Book of Vile Darkness 3.5
By Monte Cook
This device consists of two lengths of wood or other strong material, plus several nails. The executioner affixes the condemned to the structure by driving nails through the wrists and the arch of each foot. When affixed, the condemned is considered crucified. On a successful Profession (executioner) check, excruciating pain slowly kills the condemned over the next several hours: She loses a number of hit points equal to 10% of her full normal total hit points each hour. If the executioner botches the crucifixion, the condemned is not securely fashioned to the cross and gains a +10 bonus on Escape Artist checks. She still loses 10% of her total hit points each hour she remains on the cross.
