Gath (GATH) Large aquatic amphibian, Neutral. This infamous scaly amphibian has a bad reputation. Generally, unless it’s defending its territory, it only wants to be left alone to forage for the swamp rodents, amphibians and fish that make up most of its diet. The gath exhibits the characteristics of large constricting snakes, electric eels and catfish. Most incidents of people being killed by the gath are due to the hapless swamp traveler accidentally stepping on the creature while it’s buried in the muck, and receiving a lethal shock. Gath tend to be shy and try to escape when confronted, but will attack if cornered.
“As you sludge through the swamp, suddenly, the Human seizes up and spasms. He collapses into the muck, and the coils of something scaly and black are seen thrashing in the murky water.”
