Walking through the city at night you’re startled by a bizarre sight. The shadow of an extremely tall rabbit is visible on a nearby wall. Moving quickly, the large creature vanishes into the foul-smelling sewers. Shadow rabbits are constantly hunting the city for their next meal.

Raging Rabbit. These creepy monsters are violent killers and are only active in the dark. Shadow rabbits will usually hunt on the surface at night and underground during the day. They stay out of the sunlight; as it weakens them a great deal.

Egg Shelled. At times, the shadow rabbit will hurl strange dark eggs. A black shadowy tail trails through the air when these bizarre weapons are thrown. The undead creatures create their eggs from shadowy necrotic matter. Shadow rabbits store piles of these eggs in secret hiding places underneath the city.

Hidden Burrow. These evil rabbits live in large hidden burrows in the sewers. A sizeable pile of treasure can usually be discovered in these lairs. Dark eggs, coins, magic items, and gemstones are just some of items that are hoarded.

Undead Nature. A shadow rabbit doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
