Mouthies

Always on the lookout for new and especially low level monsters, I spotted these creeps in an old comic book from the '50s. Scanned and cleaned up a bit, there's one on the right. They should serve nicely as an occasional generic stand-in for goblins etc...


A lonesome wizard’s experiment gone very wrong, mouthies have managed to reproduce and can now be found in many dark and desolate places. The creatures have a ravenous appetite for human flesh and are difficult to outrun. Fortunately they’re quite stupid and lack grasping appendages - vertical escape is often the best course of action.

Nice! I sense another postcard that can be sent out with copies of the zine!

Slap on a horn and you've got the bounders from the Teddy Ruxpin cartoon.

Very nice! I'm adding this to my wandering monster tables. Thanks!

Cool. What comic was that from?

@Trey: I'm not sure since I clipped it so long ago. It might have been from Ace Comics' "Space Action" though.

Ze bulette -- may I include these in my Monster Book? I think they are super cool -- and I might make a version with a horn!! Good idea JD!

@Jim: Sure, go right ahead. And glad you like them. :)

I don't want to hear any Michael Mouthcock references.

These remind me of the little wizard spawns that were in the old Dark Castle game for the Mac.
