Grell Solitary, Large, Intelligent, Hoarder, Planar Tentacle grab (d12 damage) 16 HP 0 armor Close, Ignores Armor Special Qualities: Paralyzing Tentacles, Flight
Grell are fearsome alien predators who exist only to devour other living beings. These aberrations divide all creatures into two categories, the eaters and the eaten, and humans fall into the latter. Grell resemble a bloated flying jellyfish. Their gray-green mass is covered in folds and wrinkles and appears like nothing so much as an enormous brain with a hard bony beak. The creatures have no eyes, instead perceiving the world by receiving sound waves and electrical impulses through their skin, which functions as a single huge ear. A grell is immune to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight. A grell’s body is naturally buoyant. This buoyancy allows it to fly at a speed of 30 feet. This buoyancy also grants it a permanent feather fall effect (as the spell) with personal range.A grell has ten pink or purple prehensile tentacles with retractable barbs that inject a paralytic toxin. Sages hypothesize that the creatures spread from world to world by planar travel, either through magical portals or the Vale of Shadows. Grell have no ambitions of conquest or slavery, desiring only food, making a grell a purely local problem, but left unchecked it can represent a plague of predation capable of depopulating an entire area. Instinct: Devour humans

Plague Worm Solitary, Huge, Devious Crush (d8+5 damage) 20 HP 2 armor Reach, Forceful, Far Special Qualities: Mindbreaker
“Writhing mass...glistening scales... gaping maws... It’s in my head! I can see it when I close my eyes! It calls me... back to the dark... it’s still with me! In my head... in my flesh...” -Aldous Algamite, dwarven miner (on his deathbed)
The Plague Worm is an insidious byproduct of magical contamination of the (more) common purple worm. Unlike the conventional proccess by which young are hatched from large eggs in small numbers, the Plague Worm’s reproductive process involves leaving behind a slimy residue containing thousands of tiny burrowing larvae in the tunnels it digs. Skin contact causes these larvae to burrow into the victim, where they slowly feed on the host. If it is unlucky enough to survive long enough, the host will eventually birth several “Rotgrubs” which is invariably fatal to the host. Furthermore, if an unlucky creature is unfortunate enough to meet the worm itself, it may fall prey to infestation of a different kind. The worm calls it’s prey, tugging on the psyche, indoctrinating. The “Vermin Cults” of the Plague worm are dangerous and contagious. The Worm can crush a man with its bulk in a moment. It doesn’t need to. It is defended. It is beloved.
“Iä! Iä! Iä! The Purple Worm! Iä! Iä! Iä!“
Instinct: To Consume Body and Mind
