These foul and dangerous pests are usually only found inside of šotek hives, usually in the vicinity of great old masters. Sometimes, however, a hive queen lets large numbers of potěr larva loose outside the hive when it becomes too overpopulated to be sustainable.

Potěr larva charge towards anything that seems edible. In combat, they swarm over a single creature, biting it until it succumbs to their poison. Thereafter, these little horrors devour their prey.

Poison (Ex): A potěr delivers its poison with a successful bite attack, dealing initial and secondary damage of 1d4 Wisdom. A Fortitude save DC 14 negates this effect.

Immune to Mind-Affecting Effects: Potěr are immune to all mind-affecting effects.

Skills: Potěr larva use their Dexterity score instead of their Strength score for Climb and Jump checks.

Potěr Society
No matter what kind of goblinoid creature a šotek becomes, they all start as potěr larva. Those who have studied the šotek speculate that differences in diet and possibly pheromones released by the hive mother during the larval stage of their life is what causes the šotek to differentiate into the many different adult forms they take after they go through pupation.
