# APPEARING: 10-40
ARMOR CLASS: 7
HIT DICE: 1
ATTACKS: Bite & blood drain 1-4
SPECIAL: Attach (see below)
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic evil
Said to be the transformed bodies of those ensorcelled by the Hag-Concubines of the Babbling King, the Leech-things are man sized, liver-colored flatworms with the bald, earless head and face of an angry toothless man. When agitated they make a stuttering repetative "Buh... Buh... Buh... Buh..." sound while large bubbles of mucous emerge from their slack mouths.
While in combat Leech-things rear up and attempt to bite their victims, chewing into them with horny cartiliginous mouthparts; on a successful hit the Leech-thing will have attached itself to it's victim, automatically inflicting 1-4 points of damage on subsequent rounds and impairing their victim (who suffers a -2 penalty to armor class and attacks) until slain or torn off (which requires a free hand and a successful open doors roll, but will also inflict 1-2 points of damage upon the victim).
It is said that the servitors of the Babbling King use these wretches as a currency in their dealings with depraved sorcerers; extradimensional entities; and other factions of the Court of Change.
