|A hideous conglomeration of mangled body parts, possessed and altered in ways that challenge sanity. Each varies in speed and durability by the nature of whatever unfortunates were used to make it.|
Large abominations are enormous piles of roughly connected humanoid body parts, animated by necromantic and demonic forces. Because of the random approach to their creation, they have variable capabilities, with speed, AC, EV, and HP being different for each abomination. Even so, they always deal significant damage in melee, much more than small abominations are capable of, and the fact that they may have above-average speed can make them difficult to escape. They are commonly found in the Abyss, and some monsters may create them if they have access to sufficient corpses and the Twisted Resurrection spell. Large Abominations do not heal naturally, instead they regain hitpoints by fusing with crawling corpses and macabre masses.
