In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the sussurus is a type of creature.

Publication history[edit]

The susurrus first appeared in White Dwarf #9 (October 1978). The sussurus appeared in the original first edition Fiend Folio (1981).[1]

The sussurus appeared in second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons in the Monstrous Compendium Fiend Folio Appendix (1992).[2]

A sussurus is a creature covered in bamboo tubes, and when it breathes through these reedy tubes it creates its eerie "dronesong" that causes other creatures to fall asleep.
