Bog maids usually draw upon their shape change ability to alter its physical form to appear as a beautiful young female elf, half-elf, or other humanoid. Then, they grapple their opponents in what seems a lustful embrace, proceeding to bite into them with their rancid maws.

Rancid Bite (Ex): The rancid bite of a bog maid deals 2d6+1 damage. In addition, a DC 18 Fortitude save is required to avoid 1d4 temporary Con damage.


Shape Change (Ex): Bog maids have the natural ability to change their shape into other humanoid forms, typically choosing a beautiful maiden of a humanoid species.

Swamp Walk (Ex): Because of their innate knowledge of the terrain, bog maids can move at normal speed through swamp, marsh, and bog.

Thanks to Rakehell over at Tailslap for the 4e version of this creature!
