Mike Mearls posted this Tweet about Nentir Vale monsters on Twitter:
Mike Mearls on Twitter wrote:Two critters for my campaign, creatures spawned by Torog. As written Torog is the god of the Underdark and torture in the Nentir Vale setting, I made him a fiend entombed underground by a curse. His frantic burrowing and malign nature created the Underdark.

He went on to say this:
Mike Mearls on Twitter wrote:Wrack spawn are what is left of humanoids that fall into into his clutches - skin flayed, limbs twisted and broken, turn their pain on others.


...and this:
Mike Mearls on Twitter wrote:Lash fiends are lesser servitors, torturers who thrive on the wrack spawns’ pain. They drive them forward with cruel whips to seek out more victims for their master.

I've used these in my Nentir Vale campaign. Great body horror opportunity, if your group is up for it.

Ah, so they are pre-existing 4e monsters. I had not heard of them.

They debuted in 4e's Underdark sourcebook as minions of Torog.

I hope they release this stuff, like a plane shift article or an UA article, really.

That would be a great start. I'd love a full Nentir Vale adventure, published in hardcover, opening the DM's Guild up for fan content. Giving this the full "Tomb of Annihilation treatment," they would concurrently offer a dozen of Guild Adept products on the release date of the adventure to supplement all the Nentir Vale goodness.

Hey, a guy can hope, right?
