Monster: Umber Hulk

Monster: Umber Hulk

Umber hulk is an iconic D&D monster, appearing in all its editions. It's a big ape-like beetle that lives underground and confuses enemies with its gaze when he cannor deal with them with his powerful mandibles or fists. Many umber hulks have been enslaved by the neogi - a race of eel-spiders - and now serve their master with complete obedience. Add Slave Mentality to such enslaved umber hulks.
