Slimy and pungent, the horrid prowlasites stalk swamps, forests, caves, and Ancient ruins.  They are similar in size and build to Ancient hounds, and their hairless, rubbery skin comes in a variety of unpleasant hues.  They continually make a slurping, suckling sound that is the stuff of nightmares.

Prowlasites hunt in packs, and attack by pouncing on victims with claws and razored fangs.  With a successful bite attack, a prowlasite latches onto its prey, doing automatic gnawing damage each round plus an additional 1d4 blood-drain damage until it or the victim is dead.  After feeding, all that's left of a prowlasite's meal is a mound of bones bound by loose skin.

Saliva continually drips from their maws, and contains a numbing agent so strong that anyone bitten by a prowlasite has a 20% of contracting the Pain Insensitivity Drawback.  This saliva is highly valued for medicinal purposes.
