Moving on to 3rd edition OA there are a few new monsters in this book that were not in 1e. Converting them here.
Tengus appear as human-sized, bipedal crows with feathered arms, pointed beaks, and huge wings. They wear clothing and occasionally armor pieces like those worn by humans, and wield human weapons (particularly the katana). While in their natural form they have the heads of crows, when they shapeshift to human form they always have incredibly long, pointed noses. Tenges come in a variety of shapes and sizes and some are kami though most are oni or other varieties of monster:
- Yamabushi Tengu (Oni)
- Karasu Tengu (Monstrosity)
Kenkus are also a type of tengu that has no affiliation with any of the Spirit Realms and have made Ningen-Do their home.
Tengus are skilled warriors, fighting with the katana like a human samurai. Their techniques are unorthodox, to say the least, making use of their wings to buffet the enemy, and emphasising dodging and mobility.
Presented below is a kami tengu. Though not outright hostile to humans they are testing spirits and won’t part with their knowledge and skill without extensive testing of the supplicant.
TENGU no KAMI
