[New Monster] Chauku

Chauku

Stork finished talking to the odd looking creature and strolled back to Vistis.

‘Will he seek the scrolls for us in the old temple?’ the illusionist asked.

‘Yes, not a problem, Vorlag there apparently wants to stock up for winter, so this will cost us,’ Stork replied.

‘How much?’ Vistis inquired, concerned as his supply of coins was growing low.

‘Half a cow or two pigs,’ the wizard replied with a grin.

‘That is very reasonable, actually,’ the illusionist said, breathing a sigh of relief from behind his heavily lacquered mask.

Chauku: AC 7 [+12], HD 3 (13hp), Att 1× claw or kick (1d4) or weapon, THAC0 18 [+1], MV 90′ (30′), SV D 12 W 12 P 13 B 14 S 15 (1), ML 7, AL Chaotic, XP 25, NA 1d4 (1d8), TT C,U,V ▶ Infravision– 90′, Magic Resistance: +4 on all Saving Throws versus Magic. Unnerving Howl: Save vs Spells or be Confused (as the Illusionist’s Spell) for 1d6 rounds, Detect Treasure: can locate small treasures (mostly hidden coins, a few gems, a pair of scrolls, etc) within 120′.

The chauku appear as dark blue bipedal goats twith the head of a wolf. These creatures are intelligent and stay in ruins and abandoned buildings outside of towns and villages until dusk when they can be seen creeping about in the distance, looking for prey. In some places these creatures use their ability to find treasures to hire themselves out to adventurers for a price, often preferring to be paid in quantities of meat. Speak their own language and a rough form of Common.
