Fresh from the drawing table... Baboon!

I have for you another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is a Baboon! "B" is just full of mundane monsters, but being mundane is no reason to not get all the time and attention the more fantastical monsters get. With that in mind I created a baboon that would inhabit my D&D world. I present to you my version of a Baboon…

What is more frightening, a guard dog or a guard baboon? The dog has a mouth full of teeth... but that baboon has a mouth full of teeth, two arms with monkey strength, two legs with more of that monkey strength, and a brain with the smarts to mess you up. My money is on the baboon every time. Even the half blind older baboon... you know he has been around the block and you are not the first group of adventurers to cross his path... and he is still on duty. As a Dungeon Master that baboon would be surprisingly powerful and its chains would snap at the WORST possible moment for the players. ...cause that is how I roll and the players need to be scared of EVERYTHING.
