Descript {
Apocrypha resemble regular books, generally of the large dusty tome variety, although with several key differences.
For instance, regular books do not have fangs, nor do they fly, and regular books especially do not latch onto unsuspecting passerby and drain out their knowledge.
Apocrypha live in swarms (generally between 3 and 6), and prefer environments where they will go unnoticed, like old libraries and the bookshelves of dungeons.
Actions {
Mind Drain {
Kind Ranged Spell
Hit +2
Reach 5'
Damage 1d4+3 psychic
Special {
Once this attack lands, the apocrypha stays attached to the target, and at the start of each of the apocrypha's turns (until it gets detached), the target takes 1d4+3 psychic damage, and 1 INT damage. Accrued INT damage can be healed by reading the apocrypha (likely once it is killed). Be careful not to destroy the corpse!
Notes {
Use on low level parties. Support with a stronger monster.
Doesn't nerf casters in practice, just makes them angry.
