D20 RPG Monsters; Epic Corpse Tearer Linnorm and his Chimera Skeleton Guards

Updated on July 11, 2012

Epic Monsters

Lets get to some of the big stuff. The more powerful something is themore time it takes to create it. Here we have a super advanced Linnorm of the Corpse Tearer type originating from the D&D MMII given my own 3.5 update and advancement.

Note the monster only carries two magic items but it may have any you desire according to the challenge he is facing and the end rewards you want your PC's walking away with after the battle.

This Linnorm can cast spells as a 17th level Cleric and a single precast spell is reflected in his stats already. i.e. - Divine Agility(+10 to Dex)

He will usually be accompanied with some undead minions. Here I have provided the stats to Advanced Chimera skeletons. Add an appropriate number of them and beware fallen PCs getting turned into undead creatures by the wily Linnorm. His spell selection shows he is prepared to do so.
