B is for Bog Octopus

The bog octopus was a creature I was not familiar with, coming from D&D as I did. I found it intriguing earlier in my Warhammer gaming experience, but I never got around to using it. I just didn't set that many of my adventures near bogs.

Ten years or so ago, I ran my gaming group through The Dying of the Light. This published adventure contained a bog octopus, and relatively early on in the adventure. It was fun to reach through shack windows and roof to attack the PCs with muscular octopus arms.

Here's some fun flavor text from the Bestiary:

"Their entire lives are spent squelching menacingly around in stinking mud and quagmires, surfacing occasionally to drag down and eat some passing creature."

Here's to many more menacing squelches!
