Material Plane to feed. As they consume the bodies of innocents, they grow increasingly powerful. A barghest eventually sheds its skin to transform into a Greater Barghest, at which point it often seeks out a tribe of goblins or other creatures to rule.

Special Abilities

Feed (Su) Once per month, a barghest can devour a nonevil humanoid's corpse as a Full-Round Action to gain a growth point. It gains a bonus equal to its growth point total on attack rolls, CMB rolls, Saving Throws, and Skill Checks. Its maximum Hit Points increase by 5 for each growth point it gains. For every 2 growth points, a barghest's Caster Level for its Spell-Like Abilities and its CR increase by +1. When a barghest reaches 4 growth points, it sheds its skin and becomes a Greater Barghest, losing all of its growth points (and bonuses) but gaining the stats presented on this page for a Greater Barghest.
