Skeletal Horror - Generic Creatures for Any Setting

A short post today coming after 3 days of little kid birthday party, playing with (or held hostage by) a 2-year-old obsessed with "pomys!" (My Little Pony:FIM).

Anyway! Enjoy the creature folks!

Skeletal Horror

Armor Class: 5 [14]
Hit Dice: 2+2
Attacks: Charge 2d6, Strike 1d6
Special: Charge, Regenerate
Move: 12 [60']
CL/XP: 2/30

Regenerate - Creature regains 2 hit points every two rounds.

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…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

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.
