Post Maw Maw Penguin
This just screamed to be written up when I saw the picture. If for nothing more than snits & giggles.

MAW MAW PENGUIN

No. Appearing: 1 (scout) or 10-100 (mob)
Size: S (18” tall)
Hit Dice: 2d8
Move: 10’ / 50’ swim / 40’ belly toboggan
Armor Class: 11
Attack: Bite (2d6)
Special: Cuteness, Linked Mind, Trip, Twilight Vision
Saves: Physical
Int: Low
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Type: Magical Beast
Treasure: 2
XP: 32+2

Physical Description
Attributes (Str/Dex/Con/Int/Wis/Cha): 10/9/12/8/9/12
At first appearance the Maw Maw Penguin looks like a regular, if slightly larger, Adelie Penguin.
Environment Found
The Maw Maw Penguin is found only in Arctic climates, usually related to the polar coastal regions.
Combat Tactics
The Maw Maw Penguin hunts in a mob. They will use a scout to find prey then surround it as a flock of cute little penguins before they attack with their huge fang filled maws.
Life Cycle
Maw Maw Penguins are the result of magically crossbreeding a penguin with a sea lion with a dash of doppelganger thrown in for good measure. These penguins managed to breed true with others of their kind and have a very similar mating and nesting cycle to regular Adelie Penguins. They tend to be more social due to their linked minds and a tad more aggressive with their more carnivorous instincts.
Their intelligence, while low, is enough to allow them to understand most directions and orders and to overcome basic obstacles. Something most would not expect of a simple penguin. Polar based villains often use Maw Maw mobs as cannon fodder type guards for their lairs or strongholds. A fully grown Maw Maw Penguin weighs approximately thirty pounds.
Diet Preferences
Fish, seal, people, whatever as long as it is fresh meat!
Treasure Habits
Maw Maw Penguins like shiny things and will line their nests with them as decorations. Any treasure found is likely to consist mostly of shiny coins, jewels, and similar objects.
Maw Maw brains are useful components for telepathy potions.

ABILITIES:
Cuteness – Unless the Maw Maw Penguin opens its mouth, it looks just like a normal cute little penguin wanting to innocently play for a bit of fish. The Maw Maw gains a +2 bonus to hit on its first attack due to surprise. (Optionally, the CK may treat the first attack the same as the Rogue’s Sneak Attack ability.)
Linked Mind – The Maw Maw Penguin has a constant mental link with all of the other members of its mob. What the scout knows the entire mob knows. This allows the mob to hunt more efficiently and to avoid approaching danger without risking the entire mob.
Trip – The Maw Maw Penguins will try to trip their prey so the entire mob can swarm over it and bite it to death.

I have to have a Penguin arch-villain now, happily concocting some gelid plot to freeze the world.

Bow before the all powerful C-el, ruler of the frozen north! (something like that?) :lol:

I have to figure out how to use this in my Harvester's game ... my younger daughter LOVES penguins.

Oh to see the look on her face ...
