Weekly What the Heck

Welcome to the third installment of my regular feature here at the Near TPK. With continuing apologies to one of my favorite blogs, the Daily WTF, I present... The Weekly What The Heck.

Each Saturday at 10 AM Central Time I'll post one of Jen's drawings of some kind of whacked-out creature, and ask my readers: "What the heck IS that?"

I hope my readers will approach the challenge in the spirit of "Yes, and ..." - building on previous responses so everyone's ideas can be used in the final writeup. Comments are now closed on last week's entry, and I hope to have the final writeup posted tonight. Comments will be accepted on this week's entry until I post next week's entry.

So... What the heck is that? What should it do? How gross will it feel when the thing touches your character?

This little nasty always waits on the opposite side of doors, using its repulsive stench to cause severe discomfort in the nose and stomach as well as the eyes...

It got that way from eating a lot of living beings. If it keeps on eating, it might assimilate too many mouths and eyes and things, and become a Gibbering Horror.

Doctor Checkmate said...

It's stench is a result of its diet as a garbage disposal for a necromancer and it is, in fact, the larval form of a Gibbering Horror.

Of course, the PCs don't know this until they've slain it and extracted the partially digested diary and remains of a missing naturalist.
