Ed's Notes: First thing yo get out of the way: The MM lists d12 as his Damage/Attack, but gives NO indication where that COMES FROM. I'm at a loss. Also... While I'm not going to include the full Monstrous Manual here, I DO intend to include all entries that correspond to NPC's, or that might be reasonable to encounter on the Planes, but which were not included in the PS Setting. In this case, it's for Estavan. But how cool is it that Tony DiTerlizzi still did the original in the 2e MM?!
