"Bert...ah don't like this here mountain..."

Batsquatch are large batlike creatures or flying primates. They stand 9 feet tall, with a huge wingspan.  They have yellow eyes, blue fur, birdlike feet and a canine muzzle.  It is believed they have psychic powers allowing them to interfere with electronics.  The truth is weirder.  Unlike bats, they have a sort of radar instead of sonar, created via an electromagnetic field they produce.

Improved Grab (Ex): A Batsquatch that successfully hits with it's Slam attack can make a Grapple Check as Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. If successful it usually flies upwards, and then drops it's victim.

EMP Radar (Ex):  The Batsquatch has Blindsight in a 60 foot Cone.  It also fries electronics.  Any computer, telephone, television, or other device with a computer processor inside ceases to function immediately, and the contents of hard drives and other storage media are scrambled.  It usually stops cars as well.

Combat: Batsquatch rely on flyby attacks to whittle foes down, before grabbing them, flying as high as they can, and then dashing them to the ground.

"Bert...I know they want one of these for some reason...but if it doesn't get off my face and stop screaming..."

Drekavac have been described as various different beings.  It has been said to resemble a large Aye-Aye, a canine whose hind legs are similar to a kangaroos, or even an odd looking bird.  This is the cryptid version (which is far more harmless than the mythical one).

Screech (Ex): The Drakavac's screams are particularly unnerving (particularly if you didn't realize it was there before). A Drekavac may scream as a Swift Action and all living beings within 30' must make a DC 12 Willpower Save (Save DC is Con Based with a +2 Racial Bonus) or be Frightened for 1 round.

Enhanced Low Light Vision (Ex): As regular Low Light Vision, but has twice the range.

Light Sensitivity (Ex): Drekavac are Dazzled in sunlight on in the area of effect of a Daylight spell.

Skills: Drekavac have a +8 Racial Bonus to Balance, Climb, and Jump Checks.  It may always Take 10 on a Balance or Climb Check, and it may use either it's Str or Dex Modifier for Climb and Jump Checks, whichever is better.

Combat: Drekavac are irritable and easily spooked and usually flee after screeching.  If someone approaches they bite hysterically before fleeing.  Fleeing is the operative word here.

"Aw c'mon Bert.  It's called a Hodag.  It's a silly name monster, how tough can it be."

"You remember that incident with the Gayfrusionbloorten critter?"

"I remember making you swear not to mention it again."

The Hodag is a four limbed dinosaur like creature with a face somewhere between that of a man and a frog with huge fangs.  It's covered n spikes and has a spear like point at the end of it's tail.  They seem fairly hard to kill as well. 

Improved Grab (Ex):  If the Hodag hits successfully with it's Bite attack, it may make a Grapple Check immediately as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If it succeeds it may then rake while doing it's bite and claw damage.

Rake (Ex): If the Hodag successfully Grapples an opponent it gains 2 additional Rake attacks (to hit and damage are same as claw attacks).

Spikes (Ex): The Hodag is covered in spikes and opponents attempting to Grapple it take 1d6 damage plus their own Strength Modifier.

Trackless Step (Ex): Identical to the Druid ability of the same name.

Combat: Hodags are not subtle creatures and usually begin with biting down and holding on for dear life while ripping their prey to shreds (they have an affinity for white bulldogs).

The Zamba Zaraa is an inflatable Hedgehog living in Mongolia's Gobi Desert.

POOF! (Ex): If threatened the Zamba Zaraa inflates itself to nearly double it's size as a Swift Action.  This means some predators will not be able to swallow it.  If the Zamba Zaraa inflates on a round it's being swallowed it lodges in the predators throat and it begins to choke unless it can vomit them up (use suffocation rules from the DMG, the predator must make a successful Grapple Check to vomit the Zamba Zaraa back up and dislodge it.  It gets a -6 Circumstance Penalty on the Grapple Check).  While lodged in the opponents throat the Zamba Zaraa does 1d6 damage per round.

Ram (Ex): If it's desperate a Zamba Zaraa will run at it's attacker in an attempt to impale it with it's spines.  It does 1d6-1 damage wit ha successful Charge attack.

Spiny Defense (Ex): Opponents who Grapple the Zamba Zaraa or attack it with Unarmed Strikes or Natural Weapons take 1d4 damage plus their own Strength Modifier damage.

Skills: Zamba Zaraa get a +8 Racial Bonus to Climb Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb Check.

Combat: The Zamba Zaraa prefers to flee opponents or puff up to intimidate them.  If it's desperate it will body check it's opponent with it's spines.

"Avoid the local junkyards man.  There's some messed up stuff in the junkyards."

The Milton lizard is a 15 foot lizard like cryptid from Kentucky.

Combat:  The Milton Lizard doesn't seem terribly combative given it's size, but it could potentially be devastating if cornered.

"Let me get this straight...you people are afraid of owls?"

"In their defense Abner, everyone should be afraid of owls."

The Chickcharney are a large species of flightless burrowing owl that the local natives have a great deal of superstitions about.  Granted owls are considered a little spooky by everyone.

Ball of Talons (Ex): Barn Owls are known for rolling onto their back to present opponents with their talons as a means of defending themselves.  The Chickcharney can decide to use this ability while making a Full Attack as a Swift Action.  As long as it is using it's Ball of Talons ability it gets two Talon attacks at +2 to hit doing 1d4-2 damage.  If it decides to use this maneuver before an opponent is within melee range to attack, it gets an Attack of Opportunity when an opponent moves into melee range even if it would not normally do so (this does not give it additional Attacks of Opportunity per round).

Skills: Chickcharney have a +8 Racial Bonus on Listen Checks, and a +8 Bonus on Spot checks at night or in shadowy illumination.  They also gain a +4 Racial Bonus on Move Silently Checks.

Combat: The Chickcharney usually stalks and ambushes small prey.  If a larger opponent attacks it rolls up and uses it's ball of talons ability.

The Tuttle Bottoms Monster is an odd cryptid haunting southern Illinois.  It is described as either an ape or bearlike entity that walks on 2 or 4 legs, and possessing a snout similar to an anteater.  It does not appear to be afraid of people and will readily approach them.

Skills: The Tuttle Bottoms Monster has a +8 Racial Bonus on Climb Checks, and can always Take 10 on a Climb Check.

Combat: While the Tuttle Bottoms Monster is quite intimidating, it doesn't appear to be aggressive that anyone knows of (though several deaths were reported during the time of it's sightings).

The Si-Te-Cah are a race of giants who formerly warred on the Paiute in their legends, and also known as the Saiduka or Sai'i.  They briefly achieved fame as 'the Lovelock Giants' when mummified bodies supposedly belonging to their people were found in Nevada caves.  Si-Te-Cah were said to live on makeshift boats made from woven fibers of the Tule plant to avoid their enemies.  They were said to be cannibalistic giants with red hair.    The mummies found had red hair, but that almost always happens due to chemicals in the soil.   Most info about them being red-headed cannibals comes strictly from crytozoological circles, and no mention of gigantism is found in actual Paiute legends (though the cannibalism was).  Of the mummies, there was said to be an 8' tall male, and a 6'6" female, but the remains have long since gone.

Ferocity (Ex): A Si-Te-Cah is such a tenacious combatant that it continues to fight without penalty even while disabled or dying.

Combat: Si-Te-Cah aren't great at ranged fighting.  They prefer to take opponents unawares and beat them to death.

In 1958 two Swedish men from the village of Domsten were accosted by levitating, loaf shaped blobs that tried to pull them into a UFO.  Fairly quick for blobs, they dodged most of the men's blows, and the ones that did land sank into the beings with no obvious effect.  A car horn cared them away.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the Blobs must hit a Large or smaller opponent with a Slam attack. They can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If they win the grapple check, they establishes a hold

Stench (Ex): When a Blob is angry or frightened, it secretes a chemical that nearly every form of animal life finds offensive. All living creatures (except Blobs) within 30 feet of a Blob must succeed on a DC 16 Fortitude save or be sickened for 10 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based. Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by the same Blobs stench for 24 hours. A delay poison or neutralize poison spell removes the effect from the sickened creature. Creatures with immunity to poison are unaffected, and creatures resistant to poison receive their normal bonus on their saving throws.

Surprisingly Adept Grappler (Ex): The Blobs take no Size Penalty to Grapple Checks.

Blind (Ex): The Blobs are immune to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight.

Blindsight (Su): The Blobs have Blindsight out to a range of 60 Ft.

Partial Ooze traits: Unlike most Oozes, the Blobs aren't Mindless.

Psychic Dodge (Su): Blobs gain a +2 Dodge Bonus to AC against opponents who aren't Mindless.

Levitation (Sp): Blobs may cast Levitate at will as a Sorcerer whose caster level equals their Hit Dice.

Combat : Blobs will try to grapple people and pull them into their ship.  They aren't particularly set on this though, and can be easily frightened off.

Stories vary wildly about Madam Koi Koi, but she is usually portrayed as a beautiful, but sadistic, school teacher wearing red lipstick and high heels (and sometimes a red dress as well).  After beating many of her students she is hit by a car, hung from a tree or beaten to death by the students.  She now haunts the government run secondary schools of Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa terrorizing the students who wear red to bed, or who leave their bed at night (or for other reasons). 

Corporeal Manifestation (Su): Madame Koi Koi manifests physically, unlike other ghosts.  She loses her Incorporeal Subtype while Manifested.

Terrifying Appearance (Su): Madame Koi Koi causes any living creature within 30' that can see her to make a DC 15 Willpower Save or become Panicked for 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per point of your Charisma modifier. If they make their save successfully, they are immune to the her Terrifying Appearance for 24 hours.

Ghosts Curse (Su): Madame Koi Koi may cast Bestow Curse at will as a Supernatural ability. Anyone 'slaying' her (i.e. temporarily ending your existence without permanently getting rid of her) is automatically subjected to this ability and receives no Save.

Invisibility (Su): Madame Koi Koi remains invisible even when she attacks. This ability is constant, but the ghost can suppress or resume it as a free action.

Rejuvenation (Su): This is the same as the regular Ghosts ability listed on page 118 of the Monster Manual.

Turn Immunity (Ex):
Madame Koi Koi is Immune to Turn/Rebuke Undead attempts.

Lifesense (Su): Madame Koi Koi may automatically sense Living creatures within 60' as thought she had Blindsight. She also automatically know the strength of their life force as if they had cast Deathwatch.

Combat: Madame Koi Koi prefers to curse her opponent, haunting them for days before finally beating them to death or hanging them.

"There are a lot of stories about how he came to be.  Many said he used to be a circus freak, or  escaped from a ghost train.  Others say he was a farmer who sacrificed goats to the Devil for power.  Despite this, he died and was resurrected as a monster.  Now he sacrifices people for even more power.  Don't go out to Pope Lick Creek trying to prove he exists.  You don't want to end u like the others."

The Pope Lick Monster is a deformed man with hairy goat legs, a white face, an aquiline nose and wide set eyes.  It has horns protruding from it's head, and long greasy hair.  It seems fairly hell bent on killing anyone it sees in it's territory, either pushing them off the trestle (or using it's powers to make them jump), or leaping down to attack passing vehicles.

Skills: The Pope Lick Monster has a +8 Racial Bonus on Jump Checks.  It also has a +4 Racial Bonus on Balance and Climb Checks.

Combat: The Monster usually tries to get victims to kill themselves with his magical powers.  Failing that he rushes in with his axe.

Challenge Rating:     7
Treasure:             None
Alignment:            Always Neutral
Advancement:          13-24 (Huge)
Level Adjustment:     ---

Almost as large as the elephant, and built like a rhino, the River Ngoubou is said to resemble an Arsinotherium that lies in the water.  Sometimes it is depicted as only having one horn.

Powerful Charge (Ex): A Ngoubou deals 4d8+30 points of damage when it makes a charge.

Hold Breath (Ex): A Ngoubou can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 4 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning.

Skills: A Ngoubou has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

Combat: Pretty similar to your average rhino.



Ngoubou  (savannah version)
                      Large Animal
Hit Dice:             8d8+40 (76 hp)
Initiative:           +0
Speed:                30 ft. (6 squares)

Treasure:             None
Alignment:            Always Neutral
Advancement:          9-12 HD (Large); 13-24 HD (Huge)
Level Adjustment:     ---

The savannah Ngoubou is said to resemble a ceratopsian the size of an ox, with an elephant like tail.  It has from 3 to 6 horns, and a frill on it's head.  It is said to bear live young, so is not likely a reptile.

Powerful Charge (Ex): A Ngoubou deals 4d6+24 points of damage when it makes a charge.

Trample (Ex): Reflex half DC 22. The save DC is Strength-based

Combat: Pretty similar to your average Triceratops.

The Nguma-Momene is a serpentine lizard 30 to 50 feet long.  Cryptoxoologists think it may be a giant monitor lizard, crocodilian or maybe even a Spinosaur.  It is sometimes described as hunting prey with electrical currents in a manner similar to Electric Catfish.

Electrical Pulse (Ex): At will as a Standard Action the Nguma-Momene can unleash a powerful electrical pulse doing 12d6 electricity damage in a 30 ft. Radius with itself in the center.  Opponents within this area must make a DC 37 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based) or be Stunned 1d4 rounds. It is immune to it's own electrical barrage, but not that of other Nguma-Momene, or electrical attacks.  It may only use this attack in the water, and only once every 1d4 rounds.

Swamp Walk (Ex): A Nguma-Momene can move normally in Marsh Terrain.

Hold Breath (Ex): A Nguma-Momene can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 4 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning.

Skills: A Nguma-Momene has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

Combat: In the water, the Nguma-Momene opens with it's electrical pulse.  Otherwise it attacks much like a crocodile.

The Dingonek is a bizarre cryptid spotted in Lake Victoria once, in 1907.  It was described as a combination of a snake, leopard and whale.  The witness said it was 14-15 feet long with a leopard like head with two sabre teeth, and a body as broad as a hippos.  It had armored scales similar to a pangolin or armadillo, and clawed, reptilian feet, and a broad fin tail.  It's coloration was similar to a Leopards.  It appeared to resist fire from a .303 rifle.  A second witness in 1913 described it as having an otter like head with no sabre teeth.  There is some speculation among the cryptid community that it may be (and I can't believe I'm typing these words) an armored jungle walrus.  It's also thought it could be a water lion, a reference to a common cryptid group that appear to be aquatic big cats with long teeth.  I may stat them later when I have time to research them.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Dingonek must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold.

Pounce (Ex): If a Dingonek charges a foe, it can make a full attack.

Hold Breath (Ex): A Dingonek can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 8 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning.

Skills: Dingonek have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks. Dingonek have a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

Combat: Dingonek tend to charge, bite and grapple.  Sometimes they strike from ambush as well.
