Bhut

Mystara Compendium Miscellanea

I was fascinated enough by the Bhut to think of twisted humanoids that could hide in nearly any campaign. They are a favorite concept of mine, even if they aren’t a favorite monster. Without further ado….

Bhuts are monsters that appear to be perfectly normal humans during the day. However, at night, they revert to their true form, with scaly skin and wild hair. Their hands turn to claws, their teeth elongate and sharpen into fangs and their faces become unrecognizably horrific. While in this form, they hunt humanoids for food, preferring humans and demi-humans such as elves and halflings. Bhuts are very cruel, but pretend to be altruistic or honorable during the day. They will often take up lives near the very people they intend to hunt, and become a new family at the edge of town, monks, or a family of travelers. As such they speak many human and demi-human languages.

About Byron D. Molix

I am an information technology professional in Missouri. I've been an avid fan of fantasy and science fiction novels, comic books, pen and paper role-playing games, computer games and console video games for the last two decades. My dream would be to one day make a comfortable living while having the time to pursue writing (novels, rpgs, etc.) as a full-time hobby.
