Solitary, often found wandering subterranean halls far from its natural habitat. Highly intelligent, the sage speaks a variety of languages, including Common, Draconic, Low Deeptongue, High Lowtongue, Hatespeech, and Alvish.
The sage is not naturally aggressive, though it will defend itself with its spell-like abilities when provoked. It prefers to meander and observe, covering long scrolls in “ecology” tracts describing other monsters. It will then exchange these via a crude barter system for copper pieces from a Greater Editor.
Mating habits: none.
Item creation: Properly pulverized, the brain of the common sage is the basis for a potion of beards.
