This article covers the species of velstrac. For the troll diviners, see augurs.

An augur is the most common type of velstrac on the Shadow Plane.[1]

Appearance

Unlike other more humanoid velstracs, augurs have been mutilated into a sphere of bloody flesh, leaving only a single eye exposed within a tangle of metal plate armor. Most are a foot in diameter and weigh 30 pounds.[1][2]

Abilities

Augurs are stealthy and capable of magical flight, but also roll themselves around. Lacking limbs, they manipulate objects through magic. Their single eye's piercing gaze is especially unnerving.[1]

Ecology

Like other velstracs, augurs are native to the Shadow Plane. An experienced lawful evil spellcaster can also summon an augur as a familiar.[3] Some augurs even serve as apprentices to or students of mortals.[4] They view bloodletting as an artform to be appreciated and enjoy being offered freshly plucked eyeballs from living creatures.[5]

On Golarion

Joyful Things can summon an augur velstrac per day,[6] and evil spellcasters—including followers of Zon-Kuthon[7] or divinities of Hell[8]—who can summon creatures can choose to summon an augur.

Augur velstracs serve as sentinels at Edammera's Folly, a mysterious tower in western Nidal near the Usk River's fork.[9]
