Remember the three rules!

A pet or a monster, based on if you follow the instructions. Nobody has followed them yet. The manifestation of pure chaos -- these creatures are willing to do actions against its own self-preservation. But are near impossible to control or reason with. They act on impulse on what is the most fun.

Note: Standardized Monster Scores by Level was used to balancing most scores.

Abilities[edit]

Demon Traits: All gremlins have the following Demon Traits.

  • Immunity to electricity and poison.
  • Resistance to acid 10, cold 10, and fire 10.
  • A gremlin’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic-evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
  • Summon Gremlin (Sp): Once per day, while in water, a gremlin can attempt to summon another gremlin (of same type) with a 40% chance of success. This ability is the equivalent of a 1st-level spell.
  • However, a gremlin does not have telepathy.

Evasion (Ex): A gremlin can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If it makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, it instead takes no damage. A helpless gremlin does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Light Vulnerability (Ex): Gremlin are vulnerable to light, taking +50% more damage from all spells and effects with the descriptor, and take a -1 moral penalty to all rolls when in bright light.

Smite Law: Once per day, a gremlin may attempt to smite law with one normal melee attack. It adds its Charisma bonus to its attack roll and deals 2 extra points of damage to lawful opponents and objects. If the gremlin accidentally smites a creature or object that is not lawful, the smite has no effect, but the ability is still used up for that day. For each type after 1st, increase times per day by 1 and damage by 2 (i.e., type III is 3/day and 6 extra damage).

Spell-Like Abilities: At will—ghost sound, mage hand and prestidigitation. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

  • Improved and Greater Spell-Like Abilities: Type II and III add the following spells to their spell-like abilities.
