This intelligent brutish beast kills for pleasure far more than it can eat. Capable of ferocious roars that three times a day case fear in a 9 range cone. These creatures also speak cruelly and are judgemental, able to recognise heraldry and a character origin so it can mock and insult enemies all the better. They will eat your loved ones and blame it on you for not being home. They spread terror and isolate people depending on roads in the wilderness.

They are not just random monsters they are usually agents of a curse such as a defiled grave, a great injustice resulting in deaths or some taint has polluted a sacred place. Sometimes they may aid a devil or evil hero acting as a pet or mount. They hate hellhounds and dislike demons and their dumber cousins manticores. They see themselves as obeying a higher power and exempt from morality. Some have been known to whisper lies through shack walls at night to irritate and corrupt inhabitants.

Mantygre Adventures
1 A village is plagued by a beast as the unsolved strangulation of local youths remains unsolved
2 Villages visit a whispering cave for advice but of late all the advice has been selfish, greedy and evil
3 A invisible Imp has been leaving threatening letters on doors in the village, starting at midnight they will all be killed
4 A local diabolic cult have allied with a mantyger planning on cutting off the area and corrupting all to the cult control
5 A ruined manour has been left since a mantyger ate the old lord and drove away the people. The beast is still heard roaring day and night
6 A diabolic wizard riding a mantyger has taken residence in a ruined tower on a hill
7 Pilgrims were murdered and as long as the bandits escape justice a Mantyger guards the bridge preventing passage. Several knights have been eaten by it, more fled it's roar
8 Voices from the well are scaring people. "just jump in! Your life is worthless!"
9 Villagers have been attacking each other, each say a voice told them by night what a neighbour said to provoke the violence
10 A robber knight based in a ruin has taken the mantyger as his flag and now he rides one and wears weird black armour. Locals say he sold his souls and seeks sacrifices and plunder
