Ice Daemon d20 Minions Conversions


Large monstrous humanoid (cold)

These are the legendary abominable snowmen, Sasquatch or Bigfoot.  Although immensely strong and therefore dangerous to humans, the yeti are none the less seen here to be herbivorous.

These creatures are known to keep company with animals, wolves in particular. The “wolves” associated with yeti are not Earth wolves at all, but rather a similar species native to the yeti’s ice dimension. The yeti have few goals of their own, and are see here as servants of more powerful ice beings. They are comfortable in temperatures below 5 Celsius, but can survive in temperatures up to 25 for short periods of time. They are as comfortable in barely freezing weather as in biting temperatures of -40 or lower. In fact, they grow more active at the lower temperatures. Its white fur allows the yeti to blend easily into snowy environments. This natural camouflage allows the yeti to attack by surprise even in dear weather and on moderately flat ground.

Original Traits

Custom Traits – replaces Improved Grab or Constrict

Cold Touch (Ex): A touch from the Yeti’s hand, which glows with blue energy, disrupts the life force of living creatures not from the cold dimension. Each touch channels cold dimensional energy that deals 1d6 points of damage. The touched creature also takes 1 point of Strength damage unless it makes a successful Fortitude saving throw. The yeti can use this melee touch attack up to three (3) times (+1 per advancement). Animals must make a successful Will saving throw or flee.

Ice Wolves

(A tweaked version of a Dire Wolf or Winter Wolf)

These creatures resemble Earth’s arctic wolves, with a few subtle differences.

This small creature is native to an as-yet unexplored ice dimension. It cannot survive long in temperatures much above freezing, and for this reason needs to install a network of heat exchangers if it is dominate Earth. Though it has had immense success due to its immense empathic powers, it is not equipped for mass
combat. For this reason, it employs its massive slave, the Ice Wyrm.


Breath Weapon (Su)

This effect imposes a -4 penalty to AC and a -2 penalty on attack rolls for 3 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +1 racial bonus.

Spell-Like Abilities

{Converting these to d20 is a little tricky but I would just wing it in play} The Ice Daemon has the skills Dimension Walk, Human Empathy, Project Thought, Project Emotion, Willpower Drain, Animal Empathy, Dissolution, and Darkling Empathy at its Empathy level (16). It will use these skills to cover its retreat by forcing PCs to block other. PCs (Project Thought) and hiding itself behind feelings of confusion (Project Emotion). When necessary, it will use Willpower Drain to soften any resistance. It will only use Dissolution or Dimension Walk as last resorts.

A Ice Wyrm cannot burrow through stone, but can manage ice and frozen earth. When moving through such hard materials it leaves behind a usable tunnel about 5 feet in diameter. A Ice Wyrm is about 40 feet long, 5 feet in diameter, and weighs about 8,000 pounds.


Ice Wyrm lurk under the snow, waiting for prey to come near. They begin an attack with a trill and then set upon helpless prey with their bite.

Trill (Su)

A Ice Wyrm can emit a noise that forces its prey to stand motionless. This sonic mind-affecting compulsion affects all creatures other than Ice Wyrms within a 100-foot radius. Creatures must succeed on a DC 17 Will save or be stunned for as long as the worm trills and for 1d4 rounds thereafter, even if they are attacked. However, if attacked or violently shaken(a full-round action), a victim is allowed another saving throw. Once a creature has resisted or broken the effect, it cannot be affected again by that same Ice Wyrm’s trill for 24 hours. The effect’s caster level is 14th. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Cold (Ex)

A Ice Wyrm’s body generates intense cold, causing opponents to take an extra 1d8 points of cold damage every time the creature succeeds on a bite attack. Creatures attacking a Ice Wyrm unarmed or with natural weapons take this same cold damage each time one of their attacks hits.

Breath Weapon (Su>)

30-foot cone, once per hour, damage 9d6 cold, Reflex DC 18 half. Opponents held motionless by the Ice Wyrm’s trill get no saving throw. The save DC is Constitution-based.


*A Ice Wyrm, due to its coloration and its affinity for burying itself in the snow, has a +10 racial bonus on Hide checks in its native environment.
