Combat

Belgois like to sneak up on an encampment, then use attraction on the bells they wear to lure guards away from the safety of the camp. They then either attack the now defenseless camp or walk the guards into an ambush.

Constitution Drain (Su): Creatures hit by a belgoi's claw attack succeed on a DC 12 Fortitude save or take 1d3 points of Constitution damage. The save DC is Constitution based. Unlike undead with this ability, belgois don't gain temporary hit points when they drain constitution.

Psi-like Abilities (Sp): At will - attraction (+6 bonus on interaction checks, DC 14*)' 1/day - ego whip (DC 13), psionic blast (DC 14), Manifester level 5th. The save DCs are Charisma based.

* Included augmentation for the belgoi's manifester level.

Belgoi Society

Belgois eke out their meager survival by eating the foes they ambush. They have no stomach for a fair fight, and the entire tribe usually moves on when merchant patrols or soldiers from a nearby city-states threaten them. They are nomadic and don't keep anything they can't carry.

Because belgois are such notorious raiders of small villages and trade caravans, they're usually attacked on sight by armies and militias that guard smaller settlements. No dragon-king tolerates a belgoi tribe within five days travel of his city.
