japan and europe have shit eating vampires

russia has a half dragon firebreathing werewolf folk hero

eskimo and tibetan myth are pretty freaky.  One of their major demon women has a single leg growing from her vagina.

amerind myth has tree husbands who mate with the tribes women to produce what are probably weird half tree children...

Goddamn, mythologies all over the world are so awesome. Why can't Austrian mythology be awesome? All we have is Saint Nick being accompanied by a cadre of demons, who may or may not be the same as the demon who sits on your kid's chest, slashes their belly, and throws them into hell if they've been bad. And a dragon that was killed by tying an oversized fishhook to a bull and waiting until it bled out after swallowing the bull.

It helps if there used to be a strong tradition of animism.
Those always generate interesting critters when supplanted.

When anything can come to life, well you aren't going to lack for weird critters anytime soon.

Full-Attack 2 slams +13 melee (2d6+4, 19-20/x2)
Space 10 ft.; Reach 15 ft.

Special Qualities damage reduction 8/slashing, darkvision 120 ft., fast healing 10, flexible branches, low-light vision, plant traits, resistance to cold 10, resistance to electricity 10
Saves Fort +15, Ref +5, Will +5
Abilities Str 18, Dex 12, Con 25, Int 12, Wis 13, Cha 15
Skills Concentration +12, Intimidate +12, Knowledge(nature) +11, Listen +11, Spot +11
Feats Combat Reflexes, Improved Critical (slam), Improved GrappleB, Improved Natural Attack (slam), Improved ToughnessCW, Weapon Focus (slam)
Environment any forests or plains
Organization Solitary or 1 Jubokko plus 4-8 skeleton warriors
Challenge Rating 7
Treasure none
Alignment Usually CE
Advancement 13-30 (Large); 31-50 (Huge)
Level Adjustment --

A tree spirit that grows in areas where massive amounts of human blood were spilled on the ground, such as battlefields or execution sites. They sucked up so much of this blood that they turned into demons. These creatures develop a taste for human blood and sucks it out of any unsuspecting person it manages to snatch up.
These trees are sturdier than others, and will bleed if they are cut. They heal quickly, and it is said that their branches can be used to heal and purify people.


You notice this tree is different from any usual tree. Its leaves are blood red and its wood is much darker than normal; stuck to its trunk, you can see human bones, including skulls. You can somewhat discern a deformed face on the trunk, with its deep, yellow eyes looking directly to you.

Combat

Usually, Jubokko lies immobile among other natural trees, hiding itself from those with good eyes. As soon as it detects the presence of possible prey, it waits until it enters its reach, when it slams its target and attempts to get a hold of it by grappling it only with the branch used to attack (and taking -20 on the check), and manifesting grip of iron to increase its chance of success. Then, it keeps attacking any other creatures around, while draining the blood of its pinned prey.

Blood Suck (Ex): A Jubokko can suck blood from a living victim with its branches by making a successful grapple check. If it pins the foe, it sucks blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage each round the pin is maintained. On each such successful attack, the Jubokko gains 5 temporary hit points.
 
Flexible Branches (Ex): the Jubokko's long and malleable branches grant him +5 ft. to his reach.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Jubokko must hit with a slam attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

Psi-like Abilities: 2/day: grip of iron. Manifester level 12th.

Level Adjustment --

An insect demon that takes the form of a woman with her hands tied behind her back. It arose from the hatred of a girl named Okiku, who was falsely convicted of a crime and executed. Note that this Okiku is different from the Okiku of the Bancho Sarayashiki tale, but they are often seen as the same person.

Before you stands a monstrous vision. From the waist up, this creature looks like a naked female human, with long, black hair, while her other half is that of a yellowish worm. The arms from the humanoid half are tied behind her back.

Combat

Okiku-mushi does not join combat right at the beginning. It uses its false life to gain some more durability; grease and web are used to shut off some of its opposition, while acid breath is used against those who weren't affected with her grease and web abilities. If it knows it won't endanger itself that much, Okiku-Mushi will wade into the are she used her web spell-like ability and use its body to crush its foes.

Skills: Okiku-mushi has +8 racial bonus on climb checks, and it may take 10 on such checks, even if rushed or threatened.

Spell-like Abilities: 3/day: acid breathSpC (DC 16), false life, grease (DC 14), web (DC 15). Caster level 7th. Saves are Charisma based.

Web Immunity (Ex): Okiku-mushi are immune to the effects of the web spell.

--------------------

Little question: for Okiku-mushi's pic, which do you guys prefer?


Also, is Okiku-mushi worth its CR 4?

Edit: Added immunity to web...

Seems like they can measure up to CR 4, if they had the time to use their SLAs. The second pic works better.

In Japanese mythology, the Nue is a monster that has the head of a monkey, body of a racoon dog, limbs of a tiger, a snake for a tail, and a cry similar to a mountain thrush.

During the year 1153 in Kyoto, Emperor Konoe was being tormented by terrible nightmares every night and eventually fell ill. The source of these nightmares seemed to cove from a dark storm cloud that appeared over the imperial palace every night at two in the morning. The Emperor finally turned to Minamoto no Yorimasu for help, and Yorimasu waited atop the roof of the palace for the cloud to appear. Sure enough, at two in the morning Yorimasu sore the black cloud gather and fired an arrow into the center of it, out of which fell a dead Nue. Yorimasu then took the body and sank it in the sea.


The beast you see isn't normal, since you recognize parts of various animals in it: the body of a raccoon, the strong limbs of a tiger, a green snake as its tail, a white mane and a black, featureless face, with red eyes. As it notices you, it gets ready to roar, but, instead of a terrifying sound, you hear the sound of a thrush. Then, it jumps at you.

Combat

The nue is a powerful creature, employing its claws, poisonous snake tail and head as weapons against its foes. Generally, the nue will charge into melee combat and release its sonic scream ability as much times as possible while attacking. When it notices a spellcaster, nue will try to include one or two of its attacks against it.  

If sneaking on its target, the nue will use its cloud form ability and engulf the target within it, damaging it with its electricity and poison. It will use cloud form to escape if its foes are stronger.


Cloud Form (Su): as a full-round action that does not provokes attacks of opportunity, the nue can use this ability to assume the form of a dark cloud. In this form, the nue gains the incorporeal subtype, a fly speed of 50 ft. (good maneuverability), cannot use any of its abilities, and can enter squares occupied by creatures normally. While under this ability's effect, the nue can choose one creature within its squares to be the target of a jolt of electricity, dealing 2d6 points of electricity damage plus its poison as a standard action. The nue can end this effect as a full-round action.

Poison (Ex): Injury, Fortitude DC 19, initial and secondary damage 1d6 Dex. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Pounce (Ex): If a nue charges a foe, it can make a full attack.

Sonic Scream (Su): as a swift action, all creatures within 30 ft from the nue must make a Fortitude saving throw (DC 19) or take 4d6 points of sonic damage. A successful saving throw halves this damage. Other nue are unaffected. This ability can be used once every 1d4 rounds. This is a sonic effect. Save DC is Constitution-based.

Skills: the nue has a +8 racial bonus on  balance and jump checks.

============

Opinions on the Nue? Worried I might put too much into it, I left it like this. Should I put something else on it? All he has right now is what its myth tells...

Edit: fixed a small copy/pasta mistake...
Edit2: added pounce, and fixed the damage on nue's natural attacks...
