Karrnathi Bestiary

Today we introduce ‘weapons grade’ undead from the country of Karrnath who use their dead to bulk up their military forces. While hopefully your players never give reason for the Karrnath military to go after them, the Emerald Claw also has some of these dangerous and somewhat Intelligent undead in their forces as well.


Yes, the Karrnathi military undead are both intelligent versions of the classic skeleton and zombie which might catch players off guard as these creatures use dangerous tactics but also leaves them open to a few more possible spells given they are no longer mindless.


Due to the recent memory of the Last War Karrnathi military undead don’t adjust Recall Knowledge DCs BUT the Rituals to create these unique skeletons and zombies is Rare ritual heavily guarded by the Karrnathi Military but unfortunately Emerald Claw, former Karrnathi elite military unit now religious terrorists, have these rituals in their clutches as well. Abilities outside of the Bestiary but standardize else where are hyperlinked to Archives of Nethys for the rules.


Karrnathi Skeletal Soldier
These frightful skeletons are prepared for war with their exceptional gear and make quite the presence as the bones slowly seep blood. These Soldier skeletons usually open up combat with trying to disarm their opponents before focusing their dual wielding to drive damage while using the double blades to protect themselves.
