Morrowind Monsters: Beasts of the Waters


Mudcrabs are hard-shelled creatures, smaller than humans but still big enough to still be dangerous. They are commonly found near water around Morrowind. Mudcrabs usually attack man-sized prey if they feel threatened, but a mudcrab tastes human or demihuman flesh even once it becomes a maneater until death – this behaviour usually gets it killed before too long.

  1. I once saw a Dreugh stuck twixt sea and land. I left it alone, not wanting to interfere in nature's plans.
