Some days it’s a majestic phoenix… some days it’s a fish with legs…
A fish that is mildly dangerous to snails and swimming costumes and not much else. A fish whose legs are its main mode of transportation and its greatest weakness. A fish that people would rather tie up and send down the river than catch and eat. It’s not quite flobberworm territory, but it’s bobbing pathetically alongside that line.
There’s not a lot of reason to include Plimpy in your adventure. Maybe the group is wading through a stream when they feel something nip them: what was that? Help! Oh no wait, it’s just a fish with legs. I’m okay. Or perhaps the group of level 1 heroes are given this quest to emphasise how unwelcome their help is in this part of the world? I’m not sure why anyone would actually need help against a creature that you can incapacitate with their own limbs.
Technically, classing the Plimpy as a ‘beast’ creature type means that you can summon several of them to aid you in battle, or the druid can transform into one. Why you would do this is largely a mystery to me.
