The yipple is a master of disguise, able to alter form to match its
surroundings. For example, if near any physical object such as a spell
scroll, they will shaftshift into an exact replica of the scroll to the

might be in the area. The Great Monster Uprising gave birth to hordes
of these rabid beasts.
