Ustilagor

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

Publication history[edit]

The ustilagor first appeared in first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons in Dragon #69 (January 1983), and then appeared in the original Monster Manual II (1983).[1]

The ustilagor appeared in the second edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons under the "intellect devourer" entry in The Complete Psionics Handbook (1991),[2] and reprinted in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[3]

The ustilagor appeared in the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons in Dragon #337 (November 2005).[4]

Description[edit]

A ustilagor is a small creature that appears to be a brain-like fungal growth with coral-like appendages. Although soft and not fast by normal standards, a ustilagor can scuttle and dart about. Its attack consists of flicking out a 3-foot long, ribbon-like tendril coated in caustic alkaline fluids. A ustilagor has no intelligence or mind by human standards, but it does have some form of brain because it has psionic powers.
