Replaces one Terror.
I will be glad for any comments.
She is very different from other monsters and may be bit overpowered.

I made this together with BGG user bumyong.

Actually, I believe she's rather weak. So about on par. You have 0 defense, good, makes sense. Theoretically she'll die in one or two hits. Sure you have to hit a 6+, but a lot of classes start with 3 Spirit. I would say it would still die in one turn with a hero squad of 4. No fear or terror, so if done correctly, could kill her with zero damage tallied up. I'm not saying she's not interesting in flavor, and she can do some interesting stuff. I just don't see her on par with a Night Terror. Also, a few template changes of the wording to make it more on par with other sheets

Thanks, I think her lives could be buffed up a bit, perhaps to 9.
Or I could make her a glass cannon and up the Sanity damage to 2.
Would it be better?

Note that I assume, that all ranged monsters start behing the non-ranged ones unless noted. Given that, darkness activation and good initiative she might get more of the action before graciously departing.
She also is quite a better "spawner" than a Corpse Pile.

Could you please be more specific about the template changes?

You could start a thread similar to my Jargono Swamp Village and work through the whole set of Descent minis, I'm sure many people would be willing to contribute for artwork and/or content!

Otherwise, I agree that she seems rather weak.

And I'd really like to see the artwork with a transparent background instead of a rectangle. You have a link to the original?

Fantastic idea, we can try it.

Problem with the artwork is that I was not able to find any better on the net. If somebody has a better version I will gladly use it.

I'm saying if you link the image you used someone can easily get rid of the brown background!
