The creature before you looks like a human with wild, long wild hair. But its hands are skeletal, and it has a malevolent look in its eyes.

A revener is an odd creature, not undead, not quite human. It can be found in underground areas, particularly crypts. It prefers the cover of darkness. It may speak any local languages, but usually has no desire to communicate and will attack without delay.

Using darkness as an aid, a revener will attempt to surprise it foes. It will attack ferociously, but will flee if overmatched.

Sensory Deprivation (Su): When a revener hits a victim, the victim must make a fortitude save vs DC18 (Cha based). Failure indicates the victim permanently loses one sense. Success indicates one sense is temporarily lost for 2d6 rounds. The lost sense may be chosen or randomly determined; subsequent hits always drain different senses. Restoration spells will restore one lost sense per spell.
The effects of sensory loss are below:
Taste: Victim cannot identify tastes (such as potions).
Smell: Victim is immune to vile odour effects, but suffers a - 2 penalty to any spot checks to detect hidden creatures.
Hearing: Victim becomes deaf.
Touch: Victim's Dexterity drops by 4 points and cannot find secret doors.
Sight: Victim is blinded.
Sixth Sense: Victim may not use ESP, crystal balls, telepathy or similar extra-sensory magical effects.

Damage Reduction (Su): A revener has damage reduction 10/magic.
