Monster - Deep Sea Star

Monsters that have minions are a classic, but villains have to innovate to keep up with the times. To help, we offer you the latest in hero-devouring technology: a monster made of minions. 

The Deep Sea Star, like its more mundane cousins, regrows severed limbs, and its severed limbs regenerate full sea stars. Even worse, a seemingly dead star will usually reawaken barely an hour later, meaning a single star can quickly turn into many, many monsters. And, unlike their docile cousins, every Deep Sea Star hates you, and will kill you. Without specially tailored methods, hurting a Deep Sea Star will only propagate more mouths for it to use to eat you.

Players might have trouble exterminating a Deep Sea Star infestation even with some planning, but a particularly diabolical DM could even use the star as a random encounter with especially dire consequences for an inattentive party. If they aren't careful, your players might cause an infestation themselves with only a few solid Attack actions! And that's to say nothing of what a villain with a sturdy cage and an axe could get up to over only a few days. 

This self-replicating monster comes to you thanks to a poll on our Patreon! Our patrons get to vote in monthly polls to choose some of the content we produce, and at the same time get sneak peaks at what concepts our writers are talking about for the near future. Patrons also get access to our premium content, some of which is available nowhere else, as well as early access to everything we release for free! And, of course, the more you all contribute to our coffers, the more of our time and energy can go into making more and better content!
