OK, last week's Beast of the Week was definitely not for everyone (although with a name swap it could be a nice challenging baddie for upper level characters without the silliness). This week I go back to my mythology/legends for inspiration, and pulled up a Cherokee ogress/witch, the Spearfinger.

Spearfingers are ogre-like hags with hulking forms and scraggly, tangled black hair. They have a long bony finger on their right hands, which stabs like a lance or spear. They wear a dress made of stone (some say it is their skin that is stone), which renders them immune to attacks by normal weapons. Even magical weapons have difficulty piercing their stone armor. Spearfingers skulk around the outskirts of mountain villages or other rural communities, seeking victims - often children - to capture. They have a great love for livers, and will often eat only the liver of a slain victim. In order to draw unsuspecting victims into the wilds, they use ventriloquism, as the spell, at will. In bare, rocky terrain, they blend in with the natural habitat, allowing them to surprise on a roll of 1-4 on 1d6.
