Vulnerable to Sunder

A sunder combat maneuver can be used to break a monstrous lobster’s combat claw (15 hit points, hardness 5). If its claw is broken, the monstrous lobster immediately drops any creature it is grappling. Until its claw heals in 1d4 weeks, the monstrous lobster cannot use its combat claw melee attack, or the accompanying grab and constrict abilities. During this time, its other claw is still treated as a secondary attack.


Environment any aquatic or coastline
Organization solitary or swarm (10-20)
Treasure none

This aquatic carnivore has a huge appetite, often attacking smaller creatures on sight. Its primary weapon is its single, over-sized combat claw, which it uses to grab prey. The smaller claw opposite it is used as a secondary weapon.

Monstrous lobsters can be found in any sea, but are most often encountered near coasts where constant storms and wild currents regularly deposit them in shallow waters, and provide an abundant influx of prey.

Monstrous lobsters do not die of old age. As a result, some alchemists claim that a diet of monstrous lobster meat contributes to a long and healthy life.
