MENACE MANUAL: Draigs

My players hit the main platform of the excavator yesterday as Hellion threw everything against them including Kulgara, Draigs and the Dark Creeper types. Draigs below.  I added a note on Scrapworth related reinforcements for quick reference though my group went in with 10 Scrapworth so ended up not being relevant.  Draigs was the last combatant on the field and my party were exhausted with two characters down.  They did a Hail Mary move and tried to dominate him – and it worked.  They had access to dominate monster as Many-As-One had sent a swarm in to monitor the progress of the group and decided to intervene.
