These yowling beasts are born of a cursed witch's cat and full grown in six months.  They appear as gaunt, hairless cat-humanoids with crazed yellow eyes.  As tall as an elf and swifter, it's claws and bite are needle-sharp.  Always hungry and extremely territorial, one will attack larger or numerous foes in a series of hit and run attacks.  Skreewoede feel no loyalty to anything and often cruelly sport with injured or helpless creatures.  They will also spray a victim's corpse with foul-smelling musk once they've eaten the choice parts.  A pouch full of catnip will quiet and pacify them for 1d4 turns.  Skreewoede are talented climbers (Climb Walls 80%) but their constant yowling makes stealth impossible.  Their vile shrieks increase the chance of attracting wandering monsters by 1 in 6.  These are usually hostile due to sleep deprivation.


  1. Nice evocative beastie. It could work with an occult/horror sort of game as well as traditional D&D.

  2. I confess there's a little bit of Poe's The Black Cat in there, also some of Zak's remix of the caterwaul from Fiend Folio.
