  • Siege Monster. The rakasa batu deals double damage to objects and structures.

About

These mysterious entities first appeared along the Amber Roads shortly before the Confluence, blocking certain passages in an attempt to curb the destruction soon to wreak havoc across the interplanar transitway.

Their efforts were for naught, but the creatures found spiritual kinship with dwarves, in particular the zwerc—rakasa batu emissaries can now be found in virtually every one of their pocket demiplanes and, as time passes, more and more frequently in the endless caves of Aventyr. Encountering one of these creatures in the Underworld can be a dangerous proposition; they know much about the world around them and the veils between planes, but those who raise its ire can quickly find themselves buried underneath stone.

Rakasa batu are generally 13 feet tall or larger, but can weigh between 300 and 6000 pounds.
