Mud-man

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the mud-man is a type of monster.

Publication history[edit]

The mud-man first appeared in the adventure module Beyond the Crystal Cave (1983).[1] The mud-man appeared in the original first edition Monster Manual II (1983).[2]

The mud-man appeared in second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons in the Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989),[3] and reprinted in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[4]

Description[edit]

A mud-man is a creature of animated mud, taking a stocky humanoid form when roused, and is formed in a pool of mud where enchanted waters collect and evaporate and concentrate the dweomer. A mud-man attacks by hurling mud at opponents; the mud hardens on impact and slows the movement of the victim. Immobilized victims usually die from suffocation from the hardened mud.
