Catspider

Armor Class: 13
Hit Dice: 1d3 HP*
No. of Attacks: 1 bite/4 claws
Damage: 1d4/1d2/1d2/1d2/1d2 all + poison
Movement: 50'
No. Appearing: 1
Save As: Fighter: 1
Morale: 8
Treasure Type: None
XP: 13

A catspider is a scary creature that looks like a cat, except that it has eight legs. The catspider also has fangs, but the fangs retract into the mouth so the face looks like a normal cat. If someone doesn’t notice the extra legs and tries to pet the “cat”, it will attack with a bite and use its first four feet to scratch. The bad thing is that the claws on these paws are also poisonous doing 1d3 damage/round for 3 rounds. These creatures are a foot tall and a foot long. Catspiders especially like to lurk behind drapes and furniture and will suddenly jump out to attack.

I'm not seeing the image on there. Can you add it to your post (if it's an image you drew and were intending it to be included)?

It's a meme, actually, so he doesn't have rights to it, but sharing it might be good so an artist can come along and draw it properly.

Monachians

Armor Class: 14
Hit Dice: 4
No. of Attacks: 1 weapon + gaze or spell
Damage: 1d8 + paralysis or spell
Movement: 40’
No. Appearing: 1d4
Save As: Magic User 4
Morale: 9
Treasure Type: U
XP: 320

Monachians are intelligent bird-men who most closely resemble vultures. They have evolved a roughly humanoid frame with claw-like hands and feet. However, they no longer possess the ability to fly.

Monachians live in enclaves far from civilization. Their society revolves around magical and alchemical research. One day they hope to conquer and enslave the other races using advanced weapons of war. Those encountered by adventuring parties are generally Magic-Users seeking powerful magical items or hidden knowledge.

In combat, monachians use large swords and their gaze attack. They may choose one opponent to lock eyes with. The opponent must make a save versus Paralysis or be paralyzed for 1d4 rounds. The gaze effect is ineffective against monachians, even if reflected by a mirror or shiny surface. If they choose to cast a spell, they may not use their gaze attack that round. A suggested daily spell list includes: Magic Missile, Light, Invisibility and Web.

Here is the meme the Catspider came from, it was on the Horror Fans FB page. Maybe one of our fantastic artist can come up with what is behind the drapes. I'm thinking a spider type body with the same pattern of the cat fur and a cat's tail on that. Also another set of legs pointing to the back.

Should have a drawing of this hideous cuddly demon from the adorable depths of unimaginable terror posted for your consideration today or tomorrow. Almost done.

That's as scary as I thought it would be. Could you put a tail on it and I think it would be finished. :D

I could see this being a Drider's pet.
