Reign of Pharaohs
This mummified house cat – dried , filled with sand, and bound in linen wrappings – is more than a mere pet. Buried alongside its deceased master, the mummified guardian protects and preserves the corpse it is interred with and acts as a guardian against grave robbers and looters. It also infuses the corpse with magical energy that slows the body’s natural rate of decay.
The mummified guardian creates a magical ward with the sarcophagus it is buried with. If the sarcophagus is opened, any creature with 5 Hit Dice or fewer within 20 feet of the open sarcophagus is overcome by a feeling of dread and must succeed at a DC 13 Will save or be frightened for 3 rounds. On a successful save, a creature is instead shaken for 1 round. This ability functions only once. Once triggered, the mummified guardian retains only its sanctify corpse ability.
