Glutton Beast (Bandersnatch)
This foul looking hog-like beast stalks forward with a bewildering grace it should not possess, two disgusting ear like tentacles lifting bits of food up to its horrid maw. Unlike a bandersnatch a glutton beast only likes easy prey, and will wait and stalk its pretty waiting for the perfect moment to take advantage of a foes weakness.
Melee bite +32 (2d8+13 plus grab and ravenous starvation), 2 tentacles +32 (2d6+13/19-20 plus ravenous starvation), tail slap +27 (2d8+19/x3 plus ravenous starvation) this replaces a bandersnatch’s normal melee and ranged attacks.
Reach 15 ft. (20 ft. with tail slap and tentacles)
Special Attacks rake (2 claws, +32, 2d6+13/19-20), rend (2 tentacles, 2d6+19) this replaces a bandersnatch’s normal rake and melee attacks.
Ravenous Starvation (Su) Any creature that is hit by a glutton beasts natural attacks or strikes a bandersnatch with a melee attack, unarmed strike, or natural weapon must make a Will save (DC 29) or instantly begin to starve, taking 1d6 points of nonlethal damage and are fatigued. Nonlethal damage from starvation cannot be recovered until the character gets food or water, as needed—not even magic that restores hit points heals this damage. The creature also requires five times the normal amount of food in each 24-hour period (so a Medium creature requires 5 pounds of food, and small creature 2.5 pounds). The Save DC is Constitution-based. This is a curse effect as bestow curse thought the DC to remove the curse is increased by +5.
This ability replaces a bandersnatch’s pain, quill defense, and quills special abilities.
