    Ooh, doing them as a swarm is a really good idea.

    The nupperibo is kind of the "beefy lemure" in my view. I honestly am stumped on actual lemures, since their lore can be pretty tidily summed up with "totally useless", unless they've got a cool magazine article about them I haven't read. Blights Nupperibo Commoner

    Yeah, I think even WotC have realized that some of their overarching design goals for the MM are misguided. You can see them trying to take things in both a more practical and more interesting direction in their last couple of offerings, though they're still limited by choices they made early in...

    I want to rewrite every D&D monster from the ground up to be dynamic and flavorful encounters that center the player experience and try to alleviate the workload of the DM. Give me a monster you'll be using soon and want to make an impression, or just one you miss from a previous edition, and...
