Warning: Possible Outgrabe

Mome Rath

A kind of wild pig, possessing the curved tusks and rich hairless green skin of Satan as depicted in Michael Pacher's Wolfgang und der Teufel. Mome Raths bellow at the coming of danger and gnaw the bones of the dead in the fields where bodies lay burning.
They are used as warpigs by the forces of the Red King. They can swim as well as water spaniels.

HP 13 Speed 1.25 human 1/2 human in water
AC 7/13 (dex) Intelligence Animal (Reference creature: Wardog)
-Bite: +2 to hit d10hp
-Mome Raths feed on failure. Any miss on a Mome Rath adds d4 to its HP. Rolling a 1 to attack a Mome Rath gives the Mome Rath an extra attack per round for the rest of the encounter.

really loving the alice inspired things you are doing. ever heard of the wonderland setting by marco chacon.
I think he did two things for it wonderland and the book of knots. I look at them for inspiration sometimes, though I like where you are taking it too.
love gritty, dark feeling settings =)

I can only imagine now Nilbogs with funny hats riding those things through Arzach style desert landscape.

Jeremy Murphy said...

When do they outgrabe? Also, I assume the slithy toves will be creatures of the white queen?

That's Some Pig.

You should totally make one of them.

I kind of like imagining this pig as being of Tarrasque-esque proportions, where the blades of grass/reeds at its feet are human-sized.

Now we know where the Green Ham of Green Eggs and Ham come from.

I linked this in my Monday Monster roundup. Don't know if you are joining the fun, but I like the monster all the same!
