Special Abilities

Innocuous Laughter (Su) A laughing kerkops can spend a mythic surge as a free action, forcing all sapient creatures that hear the laughter to make a Will saving throw (DC 16). Creatures that fail their save stop being hostile toward kerkops present for one round (and not treating the kerkops as an enemy for purpose of effects and attacks of opportunity) giving the kerkops the time to explain reasons for their laughter. If the kerkops provides reason that the affected creature finds genuinely amusing, the creature's attitude improves by two steps (until further changed by kerkops actions). The laughter is a mind-affecting sonic charm effect. Providing explanation for the laughter is language-dependent but the cessation of the hostility is not. The saving throw DC is Charisma-based.

Poking Stick A kerkops use elastic rod that inflicts nonlethal damage.

Swift Steal (Su) A kerkops can spend a mythic surge as a swift action to move up to its speed without provoking attacks of opportunity and attempt a single steal maneuver or Sleight Of Hand skill check at any point along the move.

Vulnerable To Bonds (Su) A captured and bound kerkops cannot free itself, it has to be released by the captor or another creature if left unattended by the captor.

Kerkopes (pl.) are mischievous but mostly harmless monkey-spirits that love to play tricks on other beings. They occasionally steal valuable or interesting items to hide them around the region they haunt. They are known to find many mundane things hilarious and their simple minded glee is often contagious, spreading to witnesses of their jests.
