Fox’s Cunning — Creeper! Aw man

Did you know we have a Discord? There we discuss Pathfinder and Starfinder, share memes and cute pictures, or just gush over anime and video games. We also have a Know Direction Minecraft server you join through the discord featured on last week’s Twitch stream! I’ve been having a blast building with our staff and fans, and I hope I can maybe whet your appetite with this little shameless plug, including a secret preview to an upcoming product. And who knows, maybe I’ll go ahead and cover the rest of the Mobs once we survive the upcoming onslaught of new books.

Explosion [reaction] When the creeper dies, it explodes, dealing 4d6 fire damage to each creature in a 20-foot emanation (DC 19 basic Reflex save). Any creature that fails or critically fails this Reflex saving throw gains any condition the creeper had before it died.

Speed 25 feet

Countdown [one-action] If adjacent to one or more creatures with the ability to gain Hero Points, the creeper begins to hiss. Immediately following the next action taken by any of those creatures, if the creeper is still adjacent to one or more creatures, the creeper explodes and dies. If the creature is stunned or slowed, the creeper explodes at the start of the creature’s turn.

Swift Creep The creeper can move its full Speed when it Sneaks.

Supercharge If a creeper would be damaged by electricity, it instead becomes a charged creeper, gains -4 circumstance penalty to Stealth. While easier to see, the creeper’s explosive power is greatly enhanced. Replace its explosion reaction with the following:
Explosion [reaction] When the charged creeper dies, it explodes, dealing 6d6 fire damage to each creature in a 40-foot emanation (DC 19 basic Reflex save). Any creature that fails or critically fails this Reflex saving throw gains any condition the charged creeper had before it died. Treat this as a death effect.



The leaf-covered creeper skittles on its tiny four legs silently across any terrain, moving unerringly toward any heroes unlucky enough to cross its path. Many great legends have been cut short by the click-hiss of this mysterious aberration, its only purpose in life seems to be pure destruction. Some scholars speculate that the explosion is how it reproduces, launching spores in every direction. Some believe the creature is attracted to beings of great destiny, perhaps a villainous foil unleashed upon the world whose legacy has outlasted its original creator.
