Worker Android - Medium construct [robot] - CR 1

2019 will see the 30th anniversary of my first ever game of D&D as DM, and my players and I (many of my players were there for that fateful game - the one where I pitted 20th level characters against...a single Troll) are hoping to organise a special weekend game to celebrate the thousands of hours of fun and death we have shared together.

To do this, I am converting the 1st Edition module S3: Expedition to the Barrier Peaks to 5e, with the hopes of running it over a weekend. I'm still doing the ground work - converting monsters and items, and I thought I would share the stats for one of the monsters from that module - the Worker Android.

I've done my best to keep the vulnerabilities outlined in the original, and have tweaked it to better fit in with the more modern mindset. All in all, I am quite pleased. Hope you are too!

Ethereal Slayer - Medium Monstrosity (CR 7)

"We were just sat there, trying to negotiate a deal with Abbeth when suddenly, without any kind of warning, the air behind and above him warped and shifted and...this....thing...came through and grabbed him. It was like a spider and a lobster had the child from Hell, and it leaned into our world from wherever it came from, hauled the crime lord up, and retreated back, taking him with it!
"Then, the air just fixed itself, and it, and Abbeth were gone.

"All in all, probably the best outcome for our meeting really." 

- "Nighthawk Jimmy", Rogue

Ethereal Slayers are found in 3.0's Monster Manual II, and are monstrous hunters that lurk in the Border Ethereal, waiting for prey to come "close" in the physical plane. They then drop into that reality, grab them, and retreat back to their own universe with their prize. 

Anyway, I statted these up for one of my games and thought I would share. Enjoy!
