Abyssal stalker (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Abyssal stalkers are little more than animalistic predators, seeking prey. Occasionally they will serve a much greater demon until strong enough to escape.

Physical Description[edit]

Abyssal Stalkers have black leathery skin, pure white eyes, and a hunched, almost quadruped back. They have foot long claws and razor sharp teeth.


Abyssal Stalkers will occasionally team with other creatures if it views them powerful, but otherwise are lone hunters.


Almost exclusively Chaotic Evil.


Abyssal Stalkers, fittingly enough, hail from the Abyss. However, they can be found in any nether planes, and occasionally will Plane Shift into other areas in search of prey.


Abyssal Stalkers usually worship demon lords, if at all religious.


Usually Abyssal Stalkers speak Abyssal and poor, raspy Common (enough to terrify their prey).


Usually none, but occasionally will be named by those controlling them.

  • Powerful Build: Whenever an Abyssal Stalker is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the Abyssal Stalker is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A Abyssal Stalker is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature's special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A Abyssal Stalker can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject's size category.
