Two ravenous unliving swarms for your Curse of Strahd game or anytime you want to pop in a little undead variation into a game. These conversions are originally from Libris Mortis: The Book of the Undead. First we have the blood draining Bloodmote Cloud (CR6) and then we have a diseased Swarm of Bone Rats (CR2) to chew through the party.
|This cloud of buzzing insects boils toward its victims, droning ominously in its strangely deep pitch and accompanied by the sickly sweet aroma of blood.|
A bloodmote cloud is made up of undead mosquitoes with a blood thirst. While a living mosquito is hardly more than an annoyance, and a swarm of the same is hardly cause for alarm, the appearance of a concentrated swarm of undead bloodsuckers is a calamity.
|With the scrabble of hundreds of bony claws, a mass of tiny skeletal creatures surges across the fl oor, with pinpoints of red light gleaming in their empty eye sockets.|
A bone rat swarm is a mass of undead skeletal rats. Though individually such creatures would pose little risk, in great numbers they can strip a creature clean in short order.
