#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 8, Room 7

Moving on in this area, the party comes to a wider chamber. 

Room 7

Lurking in the shadows is a true horror.  A skeletal horror, covered in blood with glowing red eyes.

It appears undead, but it is a Babu Demon. 

Babau Demon

These 7’ tall demons have ebony flesh that clings closely to their skeleton, appearing almost like a leathery corpse. They have a single curving horn that emerges from the back of their heads. 

Armor Class: -3 [22]
Hit Dice: 7+7 (45 hp)
Attacks:  2 claws (1d4+3 x2), 1 horn (1d6+3) or 1 weapon +3

Saving Throws: D8 W9 P10 B10 S12 (7)
Morale: 8
Alignment: Chaotic
XP: 2,050

Babau demons prefer to attack with weapons from a distance when possible and have STR 19 which grants bonuses to attacks and damage with some weapons.

  • Glowing Eyes: Any creature within 20’ that looks into a babau’s glowing red eyes must succeed in a saving throw versus spells or be affected as if from a ray of enfeeblement. 
  • Slimy Skin: A slimy red jelly coats the babe’s skin when in combat, reducing damage by 50% from cutting and stabbing weapons.
  • Thief Skills: These demons have the abilities of a thief of 9th level. 
  • Weapon Damage: Babau suffers damage from ordinary weapons and +2 damage from weapons of iron.
  • Spell-Like Abilities: The babau can use the following at will.
    • darkness 10’ radius
    • dispel magic
    • fear (as the wand of fear, by touch)
    • fly
    • levitate
    • polymorph self
    • heat metal.
