Kiss of death? Sounds like a succubus, but then these beauties drain energy "only".

I have to agree with Frank on Kyuss / Qotsa. Two of my players and myself are big fans of their music, in fact we're going to their show next month when they play in Germany.

Breach takes round 2! It is indeed the Dune Stalker. I'll try to come up with #3 tomorrow.

Frank, are we supposed to look things up, or not?  Do you care?  I've got a few guesses in mind, but wanted to check before I resorted to the books (I didn't look up Sons of Kyuss, that was memory). :D

Well, looking things up is fine with me. It would be hard to enforce that anyways!
I'm trying to go on memory myself, but I will probably look up the next 3, or at least reference the question once I think of it.
So Gro has 1, and Breach has 1. A tiebreaker would be interesting.....

Mine is unquestionably vampiric. I constantly feel tired and drained.

The wife is one of the most evil and insidious beings in the universe. Originally created by the gods, these creatures were introduced to Earth to inflict pain and suffering on an unsuspecting Mankind. They vary greatly in appearance and size, and in their ethoi, but their driving need to dominate and destroy men is undeniable. To accomplish this task, they are equipped with a fearsome variety of weapons.

Once a wife has selected a victim, she links herself to him via the Loop of Death. This item, typically a small ring of valuable metal, is placed on the victim by the wife, marking the victim as her "husband". A saving throw vs. death magic, albeit at -8, can be made to avoid this, but once the loop is put on, a slow, inexorable process begins. The wife will drain 1 hp. per day from the husband, with no saving throw, and drain 1 point from each statistic per year. The wife feeds off these energies. Unless the Loop of Death is Broken, the husband will eventually be drained into a spineless husk, totally incapable of any positive emotions.

In order to keep the victim in a subdued state, the wife has several weapons available. Wives are equipped with powerful vocal apparati, which which they can utter a bansheelike wail at will. This scream will cause the victim to save vs. death magic or go insane. All other men within a 50' radius will flee, abandoning the victim to his fate.

Optionally, the wife can use her voice to attack her victim with a steady, loud stream of complaints. This attack is known as Bitching. Unless a save vs. spells is made at -4, the victim will either fall into a quivering heap of jelly (50%), or leave the area immediately to escape the bitching (50%).

After 1 year, and each year after the first, the husband may attempt to make a saving throw vs. paralyzation. If successful, the Loop of Death is broken, the wife leaves and the victim becomes a Divorcee. However, unless the wife is appeased once a month with valuable gifts (known as Alimony to the wives), the wife will harass the Divorcee continually.

Victims of wives can usually be identified by certain physical symptoms: sunken eyes, bent shoulders, and a shuffling gait. These pitiful souls tend to congregate together, bemoaning their inescapable fates.

DL you forgot, at least in my case the "special attack" of stealing blankets at night and forcing me to sleep on the last six inches of the bed, thereby weakening my resistance to life, bitching, general illness and everything else as the days progress.

Here's one for the early crowd which I found quite interesting: (no prize, folks)
What well-known MMI monster was originally conceived of as a dragon?
