Hearing a muffled sound behind him, Stork turned. The sorcerer saw his illusionist traveling companion, Vistis the Blue Mage, suddenly struggling through a thick marsh, where just a few moments before he himself had stepped on dry land.
‘This can’t be good,’ he muttered to himself as he looked around.
A quartet of short figures shambled towards Vistis, each mummified figure had five green eyes that shown brightly.
‘Not today,’ Stork said with a snarl that revealed his shark-like teeth.

The cadaverous grovot is a strange form of undead, short, with the size and appearance of a mummified dwarf, except that the creature has a huge maw full of teeth and five eyes peering eerily through its wrappings. These monsters are apparently the remnants of some unknown race that was rendered undead for whatever reasons. Once per day three of these creatures may cast Big Bog (q.v,) as a 6th level magic-user. In this manner the creatures try to either trap adventurers or slow them down, depending on the circumstance. Clerics may turn these creatures as ghouls.
