LOCATION: Demonsteeth Mountains, The Badlands, occasionally found in the wilds of Siverleaf and the Broken Kingdom of Thane.
A massive, bad tempered and highly aggressive creature, the thick furred, eight clawed Gulo Oktopodis in full attack mode is a terrifying sight. When raised up, it is taller than a man and weighs as much as a fully grown brown bear and will hunt down and eat almost anything that it encounters.
The first indication that one may be entering the territory of a Gulo Oktopidis is the overpowering stench. When fighting, the beast typically sprays clouds of this choking, toxic fumes into the air, causing anyone within 10′ feet to wretch uncontrollably and preventing spell casters from being able to concentrate and cast a spell.
The thick hide of these beasts is especially prized by the mountain tribes and trappers, and when cured is as effective as banded armor or brigantine.
Due to their violent tempers and mean disposition, the Gulo Oktopidis cannot be intimidated and will typically fight to the death.
