Rapacious Guttersnipe - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

I have a new piece from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia! Today's monster is the vile Rapacious Guttersnipe. Many horrors bubble up from the labyrinthine depths below the Bazaar, and one of the most dangerous is the dreaded Rapacious Guttersnipe. Not exactly flesh and next exactly mineral, these monsters are hard to kill even for the greatest of slayers. Whip like tentacles with a suffocating grip and jagged, sharp bodies, these monsters are one of the reasons Ethra keeps the Aberrant Stilters around. If you find yourself in a dark alley face to face with a Rapacious Guttersnipe, pray that you are with companions and that you can outrun them.

If you would like to read the thoughts of 
Silas Illywacker - Student of Enlightenment, regarding this monster, then head on over to The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDaila blog!
