In the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, the boobrie is a magical beast loosely based upon the boobrie of Scottish Highlands folklore. It is a giant relative of the stork (12 feet tall), and lives in swamps and marshes. It attacks by finding a tall patch of grass, hiding in it, and waiting for prey to come. The boobrie hardly ever attacks humanoids, instead sustaining itself on catfish, snakes, lizards, giant insects, and other wetland dezinens. The boobrie, due to things it has been forced to eat in lean times, is immune to poison. It has some magical properties.
Boobries cannot speak, and they are neutral in alignment.
