Creaturecopia: Skremp by The Underground Oracle (@UOPublishing)
I thoroughly enjoy the Creaturecopia from the Pendleys. These creature features always come with an awesome new creature with a full unique statblock to add to your games, bags of lore, adventure seeds and the customary beautiful artwork, and this one has all those things and more!
Skremps are a hardy, rowdy cousin to the common house or garden Goblin, but with more of an emphasis on practical jokes, playing 'silly buggers' and general japery. While their goblinoid relatives often opt for shanking, stabbing and biting, Skremps are more likely to cause a kerfuffle, making more of a nuisance than a mortal threat.The lore is rich and contains many more insights about these impulsive and wild folk.
This chaotic and rebellious nature is actually born out in their statblock, with Skremp having advantage against being magically told what to do. It's always nice to see a stand out personally trait clearly reflected in a creature's statblock.
The five plot hooks feel truly grounded in the game world and are seriously varied and could be used for sidequests or encounters, but some of them have serious potential for building so much more. Particularly, coming across a browbeaten bunch under a hairy thumb and rumours of thefts in a bazaar.
Not only does this Creaturecopia have all the regular features, but it includes the racial traits for you to make your own Skremps and bring your own little green ball of chaos to the table! So this Creaturecopia is also a sneaky Remarkable Races too!
I absolutely love Maia's art, which truly captures their punk rebelliousness!
