December 11th, 2014

We’re going out with a bang this year. The final Exotic Encounter of the year is one of only a handful of creatures to break the CR 20 barrier. The skittering behemoth is the newest member of the behemoth family, but don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security, as it’s a truly terrifying monster.

If you haven’t guessed, today’s Obscure Arcana is all about spells of speed!
