A spherical cloud of impenetrable darkness floats toward you. As it draws near, black tendrils reach out from the cloud's opaque core.

Vasuthants are shadowy, undead abominations. These life-hungry creatures vary greatly in size and power, each one growing larger as it sucks in more life energy. Smaller vasuthants appear as shadowy clouds, while larger varieties are colossal spheres of pitch-black nothingness that can suck up nearby light, sap strength, and manipulate gravity and time. Vasuthants possess immunity or resistance to most forms of energy.

A Small vasuthant is about 2 feet in diameter. As it advances in Hit Dice and becomes larger, its diameter increases to 5 feet at Medium size, 10 feet at large size, 15 feet at Huge size, 20 feet at Gargantuan size, and 30 feet at Colossal size. Vasuthants are weightless and know no languages.
