Special Abilities

Dimension Mastery (Ex) After being affected by dimension door, a dimensional shambler can take actions normally. In addition, the shambler can attempt a Mysticism check to ignore effects that prevent planar travel (DC = 10 + the level or CR of the effect or its creator, whichever is higher). If successful, the shambler ignores the effect for 1 round.

Planar Mastery (Ex) When a dimensional shambler uses plane shift, it does so as a full action during which it shimmers and fades to transparency. The shambler can arrive in a specific location if it succeeds at a DC 20 Mysticism check. In addition, a dimensional shambler can take one unwilling creature with it when it uses plane shift, provided the shambler has the target grappled or pinned. The creature can negate the plane shift effect on itself with a successful DC 16 Will save.

Resist Conjuration (Ex) Dimensional shamblers are immune to effects that have the calling or summoning descriptors. A shambler can sense when it has been targeted by such an effect and use plane shift to travel to the location of the effect’s creator.


Dimensional shamblers are lean, humanoid-shaped beings that move as if intoxicated. They are relentless planar explorers. Violence and abduction define their interactions with other creatures.
