The Carrion King (Advanced Elite Mohrg Warrior 1)

This creature’s skin is stretched tight over its twisted bones, and its intestines loll horribly from its mouth like a freakish, engorged tongue. It wears patchwork hide armor and a tattered black cloak, and hefts a deadly greataxe one-handed.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Create Spawn (Su)

Humanoid creatures killed by a mohrg rise immediately as fast zombies under the mohrg’s control. The sudden bloom of unlife when a mohrg’s victim dies and becomes a zombie causes a surge of negative energy to flow through the mohrg. Whenever a mohrg creates a zombie in this manner, it is healed 1d6 hit points per HD possessed by the slain creature and acts as if hasted for the round immediately following the spawn’s creation.

DESCRIPTION

The Carrion King is an emaciated shadow of his former self. What little remains of the towering gnoll’s skin is stretched tightly over his twisted bones, and his intestines loll horribly from his mouth like a freakish, engorged tongue. The flesh has peeled away entirely from his face, leaving a bare skull with empty eye-sockets. He is garbed in patchwork hide armor and a tattered black cloak. As in life, he wields a black-bladed greataxe in one hand.
