      Upon entering the throne room a trio of dirty, red-eyed satyrs begin playing their pipes while cavorting in the shadows around the room.
      A dozen fire beetles stand motionless in the room.
      Two laughing cyclopes sitting in a throne for a much bigger creature unleash a bizarre creature and finish drinking their beers.
      Standing next to the throne is a one-eyed tengu wearing some sort of silvery armor he wields an odd looking three-bladed dagger, smiling, he approaches.
      A heavily scarred man wearing a cage on his head screams manically and breaks the chain holding him against the wall, he charges the nearest half-melnibonean.

      Feats Alertness, Endurance
      Skills Climb +20, Perception +1
       SPECIAL ABILITIES
      Blindsight (Ex): A cave creature can discern objects and creatures within 60 feet regardless of concealment. It usually does not need to make Perception checks to notice creatures within range of its blindsight. A silence spell negates this ability and forces the cave creature to rely on the base creature's senses.
      Cheek Pouch (Ex)
      A giant hamster can try to stuff a grabbed opponent of two sizes smaller than itself into its cheek pouch by making a successful grapple check. A creature may escape by succeeding at a DC 16 Strength check or by cutting its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon (AC 11, 10 hp). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another trapped opponent must cut its own way out.
      A Large hamster's cheek can hold 1 Small, 2 Tiny, or 8 Diminutive or smaller opponents. The check DC is Strength-based.
      Grab (Ex)
      A giant hamster may attempt to start a grapple as a free action with a successful bite attack.  If it win the grapple check, it establishes a hold and deals bite damage each round. Alternately, it can stuff a grappled foe of two or more sizes smaller than itself into its cheek pouch on its next action.
      Immunity to Disease (Ex)
      Giant hamsters are immune to all diseases (magical and otherwise).
      Light Blindness (Ex): When abruptly exposed to bright light (such a lightning bolt in a dark room), a cave creature is blinded for 1 round. When operating in an area of continual bright light (such as daylight or a daylight spell), the cave creature takes a –1 circumstance penalty on all attack rolls, saves, and checks.
      A cave creature receives a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened.
      *Since cave creatures tend to be colored much like the caves in which they live, a cave creature in an area of natural stone gains a +4 circumstance bonus on Stealth checks.

      Languages Common, Toad
      SQ fast movement, traits (Exile, Killer)
      Skills: Although the broken soul's sense of self has been greatly degraded, its very presence is unnerving to others, granting it a +8 racial bonus on Intimidate checks. However, it takes a –10 racial penalty on Concentration checks because of its constant pain.
      Agonized Wail (Ex): As a standard action, a broken soul can emit an agonized wail that inspires terror in every creature within 120 feet that has fewer character levels than itself. Each potentially affected opponent must succeed on a Will save (DC 11) or become shaken. This condition lasts until the affected opponent is out of range. A successful saving throw renders an opponent immune to that broken soul's agonized wail for 1 minute.
      Baleful Gaze (Su): Any creature within 60 feet that meets a broken soul's gaze must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 11) or take 1d4 points of Strength drain, 1d4 points of Constitution drain, and 1d4 points of Charisma drain.
      Whatever the result of the saving throw, the creature cannot be affected by the same broken soul's baleful gaze again for 1 minute.
      Torturous Touch (Su): A broken soul can deliver a torturous touch by making a successful melee touch attack against a target. Any creature struck by this attack must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 11) or take 2d6 points of slashing damage and 1d6 points of Dexterity damage. Furthermore, the affected creature immediately falls prone and lies convulsing and helpless for 1d4 rounds.
      Possessions: the finger razors are bolted to his hands and cannot normally be removed, the cage on his head is to keep him from ripping his face off.

      Languages Common, Sylvan
      SPECIAL ABILITIES
      Light Sensitivity (Ex)
      Creatures with light sensitivity are dazzled in areas of bright sunlight or within the radius of a daylight spell.
      Pipes (Su)
      A satyr can focus and empower his magic by playing haunting melodies on his panpipes. When they play, all creatures within a 60-foot radius must make a DC 17 Will save or be affected by fear, the only tune they still remember. A creature that successfully saves against the pipes' effects cannot be affected by the same set of pipes for 24 hours, but can still be affected by the satyr's other spell-like abilities as normal. The satyr's use of his pipes does not count toward his uses per day of his spell-like abilities, and if separated from them he may continue to use his standard abilities. The pipes themselves are masterwork, and a satyr can craft a replacement with 1 week of labor. The save DC is Charisma-based.
      Skills
      A nocturnal creature benefits from a +4 racial bonus to Perception and Stealth checks. When inside or looking into an area of bright light (daylight spell or greater illumination), the nocturnal creature takes a -4 on Perception checks.
      A primitive creature maintains any racial bonuses to skills. In addition, the primitive creature has a +4 racial bonus to Stealth and Survival skills. The primitive creature calculates and gains skill points from class levels normally.
      Brainworms
      Individually, these tiny parasites are almost invisible to the naked eye, yet en masse they're capable of taking down even the strongest animals. Entering the body through contact with an infected host or corpse (especially through open wounds), these thin worms quickly migrate to the brain and begin reproducing. The infestation is typically evidenced by a dulling of the senses and intellect and by erratic bouts of irrational rage toward other creatures during which the worms attempt to spread to other hosts through combat and injury. Examining the brain of a late-stage victim reveals a living carpet of thousands of tiny parasites.
      Type disease (parasite), contact or injury; Save Fortitude DC 14
      Onset 1 day; Frequency 1/day
      Effect 1d3 Wis damage and 1d3 Int damage, if damaged in combat, target must make a second Fort save or gain the confused condition for the duration of the encounter; Cure 2 consecutive saves
      Possessions: Each wears a Ring of the Evil Eye:
      A ring of the evil eye is a cursed item that appears to be a moist living eye set in a large gold ring. This disturbing item provides its wearer with a +6 bonus on Perception checks and a +2 bonus on initiative rolls, and that appears to be the item's only function. Yet if the wearer is the target of a divination (scrying) spell, he automatically fails any saving throw to resist the spell and the spell automatically penetrates the wearer's spell resistance (if any).
      A simple detect magic spell yields only a faint transmutation aura on this item. An identify spell has a 1% chance per caster level to reveal the item's true properties. Analyze dweomer automatically reveals the ring's true nature.
      Moderate divination; CL 7th; Forge Ring, clairaudience/ clairvoyance, scrying; Price 6,000 gp;

      Fire Beetles
      The fire beetles are slowly starving to death, unable to move due to the brain worms that have made them mindless.
