What is a Grothlut in Pathfinder 2e? Sluglike abominations, grothluts are fleshwarps that were once humans. While their head and torsos are vaguely human, their arms are rubbery and move awkwardly at their sides. Wretched creatures, moan piteously when other creatures are near, perhaps as the last remnants of their shattered human consciousness pleads to be free from their horrid warped form.

What is a Grothlut in Pathfinder 2e?

Use For Shock Troops In Combat

Many fleshwarpers consider the grothlut to be a failure of creation, as the transformation all but stamps out the human consciousness. Others disagree, arguing that warping the creature’s mind makes it all the more useful since its stupidity makes it pliable and easy to herd. Drow typically use grothluts as guardians that slowly patrol the edges of their enclaves. Once in position, grothluts can be used as crude shock troops, unleashed to soften enemy forces before more-valuable warriors wade in and cut down the enemies who have been nauseated by the grothluts’ exploded organs and flesh.

The Grothlut’s Grasp

The adventurers stumble upon a small village that has been terrorized by a Grothlut, a slug-like abomination that was once human. The creature has been kidnapping villagers, and the adventurers are tasked with tracking it down and rescuing the villagers. The Grothlut’s lair is filled with the remnants of its past life, providing clues to its origin and perhaps a way to reverse its transformation.

The Alchemist’s Request

A renowned alchemist hires the adventurers to capture a Grothlut. The alchemist believes that the Grothlut’s unique physiology could be the key to a powerful new potion. The adventurers must track down the Grothlut, subdue it, and bring it back alive. However, they soon discover that the Grothlut is not the mindless beast it appears to be.
