fantasy game just wouldn’t be the same with out the scary, creepy-crawly, just down right evil creatures for the heroes to slay. Sure there are tons of them already out there, but sometimes you need one that just doesn’t fit a mold. You are not alone, and perhaps you could help someone fit that mold with a custom-built monster!
terrible idea for a monster. Just terrible. I should be ashamed of myself for even contemplating this catastrophe, but that would imply that I have even a tiny amount of shame. I implore you, good sir-or-madam, do not bother with this monster unless you, like me, have a soft spot for awful D&D monsters.
Cult Spawn: Running a game where the god or pestilence or disease is bent on destruction? If you’re running something similar to that, this template can be applied to any creature for an infectious, insidious variant. Just change the names of the diseases and you’re good to go. (This is a D&D 3.5 or Pathfinder template, but the idea behind it could work for any setting.)
