Level Adjustment:

In the hand of any other creature but a gloom, the dagger is a +5 keen dagger.

A gloom’s natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.


Fear Gaze (Su): Viewing the gloom’s face inspires terror. Creatures that meet the gloom’s gaze must succeed at a Will save (DC 32) or suffer the effects of a fear spell as cast by a 20th-level caster. The DC is Charisma-based.

Opportunist (Ex): This ability functions like the rogue class feature of the same name.

Sneak Attack (Ex): A gloom is able to sneak attack as a 25th-level rogue, dealing 13d6 extra Damage.

Quiescence (Su): A gloom is constantly silent, as per the silence spell, although the area does not extend beyond the creature itself. This quality gives it a +20 racial bonus on Move Silently checks (it is still possible for a gloom to create noise, such as by bumping into something that scrapes on the floor or by sounding a chime). The gloom can lower this effect at will.

Spell-Like At will—shadow walk; 3/day— true strike. Caster level 20th; save DC 20 + spell level. The DC is Charisma-based.
