Hello this is 911, what is your emergency?"

"THERE'S SOMETHING OUT IN THE YARD!  YOU GOTTA HELP US!"

"What is it?'

"IT'S BIG!"

"What's it doing?"

"IT'S LOOKIN' AT ME!!!"

Movies inevitable portray Sasquatch as horrifying rapists who eat people.   It's amazing they haven't sued for defamation of character yet.

Improved Grab (Ex): If Bigfoot successfully hits with it's Slam attack it can immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If successful, it can Rend.

Rend (Ex): Bigfoot does 2d6+20 damage with a successful grapple check.

Frightful Presence (Ex): Whenever Bigfoot  attacks or charges all opponents within 30' must make a DC 22 Willpower Save (Save DC is Cha Based) or be Shaken for 5d6 rounds.  If they succeed they are immune to this Bigfoots Frightful Presence for 24 hours.

Combat:  Sasquatch divide their time between leisurely beating their opponents to death, or grabbing them and tearing them to pieces.

This is Bigfoot as represented by bad horror movies like Abominable.

"Something is behind these dinosaur attacks.  Something...Evil..."

Those of you who collected the old Dinosaurs Attack cards will recognize this one.

Spells: Dinosaur may cast spells as a Wizard equal to his Hit Dice Level (however he requires no spell book).

Flame Sheath (Su): Dinosaur Satan is surrounded by flames.  They add 2d6 fire damage to his grapple attacks and unarmed strikes.  In addition anyone attacking him with a grapple, unarmed strike, or natural weapon takes 2d6 fire damage.

Immunities: Dinosaur Satan is Immune to Cold, Fire, and Acid Damage. he is also immune to poison, polymorph, sleep effects, paralysis, and stunning.

True Seeing (Su): Dinosaur Satan has a continually operating True Seeing spell (20th level caster).

Call Horde (Su): Once per day Dinosaur Satan may call up to 100 Hit Dice worth of Dinosaurs.  They remain with him permanently until destroyed.  This otherwise works like Summon Monster IX.  He cannot have more than 100 Hit Dice present at any one time.

Reptile Mind (Su): Any dinosaur or prehistoric reptile coming within sight of Dinosaur Satan must make a DC 35 Willpower save or permanently become his servant (Save DC is Charisma Based).  Servants will do anything he commands, up to and including taking their own lives.

Combat: Dinosaur Satan prefers to use summoned Dinosaurs and remain behind the scenes.  If confronted he actually likes physical combat as opposed to spells, and unless he believes the opponent is a  threat he will attempt a Grapple.

"Just keep firing dammit!"

Juggernauts are those hapless huge mountains of muscle and bone so beloved in dinosaur fantasy films and books.  The heavily armored behemoths that can absorb round after round without taking more than a moments annoyance from it.

"I never expected to bury my friends.  I never expected them to be charred mockeries of humanity when I found them either..."

Seen in many of the worse dino movies, these are the lovely critters that for some reason are capable of spitting fire (and sometimes they eat coal!).  In some cases it's claimed their inner fires make them immune to cold so they can live in the arctic.  God bless the 50's huh?

"It's suckin' her blood!"

The Beast from Haunted Cave appears to have potentially hatched from an egg (which the film implies was recently), and there are no signs of there being more of it's kind.  This also implies it may be an infant and adults may be significantly larger and more powerful.  It was apparently fairly tough, and while gunfire drove it off it didn't appear to permanently injure it until the end of the film when mass gunfire (and a liberal dose of flame) puts an end to it.  The beast appears vaguely humanoid, but spend much of it's time crouched on all fours walking in a spiderlike gait.  It's front limbs are incredibly long tentacles, and most of it's other features are obscured by long hair (which may be hair or some sort of filament similar to it's webbing). 

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Beast successfully hits with it's Tentacle Attack, it may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of opportunity.  If successful it may Grapple it's victim, cocoon it, or drink it's blood.

Blood Drain (Ex): If the Beast has it's opponent pinned in a Grapple, or it has it cocooned and helpless, it may do 1d4 temporary Strength damage per round. 

Webbing (Ex): The Beast may cocoon unconscious, paralyzed or helpless victims with some sort of weblike substance.  Once they awake they can try to escape from the cocoon, but with their arms and legs bound as they are they will have to make a successful DC 15 Escape Artist Check or DC 19 Strength Check to break free.  The Save DC is Constitution based, and the Strength Check DC has a +4 Racial Bonus.  The Beast can cocoon a Tiny or Smaller opponent as a Standard Action, and a Small or Medium opponent as a Full Round Action.  It will not willingly attack opponents it's own size or larger but could in theory cocoon them as well.

Frightful Presence (Ex): When the Beast Grapples or Charges an opponent, all enemies with less than 6 HD within 30' must make a DC 16 Willpower Save (Save DC is Charisma based) or be Shaken for the duration of the encounter.

Skills: The Beast gains a +4 Racial Bonus to Climb and Hide Checks.

Combat: The Beast normally does non lethal damage with it's tentacle attacks (it takes no attack roll penalty when it does this) and Grapple Checks because it wants live victims.  Once it has grappled them into unconsciousness it takes them to it's lair or other convenient hiding place and cocoons them in webbing so it can use their blood as a food source.  Since it does not feed them they eventually die of a combination of blood loss and starvation.

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!"

Although referred to as Giant Leeches, these creatures only resemble Leeches in the basest sense.  They do subsist on blood, and they are invertebrates, but these creatures have two short suckered tentacles, and prominent eyes (maybe even a face).  They also appear incredibly resistant to damage, even gunfire.  In the movie it's assumed they're a mutation due to radiation from the local Rocket Base, but the explanation seems unlikely as they don't resemble leeches much, and aren't nearly as fragile.  In fact many take several shots from rifles used to kill Buffalo, and the underwater shockwave from a dynamite blast.
 
Blood Drain (Ex): Leeches do 1d4 temporary Constitution damage against opponents they have Pinned in a Grapple.  Opponents who lose one third or more of their Con score are considered Exhausted until the damage has healed.

Capsize (Ex): Leeches can surface under any boat 12' long or smaller in an attempt to capsize it.  It has a 45% chance to capsize any boat by charging it from underneath.

Improved Grab (Ex): Leeches may make a Grapple Check without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.

Skills: Giant Leeches get a +8 Racial Bonus to Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Swim Check.

Combat: The Leeches capsize boats if prey is in them, and then go straight for the Grapple.  They quickly pull victims deeply into the lake into underground caves with pockets of air.  Most victims cant swim well enough to escape assuming they don't drown in the first place, or are too weak from lack of blood.  Due to their slow moving nature on land they generally don't pursue prey that is aware of them out of the water because it's hard for them to catch.

"That's how they kill each other - that weak spot in the throat!"

The Black Scorpion is the largest of a nest of giant prehistoric scorpions released near Mexico City by a Volcanic eruption.  While most of the scorpions were only half it's size (and extremely tough), the Black Scorpion was enormous and easily shrugged off Tank fire before being electrocuted.  While similar to Scorpions their eyes and mouthparts are unlike those of modern scorpions.  But like their namesake they are incredibly territorial, and will kill anything they see (each other included).

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Black Scorpion successfully hits with it's Pincer attack it may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If successful it will Constrict if the opponent is 2 or more Size Classes smaller than it, or Sting if the opponent is larger.

Constrict (Ex): The Black Scorpion does 16d6+30 damage with a successful Grapple Check, unless it wishes to sting.

Sting (Ex): The Black Scorpions sting does 6d6+15 damage, and the victim must make a DC 85 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based) or be poisoned.  Initial damage is 2d6 Constitution, Secondary damage is death.

Vulnerable Throat (Ex): Scorpions have a small white patch on their throat that is vulnerable and unarmored.  Since they are not immune to each others venom they sting this patch in combat to slay one another.  Opponents who take a -4 to hit, and successfully confirm a critical hit, ignore the Scorpions DR.

Skills: Black Scorpions get a +4 Racial Bonus to Climb, Hide, and Spot Checks.

Combat: Black Scorpions charge and go straight for the Grapple before squeezing their opponents to death.  If they put up a fight or are almost as large as the Scorpion it stings.  They are very aggressive and will fight to the death.

"What the heck is that?"

In one scene in the Black Scorpion when the geologists go underground, they encounter several monsters, including this strange creature that looks like an armored inchworm with tentacles.  It's not quite a match for even the younger scorpions, and is a left over prop from the lost Spider Pit sequence from the original King Kong.

Tentacles: The Inchworm can make a Grapple Check without provoking an Attack of opportunity.  If successful, it holds it's opponent while gnawing with it's jaws, doing 3d6+15 damage.

Twisting Grappler: The Inchworm twists and turns when grappled by an opponent.  Aside from being hard to hold on to, it makes it difficult to use extra attacks (such as stings or rakes) gained by opponents Grappling it.  Opponents who can use extra Natural Weapon attacks in a Grapple take a -4 Penalty to hit.

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

Combat: Inchworms Grapple opponents, trying to Pin them so they can then Bite at their leisure.

"Run!"

Also in the underground lair of the semi-communal giant scorpions was a giant trap door spider with long crablike pincers.  It also was a holdover from the lost Spider Pit scene from King Kong.

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Trap Door Spider successfully hits with it's Pincer attack it may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  It may also make a Grapple as part of a Charge Attack. If it successful it may constrict. 

Constrict (Ex): The Trap Door Spider does 2d6+6 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

Ambush (Ex): Trap Door Spiders make burrows which have hinged lids with silken triplines radiating from them.  It hides beneath the lid holding the triplines, effectively giving it Tremorsense 60' while in this position as well as Total Concealment.  Opponents get a DC 21 Knowledge (Nature) Check to realize whats up or when the spider pushes the lid up and charges them they are considered Flat-Footed. 

Skills:  Trap Door Spiders get a +4 Racial Bonus on Hide and Spot Checks.  They also get a +8 Racial Bonus to Climb Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb Check.  The Trap Door Spider gets a +4 Racial Bonus on Grapple Checks against Flat Footed opponents.

Combat: Trap Door Spiders generally lie in wait under the lids of their burrows before ambushing prey.  If it manages to dodge the initial attack the spider will give chase.

"New York is like a city besieged. A state of emergency has been declared... and the entire police force put on 24-hour duty. Civilian defense is fully mobilized... and shelters have been opened in an effort to stop the mounting hysteria. All traffic has been halted. And Times Square, the heart of New York, has stopped beating. The National Guard has been called out, fully armed. to repel the invader. This is full-scale war against a terrible enemy... such as modern man has never before faced. Ordinary bullets have no effect... and a method of destroying the awesome creature... has not yet been formulated. But the battle field has been cleared. Herald Square. 34th Street. Broadway. Every section of the city is guarded. No one knows where the monster will strike next. It was last seen on Wall Street, close to where it came ashore. But lower Manhattan has become no man's land... where the beast, at present, lies hidden. The National Guard is barricading the entire area... in an effort to confine the death and destruction... of what is already the worst disaster in New York's history."

The Rhedosaurus is a fictional dinosaur that in all honesty resembles a more common lizard like reptile than anything else.  It also appears to be capable of surviving being frozen in ice for millions of years, has a high degree of resistance to disease (although it is a carrier), and is capable of either breathing underwater or holding it's breath for obscenely long periods of time.  Traveling through a blizzard doesn't seem to be a problem for it, and small arms fire only seems to enrage it as opposed to causing any serious damage.

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Rhedosaurus successfully hits with it's bite attack it may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If it is successful it may then do Bite damage each round, or attempt to Swallow an opponent if it is at least 3 Size classes smaller than it.

Swallow Whole (Ex): A Rhedosaurus can  try to swallow an opponent at least 3 Size Classes smaller than itself with a successful Grapple Check.  The swallowed creature takes 2d6+18 bludgeoning damage along with 18 points of acid damage per round.  A swallowed creature can cut it's way out by doing 50 points of damage with a light slashing or piercing weapon to the Rhedosaurus' gullet (AC 25).  Once it exits muscular action closes the hole, and other swallowed opponents must find their own way out.

Infectious (Ex): The Rhedosaurus is infected with an incredibly virulent bacteria.  Any opponent who successfully damages the Rhedosaurus in melee must make a Reflex Save (Save DC is 10 plus damage dealt) or come in contact with it's blood.  If the attack is a natural weapon such as a claw or bite the opponent gets no Save. Contact, DC 47 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based), Incubation period 1 day, damage is 1d6 Constitution.

Tail Lash (Ex): The Rhedosaurs' Tail Lash attack can only be made to it's rear.  It affects all opponents in a 30' Cone.

Skills: Rhedosaurus get a +8 Racial Bonus to Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Swim Check.

Combat: The Rhedosaurus normally moves forward, bites and swallows.  If there are multiple targets it will Tail Lash.

The film lists these creatures as dried out eggs from prehistoric times that hatch when exposed to water in the manner that some primitive shrimp do.  An earthquake in the Salton Sea provides the water.  Despite being called molluscs, the monsters look more like armored caterpillars with mandibles than snails.  Perhaps it's their exposure to radiation...

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Giant Snail successfully hits with it's Bite Attack it may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If successful it does it's Bite damage each round.

Blood Drain (Ex): If the Giant Snail pins it's opponent in a Grapple it may do 1d4 temporary Constitution damage with a successful Grapple Check.

Severing Bite (Ex): The Snails jaws are incredibly sharp and threaten a critical on an 18-20. 

Defensive Foam (Ex): If the Snail takes damage it emits defensive foam from it's body, giving it a +6 Racial Bonus on all Grapple Checks made to escape Grapples and a +1 Deflection Bonus to AC.  This foam is radioactive and highly toxic, and creatures attacking the Snail with a Bite Attack may be poisoned.   Ingested, DC 16 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based), Initial and Secondary damage is 1 negative level.

Skills: Snails get a +8 Racial Bonus to Swim Checks, and may Always Take 10 on a Swim Check.

Combat: Snails simply approach as quickly as thy can and begin biting.  Once they have a victim in a Grapple they start draining his blood.  They definitely aren't tactical geniuses.

"Looks like a rat, smells like a skunk - some call them bone-eaters."

Killer Shrews are mutants grown to enormous size due to scientific experiments.  They share their smaller cousins prodigious breeding rates, and (unfortunately) their enormous appetites.  This means they quickly wipe out the available food in any isolated areas in which they occur unless exterminated quickly.

Poison (Ex): Injury, DC 14 Fortitude Save, Initial and Secondary Damage 1d3 Constitution (Save DC is Constitution based).

Hyper Metabolism (Ex): Shrews must eat three times their own body weight each day or risk starving to death (see DMG page 304).  The Shrew may go 8 hours without food, and then must make a Fortitude check each hour (DC 10+1 per previous check).  However they get a Bonus to Initiative Checks, Attack rolls, and Damage rolls equal to their Constitution modifier.

Poison Assimilation (Ex): Killer Shrews gain a +8 Racial Bonus on ingested Poisons as they're metabolism quickly assimilates it.  If the Shrew eats an Ingested Poison and succeeds in it's Fortitude Save it's poisonous bite becomes worse.  If the Save DC of the ingested Poison is higher than that of the Shrews, the Save DC of the Shrews poison raises to match it for 24 hours.  Regardless of the other poisons effects it also increases the damage of the Shrews poison to 1d6 Constitution.

Skills: Shrews gain a +4 Racial Bonus to Listen, Search, Spot, and Survival Checks.

Combat: Shrews charge, take their prey down and begin eating even before it dies.  Ew...

"Have you heard the reports of a 'giant lizard'?"

The Giant Gila Monster is theoretically a normal lizard with a pituitary gland problem according to the film (yeah, right).  It hints there may be more than one, and the size of the creature in the film does vary a bit from around 30' long in some shots to over 60' in some.

Poison (Ex): Injury, DC 38 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based), Initial and Secondary damage 1d8 Dexterity.

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Giant Gila Monster successfully hits with it's Bite attack it can immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.

Trample (Ex): DC 40 Reflex Save for half damage (Save DC is Strength based).

Burst of Speed (Ex): 3 times per day as a Swift Action the Gila Monster can increase it's base land speed to 50' for 1d4 rounds.

Combat: The Gila Monster generally ambles along putting up the occasional burst of speed to catch something and bite it, or trample it to the ground.

"Oh my God! They're herding us like cattle! "

After eating toxic waste ants grow to giant size and become intelligent and telepathic.  My god if only we had known this, bad things could have been avoided! 

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Ant successfully hits with it's Bite Attack it immediately gets to make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If successful it does bite damage each round.

Pheromone Spray (Ex): At will the Queen Ant can unleash a burst of pheromone gas in an area radiating 10' from herself.  Anything breathing this gas must make a DC 20 Willpower Save or become part of the ant Hivemind (Save DC is Constitution based).  They can communicate with the ants and willingly obey orders as though under a Dominate spell.  This lasts one week, and as long as it is reapplied before wearing off the victim doesn't get another Save.  If it wears off the victim gets a Save like normal when it is reapplied.  If however the Queen is injured and uses her Incite Frenzy ability all victims of this ability get another Willpower Save with a +6 Bonus.  They also get another Save (along with the Bonus) if attacked by Ants (or without the Bonus if they get reduced to half HP or less).

Incite Frenzy (Ex):  Whenever the Queen is injured she can put out a telepathic call for help as a Standard Action.  All Ants within 1 mile will make their way towards her, killing everything in their path to do so, even their mind controlled human pets.  The Frenzy lasts until 1d6 rounds after they have reached the Queen and killed whatever has caused her pain.  While in a state of Frenzy Ants get a +2 Bonus on Attack and Damage rolls.

Hivemind (Ex):  All Ants within 25 miles of their Queen are in constant telepathic contact, and if one is aware of a danger they all are.  No Ant is considered Flanked or Flat-Footed unless they all are.

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

Combat:  Ants seem pretty straightforward in their attacks, but they try to herd intruders towards their Queen so she can gas them and make them part of the collective.


Writers notes: I know they're mutants due to toxic waste, but Magical Beast seemed the best fit Type wise

There is a Demiplane that can be accessed only via a door in a flat in the British countryside (although the  cats claim to know of several).  If unlocked it leads to a bricked over wall, but the inhabitants of the Other Demiplane can hear it and know, and one in particular can leave to come to our world.  It is unknown if she created the Other Demiplane, or found it, but she seems to be able to manipulate it to create a world of her own design.  A world she uses to ensnare the one thing she can't make: children.  Called the Other Mother by one child she kidnapped (and the Beldam by others), this being is capable of making twisted mockeries of things that exist, but is incapable of actual creation, including offspring.  So she attempts to kidnap children from our world, but eventually grows tired of them and resents them, and simply eats them alive.

The Other Mother appears to be the real mother of whatever child she lures to her world with a few important differences.  First she has paper white skin and shiny black buttons for eyes.  Her fingers are incredibly long and thin with sharp dark red nails, and they never cease moving.  If she should ever smile her teeth are also unusually long, and she appears impossibly tall and thin.  Her wet hair moves of it's own as if she is underwater.  When angry she grows to huge proportions, her hair whipping as if in a whirlwind, and her teeth and nails extend to obvious fangs and claws.

Devour Soul (Su): The Other Mother wants the one thing she can't have: children.  So she convinces the children who enter her Domain to let her sew buttons into their eyes in a magical ritual, and then becomes their surrogate parent for a time.  This is largely pointless because they weren't created by her, don't truly love her, and she has no familial attachment to them.  So when she grows tired of them she eats them, doing 1 point of Wisdom or Charisma Drain per day until they're just a husk (the children receive no Save).  It is believed she can only do this to beings whose eyes she has sewed buttons onto.  Any children slain in this manner rise as Ghosts, which the Other Mother imprisons in mirrors after hiding their souls in marbles or other seemingly harmless toys.   It is assumed she gets something out of them since she hordes them but exactly what is unknown.

Angry Winds (Su): When the Other Mother is angry she can cause stinging winds to circulate through the Other Demiplane.  The exact effect depends on distance from her.  This basically has the effect of a Gust of Wind spell, with her Caster Level being equal to her Hit Dice, and it lasting as long as she wants (she can make the winds stop as a Free Action).  Victims within 20' of her take the full 50 mph effect, and the wind speed drops 5 mph per 5' outside that area to a minimum of 5 mph throughout the whole plane.

Ghost Touch (Ex): The Other Mother appears to be able to interact normally with Incorporeal creatures as though they did not have the Subtype.

The Other Demiplane: The Other Demiplane is a blank white mist like space that seems to be manipulable.  At least the Other Mother appears capable of doing so.  The only known portal to it lies in an English flat, although one local cat claims there are other doors.  The portal at the flat requires a key, and even the Other Mother needs the key (or someone to unlock it from our side) to pass through to our world.  She can close or open any of the other portals at will as a Free Action (assuming she knows them all) regardless of her distance from the portal.  Animals from our world (or at least small mammals) appear to spontaneously Awaken (as per the spell) upon entering the Other Demiplane, or perhaps they always were and can merely talk there.  Many appear to gain some minor magical powers after time.  If using the Manual of the Planes it has the following Traits: Normal Gravity, Normal Time, Self-Contained, Divinely Morphic, Neutral Aligned.  Currently it is the size of the flat it copies, with a little room outside.  It is hinted that the Other Mother could expand this if she wished to but has never had a reason to do so.  The Other Mother appears to be able to make cosmetic changes in an area as large as the entire Plane, such as appearance change as a Free Action.  If she has other abilities she has not yet been known to demonstrate them, and no one else is known to be able to manipulate the plane.  Although she does seem attuned to the plane somehow, and can cast Greater Scrying and Discern Location at will as Supernatural Abilities (caster Level is equal to Hit Dice). 

Rat Servitors (Ex): The rats of the Other Demiplane (and there are many) appear to serve the Other Mother willingly, but it is entirely possible she has the same mental control of them she does over the Grub Servitors  (i.e. she can Dominate them at will regardless of range). 

Mirror Magic (Su): The Other Mother has key which allows her to unlock mirrors.  Whether or not this is the source of her magic and can be taken from her or its an extension of her will is unknown.  She can use the key to 'unlock' any mirror, and directly behind it is a space equal to the size of the mirror.  For example a 3' by 3' mirror will open into a 3' by 3' by 3' space, etc.  While the Other Mother appear to be able to walk/reach through mirrors as though she were incorporeal, she needs to unlock one to imprison someone behind it (as they cannot leave without the key).  She also appears to be able to generate images on mirrors like some sort of illusory television set, usually to fool children.  She can also use this ability to show the Other Demiplane to people in our world if they are viewing a mirror.  Effectively she can cast Silent Image at will on any mirror surface in the Demiplane, or in the flat it mirrors in our world.

Alter Form (Su): The Other Mother has some very poor illusion abilities, able to make herself look like a twisted facsimile of the child she's currently trying to trick.  When angry this illusion immediately drops, and she turns into a hideous hag standing over 12' tall.  She can switch between Medium and Large Size at will as a Free Action, and this otherwise works like the Alter Self spell except she always has buttons for eyes and certain other unnatural features.  She also appears to have complete control of her body, and can animate and control any portions of it removed (presumably she can re-attach them).  Pieces of her seem to retain her Blindsight ability.

Grub Servitors (Ex): Grub Servitors (for lack of a better term) are the faceless servitors of the Other Mother.  Whether they are natives of the Other Demiplane, or constructs made by her, they have little to no independent thought, and she may cast Dominate upon them at will (range extends throughout the Other Demiplane).  Caster Level is equal to her HD.  The Other Mother can sculpt them to resemble anything she wants as a Swift Action (this resembles the Alter Self spell in most respects except duration).  She can even merge two of them into a mass of limbs and organs as a Standard Action (they become immobile) or stick them to walls.  Due to the Influenced weakness they receive no Saving Throw against this.  As a reward they may use any skill with ranks equal to hers if necessary to pull of one of her charades.

Jellybats (Ex): The Jellybats are another possibly native lifeform of the Other Demiplane.  Like the Grub Servitors the Other Mother can shape them at will or dominate them, and usually uses them to create winged talking versions of pets.

Combat: The Other Mother prefers mind games to combat, but is fairly straightforward if angered.  She locks all the portals into the Other Demiplane, summons winds, and launches herself at the offender (or has the Grubs and rats murder them).

The Grub Servitors may or may not be natives of the Other Demiplane, but they are few in number, and seem to be completely under the thumb off the Other Mother, physically as well as mentally.  On their own they resemble great grublike featureless things with button eyes, but they can be shaped by the Other Mother into bizarre imitations of other creatures the Other Mother has seen, usually the parents of children.

Fury (Ex): If the Grub is down to half hit points or has an eye removed it roars and seems to swell with power, gaining the Powerful Build ability and a +2 Circumstance Bonus to Damage rolls for (3+ Con Modifier) rounds.

Malleable (Ex): The Grubs have exceptionally malleable bodies over which they have little control if the Other Mother wishes to make changes.  Due to their spongy, manipulable nature they are immune to flanking and critical hits.  Their only true vulnerability are their button eyes.  An opponent in melee range can make a Melee Touch Attack to grab one (or a Grapple Check if already in a Grapple) and then make a DC 16 Str Check to rip it off.  If both are removed the Grub is blind.

Influenced (Ex): The Grubs can speak or do as they will unless the Other Mother objects.  They receive a -6 Penalty on Saving Throws against any attack or ability she makes against them.

Combat: Initially Grubs are slow to attack as they try to fight the Other Mothers influence, but they inevitably fail and do their best to grab and devour opponents.

Jellybats in their true form resemble something like a jellyfish with spiderlike legs and batlike wings.  The Other Mother uses them to make pets for the children she entices, but for little else as they are not useful as fighters, and she already has the more dedicatedly evil rats as spies.

Webbing (Ex):  Jellybats can produce webbing 8 times per day.  It has a 50' range with a range increment of 10'.  This is similar to an attack with a net, and can affect any creature up to Small Size.  If two or more Jellybats cooperate, an they all attack successfully they can web a Medium creature (4 or more for Large, 8 or more for Huge, etc.).  Entangled beings can make a DC10 Escape Artist or DC 14 Strength Check to escape (the Save DC is Constitution based with a +4 Racial Bonus to the Strength Check DC, with an additional +2 Bonus to both Checks for each extra participating Jellybat).  The webbing has 2 hit points and 1 Hardness.

Malleable (Ex): The Jellybats have exceptionally malleable bodies over which they have little control if the Other Mother wishes to make changes.  Due to their spongy, manipulable nature they are immune to flanking and critical hits.

Influenced (Ex): The Jellybats can speak or do as they will unless the Other Mother objects.  They receive a -6 Penalty on Saving Throws against any attack or ability she makes against them.

Spider Climb (Ex): The Jellybats can climb as though they permanently had a Spider Climb spell in effect on their person.

Combat: Jellybats usually web opponents and flee.  They aren't fighters.

"DON'T TOUCH THAT NEST!!"

Tracker Jackers are (comparatively) giant wasps colored a bright gold.  Genetically bred as guards meant to hunt down and kill enemies, it was quickly discovered their venom not only had hallucinogenic properties but could be used to alter memories to control peoples minds.  It's also quite painful.

Distraction (Ex): Any living corporeal creature that begins it's turn in a swarms area of effect must make a DC 17 Fortitude Save or be Nauseated for 1 round (Save DC is Con based).  Spellcasting or concentrating on spells within the Swarms Area of Effect requires a Concentration Check (DC 20 plus spell level).  Using skills that require concentration or patience require a DC 20 Concentration Check.

Poison (Ex): Injury, DC 17 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Constitution based), Initial damage is pain for 2d6 hours and hallucinations for 1d4 days (possibly death with multiple stings).  The initial effects are pain (you are Fatigued as well as taking a -2 Penalty to attack and damage rolls, and Saving throws) and all Tracker Jackers receiving their Racial Bonus to Survival checks to track you if they are within 1 mile.  The hallucinations from the Secondary effects are often violent.  Roll 1d6 for it's effects:

1: Nightmare
2: Persistent Image
3: Hallucinatory Terrain
4: Phantasmal Killer
5: Mirage Arcana
6: Insanity

If you fail the Saving throw against more than one swarm attack from a Tracker Jacker you die within 1d6 rounds (no Save).

Weakness (Smoke)(Ex): Tracker Jacker exposed to smoke must make a DC 15 Fortitude Save each round they remain within (+1 to save DC for each additional round past the first) or become Fatigued for 1d4 hours.  If they fail a second Save they are Exhausted instead.

Skills: Tracker Jackers have a +8 Racial Bonus on Balance, Climb, and Spot Checks.  They also have a +8 Racial Bonus on Survival Checks to orient themselves or track whoever they've stung.

Combat: Tracker Jackers usually swarm, and keep swarming.  If somehow you are able to fight them off they will retreat and follow you to attack at a later date.
