Screaming and slavering, the ravening gragask is a disgusting beast from the pits of the Abyss and other fiendish areas, feasting on the leavings of more powerful monsters. They have been known to charge at obviously superior opponents in a fit of mad rage.


This monster has a devastating combat opener on open ground, which you should encourage the players to figure out how to avoid. Make the players feel relieved when it misses, and upset when hit.
