Dragons of Spring Dawning
Source of Conflict:
A huge, hulking form rises silently up out of the black, still waters. This encounter must take place in the Swampmire or at the river.
The Situation: Normally content with living a reclusive life in the waters of Silvanesti a usually peaceful catoblepas has been tormented by the dream and is attacking anything foolish enough to come within its sight. This creature resembles that of a huge, bloated buffalo and gives off an offensive odor. Its neck is long and thin ending in a massive ugly head more hideous than that of a warthog. Its legs are thick and stumpy, much like a hippopotamus. The creature’s tail is strong however, and it moves with amazing swiftness to strike enemies.
Creatures: One ugly and thoroughly agitated catoblepas. m Advanced Catoblepas: hp 96, see page 230
Tactics: The catoblepas will use its tail attack to stun as
many creatures as possible. If it is surrounded it will lower its head to gaze at the creature that has dealt it the most damage attempting to use its death ray on them.
