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

Publication history[edit]

The vulchling first appeared in the original Monster Manual II (1983).[1]


A vulchling is one of a race of bird-like creatures with the appearance of vultures with vaguely human features. A vulchling favors desolate or subterranean lairs. A vulchling will consort with harpies or even vrocks at times. A vulchling roosts in trees or on ledges and swoops down upon unsuspecting prey, attacking with extended talons. Thereafter, the vulchling hops to the attack with its sharp beak.

Other publishers[edit]

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