An excerpt from the SPX Secret Project
The Lorian Gendarme Guidebook for Adventuring Standards
A terrible fate for a stolen child, manbabbies are transformed into confused, rambling giants by goblins to do their bidding. The transformation takes place from one full moon to the next, and seems to involve a diet of troll blood and a lengthy process of leeching, usually on the posterior. This sore spot, which never fully heals, is prodded by goblins to provoke the manbabby into battle. While innocent seeming, manbabbies no longer retain any truly human qualities once they’ve undergone the transformation, as the goblins corrupt the spirit in order to turn the manbabby into their tools for evil. While one might imagine a manbabby is speaking to them, careful listening will discern only a series of babbling nonsense, with no comments indicating higher thought to be heard.
