Monster Manual III
In addition to the special abilities and qualities inherent in a younger specimen (Night Twist), an ancient night twist has even deadlier powers and spell-like abilities in its arsenal. This creature uses its spell-like abilities before resorting to its powerful slam attack. The save DCs (DC 28) for an ancient night twist's death curse, despair song, and wind blast are adjusted for its higher Charisma score and increased Hit Dice.
Spell-Like Abilities: 5/day - phantasmal killer (DC 20); 3/day - blight (DC 21), circle of death (DC 22), deeper darkness, entangle (DC 17), fear (DC 20), insanity (DC 23); 1/day - weird (DC 25). Caster level 20th.
