“These guys are relentless!” Koram shouted as he skewered another of the foul birdmen. The thing’s eyes bulged and it squawked in pain and dismiss before it collapsed lifelessly onto the rough stone floor. Several of the other vulture-headed things shrieked in rage and renewed their attack.
Chalk cast a spell that caught several of the creature’s scaly feet together and three of the vulture-headed things fell to the ground.
“Kill them all! They are trying to take us to the Lower Planes!” the wizard yelled.
Just then a half a dozen enormous spiders scurried into the fray with almost supernatural speed, Valance sitting on the back of one of the hideous arachnids.
“Am I too late for the party?” asked the priest of the Spider God.

The boku-boku or ‘Avian Enslavers’ are a cruel race of vulture-headed humanoids with ties to the Mythic Underworld and are notorious for capturing and enslaving inhabitants of the Material Plane to serve in the various wars between factions of fiends on the Lower Planes. Negotiations are fairly pointless as these creatures fear their nefarious masters, a race of demons which they are said to resemble (Vrocks- a Lower order of demon who please their masters by using the boku-boku to supply soldiers to fight for them on the Infernal Planes).
In combat the boku-boku can use two weapons with no penalty and sometimes use nets or other devices to trap and entangle their victims. Once per day a gathering of at least four boku-boku may attempt to Gate in one Vrock to sell slaves to or to assist in combat. If an encounter turns against them the boku-boku will fly away if they can to regroup and attack later as any foe that can overcome them will bring good coin from their masters.
