Gibbering mouther

From PathfinderWiki
Gibbering mouther

Gibbering mouthers are revolting mounds of eyes and mouths that yammer on unceasingly, slowly driving anyone around them insane. Some think they are a lesser version of a shoggoth, while others believe that they were sent by the gods as punishment for some forgotten transgression. Never satiated, they roam caves, sewers, and other underground locations searching endlessly for food. They have an intelligence similar to a lesser human's and can speak Aklo, one of the languages of the Darklands.[1]

On Golarion

These foul aberrations have been spotted in underground environments throughout the Inner Sea region, including beneath the antediluvian city of Kaer Maga in Varisia,[2] the ruins of Nal-Kashel off the coast of Cheliax,[3] and the Darklands realm of Sekamina and the Orvian Vaults.[4] A berserk gibbering mouther named Galulab'daa is said to serve the god Rovagug in his prison deep below the surface of Golarion.[5][6]
