Monday Monster: Mother, Maiden, and Crone Pt 1: Mother

Posted by

The trio of hags known collectively as “Mother, Maiden, and Crone” are a powerful covey of terrors in the service of a great and sinister evil. In my Revenge of the Giants game, they were actually at the front of an army of giants who invaded the campaign city, but the giants little knew that the hags actually had a greater agenda of their own. While the giants were looking to conquer, the hags were only interested in slaughter and sacrifice and were channeling souls to Acererak, the demilich of the Tomb of Horrors.

The three hags are Mother, an annis matron; The Cold Woman, an annis hag druid with affinity for frost (the “maiden”); and The Keening Crone, a green hag bard. These stats were created before the official Pathfinder conversion for annis hags, so it’s my own writeup. I haven’t compared my stats to the official version, but I would guess they’re fairly close and either one should work.

  1. Might you have versions of Cain and Abel as well? Masters of the Tomb of Mysteries and the Tomb of Secrets?
