Sometimes even the unlikliest of things can be a threat. The marrowlight is a predatory gourd, a pumpkin the size of one's torso with an outer skin of whitish green or patchy slate-blue and a mass of dense and coiling vines. Perfectly harmless -- until potential prey wanders too close: then the marrowlight's ragged maw opens wide, revealing a gullet lined with irises of sharp seed teeth, and the pits of its "eyes" and lashing vines erupt in ghostly fire.
A marrowlight is quick in combat despite its inefficient means of movement, gaining a +2 to initiative checks. It attacks with two sharp fiery coils of vine and its jagged bite, inflicting 1-3 and 1-6 hit points of damage respectively; the ghostly flames cling to the victim, inflicting a further 1-3 hit points of damage per round for three rounds or until the flames are extinguished.
The flesh of a marrowlight is a deep red and -- surprisingly -- edible; 1-4 meals may be obtained from a single marrowlight, and each meal consumed offers a +2 to saving throws for an hour.
Hahahaha! Oh wow.
"Feed me Seymour!" + fire (which makes everything better)
That is like something Ursulav would draw (probably with a Klimt-inspired gold leaf background).
Twisted and fun.
Glad you approve! ;D
And yeh, thinking on it I suppose Ursulav would be all over this one ...
I'll have to combine it with the custard locusts, or summat ;3
someone's been reading digger, i see.
I've never read Digger. Oops?
