With a head like an
angry crustacean, this fierce little insectoid creature clacks and rattles with
a tiny but solid-looking hammer.

Speedy Sabotage (Su)
Vexgits are adept
at disassembling machinery, reducing even complex devices to trash with
shocking speed. When using the Disable
Device skill, these gremlins treat all devices as being one category
simpler for the purposes of determining how long it takes to use the skill.
Thus, difficult devices count as tricky, tricky devices count as simple,
and simple devices can be dismantled as a free action.
Wrecking Crew (Su)
A group of up to six vexgits can work together to dismantle a device. This ability functions like the aid another action, but a single vexgit can receive help from up to five other vexgits, granting it up to a +10 bonus on its Disable Device check.
Environment any underground
Maniacally destructive little brutes, vexgits delight in scrapping and sabotaging the works of larger races. The larger and more complicated the target, the better. While one of these spiteful gremlins might delight in trapping someone behind a door with a jammed lock, loosening the wheels on a carriage, or sneakily removing all the nails from a small boat, its when groups of vexgits get together that theyre truly dangerous. In such instances, the portcullis of a vexgit-infested gatehouse turns into a deadly weapon, while a clock tower becomes an avalanche of gears waiting to topple. Engineers warn apprentices of masterful Constructions destroyed by these unruly gremlins, with many blaming their greatest failures on such tiny saboteurs.
Like most gremlins, vexgits prefer to live underground, but cities and the devices they find there fascinate them, often drawing mobs of the dangerous fey to sewer tunnels and abandoned warehouses.
Vexgits stand 1-1/2 feet
tall and weigh approximately 16 pounds.
