Very little of the dark shambler is not thickly muscled. This squat humanoid lumbers through the countryside, surveying the world through glistening black eyes. Were it not for the eyes, the dark shambler could almost be taken for a shadow from a distance, for its skin is also entirely black. The eyes glisten eerily, though, while the rest of the dark shambler is a flat shade of charcoal that appears to absorb the light more than reflect it.

Behind the Scenes

In the I.C.E. Age these were known as "black stalkers." In the Rolemaster bestiaries they are assassins possessed by demons, who will relentlessly hunt down their victims forever, much like a shadow assassin or the dark assassin. Still more similar would be a black reaver, though much less dangerous. When they were first implemented back in 1990 the black stalkers were one of the most powerful creatures in GemStone III.
