Solitary, Stealthy, Construct
Hit Points: 8
Armor: 1 (ignores piercing damage)
Sickle (d8 Damage, Close)
When a Scarecrow is on fire, its sickle does fire damage, ignoring armor.
When a Scarecrow walks between the rows to stalk its prey, the sound it makes seems to come from all directions at once.
“I would slay each living creature
The farmer, baker, teacher,
And fill the world with pain
All the things I’d be killing
Life would be so very thrilling
If I only had a brain.”
A scarecrow’s duty is implicit in its name. A scarecrow yearns to frighten, as much as old clothing and straw can yearn. Much as a stuffed animal can receive a child’s love, a scarecrow can receive a farmer’s fear and desperation. And just as a velveteen rabbit can be “loved real”, a scarecrow can be “feared real”.
