1d10 Random Demonic Statue Weird Encounter Table For Your Old School Campaigns

Trapped within stone by ancient gods before the coming of man, there are demonic things and essences within the wastelands that watch,wait, scheme, and sometimes escape the bounds of the Abyss beyond the pale of man. These ancient demonic things hunger for the very soul stuff of mankind and feed off of anyone they encounter. They yern to be free from their prisons of stone and rigid horror trapped in forms leering the universe but unable to escape. Some wander wraith like across the dimensions locked within their forms until the stars are right. Others guard ancient and fabulous treasures put there by gods of Law & Order to observe the time and tide of violence and depravity. Some can loose the bounds of life and slip back into the local space and time continuum but only for a limited stint until once more the powers of law call them back to their prisons of stone and flesh. They are found in the deepest parts of the wastelands watching from behind a snarling mask of fangs, tusks, and even masks of horrific aspect. Anyone seeing one for the first time less then level three must make a save or shiver in instinctive wrongness of these things of demonic fury.
Should they spy a mortal whose flesh and form are weak. They will attack with 3d6 tendrils and pull the poor victim to themselves where the fool must save vs death or switch places with the demonic thing. The victim will find himself helpless and drained of energy as they drop a level enabling the demonic horror freedom to walk the planes for 1d6 months of unrestricted freedom to wreck havoc and violence.
