All Glory to the Hypnotoad!

The highly intelligent hypnotoad appears as a large amphibian measuring about two feet long. It has large oscillating multicolored eyes, and it emits a droning hum when it uses its psychic power. Its eyes glow all the time. A hypnotoad’s mesmerizing gaze affects a cone that’s 30 feet long and 30 feet wide at its farthest reach. All living creatures with a nervous system caught in the cone must make a saving throw or become fascinated and stand gazing at the hypnotoad for 1d6 minutes.

During this time, a hypnotoad can plant powerful suggestions in as many as 3d6 hypnotized creatures at once. (All creatures must be subjected to the same suggestion, and they gain a saving throw to resist the suggestion.) A hypnotoad’s suggestions can compel even directly self-destructive actions, but affected creatures are permitted a new saving throw with a +4 bonus in this case. Very reasonable suggestions may cause the saving throw to be made at a penalty (such as -1, -2, et cetera), at the GM’s discretion.
