Rock apes dwell amid deep crevasses where magic infuses their bodies with elemental power.  They appear as apes made of rock with jagged stones where tufts of hair would stick out.  Their eyes are glittering gems (base value of 100gp each) shining with lambent green light.  These can only be removed by the death of the rock ape.  Understandably, the rock apes are hostile at harvesting attempts.  Rock apes emit a grinding noise and become aggressive if approached and may attack.  If facing superior numbers, they will throw large rocks for 2d6 damage.  Rock apes are rarely kept as pets by eccentric magic-users or worshipped by Neanderthals as natural powers.

  1. These guys look like Igoo from the Herculoids in my mind.

  2. Ha! Now that's a blast from the past!

    There's certainly a resemblance isn't there?
