It's like a lottery where the Dungeon Master wins player corpses!

It is "Somewhat mammalian" and has steel-grey thick stiff fur, that blends very well in your "average stone-made dungeon" but is valueless, because for some reason, it's immune to being skinned. Those crafty DM's.

  1. Now this has promise, all the crap monsters from Dragon and White dwarf that didn't even make it to hardcover.

  2. Well, strap in, because it just became a regular feature.

  3. I remember a long time ago there was a swirly thing like you posted. Only we were to look at it for a bit, then look directly at our hands, and our hands would seem like they were getting bigger and smaller. Optical illusion. Very fun.

    Happy Holidays and boogie boogie.
