Twisted and mysterious creatures have been unleashed upon the land with the unveiling of Mondainís Legacy. These are but a few of the monsters that will do their best to destroy you as you journey into Heartwood.



Chief Paroxysmus
A gigantic king, ruling from the underworld has returned to the surface bringing the four D's with it - Death, disease, disruption and disillusionment. His breath kills all flora and fauna in his wake. His skin leaks poison, his heart is pure ice. Everything in his path dies.

Additional details about this creature can be found in our UO STRATICS HUNTER'S GUIDE: Chief Paroxysmus



Dread Horn
A terribly tainted unicorn, Dread Horn is a tremendously dangerous foe. His once beautiful horn is now cracked and misshapen, it drips poison. When used as a weapon, it does hideous damage injecting virulent toxins into the flesh of his enemy.

His previously pristine gleaming coat is now a velvet back covering equine proportions that are askew in disturbing ways to make room for large tumorous growths.

Lady Melisande
Lady Melisande was once a dryad devoted to a powerful tree in Yew. The swamps destroyed her tree and her lands, cursing her in the process. Her touch upon the land now taints and corrupts.

While Lady Melisande may have lost all her beauty, she is nonetheless extremely formidable. Her power, once used for the good of nature, is now entrenched in the evil that causes her immortal pain. Her spindly fingers clutch at the souls of humans and Elves venturing in her path.

Monstrous Interred Grizzle
The unfortunate result of a death ritual gone awry, a Monstrous Interred Grizzle is the remains (and quite literally the remnants) of man, beast or monster partially returned to life after some time has been spent buried beneath the land.

Monstrous Interred Grizzles are a giant melting pot of nasty body bits. Sloughing skin, trailing wet organs and missing (or misshapen) bones are common sights of these creatures. They leave a path of blood and other viscous fluids in their wake. This creature is a walking, oozing sore.

Additional details about this creature can be found in our UO STRATICS HUNTER'S GUIDE: Monstrous Interred Grizzle.



Travesty
This powerful creature has no physical appearance of its own but instead takes the shape of another creature/human within proximity. Some legends suggest that the abilities and skills are mimicked as well, making the Travesty difficult to distinguish from the creature it is copying.

Additional details about this creature can be found in our UO STRATICS HUNTER'S GUIDE: Travesty.



Shimmering Effusion

This creature coalesces into rod-like particulate structures or spokes of light when feeding. The 'body' of this creature is constantly flowing and changing. It does not have a solid form.

This creature is not endemic to any specific region. Rather, it will move into areas infected with greed, evil and corruption and feed. The magnitude of a Shimmering Essence's power is dependant on the malevolence of its surroundings.
