Biweekly Monster-Mother of all Quippers

Mighty Fish. This massive quipper is easily 30 feet long and can only reside in large bodies of water, such as especially deep lakes, whether on the surface or in dungeon caverns, or in the ocean.

Quipper Queens. At the heart of any great concentration of quippers is a mother quipper. Often this mother will be up river at a large body of water. When encountered, the quippers it births are almost as dangerous as the mother itself. When a mother of all quippers (MoaQ) dies, its unborn spawn viciously tear out of it and attack.

If you want to play this the way my daughters intended, the swarms come out of the MoaQ’s gills.
