Neither plant nor animal, these so-called land-octopods are fearsome, ravenous beasts that devour all in their path. Being little more than a mouth with tentacles, one would think these monsters are intelligent consumers, but that could not be further from the truth. There is a bestial but cunning intelligence within them, able to outthink and outsmart human prey and even able to cast plant-based magic (using its Mental Skill) to control the plants within the swamps where it lives.

More than its magic and its hunger, the Molbara is best known for its breath, a combination of both. It can spew forth magical fumes and gasses that can paralyse creatures, put them to sleep, blind and deafen, or even poison them. A Molbara’s breath is how it hunts, and few who encounter it live to tell the tale.
