General Introduction: The Xoaxim Batflatch lives in the jungles of the Ancient Ruins known as Xoax, which in the ancient kender tongue means,"Forest of Flatulence", as beans were their main crop. Batflatches are cloudlike, irridecent creatures that float about stupidly to attract prey.

Combat: Batflatches spit a corrosive acid that can do up to 12 damage. They also can release a poisonous gas that stuns the surrounding enemies. They will only fight when provoked and will never retreat from battle.

Habitat/Society: Batflatches, as the name suggests, live off bats. They "flatch" them by using their innate gas ability. They have all sorts of treasure, but when there is lots of it, it will all be the same kind (like all gold or all gems) because the Xoaxim Batflatches are collectors by nature.

Ecology: The body of a batflatch does not rot, and can be put into a bottle or jar. Bottled Batflatch fetches a high price amongst wizards for potion material.
