Clutch (Ex)

A gug savant gains a +4 bonus to attacks rolls when attempting a grapple combat maneuver against a creature smaller than itself.

As a full action, a gug savant can attempt two grapple combat maneuvers against a creature with a –4 penalty to the attack rolls.

Profane Blight (Su)

Once per day as a standard action, a gug savant can call up unholy power to smite all good and neutral (not evil) creatures within 30 feet of itself. Each affected creature takes 5d8 points of damage and is sickened for 2d4 rounds. A successful DC 19 Will save reduces damage to half and negates the sickened effect. The effects cannot be negated by remove affliction or remove condition, but break enchantment is effective.


Environment any underground
Organization solitary

Gugs are inhuman monstrosities that dwell in the deep places of the world. Whether they were banished to the dark lands by ancient gods or the light-loving races they terrorized, or perhaps were brought to the deep realms by dark powers from some even more inhuman nightmare realm, is unknown, but gugs are loathed by other races for their carnal rites of slaughter.

Gugs are 16 feet tall and weigh nearly 2,000 pounds, but they move with an eerie, unnatural gait as though their limbs contained far too many joints. They can contort and distend their limbs for greater reach or to wriggle easily through impossibly Small passages. Gugs may cling for long hours to cave walls or just within dark side-caverns, lying in wait for prey to stumble too close. Their senses are keen, however, and their joy in the bloody hunt is considerable and gugs who catch the scent of blood may stalk their prey for long days, even venturing at times beyond their caves to dare the bright lands of the surface in search of tasty meat to drag back for their horrific sacrifices.
