Mazzik – A nightmarish creature for your OSR games

Download it in PDF format here:

A mazzik is nightmarish creature made of phobias, that feed on the fears of other beings. It inhabits the darkest and wildest places, waiting to stalk their next victim.

These beings can adopt different colours to blend in with their surroundings and go unnoticed more easily. They have a powerful attack with their claws and beak, with which they usually direct towards the eyes of their opponents to make them lose their sight.

Mazzik, in addition to wild terrain, can be found near cemeteries or corpse graves. As a result of this, some people say when someone dies with a strong feeling of fear and despair, a mazzik is born. During their attack, the mazzik will be able to shout the greatest fear of their victim out loud in order to distract them and tear out their eyes.
