And that new monster, the angurboda, what’s her story? Based on the ogress wife of Loki in Norse mythology, the mother of Hel, Fenris Wolf, and the Midgard Serpent, the angurboda is one bad mama in every since of the word. Treacherous and tricksy, she may feign to fall in love with you or at least pretend long enough to satisfy her lusts, stealing the seed of every creature she comes across to sire her own monstrous brood. Brought to lovely and lethal life by Michael Jaecks, the angurboda is a monstrous matriarch the likes of which will leave your PCs running for their mamas.

You be good to mama, and mama be good to you...

You be good to mama, and mama be good to you…

And just to whet your appetite (or make you lose it), here is just one of the abilities the angurboda has to go do that voodoo that she do so well:

 

Mother of Monsters (Su) Once per day an angurboda can gestate and give birth to one or two magical beasts, monstrous humanoids, dire animals, or humanoids with the giant subtype. This process takes 10 minutes and functions similarly to a planar ally spell, allowing her to call a single creature with up to 12 Hit Dice or two identical creatures whose combined Hit Dice do not exceed 12. Alternatively, the angurboda can birth up to 4 Medium-sized humanoids of the same type with the ogrekin template. These creatures are automatically helpful and willing to perform one task taking up to 1 hour on the angurboda’s behalf, but after this time they become indifferent to her, though she may retain their services through persuasion or magical control.

            The creatures an angurboda gestates and births with this ability must be Large or smaller, and are created with the young simple template. She may choose to birth creatures fully grown, without the young template; however, such creatures are blighted within and gain one permanent negative level every 24 hours (no saving throw), perishing when their negative levels equal their Hit Dice as their body is consumed by necrotic tumors induced by their too-rapid growth.
