Ferocity Dummies are sword practice targets who have awakened with vengeful anger after decades of bashes, slashes, and pokes. The accumulated hatred leaves residual psychic anger that manifest into sentient beings with the sole purpose of murder and mayhem. A Ferocity Dummy is made of wood, canvas, and straw with a blade in each hand. They have torn themselves from their base and fly through crumbling dungeons with murderous intent.


  • Ferocity Dummies feed off hatred, each successful hit against the dummy fuels its anger. For each hit the Ferocity Dummy gains a +1 bonus to damage. The damage is cumulative. If the dummy is hit four times in a round, it receives a +4 to damage on its next attacks. The damage bonus resets to zero if a round passes and dummy is not damaged. 
  • Once per round the Ferocity Dummy can perform a counter attack on its opponents turn. If successfully attacked, the dummy can immediately strike back with one attack.
  • Ferocity Dummies are immune to mind-affecting spells.

The Sacred Flame Monastery has gone quiet. The martial monks years of practice has awakened dreadful anger from their mundane targets.
This dungeon room is an armory filled with rusted weapons and cobwebs. In the center of the room are a half dozen Ferocity Dummies silently waiting to draw blood.
