Basically I'm going to be using a lot of undead monsters in my next few adventures and I wanted something a bit more creative than the usual zombies, skeletons, and ghosts. I'm just going to put them here for critique and for other people who may want to use them. There's just one for now, but I'm working on more. Stay tuned.
I really like the idea of a forced "feign death". Perhaps you should give other conditions for such a thing to resolve though (through the kiss of a prince/princess, a vow of love, an act of sacrifice), but that would be a plot hook in itself!
I like this one a lot. The Tome of Beasts is another great resource to grab monsters that aren't the mundane. I used a Putrid Haunt that is a zombie that vomits leeches onto someone next to it, and when the leeches do dmg the zombies get that amount in temp hp.
Haven't used them yet, largely due to a lack of campaigns in the region and the setting being ~1 year old, but feel free to use and/or modify my shriekers for your games. On one condition: you share all the sordid details of how the PCs bleed from their ears after facing them!
I personally recommend making use of the banshee cry from Mass Effect 3 to really creep your players out if you choose to use the shriekers.
