Monsters Encountered


Bleak One The result of the gray jester’s empathic feeding ability, a bleak one is a humanoid devoid of all self-will and incapable of feeling any positive emotions. It follows the gray jester’s commands unfailingly.
Dire Eel A moraylike animal of unusual size. It can reach lengths of 20 feet or more and weigh up to 500 pounds. It resembles its smaller relations in other respects.
Drake A carnivorous reptile that has a fanged mouth, clawed digits, and a serpentine tail. Savage drakes attack prey on sight while domesticated drakes attack only if provoked or commanded.
Gray Jester An evil fey that feeds on feelings of laughter and joy in humanoids, strengthening itself while permanently draining these emotions from its prey. It is a gaunt humanoid clad in gray- and white-hued jester’s motley.
Hag, Green A horrible creature whose love of evil is equaled only by its ugliness. The green hag looks like a very old female human. It has a sickly green complexion with dark, tangled hair that looks almost like a tangled vine.
Filth Lord, Lesser A lesser demon which delights in the spreading of disease and uncleanliness. It takes the form of a nearly amorphous wave of undulating waste with a gaping mouth and two glowing red eyes.
Homunculus, Stone Defender A minor construct created to guard specific places, objects, or beings. The stone defender takes a canine form and will pursue trespassers until it kills them or until they have been moved far enough away from the place to be guarded.
Kobold A short, reptilian humanoid with cowardly and sadistic tendencies. A kobold’s scaly skin ranges from dark rusty brown to a rusty black color. It has glowing red eyes. They spend most of their time fortifying the land around their lairs with traps and warning devices.
Sahuagin Also known as sea devils, sahuagin are vicious sea dwellers that share many traits with sharks. They slaughter and devour anything they can catch, raiding coastal settlements in the dead of night.
Swarm, Rat A dense mass of frenzied rats.
Zombie, Filthspawned A particularly foul undead creature spawned in a pool of human waste and bound to unlife by dark magics. It retains the basic form that it had in life except that its rotting body is encased in a permanent shell of oozing filth.
