monsters and other things that want to kill us

A place we can list the monsters we’ve fought, and any tactics that we’ve been able to decipher.

Enemy#KilledNotes
Ettin-Need to avoid this formidable two-headed foe as the dogmen will deal with it. Besides, it would surely rip off our extremities and beat us to death with them.
Mysterious Drow Slave Trader-Little is known about him accept that when Peren and Reed were laid low during the first encounter with the Barlugra and acolytes, they were saved from death and captured as slaves by the drow. He also took their valuables from them and might still have them in his possession.
Hyena30Gain a significant advantage from pack attack when 3 or more are adjascent to each other.
Gnoll Huntmaster5Adept with a long bow, it’s best to force them to use melee attacks. They also gain an advantage when attacking a target with one of it’s allies adjacent to it.
Drake2Pack predators whose young are known to spit. They are common pets that are also found in the wild. They have a nasty bite attack but seemingly average defense.
Kobold Skirmisher9Weak fighters that use crude clubs or spears and are quick to flee when bloodied unless a feared leader is among them.
Kobold Slinger8Attack with crude slings but can have special magically enhanced bullets. We have seen flame damage and bullets that can immobilize, and also saw signs of green stones which may be acid or poison.
Kobold Pikeman7Pikemen have an extended melee range of two squares and seem to have more hit points than skirmishers or slingers. They also have a special attack that can force it’s target to move one square.
Lesser Kobold Skirmisher4Attack and defense similar to a Skirmisher, but are easily dispatched with a small amount of damage.
Kobold Dragonshield4They wield shortswords and wear scal armor. They get significant to-hit bonuses for ever ally adjacent to their target.
Kobold Wyrm Priestess1Unfortunately we did not learn anything about their tactics due to a devastating attack from Berrian that killed her before she could act. She was dressed in robes with a bonemask, however. The mask seems to be tell-tale sign of a magic user.
Kobold Chieftan (Gleedil)1Melee Attack was not much better than a Skirmisher, but he wore quality armor and a bonemask. Gleedil did have an acid breath attack and could cast buff spells to give his allies temporary hit points.
Poisonous Snake1Found as a trap in a Gleedil’s treasure chest.
Barlugra Demon1Big, powerful looking orange creature that appeared on the pentagram dais in a clearing in the gnoll valley we spotted from the top of the path coming down from the kobold tower. We found it to have long arms with incredible athleticism and the ability to hit with both arms in an attack. It was fairly lightly armored though despite it’s formidable attacking prowess and high constitution.
Human Thugs4Employed by Fallcrest’s councilman Frederick and were non-lethally defeated by Sheddin and Grumel.
Gnoll Acolyte2Similarly armed like the huntmasters, however their arrows were enchanted with fire and they had the ability to curse for ongoing necrotic damage. They were also more decoratively dressed and had better quality hide armor. They had also built a copse of trees into a fire trap.
Kruthik Hatchling5Insect like creatures that hatch from eggs and also enter into a cocoon state to transform into adult form. They can also burrow underground and resurface elsewhere after a round. They also have an aura about them that causes damage to adjacent enemies from the way they constantly thrash around.
Kruthik Young2Much the same as hatchlings only slightly tougher.
Gravehound26Undead doggies that have a nasty bit attack that inflicts initial necrotic damage and ongoing as well. Their attacks also will knock you prone. We also found that a critical hit instantly kills them.
Zombie Shambler5Human zombies that were in various mangled states. They are weak defensively and damage wise and tend to simply try and grab hold of you to immobilize. We also found that a critical hit results in instant death.
Corruption Corpse4These nasties has a reservoir necrotic goo where bowels used to be. The attack at range by throwing handfuls of goo which inflict necrotic damage and weaken enemies. Up close they slam attack with their hands. When they are defeated they explode hitting all adjacent squares with the necrotic goo.
Wight3Very weak defensively, but has long ranged spells that inflict necrotic damage and also immobilize. The one we encountered had a magical amulet.
Maw (sp?)1Large zombie like creature with a large gash in it’s midsection and severely mangled hands. It was able to summon a group of 4 zombie rotter minions to it’s side.
Zombie Rotter Minions4Weak zombies that did not get a chance to attack as they were dispatched immediately with an area attack.
Spectre3
Yellow “Slime”2
Green “Slime”4
