Babble (Su)

An allip constantly mutters to itself, creating a hypnotic effect. All sane creatures within 60 feet of the allip must succeed at a DC 12 Will save or be fascinated for 2d4 rounds.

While a target is fascinated, the allip can approach it without breaking the effect, but an attack by the allip does end the effect. Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by the same allip’s babble for 24 hours. This is a sonic, mind-affecting compulsion effect.

Madness (Su)

Anyone targeting an allip with a using a spell or effect that makes direct contact with its tortured mind takes 1d4 points of Wisdom damage.

Touch of Madness (Su)

As a standard action, an allip can make a melee touch attack (with a +4 bonus on the attack roll) targeting EAC that deals 1d4 Wisdom damage (DC 12 Will negates) on a successful hit. A critical hit deals 1d4 Wisdom damage and 1 Wisdom drain (instead of double Wisdom damage). With each successful attack, an allip gains 5 temporary Hit Points.


Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or haunt (3–6)

Those who fall prey to madness and take their own lives sometimes find themselves lost on the path to the afterlife, trapped in a state between life and death. These unfortunates, known as allips, suffer from the violent and incurable insanity they faced in life and take out their terror, confusion, and rage upon the living. They reach out to those they encounter—possibly in wrath, but also perhaps oblivious to their own insane nature—spreading the psychoses that led to their own untimely deaths.

Allips often seek to harm those who played a part in causing their mad, unholy condition.

When faced with such foes, an allip ignores all other targets that confront it in favor of its hated enemies, attacking them until its tormentors have been forced into a vacant stupor. Alas, such vengeance does not put the allip to rest, but simply serves to further fuel its madness as it finds itself trapped in a world now no longer even holding the satisfaction of vengeance.
