Chokers are small aberrations with elongated arms that they use to choke their prey to death.[1][2]

History[]

Chokers were created during the Age of Monsters by the daelkyr from goblin or halfling stock.[3][4][5][6]

Description[]

Chokers appear to have bodies resembling naked halflings, but with mottled flesh. Their limbs are long and spindly, and end in clawed hands and feet. While their torsos and heads contain bones, their arms and legs are composed entirely of cartilage; this gives the choker a bow-legged gait. Their hands and feet have spiny pads that allow the choker to grip almost any surface.[1]

Society[]

Sages believe that chokers live in a loose tribal structure; a Korranberg-sponsored expedition into Khyber discovered a tribe of sixty chokers living in such an arrangement. Few of the expedition survived to say much more than that.[3] In general, chokers are greedy, especially for their next meal.[1]

Abilities[]

Suffice to say, chokers are great at choking their prey. They fling their appendages at their targets, grabbing them with their tentacle-arms. They then choke the life out of their target. Chokers possess darkvision and are unnaturally quick. They often prefer to ambush their prey from above, using their spiny hands to hang from ceilings, and pounce on their targets at the perfect time.[1]
