Creepy dolls are created by the most twisted sculptors, inspired by the darkest forces, from every edge of existence. Only the most insane artists have every created a creepy doll with a conscience of its on; the majority of dolls are injected with a soul of a once living creature or possessed by a demon.
When found by the a party the doll will mark the first who touches it. If none touch it, it marks the first character to point out how creepy it looks. Every day the marked character must save against spells or lose one point of Wisdom. For every point of wisdom drained the doll gains an additional hit point. Its eyes start glowing more and more as this occurs. When the character runs out of Wisdom the doll cuts his throat as he sleeps. The character can not be resurrected or reincarnated.
If merely thrown away the doll will appear, with its box, in one of its marks bags or backpack. If thrown into a fire the doll will go berserk and attack. If the doll is trapped inside of its box when burned there is a: 50% chance that the mark will find himself in an inter dimensional wooden room that is on fire. He will then burn to death in 5 segments; 25% chance that the doll will return in 3 days grotesquely burned; 24% chance that the doll’s corrupted soul infects a nearby newborn transforming it into a Son of Kyuss (All turned into a son immediately head in the mark’s direction, no matter how far away.); and a 1% chance it works without any problems.
when first attacked with a weapon the doll will not respond. If attacked repeatedly the doll will retaliate. The doll only attacks first if it foresees that it will be attacked and rolls on the assassination table on its first attack as a fifth level assassin. The creepy doll has a regeneration of 1 hit point per round and only takes half damage from blunt weapons. If the doll is burned at zero hit points there is a 30% chance that it returns. It receives another +10% for each body part not burned and 30% if its box is not also destroyed.
