With the scrabble of hundreds of bony claws, a mass of tiny skeletal creatures surges across the floor, with pinpoints of red light gleaming in their empty eye sockets.

A bone rat swarm is a mass of undead skeletal rats. Though individually such creatures would pose little risk, in great numbers they can strip a creature clean in short order.


A bone rat swarm seeks to engulf and devour any living prey it encounters. A bone rat swarm deals 1d6 points of damage to any creature whose space it occupies at the end of its move.

Distraction (Ex): Any living creature that begins its turn with a bone rat swarm in its space must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
