[New Monster] Avian Daemon

Avian Daemon

 

Birdmen?” Koram laughed. “How frightening can they be?”

Chalk motioned for the fighter to be quiet and the two crept through the dense undergrowth. The wizard pointed at a group of eerie bipedal birds, one with the head of an owl, one a heron and two with distorted sparrow heads. Then they turned and slipped back to their camp silently.

Okay, I will grant you that they are creepy,” admitted Koram. “We’d better warn the others and prepare for a confrontation.”

These earthbound daemons look like sinister bipedal birdmen, sans wings. As tall as a man and covered in mottled feathers, these creatures usually carry brutal clubs or crude swords into battle. Unlike most other daemons the avian type is particularly brutish and feral, sometimes used as shock troops when they can be goaded to fight for a necromancer or other villain. Avian daemons do not communicate with non-bird creatures, but can imitate and speak with any type of bird themselves and can control all birds within 60′ of themselves and can send one bird up to one mile away to spy for them. It is said that a disturbing sight is viewing a group of these strange fiends performing dark rites around a fire at night. Avian daemons can cast three 1st level spells, two 2nd level spells and one 3rd level spell as 5th level magic-users.

    Birds without wings would probably just look like they were evil! Good stuff.
