More information...

The foulest stench is in the air; the funk of forty-thousand years, and grisly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom and though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver. For no mere mortal can resist the evils of the thriller...

Thriller Zombies are exponentially more dangerous than a regular zombie, which makes it proportionally more dangerous due to its ability to get down with it. As they are, Thriller Zombies are some of the most fascinating and underestimated of the undead.

Creating a Thriller Zombie[edit]

"Thriller Zombie" is an inherited template that can be applied only to a biped Zombie.

Armor Class[edit]

A Thriller Zombie gains a Deflection bonus to AC equal to its Perform (Dance) modifier. It loses this if it cannot dance.

Special Attacks[edit]

Thriller (Ex): Treat this as the Fascinate ability of a 20th-level Bard, but it can only be applied to a Perform (Dance) check, and does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

Irresistible Dance (Sp) A Thriller Zombie may use Irresistible Dance as a spell-like ability at will as an immediate action (CL 20). Thriller Zombies are immune to the effects of Irresistible Dance.


Thriller Zombies gain a +10 bonus on all Perform (Dance) checks.


Thriller Zombies gain Skill Focus (Perform [Dance]) Ability Focus (Thriller) and Ability Focus (Irresistible Dance) as bonus feats.
