Fantastic Beasts and How to Slay Them: Chizpurfle

When I first decided I wanted to convert all the Fantastic Beasts into Dungeons & Dragons monsters, I was thinking of all the giant spiders, snakes and cats. But today it’s a tiny crab. And that’s okay too…I guess.

To be fair, the Chizpurfle does have a few little quirks for me to work on. It’s drawn towards magic, gorges itself on magic items and hangs out in large swarms. That’s not so bad.

Even in a swarm, the Chizpurfle isn’t a terrible threat. The harm they can do to magic items does however make them something to be weary of, and will definitely make for an interesting side-quest in the early days of a campaign.
