Monster conversion: Sandman

Posted on September 11, 2016 by


Here’s another monster conversion, this time the Sandman, which first appeared in 1e’s Fiend Folio, and was later taken into 2e’s Al Qadim setting in a boxed set called “Assassin Mountain”.

The Sandman’s a siscreen-shot-2016-09-11-at-1-46-57-ammple monster, it’s an elemental made of sand who basically puts people to sleep. In 2e, their lore was expanded and made them slaves to the dao genies.

I kept their basic stat block, didn’t try to expand on it much, keeping the monster mostly in line with its 1e/2e feel. There is a Sandman in Kobold Press’ Tome of Beasts, but it’s a different take on the creature.

Find my version of the Sandman here.
