A D&D Monster Sketch A Day...er sort of - Day 4
Ok, so doing one of these everyday is not realistic. I'll try nonetheless. So this is the Peryton. For years I thought this was one of the monsters that Gygax adapted from a Japanese toy monster like the Rust Monster. In fact, it is a creature from Jorge Luis Borges' Book of Imaginary Beings which has its roots in medieval legend.
Thanks for lookin'!
