Earlier this year, one of our editors proposed converting one of our Deadly Delve adventures to one of the many OSR rules sets. Figuring why not give it a try, we choose Reign of Ruin and choose Swords and Wizardry as the rules to take. Its a solid game supported by a company that we at JBE respect.
So if you want to see our products in the S&W rules, make sure you download this adventure at JonBrazer.com when it comes out next week.
Today we are showing off one of the monsters from that adventure. We have a lizardfolk mud zombie for you to use in your own adventures.
Mud Zombie, Lizardfolk
Layers of mud crack and flake as the desiccated body of this lizardman moves inside its hardened burial shell, lumbering toward you and loosing an unsettling hissing moan that shreds through its dry lungs and vocal cords.
Hit Dice: 2
Armor Class: 6
Attacks: 2 claws (1d3), 1 bite (1d6)
Saving Throw: 16
Special: dust cloud, immune to sleep and charm
Number Encountered: 1d6
Challenge Level/XP: 3/60
Similar to normal zombies, these are lizardmen that have either been encased in mud in a horrific ritual, or simply died in a mud pit near desecrated ground and rose later as an undead creature. Whenever a mud zombie takes damage, a dust cloud kicks up around it. Any creatures within 5 feet must immediately succeed on a save or suffer a –2 penalty to all rolls for 1d3 rounds.
