Duskers are goblin-like constructs created by the Immortal Hierarch of Entropy, Nyx, to guard the maze entrance from the Tower of Night on the world of Chasm into the Isle of Night. Giant duskers are largest and most powerful version of the normal dusker. They are usually about the size of an ogre.
When destroyed, duskers disappear with a popping sound.

Duskers always will start combat by using its gaze attack on the character that appears to be the greatest threat. They will then close into melee combat. Duskers are always proficient with the weapon they are created with (and will have Weapon Focus with it as well).

Damage Reduction (Su): A giant dusker has damage reduction 10/magic.
Spell Immunity (Ex): A giant dusker is immune to all first and second level spells.
