Spellcasting: Malyx are cultists of the King in Yellow, the Unspeakable One and/or the Old Ones from Lovecraft's stories. Their dark faith grants them the ability to know divine spells like a sorcerer and cast them like an adept. use the sorcerer's known spell table in the core book for how many spells they know and the Adepts spells per day table for how many they can cast using the number of hit dice a given Malyx has as its level. Spells are drawn primarily from the Adept Spell list but can import spells from other lists as the GM feels is appropriate. Additional hit dice give a Malyx more skills, hit points as an aberrations and spells (known as a sorcerer of the same level and times per day as an adept) but does not increase its size. Other. Base Atk is as listed for Aberations in the Bestiary. They are proficient in all simple weapons and light armor but not with shields.
Telepathy: Malyx can communicate with any other creature within 50 ft of it that has a language. It is possible to address multiple creatures at once telepathically, although maintaining a conversation is as difficult as trying to conversate with multiple beings verbally and listening to them as well. Malyx communication often takes the form of a rebus in the mind of those it contacts.
A malyx appears as a man sized monstrosity drawn from the nightmares of many and given mortal form by the will of intelligences best left alone by mortal minds.
Author's Note: Something weird I came up with in a day dream for something I wanted to do. It was so weird I thought I'd share it.
