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

Publication history[edit]

The babbler first appeared in the original first edition Fiend Folio (1981).[1]


A babbler is a weird mutation of lizard man, a large ponderous marsh-dweller. A babbler is also known as a marsh-gibberer to native tribes that dwell nearby, and communicates with its kind in a quasi-lingual babbling tongue. A babbler resembles a small gorgosaurus in form, with a flexible, tough tail that keeps the creature stable in erect movement. Its predominant color is a dirty yellow, with a grey underside.

Other publishers[edit]

The babbler appeared in the Tome of Horrors (2002) from Necromancer Games.[2]
