Personality: The story of the howlers is a tragic one indeed. It is a story of pain and sorrow, death and degradation, and ultimately, faith betrayed.Millennia ago, on the world of Toril, war raged between the drow and the dwarves. Atrocities were common on both sides, but the worst by far were those inflicted by the drow. As far as most dwarves are concerned, the fate of the Red Hammers clan was just another of those massacres, but the truth is far worse.
Personality: Shards are the manifestation of chaotic creativity, given form by the goddess Selune. They serve her within her realm on Ysgard but also wander the Infinite Staircase, protecting the goddess’ interests. A shard is very emotional and quick to anger at any slight, whether real or imagined. While concrete facts do little to stir a shard's blood, subjective topics like art or music ignite a passionate fire within a shard -- she'll come to blows to defend her opinion.By: Christopher Campbell
Personality: Cranium rats are verminous creatures not uncommon in Sigil and pestilent cities of the Lower Planes. Cranium rats are distinguishable from their normal cousins by the pulsating brains that protrude from the tops of their skulls. They are many creatures and one all at once, for they possess a type of group mind. This is a modification of the Monster: Cranium Rats entry by James O'Rance.
