New Monster: Hell Bat

“Rathgar! Lookout!” Feris yelled, pointing skyward at a glowing ember falling rapidly.

Rathgar dropped to one knee, and flung his shield above his head just as flames burst all around him.

Nimble followed Feris’ finger, and released the bolt from his crossbow, sending it arching up toward the ball of smoke and fire that flitted across the twilight sky.

“There’s another one!” Allianora pointed at another one with her mace, as Rathgar jumped from the flames, abandoning his burning shield. “Where?”

“There!” Allianora and Feris yelled in unison, and pointed in different directions. Feris evoked a bolt of ice that shot from his finger, causing his target to screech and flame before veering off.

Slightly larger than giant bats, these demonically tainted rodents will constantly smolder while in flight, leaving behind a trail of sulfurous smoke. While they will bite their opponents, they prefer to drop small fireballs upon their victims. They are cowardly vicious beings that are used by more powerful demons and spell casters to soften up targets.
