Vegeygmies return for my second kid group. I used thornies and peons already but this particular encounter involved an adventurer riding a pineto. Was a fun encounter and the characters managed to take control of the pineto as well. I definitely took inspiration (i.e. “theft”) from Dungeonmusers’ pygmies.
