Known first in India. these evil spirits encased in flesh are spreading. They are fond of a diet of human meat, and as masters of illusion, they can easily gain this end. Rakshasas are able to employ ESP and then create the illusion of what those who have encountered them deem friendly. They can then withhold attack until their prey can be taken off-guard. Although capable of using both magic user’s spells (up to the 3rd level) and cleric’s spells (1st level), they are not affected by spells under the 8th level. Rakshasas cannot be harmed by non-magical weapons, magical weapons below +3 do only half-damage, but hits by crossbow bolts blessed by a cleric kill them. If more than 1 rakshasa is encountered in its lair, the group will be a male and 1 or more females.
