Monster Manual Monday – S Shrieker

There were some good S monsters, like the sahuagin, but I ended up going with the mindless fungus that warns of approaching predators. Then bigger predators come know to come and eat whatever’s bothering them. If you saw a shrieker you might expect a bunch of bubgears or organization of ogres would be coming to thump you with clubs.

    RavenBlack – Hahahaha! Brilliant. I’m going to leave that typo because your explanation is so good.

    The other problem with shriekers is how they were a food source as well as a watch system. And one of the things that would eat them was described on the same page — shambling mounds.

    That’s what DMs I knew would also spring on you — or something very much like it — when they got tired of the bubgear/ogre strategies.
