Skeeter Man, Unique Entity

It was just as I had read. It appeared as a large man in tattered clothes. Its jacket had two vertical slits in the back, from which its wings emerged. The bats swirling around it blocked most of the damage from Dawson’s shotgun. Thankfully, my Invisible Blade spell bypassed them. Between that, and the little bit of damage which made it through from Dawson, we finally put it down. The streams of bats were very distracting but, thankfully, they caused little harm.

The origin of Skeeter Man is unknown. It may be the result of a sorcerous experiment, a curse, a joke made by Nyarlathotep, or simply something which flaked off the body of the Cthulhu Mythos in general.

It appears as a large man, dressed in shabby clothing. However, it has bulbous, multi-segmented eyes made up of thousands of lenses, as well as a large proboscis. It is generally somewhat obscured by several four inch long mosquitos which whirl around it at astonishing speed.

SPECIAL POWERS 

Skeeter Armor: At any time, Skeeter Man will have up to a dozen Skeeters (see separate entry below) swirling around it at a blurring speed. These act as ablative armor, adding 7 points of armor per Skeeter.

This protects against all physical damage, as well as general harm such as fire (including magical), but not against spells which explicitly target Skeeter Man, such as Shriveling.

Once per turn, as its action, Skeeter Man may summon 1D6+4 Skeeters, though no more than 12 will accompany it at any given time. This limit does not count against any currently in combat.

Skeeter Attack: Once per turn, as its action, Skeeter Man may direct any number of the currently swarming Skeeters (see separate entry below) at its foes. They lack the intelligence to distinguish which enemies are more dangerous than others.

Anyone engaged with Skeeters suffers a penalty die for all skill and characteristic rolls.

Skeeters, very, very large mosquitos

The mosquito man thing kept flinging these damn things at us, but it never ran out of them. They hardly did any damage, but they were annoying as hell.–Justine Keystone, Team Leader, Strike Team 1.
