This monstrous old woman has skin like stone. From her right hand grows a single long claw.

Creature Codex

The u’tlun’ta, also known as the stone hag or the spearfinger hag, is a loathsome predator that lurks at the edges of civilization in order to prey on travelers and innocents. Like most hags, their favorite prey are children, and they delight in masquerading as helpless old ladies in order to come close. Their weapon of choice is a single awl-like finger, capable of making deep and deadly puncture wounds. If they have time to savor a kill, they will devour the unfortunates’ liver and leave the rest of the corpse behind as a warning. 

Although an u’tlun’ta may use hill giants in her schemes, they despise stone giants and war with them frequently. An u’tlun’ta is more cunning and magically gifted, but the stone giants have the advantage of numbers and ranged capacity. A disguised u’tlun’ta may entice adventurers into wiping out a tribe of stone giants for her, and then turn on the adventurers when they are weakened and weary. U’tlun’ta are misanthropic and anti-social even by the standards of hags. They rarely form covens, but may be persuaded to come down from their rocky retreats by the promise of mass murder. A coven containing one or more u’tlun’ta adds stone to flesh and flesh to stone to the spell-like abilities they can use through coven magic.

Special Abilities

Spearfinger (Ex) The long finger of an u’tlun’ta acts as a manufactured weapon that deals 1d12 points of piercing damage and is wielded in one hand. It can be used to make iterative attacks, but cannot be sundered or disarmed, nor can it be wielded in two hands for a damage bonus. An u’tlun’ta can use Sleight of Hand to conceal her finger as if it were a light weapon. 
Stonewalker (Su) An u’tlun’ta ignores difficult terrain from natural, worked or magically manipulated stones.
