[Back to creatures]

Individual beasts may pose formidable adversaries or faithful allies. Adventurers must also keep a sharp eye out for any signs of swarms. Typically made up of small animals of the same species, swarms can be especially tricky to fight, as swinging a sword at hundreds of bats will only do so much.

Swarms have DR/AOE. This stands for “Area of Effect” and means they apply their DR to all damage except damage that targets more than one creature, such as the Fireball spell.
