Skum (Dungeons & Dragons)
|Stats||Open Game License stats|
The skum first appeared in second edition in Polyhedron #67 (January 1992). The skum also appeared in the revised Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (1993), and reprinted in Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume One (1994).
A skum resembles an ugly, black/dark green fish-humanoid, with muscular limbs, hands and feet which are both webbed and clawed, very veiny and tight-packed flesh, a tail, and fins protruding from the head, tail and underarms.
The skum lives in watery grottoes and caves in broods of 2 to 5 individuals or packs of 6 to 15. As its name suggests, it is a rather scummy creature, and could be described almost as an underwater equivalent of an ogre or minotaur. They speak Aquan, and are lawful evil in alignment.
