The Saga of Rosemary Goodfruit
The Tower Beast
This terrible creature seems to lair within the underground ruins on the island, but has been willing to venture out at night to abduct and mutilate intruders on its territory. It bears a fearsome visage akin more to a giant lizard or frog than anything resembling a human. It appears intelligent, weilding a deadly claw and a destructive projectile weapon in combat, though if it is able to communicate it appears to have no desire to do so. Its black, scaly hide is difficult to make out in the murkiness of the underground, a fact not aided by the sense that its outline shifts and wavers in shadow.
