The Yr’Grrgij are a race from the Outside, that serve the foul gods of that realm and seek to aid them in breaching the barriers into the mortal plane. Tall, emaciated creatures with tentacles shooting from their backs, the Yr’Grrgij have the barest notion of emotion and logic. They are insane and utterly alien to the mortal plane, their touch poisoning and killing the land and animals they come in contact with contact with.

The Yr’Grrgij can cast spells as appropriate for a 6th level arcane caster.

Mind Probe – During a Tentacle Lash attack the Yr’Grrgij may attempt to forcibly access the mind of his target. If successful (save -4), the Yr’Grrgij rips all the targets memories and knowledge from him or her and replaces them with memories of torment in the hellish Outside. No target can survive this and will die on their next turn.

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.
