New Monster: Vulkanite


Hit Dice:  3+3
Armor Class:  12
Attacks:  1 touch (1d4 plus 1 Con dmg)
Saving Throw:  14

Movement:  Fly 12
Challenge Level/XP:  4/120

 The vulkanites are near-incorporeal denizens of the depths of Leptis Magna.  They are of mysterious origin, and not many who have encountered them have survived to tell tales of their existence.  It is theorized that they were cursed in ages past by sorceries now best forgotten, or enthralled by evil gods.  They are cruel and life-hating, and seek to destroy all those who would delve too deeply into Leptis Magna.

In combat, they touch their targets with their wispy claws, and this inflicts a wracking pain that deals 1d4 damage plus 1 point of Constitution damage.  Reduced Constitution, of course, can lead to additional hit point loss if appropriate (by the loss of Con bonus, or if a Con penalty is gained).  Also they can only be hit by magic, magic weapons, and silver weapons, as their sorcerous nature protects them from most mundane forms of attack.
