A foul type of undead that is sometimes used as a divine punishment for evil, gluttonous souls. One of the most foul types of undead Gutdragging Lurchers thankfully are not a particularly common form of undead.
Gutdragging Lurchers look like normal if not slightly bloated corpses with one large exception. The abdomen is always ripped open with its now animated entrails protruding from this horrible wound. This viscera pulses with a life of its own wetly gropping at their surroundings. When in combat this hideous tendrils become effective weapons.
Habitat & EcologyEdit
It is believed that Gutdragging Lurchers were originally created by some twisted necromancer but have begun rising spontaneously since. These spontaneous undead are normally created from a gluttonous corpse who soul was also stained with other sins, after the death of these people their own entrails animate and tear their way out of the corpses stomach, hungry for more victims. Gutdragging lurchers method of feeding is one of the most disturbing aspects of this foul beast. It feeds by forcing its animated intestines down the throat of its victim then pulling out their intenstines to add it to their collection of animate viscera. Despite the inhuman foulness of their feeding methods gutdragging lurchers are quite intelligent. If rumours are to be believed one of the crime lords of Absalom's Floatsam District is actually a Gutdragging Lurcher.
