Fantastical Beast Visual Generator

Much easier to navigate google doc version: 



Roll a d4 and a d10 for each table (There is two: Form of the Beast and Aspect of the Beast).
Combine results for a fantastic beast. 
Examples at bottom of post. 

Form of the Beast: 



Aspect of the Beast: 

Examples:
+
A roiling and bubbling suit of animated armour, ever melting and reforming. 

+

Giant flying bugs that feed on magical energy. Becoming visible and active when spells are cast and burrowing themselves into the closest wizard. 



+

Ghosts of long dead wyrms that form in the dying ashes and coals of a campfire. They will completely coalesce in the early hours and wreck havoc with a mocking grin.  

Update: An illustrated example:

=
Lurking Man Trap
HD 5, 4 in 6 chance of being hidden in swampy regions, AC: 12 on land, 14 beneath the water. 4 x tail/tentacle attacks a round (1d4 each), if a target is surprised by the lurking man trap or successfully attacked by 2 or more of its tail/tentacles in a round Save Vs Paralyze or stuffed into maw (die in 1d4 rounds due to gastric juices).
