Deep within the frigid earth, strange creatures have been sealed away since the time of The Ancients...

...and now they've broken out...


The boogens are subterranean beasts the size of hogs that dwell deep within mines and natural caves, but they surface (often burrowing up through the floors of residences) when deprived of food.  They possess squat, round bodies encased in hard carapaces, toothy maws, and multiple flailing tentacles.

Of a boogen's tentacles, the front 4 end in piercing spikes, and they can lash targets up to 15' away.  If any 2 tentacles successfully strike the same target in the same round, said target is grappled and drawn into the boogen's mouth for an automatic biting attack.

The boogens take only half damage from melee weapons and conventional firearms.
