New Monster: Jak-Arakit

Allianora looked through the open door, and found Feris sitting on the orange rug with a top hat wedged firmly onto his head, and on hand holding the brim. "Feris? What's with the hat?"

"I found it."

"Found what?"

"The demon that killed everyone in the last village."

"Rathgar! Nimble!" she yelled down the hall as she drew her holy symbol and mace.

A loud thump, the jingle of chain mail, and the crashing of the door to the adjacent room immediately preceded Rathgar's appearance.

"Where is it?" she demanded

Feris sat unmoving "Trapped. In the hat."

Nimble popped his head around the corner. "Well, what do we do with it?"

"I don't know... maybe get it out of the hat and then kill it?" Feris suggested.

Jak-Arakits are nighmare beings spawned from the fever dreams of the dying. Anyone viewing a Jak-Arakit must immideately make a save vs. spells or flee until it is out of sight. As Jak-Arakit are usually faster then their victims, the chase usually ends with the victim collapsing from exhaustion or death long before the Jak-Arakit ever touches them. In actual combat, the Jak-Arakit will attempt to use its two claws on a single target. If both hits are successful the claws will cause maximum damage and the Jak-Arakit may make an immediate bite attack which causes 2d8 damage.

Once released upon the world they will seek to spread as much fear and discord as possible before retreating to a safe hiding place. Jak-Arakit may shrink themselves down to fit inside of nearly any container of jug size or larger. They are inexplicably drawn to magic hats and helms. If discovered, they can be safely drawn out by hand, as long as the person drawing them out doesn't suffer from the fear effect and continues to hold on.
