The House of Withered Blossoms

The dungeon was split into two sections – the pagoda itself and the dungeon below – Munasukaru’s Penance.

Continuing with the 2nd edition Oriental Adventures conversions. Krakentua seems to be made up from whole-cloth with no reference to Japanese/Asian mythologies.

KRAKENTUA Gargantuan fiend  (titan, oni), chaotic evil Armor Class 18 (natural armor) Hit Points 472 (27d20 + 189) Speed 20 ft., fly 60 […]
