Death Demonby Andrew Theisen
This raises another question: Should there be an Exalted Level version of the Ostegos?
Here is what I came up with so far for a Gold Box version of the Death Demon:
Death Demon Sphere: Entropy Status: Initiate Power Points: 440 Anti-Magic: 50% Armor Class: 1 Hit Dice*: 17* Hit Points: 85 Move: 90' (30') Flying: 180' (60') Attacks: 2 claws/1 bite Damage: 1d4 each/2d4 No. Appearing: 1 (1d3) Save As: Initiate Morale: Special Call Other: 5% Treasure Type: E Alignment: Chaotic XP Value: ?
Death demons (also known as Ostegos or Night Demons) appear as 10 foot tall, gaunt, hairless humanoids with gray, scaly skin. Ivory fangs protrude from their mouths, and their fingers are tipped with adamantine talons. Their eyes glow like smoldering coals, and two huge bat-like wings grow out of their back.
Death demons attack with their claws and fangs. Any creature struck by their claws must make a saving throw vs. paralysis or be paralyzed for 2d4 turns. Any creature bitten by a death demon must make a saving throw vs. poison at -2 or die.
Death demons have the standard abilities and resistances of other demons, and additionally have the ability to teleport (with no chance for error. They often use Power to create darkness before engaging in combat with their foes.
