Epic Monsters of Korovia

For D&D purposes, epic monsters are "unbeatable". The only thing that can be done is to attempt to escape them.


The Northern Leviathan

The Northern Leviathan is a colossal woman with the bottom half of an enormous water snake. She is so huge that she can lift a large ship with three fingers as if it was a hamburger. She doesnít eat them however. She simply destroys ships and occasionally purposely drowns monsters. Her motives are unknown, but she appears to be good and possibly lawful.

No one has ever managed to communicate with her and no one knows where she lives or her motives. Not even the sea elves and merfolk know much about her, despite having cults that worship her.

The Leviathan can never be found unless she wants to be found.


The Trollish Pit Beast

The Troll-King Zyguinas created the Trollish Pit Beast through hundreds of years of magical experimentation. It lives at the bottom of a pit near the center of the Trollís mountain-city and appears to be nothing more than a colossal pile of green flesh, a gaping maw and two large eyes. It regenerates everything and usually sleeps when itís not eating.

The trolls usually use the pit beast as a punishment for thieves and murderers of their own kind. Otherwise trolls usually eat non-trolls. It is rare that a non-troll would ever be fed to the Pit Beast. It is therefore even more rare for a non-troll to ever see the Pit Beast, without being fed to it soon after seeing it.

The best way to escape the jaws of the Trollish Pit Beast is to either climb out of the pit, or teleport out. Combat is impossible as it regenerates even fire and acid damage.

Creatures inside the beast take 50 points of crushing damage per round until they are dead. They must make Fortitude saves (DC 25) just to stay conscious.

100d10+2000 (2550 Hit Points), AC 30, SR 30, Immune to Cold/Fire/Electricity/Acid/Disintegration/Death Spells/Transmutation, Regenerates 150/round, Automatically makes all saving throws, Automatic Swallow.

It is believed that only the Troll-King knows how to destroy the Beast (if its even possible).
