Bearshark & Sharkbear

Some wizards just don't know when to leave deadly enough alone.

Bearshark
Armor Class: 5
Hit Dice: 6 (L)
Move: 60' (20')
  Swimming: 180' (60) 
Attacks: 2 claws/ 1 bite

No. Appearing: 1 (1d2)
Save As: F4

The Bearshark is all shark on the tail end, and furry claws and teeth on the front end. While they have limited mobility on land, they are still quite deadly.  A successful bite attack roll of 19 or better on a medium or smaller creature means that the Bearshark has begun to swallow their victim.  Every subsequent round they will suffer an automatic bite attack which deals 3d6 points of damage.  The Bearshark will not attack any other opponents until the victim is dead.

The Sharkbear is the deadlier cousin of the Bearshark.  While it has the bear's chest and legs, the head, dorsal fin and tail are those of the great white shark.   A successful bite attack roll of 18 or better on a medium or smaller creature means that the Sharkbear has begun to swallow their victim.  Every subsequent round they will suffer an automatic bite attack which deals 3d6 points of damage.  The Sharkbear will not attack any other opponents until the victim is dead.

Bite +8 (3d4+2+attach on critical) , 2 Claws +11 (1d8+4)

  1. I laughed when I read "deadlier cousin" in the sharkbear entry. Sure, the statistics are heavier, it is just the thought that something could be more vicious and made of the same basic components.

    Very deadly creatures, though. I am absolutely petrified of sharks and most marine life, but I will try to pluck up the courage to drop one of these in my campaign world.
