Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on the 15th episode of our beast series. We’ve got a great one in store for us. Honestly i have so many cool ideas when it comes to this one. I’m so excited to share them with you seriously. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at the DnD 5E Haungharassk Monster.
In any case it is found in the waterdeep dungeon of the mad mage ohh so pumped. It is a cr:0(10xp) creature which is really strange and i’ll get into why that is in a little bit. That is to say it’s 10 experience points if you defeat it. Now let’s take a look at the stats.
So this believe it or not is considered to be a huge beast. Which it has to say its massive. Not quite gigantic but still pretty big and it’s unaligned. So it’s very very intra in the flavor text for this particular creature. It mentions that it’s as large as an elephant and has a gold encrusted shell.
How cool is that. It has an AC of 6 which is really low but if you look at its hit points that is not a typo…this thing has 52 hit points determined by rolling 7d12 and adding a 7. It speed leaves a lot to be desired though 10 feet of movement and a climb speed of 10 feet.
- Type: Huge Beast, Unaligned
- AC: 6
- HP: 52(7D12+7)
- SPEED: 10FT, Climb 10ft
Now look at its stats. So some of you do want to point out not a lot going on here. It’s not very strong, it’s not very dexterous and it’s got some meat on its bones, its constitution isn’t bad, it’s intelligence leaves a lot to be desired. It’s wisdom and charisma are just meh.
- STR: 8(-1)
- DEX: 10(+0)
- CON: 12(+1)
- INT: 1(-5)
- WIS: 7(-2)
- CHA: 3(-4)
Looking at its senses though also man…passive perception of 8. Solve honor ability which is cool to the best of my knowledge this is the only creature that has this particular vulnerability: A pound of salts thrown onto the snail’s skin deals 1d6 acid damage to the creature. Which isn’t really a lot when you think about it.
It’s also not a really vulnerability at least not in terms of like legitimate vulnerability but whatever doesn’t matter.
Also superior climbing: So it climb on difficult services including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.
Very cool stuff and this creature can not attack so how would you use this because i got so many cool ideas for example i picture a mischievious or maybe just twisted druid who casts a reduce on this particular creature. And make him just look like regular escargot and then as soon as a noble who’s threatening his forest ingests it.
He stops concentrating on the spell and walks away as the noble explodes and fills the room with blood and gore. Outside of that i think this would be a hilarious way along those that same vein of thought of blocking off entrances and exits.
For example let’s say a party has a druid on the ropes like he is not looking good. All those meetings have been defeated. He runs through the doorway and throws a reduced Haungharassk at the door, at the threshold and stops concentrating and it just blows up.
I really like that because it means if the party hits the druid hard enough and he fails his constitution save. These snails are gonna blow up in his pocket and i feel like this is gonna be hilarious.
That being said let me know how you guys would use them i just it’s great. Could you imagine walking into a cave and having Haungharassk along the ceiling and the party does not know and then will they cast something like earth tremor or shatter and i just all start raining down on the party i think hilarious.
That being said how would you fold in into your games let me know down beneath in the comment section, i love hearing from you guys. Also if you want to mention any questions, comments, concerns you may have there as well i’d really appreciate it. That being said i hope you all have a great day and as always happy researching.
