The Dunter

This hellish little creature prowls the abandoned forts, castles and cities where battles have been fought and much blood shed. It comes to these places seeking the herbs and mushrooms that grow from dark eart soaked red with blood and entrails. Amongst the favored are the Venteroot, a tuberous herb said to extend the life of those who eat it.They guard their new found home with the fierceness of a cornered tiger and kill all who enter their homes. It is said that the proper preparation of their roots, herbs and mushrooms requires the blood of various creatures; to include man and dwarf.

These smallish creatures appear as a wizened old man with long unkempt hair, broad shoulders and slender legs. Wide bulbous eyes dominate the face and jagged teeth clack and chatter constantly.
