Rend (Ex): A shrieking hag that hits a single target with both claws latches onto the opponent's body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 2d4+10 points of damage.
Shriek (Su): Three times per day, the shrieking hag can give voice to a terrible, maddening shriek. Any creature within 60 feet of the hag takes 2d6 points of damage and is also confused for 2d6 rounds. A successful Fortitude save (DC 19) negates the confusion effect and reduces the damage by half. The save is Constitution-based.
Spell-Like Abilities: At will - change self, dancing lights, ghost sound, gust of wind, shocking grasp, wind wall; 3/day - charm person, control winds, improved invisibility, lightning bolt, see invisibility, suggestion; 1/day-charm monster, great shout, polymorph self, whirlwind; 1/tenday - control weather. These abilities are as the spells cast by a 12th-level sorcerer (save DC 12 + spell level).
Shrieking hags prefer to deceive, entice, and charm travelers into their lairs, using their spell-like abilities to split up parties and draw a way a single chosen victim. Should that fail, they resort to a furious assault from the night sky, shrieking and blasting their foes with wind. They reserve their physical attacks for dealing with solitary victims.
