Krayt Dragon

SPOILER ALERT!
























































Season 2, Episode 1 of the Mandalorian features a cool monster -- the Krayt Dragon. So, here's my Mighty Protectors write-up of it, although this version has to be a smaller version than the one shown in the show because Size Change A) Larger only goes to a maximum of 61 feet.

The Krayt Dragon doesn't have a great chance to hit but remember that its two main attacks, biting and acid spray, are both area effect attacks -- which get a +6 bonus to hit.

Please note that the Tunneling ability comes from the New MP Abilities document that can be found at: http://monkeyhousegames.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/New-MP-Abilities-4-2.pdf
