Artist’s impression of the mothman
Tim Bertelink

A shroud of dark wings cloaks this thin, humanoid shape. Two monstrous red eyes glare malevolently from its narrow face.

Little is known of these strange creatures, save that when they appear, calamity follows. Mothmen see themselves as agents of fate, exhibiting extraordinary powers to guide the hands of destiny. More often than not, citizens encounter a mothman and never recall the meeting, yet fall right into the creature’s obscure plans.

Mothmen stand almost 7 feet tall and weigh 100 pounds.

Agent of Fate  (Sp) A mothman may recreate  the effects of any spell of 5th level or lower once per day as a spell-like  ability, but only if doing so steers the flow of fate in its proper course.  What the proper flow of fate entails is determined by the GM. Typical  uses of this ability include casting major image to coax someone to a  portentous location, casting raise dead to return someone with an important  fate to life, or using rusting grasp to weaken a structure and cause some  necessary calamity.

Mind-Warping Gaze  (Su) Fear, 30 feet, Will  DC 18 negates. A creature that fails a save against this attack becomes  shaken for 1d6 rounds. A creature currently suffering from a fear effect  that fails this save instead takes 1d4 points of Wisdom damage. This is  a mind-affecting fear effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.
