You see a rabbit with the webbed feet of a duck, along with a duck's bill instead of a rabbit's snout. Why? WHY?!
Apprentice wizards need to start somewhere. These little guys are made in practice by mages of a specific disposition who would like to create the next ubiquitous hybrid beast to haunt low-level adventurers. They do this instead of following their master's instructions on owlbear creation so it doesn't eat them — on the low chance that he doesn't botch the experiment and finish with a dead-in-a-minute, jiggling flesh ooze covered in feathers.
These aren't the only inane things to come out of a magic college. In about a mile around the grounds, expect to find: toadsalmon, cricketfinches, hummingcornsnakes, and octokittens (no claws, see, so they can't kill all those level 1 wizards).
Hey, you heard of my new band, Jiggling Flesh Ooze? Our demo track is entitled Feathers In A Pile.
Err, about that. One of these guys are a worthy challenge for a toddler. If your squalling teenage stone hatchet swinger feels the need to feast on the blood of screeching rabbitmallards (they may have bills, but still have the vocal cords of a bunny, and have you heard what they sound like when they're scared or in pain? like a little girl who dropped her ice cream. oh ho ho, chilling stuff) then you seriously need to send Tucker's Kobolds after him and his party because… just because, okay?
Skills: Duckbunnies have a +4 racial bonus to Swim checks, because why not.
- Low Level: The first pit trap in the player's first dungeon crawl is full of starving duckbunnies thanks to the depredations of the local goblin shaman.
- Mid Level: A quarter-fiend, quarter-dragon, monster of legend, brobdingnagian duckbunny is let loose in town square!
