Dretch Tactics[edit]

Dretch fall over each other to mob any single opponent; even if their claws are ineffective, their stinking cloud can defeat an enemy through attrition. Stupid and ineffective, they sometimes simply move to random places on the battlefield. A lone dretch will run to the nearest powerful demon for protection, although it is likely to be either swatted to one side or eaten.

Dretch Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful Arcana check.

DC 15: Dretch overwhelm opponents with smell and numbers,

DC 20: Dretch are some of the lowest level demons in the Abyss.

DC 25: Once, the dretch tried to Rebel against the higher Demons, but the rebellion was destroyed. Still, every once and a while, the dretch form small groups to rebel again.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Dretch are sometimes found milling about on their own, but more often are bullied into the service of a more powerful demon to act as meat-grinder troops.

Level 8 Encounter (XP 1600)[edit]
  • 8 dretch (level 6 minion)
