Boneclaws are bloodthirsty undead that enjoy using their extendable claws to bring death to the living. The lore of the dead does not reveal what dark necromancer's laboratory or nether plane boneclaws entered the world. Perhaps they merely "evolved" from lesser forms.
The boneclaw is an intelligent skeletal undead that possesses exception control over the length of its claws. At will, a boneclaw can extend one or two of its finger-claws to a distance of 20 feet, nearly skewering fleshy creatures that stand in the way.
A boneclaw stands about 8 feet tall and weighs about 300 pounds.
