Attach (Ex)

When a broodiken succeeds on a bite attack, its teeth latch on. Each round, it automatically does damage to the target as long as it can maintain its grapple. It gains a +4 bonus to checks to maintain its grapple.

Shared Rage (Su)

A broodiken cannot speak with its creator telepathically but feels strong emotions and recognizes the objects of those emotions. A creator can telepathically order broodiken to hunt for and attack individuals by sending the broodiken an image of the individual and the appropriate emotion.


Broodikens are created through the consumption of the heart of a dead broodiken. Once this “seed” is consumed, broodikens (2d4) begin to grow inside of the “mother” or creator. Nurturing the growing brood requires consuming specific muds, ashes, and plants, which cost 50 gp/day for each incubating broodiken. The incubation period requires 1 month and takes a toll on the health of the creator. During this time, the creator becomes fatigued after 4 hours without 8 hours rest.

If the creator is not a spellcaster, a spellcaster who meets the requirements below must supervise the incubation and birth. Most spellcasters birth the broodiken using a dagger before the broodiken tears its way out. A “mother” can only control one brood of broodiken at a time. Even beginning to incubate a second brood causes the first brood to become furiously jealous and turn on its own creator.
