New Monster: Lickspittle

“Lady Hyrekia, my Master asks you to consider taking another route.” It’s black eyes

“And why should I?”

“Two reasons, actually. Well, three, but I think the first interests you very little. My Master desires it.”

“You’re correct. Continue.”

“Second, should you decide to come through my Master’s valley, you will not find the way... smooth.” The minion gave a crooked smile, and a drop of drool dangled from it’s overly large lips.

“Do you think you could really stop me?” she asked, stroking the Kaladrax’s leg bone.

The minion’s smile twitched “It wouldn’t be a pleasant situation for either my Master or for you. Additionally, nothing would be gained in the encounter.”

“That’s debatable, but continue lest the leaves turn.”

“Yes, of course.” It widened it’s grin “Thirdly, my Master would suggest that heading to the northern pass would make for a slightly longer, but more profitable trip.”

“How so?”

“Because a new castle is being built in the pass by a group of adventurers. The main keep has already been completed. One of them is apparently a wand-waver like yourself.”

Hyrekia gazed off into the distance, and her lips curved into a thin smile.

A lickspittle is an advanced form of homunculus imbued with above normal intelligence and the ability to speak. They serve as minions and servants to powerful beings, usually the one that created them. Their appearance will vary, though in general they stand as tall as a dwarf, and are thinner than a nymph, and are not quite as frail as they appear.

In addition to the above, lickspittles can possess a wide variety of abilities based either on chance or by design of their creators. To determine what ability a lickspittle possesses, roll a 1d10 and consult the chart below.
1. Invisibility
2. Blink (as a Blink Dog)
3. Silence 15'
4. Mirror Image
5. Phantasmal Force
6. Create Fog
7. Hold Person
8. Blindness
9. Locate Object
10. Dispel Magic

This little guy was inspired by Gorgonmilk’s call for some Petty Gods minions.
