Husk Doll are created by witches, witch-doctors, and shaman. They are blessed with sentient life from the evil spirits of forlorn places. Created from the husk of corn cob, these Husk Dolls are created in large batches with the purpose of swarming larger foes with their miniature knives. Husk Doll stand no more then 1' tall and weigh roughly a 1 lb.


Combat

  • Husk Dolls attack with their knives which do 1 point of damage. Each successful hit also causes wounds to bleed for an additional 1 point of damage each subsequent round. Bleed damage can be stop by spending a round bandaging wounds or any curative magic. Bleed damage from multiple Husk Dolls are cumulative.

The Husk Dolls will swarm the victim from all sides and the attack, damage, and bleed value will be based on one attack with increased potency.
