When All Else Fails, Forge Monsters

It's been a while since I've done any of these.

Petal Zombie

Malevolent spirits inhabit groves of cherry and plum trees, waiting for spring. When it arrives they inhabit the fallen blossoms, which they animate and use to kill passers-by. They attack by suffocation, forcing themselves into nostrils, mouths, and throats; a successful hit does no damage, but the victim must contine to succesfully save vs. paralysis each round from that point onwards or choke to death. Petal Zombies can only be harmed by magical weapons. They always surprise their victims unless forewarned, and they never stray more than 60' from their grove.

Root Voice Demon

These malicious but harmless beings live amongst tree roots, under the surface of the earth, and call out to passers-by. Being able to sense the contents of a man or woman's soul, they will often divulge personal secrets - careless of who might overhear. They have a 50% chance of doing so per round a person is in ear shot.

They are ethereal and invisible, and very rarely approach the surface.

Urn Wraith

An urn wraith is an evil undead entity which imbues itself into the ashes of a funeral urn and animates them into a human form - which emerges at will. It does this for its own amusement and satisfaction, to enjoy the misery and terror it instills into its victims before they die. Its touch causes the soul to wither.

  1. なかなか面白いブログですね。


  2. I dig this. I've played around with the Forge (a discovery made possible thanks to you) and plan to do a post of cool strange monsters. That's probably my next project after I finish poking through the monster manuals and spinning the beasties how I want them (

  3. Tedankhamen: 京都に住んでるんだ?俺はずっと神奈川県に住んでて、あんまり関西に行くきっかけがないけど行ったら声をかけるね。勉強してるのは何の分野かな?
