Meenlocks are a heavily-mutated abomination of unknown origin. They are 2
foot tall bipedal creatures covered in black, shaggy fur with a prehensile
tail. Their heads are white, cut with dark ridges. They have huge, bulbous,
milky-white eyes and insect-like mandibles. Their hands and feet have three-
toed claws. In total, they present a horrid appearance. Although the Meenlock
has infravision, it's diminished sight limits its range of vision

Meenlocks will usually encounter other creatures as they forage for food at
night or underground (as well as foraging for junk which they cannot use, but
collect and store in small alcoves around their lairs). If an adventurer is
lucky (or unlucky) enough to track one to its lair, the opportunities and
risks are described below.

Meenlocks make their lairs in dark, sealed vertical shafts either in natural
subterranean caverns, or in buried ruins of the ancients. If a sealed shaft
is broken into, the bottom of the shaft will usually be too deep to see with
normal vision. Because the shaft is lined with a spongy moss-like substance,
anything dropped into it will land noiselessly. This moss-like substance is
actually a secretion of the creature that carries a poison of the same
intensity as that delivered by the claw/bite. While the claw/bite poison is
insinuative and must be delivered after inflicting a minimum 1 point of
damage, this secretion poison is delivered by a simple contact vector. The
secretion gains its spongy consistency as layers of it build up over the
years and semi-solidify. Any junk or artifacts stored in the lair will be
covered with this poison as well, and many an adventurer has defeated a
Meenlock, only to be paralyzed while picking up an artifact, then devoured
by the surviving members of the Meenlock's family.

If their lair is invaded, Meenlocks will use every mutation at their
disposal, to scare, intimidate, trick, devolve, or gas their opponent(s)
into running away. If forced to fight, Meenlocks will defend their lairs
to the death. Meenlocks forage and hunt in packs and will attempt to use
their mental mutations to bombard, confuse, and overcome intelligent
