Assumed to be a horribly mutated offshoot of the Hideous Boar (ML Rulebook, page 63), the Repulsive Shugorthur is a monstrous pig-like beast. It stands 7 feet tall at the shoulder and has three eyes in the center of its face, right under its second mouth set in the center of its forehead. The Shugorthur has a pair of sharp black horns on top of its head and two rows of horns that run down its back. It has an additional eye set in the tip of its tail, and its bottom mouth constantly seeps with a foul-smelling acidic saliva.

The Shugorthur attacks by biting with its two mouths for 2d8 hit points each. It can also rear up and slash with its sharp front claws for 2d6 hit points each. If it wishes, it can instead attack by charging a target and goring it with its horns for 3d10 hit points of damage. With its three eyes on its face and the additional one on its tail, the Shugorthur has 360-degree vision, allowing it to see in all directions at once. When awake, it is impossible to surprise or sneak up on the beast. And, like a Hideous Boar, the Repulsive Shugorthur's saliva does 2d10 acidic damage to anything it comes into contact with.

Mutations: 360-degree vision, toxic weapon

NOTE: This creature was inspired by the post-apocalyptic, sword-and-sorcery cartoon "Korgoth of Barbaria." Let's see how much material a 22-minute pilot can provide us! Stay tuned for future installments of Korgothursday!
