Yet another beastie for your RPGing pleasure. “What the —-? What were you thinking, GM Linda? Converting a Star Wars monster to D&D…Why?” Because every DM knows you can’t have too many tentacled creatures to populate your dungeons and make your PCs earn their treasures and XP! Plus, it seemed like a fun way to improve my skills with 5e. Thanks to Empty Bacta Tank for feedback and some Challenge Rating advice.
