Monster Templates

Fiendish (CR +0 or +1)

Pathfinder RPG Bestiary pg. 294
Acquired/Inherited Template Acquired
Simple Template Yes
Usable with Summons Yes

Creatures with the fiendish template live in the Lower Planes, such as the Abyss and Hell, but can be summoned using spells such as summon monster and planar ally. A fiendish creature’s CR increases by +1 only if the base creature has 5 or more HD. A fiendish creature’s quick and rebuild rules are the same.

Rebuild Rules: Senses gains darkvision 60 ft.; Defensive Abilities gains DR and energy resistance as noted on the table; SR gains SR equal to new CR +5; Special Attacks smite good 1/day as a swift action (adds Cha bonus to attack rolls and damage bonus equal to HD against good foes; smite persists until target is dead or the fiendish creature rests).
