You're fighting Bake-Ears, Woodsman Gnawer
A flaming branch falls and blocks your path. You look up and see a werewolf perched halfway up a tree that's mostly fire at this point. "Hey, watch it up there!" you shout, then regret doing so as the wolf pounces, red-hot fangs at the ready.

- The name, image, and introduction text of this monster are all randomly selected:
A red-hot werewolf leaps into the path in front of you. What big teeth he has! And what big eyes he has! In fact, he's big all over, and ready to eat you up!
|You walk across a dry creek bed. It must have gone dry fairly recently and quickly, because there are a few fish still flopping and gasping on the creek floor. You look up the creek to see what might have happened, and see a werewolf sitting on the dried creek bed, looking slightly shocked. "I guess I should have seen that coming," he says, and stands up. His tail lights on fire and heat begins to shimmer above him.
|A huge werewolf leaps from behind a tree and roars at you, its breath so hot it gives you a sunburn. It won't do any good to shoot a silver bullet at this guy--it would melt before it got close to him.
|You see a refreshing little brook crossing the path up ahead. You run up to splash water on your face, but as you're kneeling down, the whole thing turns to steam! "Hey, what's the deal, here?" you shout, unrefreshed (but with nice open pores).
As if in answer, a burning werewolf emerges out of the steam, ready to get all up in your business.
|You follow a trail of charred squirrel and rabbit bones to a barbecue pit that's still smoldering. Oh, and there's a werewolf sitting in the embers, waving at you. He looks pretty full, but also willing to make room for you in his burning belly.
|The hot, dry air in this part of the forest sears your lungs. The trees hang limp and lifeless. You watch a squirrel run out of a hole and onto a branch, then keel over from heat exhaustion. Something's really heated up this little forest glen. Who could it be? Is it Forest Glenn, the firestarter?
Nope, it's a red-hot werewolf that's about to get all up in your business.
|A squirrel runs across your path, up a tree branch, and out on a limb. You leap aside as a werewolf comes crashing through the underbrush after it. He looks up at the squirrel, and howls at it with searing-hot breath. The squirrel drops out of the tree, dead as a very hot doornail. The werewolf werewolfs it down, but then looks hungrily at you. Yipe!
|Man, this part of the forest is so hot it makes you want to howl at the moon! Apparently there's another adventurer in here with the same idea, because an ear-splitting howl breaks the stifling stillness.
Oh, nope, that was just a hot werewolf, coming to rip out your intestines and pan-sear them.
|A flaming pinecone comes whizzing past your head. You spin around and the next one almost takes your nose clean off. You duck behind a bush, but then the bush lights on fire! You leap up and right into the flaming arms of a red-hot werewolf. Some times you just can't catch a break.
|The air in front of you shimmers with heat. It's funny how the mirage plays tricks on your mind--why, it almost looks like a giant werewolf is bounding toward you, red-hot claws ready to tear your guts out.
Yup, that's one persistent mirage. Oh. Oh, crap.
|You follow a trail of charred footprints into the underbrush, then wonder what the heck you did that for when a hot werewolf leaps out at you.
|You start to sweat. Is it hot in this part of the forest, or is it just you? Or is it the flaming werewolf about to attack you?
|A red-hot werewolf steps from behind a tree, his footprints glowing like embers on the ground. He howls at you, his breath hot and dry like a sexy woman giving a boring lecture.
