Monster: Scarecrow

The scarecrow is a familiar sight in any farming community.  So common, in fact, that locals don't even notice them, don't notice that they don't always seem to be in the same position, don't notice the stains of blood that sometimes appear on their clothes and tools.  Sometimes they don't even notice that the crows hanging about seem well fed in spite of the fact that the crops haven't been touched.

Medium Construct, Enchanted (uncommon)
Armour Class: 6
Hit Dice: 3
Move: 120' (40')
Attacks: 1 weapon - farm implement
Damage: 1d8
No. Appearing: 1-2
Save As: F3
Morale: 12
Treasure Type: U

Alignment: chaotic
XP Value: 100(?)

The Murder of Crows that accompanies many of the animated scarecrows will often attack any creature that the scarecrow engages.  Treat the Murder of Crows as a 3 hit dice Insect Swarm with a moral of 8 as long as the scarecrow is active, and have it drop to 6 if the scarecrow is destroyed, and immediately roll a moral check.
