Norman over at Troll and Flame posted this most awesome picture of a Howlerbat and asked for stats.  Here's my attempt.


Armour Class: 6
Hit Dice: 2
Move: 9' (3')
      Fly 180' (60')
Attacks: 1 bite or 1 howl
Damage: 1d4 or stunned (see below)
No. Appearing: 2d12
Save As: F2
Morale: 10
Treasure Type:  J
Alignment: Chaotic
XP Value: 50

A howlerbat has a vicious howl attack.  It can target a single creature, and if that creature fails it's saving throw vs. paralysis it is paralyzed for 1d3 rounds.  If targeted by multiple howls, the effects are cumulative, however any successful save negates all previous failed saves.     


  1. Nice write-up!
    I saw that picture at Troll and Flame this morning. The picture is disturbing, but it would be a fun thing to throw at players!

  2. Excellent! I dub thee official Howlebat statblock.

    And yes, picture is highly disturbing.
