A greater barghest is a barghest who has shed its skin and grown in power after feeding on the corpses of mortals. They often seek tribes of goblins, or other such creatures, to rule over like cults.[1]


Like their common counterparts, a greater barghest is a fiendish shapechanger resembling a cross of goblin and wolf. They can be told apart from common barghests by being significantly larger in size.[1]


A barghest becomes a greater barghest by feeding on the corpses of non-evil mortals over a period of four months, after which it sheds its skin and assumes its greater form.[1]

A greater barghest retains all of the abilities it possessed before its growth, now combined with increased strength, speed, intellect, and resistance to damage. Beyond that, they also gain new magical abilities, such as increasing the strength or size of multiple allies at once, or turning them invisible.[1]
