Resembling pixies, these confusing creatures wander the streets of the Central Valley causing all kinds of confusion. They run up to people in the street and hug them while their companions pick their pockets. They have never been known to purposely hurt anyone, but as they live on mugging people, they have been known to do it with such ferocity that that occasionally happens.

The normally carefree huggermuggers ferociously attack evil creatures and unwanted intruders. They take full advantage of their invisibility and other abilities to harass and drive away opponents.

One huggermugger in ten can use mass confusion (caster level 8th) once per day.

Special Arrows (Ex)

Like heir pixie cousins, Huggermuggers sometimes employ arrows that deal no damage but can cause confusion.

Mass Confusion
