Monster: Madcrafter of Thoon

Monster: Madcrafter of Thoon

The madcrafter of Thoon is a very warped mind flayer that produces constructs within vats of caustic liquid attached to its body. One of the most disturbing images in all the Monster Manuals.

Launch Spawn (16): While it usually takes a lot of time to create a construct, when threatened, a madcrafter of Thoon can create two stormclouds of Thoon or scythers of Thoon (or one of each) that decompose after a full day passes. It spits a constructs encased in a globule of caustic spittle anywhere within 50 yards. The madcrafter of Thoon rolls at +4 (included in the effective skill of 16) for targeting an area. The globule covers a 4-yard-radius area, staying active for 10 seconds. Every creature in this area that is touching the ground takes 2d corrosion damage per second. A construct of the madcrafter’s choice emerges immediately after the impact of this projectile. This ability can be used twice per day.
