Quth-maren were undead creatures created from flayed corpses by clerics of Kiaransalee.
With every scrap of skin flayed from their bodies and their exposed muscles incessantly oozing acidic blood, the quth-maren were hideous creatures. Unlike zombies, quth-maren did not decompose.
Intelligent adversaries and vicious in groups, quth-maren had a number of abilities that made them disturbing opponents.
- Caustic Blood
Constantly oozing acidic blood, any unarmed or natural attack that struck the quth-maren in melee would cause the acid to harm the attacker.
- Command Undead
In the same manner that an evil cleric could attempt to command undead, so to could a quth-maren.
- Fast Healing
A quth-maren could rapidly heal from wounds inflicted to it.
- Horrifying Gaze
Any living creature that came within 30 ft (9.1 m) of a quth-maren and met it baleful gaze risked simply cowering in fear at the sight of it.
- Spit blood
In addition to the caustic blood that oozed from its body, a quth-maren could expel a glob of this blood every so often causing it to splash over foes near where it landed.
In 1372 DR, Dorina T'sarran seized control of Szith Morcane and ordered the priestesses of Lolth there to be flayed and transformed into quth-marens.
