OSE Encounter Activities - Troglodyte

Today’s table is for Troglodytes. I usually use these malodorous Monsters in dungeons and deep underground caverns (with their relatives, the Lizard Man more likely to be found in Swamps and on the surface). I’ve always enjoyed the trope of a once great and powerful Saurian Civilization where Lizard-based lifeforms ruled the world, and these creatures can represent the degenerate remnants of these once mighty kingdoms (along with Ophidians, Naga, and of course the various Dinosaurs).

Should you need some inspiration for describing the pungent bouquet brought about by their musky secretions, I highly recommend giving a glance to the Bad and Ugly columns of my Three Hundred Smells & Scents table.
