â€œYou see a lumbering, 9-foot-tall humanoid, lurching towards you. It's hunched over at the shoulders, itâ€™s arms nearly dragging the ground. Its rubbery skin is the color of green moss, and it has tufts of greenish- black hair....â€

Monsters should give the players a thrilling encounter, but itâ€™s incredibly difficult to convey a fear of the unknown when your players have had the usual assortment of monsters memorized for a decade or more.
