Kappa (Dungeons & Dragons)
In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, most commonly in the Kara-Tur sub-setting of the Forgotten Realms, the kappa is an evil creature based upon the kappa of Japanese mythology.
The common kappa, the vampiric kappa, and the kappa-ti appeared in second edition for the Kara-Tur setting in the Monstrous Compendium Kara-Tur Appendix (1990).
A kappa resembles an almost furless, green-skinned, beaked, fiendish monkey, with a cragged depression in its head containing water which acts as its cerebrospinal fluid. The kappa was introduced to D&D in Oriental Adventures. The kappa appeared again in the Kara-Tur Monstrous Compendium Appendix (MC6); appearing are the common kappa, kappa-ti and vampiric kappa.
