An aboleth is an eel-like creature in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting of 'Dungeons And Dragons'.
The creature is malevolent and has potent psionic abilities. These creatures are also huge, reaching up to 20 feet in length and weighing up to 6,500 pounds.
The Forgotten Realms campaign setting consists of several Aboleths and in this blog, we'll take you through all their names. However, before we start discussing the names of Aboleths, we'll tell you all about what they look like, what their abilities are, and how their psychology works.
Aboleths are best described by comparing them to eels. However, they do have other physical characteristics that make them unique, such as their strange bodies, which are long and tubular, their rear tails and their dual fins around their heads. Their lamprey-like mouths also make them look quite scary, particularly due to their serrated teeth. They are multi-colored too, with sea-green topsides and orange-pink underbellies.
Many Denizens living in the Far Realm boast of psionic powers and the same goes for Aboleths. The greatest power an Aboleth can use is to secrete a mucus-like fluid that transforms their victims into mindless servants. This is the main aim of Aboleths in the game, they want to regain the thrones they once lost by enslaving people and forcing them to worship and obey them. Through the use of this strange magic power, Aboleths can keep adding new slaves who are called Aboleth Servitors.
They also have the magic power of retaining the memories of their ancestors and gaining new memories by assimilating their victims' memories. When they don't have much to do, they like to relive the events experienced by their ancestors. Aboleths communicate in an undefined Aboleth language.
What makes Aboleths so deadly is their potent mix of cruelty and intelligence, which they use remarkably well to defeat their enemies. They also know when to take a step back from engaging in conflict, particularly when they are faced with more powerful enemies.
