Editor's Notes

This creature's caster level doesn't equal its HD. Although a little unusual, it shouldn't have much impact on the game.

Based on its caster level and CHA bonus, it has Concentration +16.

DC Result
23 Swift as lightning, the ashmede are Hell’s judgement given corporeal form.
28 Many targets have tried to flee from Hell’s judgement only to find the ashmede can track them to any place, any land, or any plane.
33 An ashmede’s concern is primarily with the oath-breaker. Typically they will try to isolate or kidnap that target if he is likely to have the support of others.
38 The greatest weakness that the ashmede possess is that with the kyton’s winning their independence, the ashmede most often have to hunt alone or in small teams. (Though that may bring little comfort to their target!)
