"M" is for "Megrilla"


No. Enc.:  1 (1d3)

Armor Class:  4
Hit Dice:  10
Attacks:  2 or 1 (2 fists, or 1 bite)

The arboreal megrillas are massive, 10' tall beasts with black fur on their bodies and blue on their underbellies.  Their bullet-shaped snouts always point upwards, revealing expansive maws lined with rows of razored teeth

Megrillas never win Initiative in their first combat round, as they perform antagonistic threat displays to intimidate their foes (which causes all seeing them to suffer a -2 to Morale checks).  Anyone/anything that flees will be promptly chased down and devoured.

If a megrilla successfully strikes the same target with both fists in the same round, it immediately shoves the victim in its jaws, getting a free biting attack for 2d8 damage.  A megrilla cannot both move and attack in this fashion in the same round.

Mutations:  Increased Sense (Smell), Simian Deformity [D]
