Consume Power (Ex)

A ghizmer can consume power by touching an unattended, powered item or by succeeding on an attack targeting EAC against a powered object’s wielder. A successful touch drains 1d4 charges from the item. The ghizmer gains 2 temporary Hit Points for each charge drained. A ghizmer also gains 2 temporary Hit Points if it begins its turn in an irradiated area. It cannot gain more than 10 temporary Hit Points. The ghizmer retains these temporary Hit Points for 1 hour.

Power Discharge (Sp)

A ghizmer can spend 5 temporary Hit Points gained from consuming power to use magic missile or psychokinetic hand (CL 2nd).

Radiation Sustenance (Ex)

Whenever exposed to radiation, a ghizmer does not need to eat, drink, or breathe.

Tech Malfunction (Su)

A ghizmer emanates an aura that interferes with technological functions within 30 ft. If a creature using a technological item within the aura rolls a natural 1 on a check or an attack roll involving that item, and the item does not already have the broken condition, the item releases a blast of energy that deals 1d6 electricity damage to all adjacent creatures and objects, and gains the broken condition. A ghizmer can suppress or resume the effect as a move action.


Environment any urban or space
Organization solitary, pair, glitch (3–4), disaster (5–8), or colony (5–8 plus 2 technomancers and 1 envoy)

These malignant aethership pests originate in asteroid belts and moons. Ghizmers delight in causing havoc and use their power over aetherite to cause strange and dangerous mishaps in aetherships and aethertech so that the owners abandon them—allowing the gremlins to scrap them. Most settlements have standing bounties for ghizmer gremlins, typically paying anywhere between 20 to 60 gp per head. A typical ghizmer stands just over 1 foot tall and weighs 10 pounds.
