Rasmukkan, the Beast-Blade Solitary, Large, Magical, Intelligent, Hoarder, Planar A steel sword tempered in blood (b[2d12]+3 damage 4 piercing) 16 HP 4 armor Close, Reach, Messy Special Qualities: Leonine Grace and Power
The lionesque body of this demon, yet with its scales and cracked flesh - its white pupiless eyes and eternal smirk, it all moves with an eerie grace. Aeons of honing and training have lead for a singular determination to shatter the hopes and dreams of the mighiest warriors that it might fall upon, and adding insult to injury by adding their souls to its collection. None have ever managed to bind nor command Rasmukkan, for it is ancient, and its steel blade has tasted the flesh of many - the pommel stone ready for the soul of any it has decided that it has defeated. So powerful is its collection of defeated souls that some significant villains are said to be amongst its trophies. Rumour has it that Rasmukkan seeks one thing beyond preying upon those that think they are skilled at arms, or following its heart for love and lust (even a peerless swordsdemon still feels the need for companionship after all), it is said that it seeks an ancient artifact from when it was young. Possessing of many names, one of which is the Soul Crucible - tales tell of its impossible powers... let us hope that Rasmukkan never finds it, and simply gives into its baser urges...

Hukai’po Horde, Divine, Amorphous Archaic weaponry (d6+2 damage 1 piercing) 12 HP 1 armor Close, Ignores Armor, Near Special Qualities: Undead nature
Night Marchers are ghostly apparitions of a band of beings who move with purpose to the beat of primitive pounding drums. Some say they are armed spirit warriors en route to or from battle, toting archaic weaponry and clothed in decorated helmets and cloaks. Other accounts tell of high-ranking ali'i (ruler) spirits being guided to places of high importance or to welcome new warriors to join in battle. Perhaps these restless souls are looking to reclaim rightful territory, replay a battle gone awry, or avenge their own deaths. Some say the Night Marchers are searching methodically for an entrance into the next world. Night Marchers are said to roam through very specific locations and are often recognized by their raised torches and repeated olis, or chants. Although there have been a few scattered reports of daytime marches, these apparitions appear to be most active at night and are said to march on certain nights designated by the moon. And although the Night Marchers allegedly float a few inches off the ground, some local accounts tell of seeing mysterious footprints in their path after they have passed. - To- Hawaii.com Instinct: To walk a trail

Hidebehind Solitary, Magical, Stealthy, Devious, Planar Shadow Cougar Claws (d8 damage) 12 HP 4 armor Close, Far
The Hidebehind is a nocturnal fearsome critter from American folklore that preys upon humans that wander the woods, and was blamed for the disappearances of early loggers when they failed to return to camp. As its name suggests, the Hidebehind is noted for its ability to conceal itself. When an observer attempts to look directly at it, the creature quickly hides behind an object or the observer and therefore cannot be directly seen. The Hidebehind uses this ability to stalk human prey without being observed and to attack without warning. Their victims, including lumberjacks and others who frequent the forests, are then dragged back to the creature's lair to be devoured. The creature subsists chiefly upon the intestines of its victim and has a severe aversion to alcohol, which is therefore considered a sufficient repellent Instinct: To bring mortals to its realm
- Grabbed from nowhere and dragged there too.
- Where did it go ? In a blink it can hide anywhere.

- Back to the lair, the beast rips its victims out of their plane of existance and drops them in a pocket dimension.
- Calls from the future - the hide behind can call out in voices that don't yet exist.
