‘It is still coming!’ the elf ranger said as he turned his ear away from the earthen wall.
‘Those things are tenacious to be sure,’ Fellhorn the druid said with a grimace.
‘What have you got?’ the elf asked the gnome illusionist.
The sounds of digging could be heard by all now. The creature was getting closer.
Moments later a huge alligator like head poked through the earthen wall, its crazed eyes focusing on the trio of adventurers.
‘My master would like to speak to you. I, however, will eat you if given half a chance,’ the creature said in an ominous tone, its wild eyes glaring with malice.
‘Well, I suppose we have no choice but to talk to your master,’ Fellhorn said with some trepidation.
‘Indeed,’ the dreeld said with evil glee, tongue running over its sharp teeth.

Ancient reptilian beasts of average intelligence, the dreeld are mostly quadrupeds and serve as chaotic steeds, happily serving servants of Chaos as mounts or shock troops and openly attacking servants of Law on sight.
Roughly the size of an elephant with a leaner body, these creatures have even thicker hides and alligator like heads that posses eyes that often look wild or crazed. Because they are crazed. Thankfully few in number, it is rumored that a powerful leader of Chaotic forces can call upon a small cavalry of up to twenty of these creatures that can decimate a small village in no time at all and the dreeld thrive on this behavior.
