A carrionstorm is a flock of undead carrion birds, generally crows, that have come back to life after eating the diseased flesh of a ghoul.[1]

Appearance & Description

Mockeries of their living cousins, these undead carrion birds show advanced states of decay and disease. Their molting wings barely hold them aloft, and their eyes glow with a malevolent hunger. Attracted by their rotting flesh, they are generally covered in insects. Unlike crows, a carrionstorm does not caw, and their victims often have only the soft rustle of wings to warn them of their approach.[1]

Habitat & Ecology

A carrionstorm can be found near any area where ghouls are prevalent, such as haunted structures or graveyards. They hunger for the flesh of living things, especially that of humanoids.

For an unknown reason they are drawn to those who worship Urgathoa, the goddess of undeath and disease. They will not attack someone openly carrying a symbol of the Pallid Princess.[1]
