A Howlee has two pairs of arms though the lower pair is often thinner from disuse and hidden under their clothing. Howlees have 4 feet but their constant jitteriness impairs their ability to keep all four rooted.

    Howlee often attack from above via ambush. They often lead with ranged attacks then leap on their entanged and poisoned victims.

    Create Poison

    Howlee can produce poison from their mouth which they often apply to their weapons.

The poison has a Fortitude save DC of 14 (Constitution based plus +4 racial bonus) and has an initial and secondary damage of 1d4 Strength damage. A howlee can produce 4 doses of poison a day.


    Webcraft Weapons

    Howlee can produce weblike fluid from under their arms. A howlee can use his lower arms to produce a folded net, a set of bolas, or 2 darts in once every 2 rounds as a free action. A howlee is proficient with weapons made this way and gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls when using them. A webcaft weapon takes 1 round to create and last 5 minutes before breaking. Once thrown, they become stuck to whatever it hits and is useless. A howlee can create 5 webcraft weapons a day.

    More on Howlee.


    Howlee bands often walk through elven lands. The good natured forest howlee often join elven bands and the more vicious cavernous howlees are found in drow slave raids. Howlee rangers often have elves as favored enemies and many howlee clerics worship elven dieties. Because of their low numbers, one must need an elven contact to find a particular howlee. Occasionally a wandering bard might know a thing or two about the howlee.

    Howlee live in small groups lead by a ranger, wizard, or cleric. Both male and female howlee are found in the hunting parties which hunt any available dangerous prey. Howlee are often found dining on magical beasts and large animals. Their armor is often littered with patches of the hides of rare or vicious beasts. This doesn't aid their relations with most druidic groups, so howlee druids are almost nonexistent.

    Muaha, I just thought of Howler Wasps from MMIV, but we shall not speak of that

    They look a touch on the powerful side for a +0 LA race, but you might wanna rely on the advice of people who have been doing this longer.

    You get stuck with 2 monstrous humanoid HD which are pretty much weird warrior levels. Any LA would be mean.
