Special Traits

  • Woeful. When a vile limb causes damage to a living target with an attack, that target must make a DC 10 Woe saving throw. The target takes 1d4 spiritual damage on a failed save, or half as much (minimum 1) on a successful saving throw. Once a specific target has taken spiritual damage due to this trait, it is immune to further spiritual damage from this particular vile limb for 24 hours.

Actions

  • Swift Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4+2) piercing damage.

About

A vile limb can be any piece of a body large enough to pose a threat. Typically this is an arm or a leg, but a vile limb could be a severed hand or even a rolling head. A vile limb moves by using its muscles and the constantly cracking bones within the limb, resulting in a serpentine length of muscle with shards of bone protruding through its skin.
