Monster of the Week - Estray

The Eberron Bestiary has posted its latest offering, the sinister fey known as the Estray, embodiments of nature's ability to lead even the most adept explorer off course. These creatures enjoy the hunt just as much as the kill, leading explorers far from any help and unsettling them with illusion and brief appearances. These monsters make great encounters for DMs wanting to add a sense of dread to forest expeditions.

Here is a sneak preview:

A hideous troll-like woman darts through the trees. Her frenzied eyes glow like cats’ eyes and teeth like needles jut from her maw.

The estray are cruel fey that embody the entrapment of unspoiled nature. These foul creatures enjoy the hunt as much as the kill itself, luring travellers to their own domains using illusion, compulsion and fear.
Estray are found throughout Eberron, but always in forests. The Eldeen Reaches and Q’barra suffer from these creatures more than any other nation, but sightings in the King’s Forest or Karrnwood are not uncommon. Outside of Khorvaire, both Aerenal and Xen’drik are home to these bloodthirsty fey.
