Cool - we can always do it bit by bit - would like to get this finished before polishing enslaver. Am also adapting Halls of Tizun Thane for 5e, which has 3 original WD FF monsters in it too.
Halls of Tizun Thane seems to be a popular subject for conversion to later editions of D&D. I've seen multiple takes on its monsters for 3E, plus a couple of conversions of the entire module. Don't think I've seen anything for 5E so far.
"Pine Kindred are a foul form of undead/plant hybrid, created vai a dark ritual where freshly-dead or still living bodies have their blood replaced by pine sap. They live in dark pine forests and work to lure or catch unsuspecting humanoids to be converted into more of their kind. This foul procedure is carried out by the Jarl of the tribe..
They appear as sinewy humanoids with dark green-brown dry skin with prominent blackish pulsing veins, and a strong, almost overpowering, smell of conifer. They have a menacing demeanour and feral piercing yellow or green eyes. They wear remnants of clothing they wore in life."
The first paragraph reads a bit clunkily and I think some of it could belong in the later paragraph.
The second paragraph is a lot better, and I'll likely use most of it for the start of my take on a Description.
If and when I actually get around to it!
