Arh Now I believe they call this a Rabbit, not too dangerous if handled correctly. — Skar the Nethermancer, talking about a Gargoyle when first venturing into the outside world.

Creature Competition
Ok so I came up with this new creature and was kinda pleased with it, but I have never been too good at coming up with creature stats, So I figured why not ask you lot to come up with a good ecology, stat block and abilities for it. I have completed a sample set of stats which you can copy and edit, then email back to me. There is no prize at stake, just the satisfaction of being chosen. Good luck and enjoy.
