Savage Rifts


These creatures appear to be part hairless gorilla, part snake, and part slug, but they are nothing short of pure evil, killing and torturing for pleasure and many will often attempt to enslave a town or tribe of lesser beings. While some will associate with Devil Unicorns, they more often join forces with bloodthirsty bandits and mercenaries, evil sorcerers, and demons.

Slitherers are often encountered in small packs of 4-6 and will lay a careful ambush.
