Sweet, although I was hoping for PC-race stats. :smallwink:

I would have expected Rancid Spurt to be more of an Encounter power. Either way, its effect is way too nasty-strong. High-level monsters would bring one of these along with them just for that effect ... even if it would only hit their foes on a 20. Stunned for 2d4 rounds? With that big of an area?

Might I suggest, in 4e monster style:

stunned, save ends. Aftereffect: The target is dazed, (save ends) and make a secondary attack.

....Why? Just just....why?

Are they still helpless if turned over? Does their upper-side have an AC of 0?

I think Flumphs are large sized. Or maybe medium. they seem like that in OOTS.

I was using the stats presented in the Dungeon #118 adventure, "Box of Flumph." The adventure lists them as tiny, and "Rancid Spurt" causes nausea. Without such a condition in 4e, I went with the thing that made sense.

Given that I wrote it at, say, 0500, I think I did pretty well.

EDIT: Changed the initial effect to "(save ends)"

Just to keep the flavor right, you should include an at-will melee Impaling attack that can only be used against creatures one size class smaller than them or smaller.

For advance flumphs they should perhaps have an encounter/recharge power that lets them target the feet for caltrop-like effect.

EDIT: Changed the size to small.
