B is for Bouda
Gnolls are great, but big bullies like that seem to deserve demonic, nasty friends. That’s the bouda, a were-hyena from East African legend that is just a blast. In the way of many real legends, they devour children, and they have monstrously horrible personal hygiene.
But as it happens, fleas, vomit, and devouring the innocent are all attributes of a truly maleficent monster. Imagine the evil villain laughs they flea-bitten horrors let loose!
During the 2013 Monarch of the Monsters contest, this submission was as a finalist, designed by Wendall Roy. It’s too horrific and wondrous not to share. Is it too nasty to inflict one of these on players who happen to be parents? Maaaaybe.
