A gamer once asked Bruce Heard why Green Slimes would not infest every forest. Bruce answered; Have you ever heard of the Green-Slime-Guzzler. We learned then that it can’t be used as a familiar, but what actually is a Green-Slime-Guzzler, and how does it live.
Undead are somehow linked to the realm of Limbo (also a very interesting subject of our great master Bruce Heard), but which undead, is linked how, and all those undead you once heard of but actually know nothing of.

You’ve penetrated the Evil tower of Soth. You touch the walls, they feel strangely organic but then you feel not so friendly any more, strange thoughts invade your mind. What is going on?
