Bugul Noz Preview - Creatures of Eira

Rumors have floated around my daughter's game since her first night at an in about the Bugul Noz. Every Fili has at least one song about a foolish noble who went in search of the Fae spirit.  Every forest since has been tread with caution, every snippet of birdsong causing temporary retreat.

This is the thing I love about Celtic/Gaelic/Welsh myth and folklore. The monsters may be real but what they do, how they frighten is so much more than in other parts of the world.

Bugul Noz (Night Shepherd):
Armor Class:         0[20]
Hit Dice: 8
Attacks:  Special see description
Move:    45'
CL/XP:    na

The Bugul Noz, known as the Night Shepherd in some parts of the world, is a hideous Fae spirit of the Otherworld who haunts the deepest forests of Eira his melancholy song an echoing whisper on the forest breeze. While not a malevolent, the sight of the Bugul can cause the looker to become insane (successful save negates).

Despite the dangers of seeing a Bugul Noz, it is often sought out due to its ability to, with complete honesty, answer any one question the seeker most desires. The is aa 1 in 2 chance that the Bugul Noz's song will be heard in any forest.

If attacked the Bugul Noz will immediately vanish with an ear splitting howl.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
