[New Monster] Creeping Hand of the Colossus

Creeping Hand of the Colossus

The huge rotting fist crashed down among the adventurers, scattering them in all directions. Standing on three fingers the titanic hand flicked a finger at Koram and one at Chalk, then launched itself and tried to pummel Navnen who darted out of the way before impact.

Trying to catch his breath from the impact of the that knocked the wind out of him Chalk looked at Valance.

‘Why doesn’t it try to attack you?’ the wizard asked.

‘Afraid of spiders?’ Valance answered as he sent several arachnids the size of small dogs to attack the thing.

Chalk smirked at the answer.

Many ages ago a great demigod fought the hundred-handed Colossus and cut off its hands and sent it maimed and bleeding into the void. However the hands retained the will of their owner and while scattered across the land, the evil that they do never seems to diminish. Nowadays many of these gigantic animated undead hands lurk in underground lairs, waiting to kill any Lawful or Neutral creatures that they can to further the cause of Chaos. These undead creatures cannot ‘see’ yet they sense their surroundings as if they could see and hear. In narrow tunnels or shaky ground these things have a flick attack which they can do twice per round or, if they are on higher ground or can project themselves up at least 15′ a Creeping Hand of the Colossus can execute a pummel attacks as a huge fist that deals devastating damage. Immune to Sleep and Charm spells and taking double damage from fire, sometimes evil spellcasters reason with these animated undead and use them as mounts.

  1. That’s a good monster! Very creepy to imagine one crawling around in the depths of a labyrinth.
