My players got to the jubsnuth tonight and that encounter did not go at all like I anticipated.
It emerged into the clearing. I described it's slathering, it's gnashing teeth in both mouths.
Then before I could call for initiative to be rolled, the xenoseeker mystic in the party declared she was casting charm monster on it....
and of course, it failed the saving throw, even with the threatened bonus.
She befriended it, made some amazing rolls on Survival to communicate with it and got it to follow her.
She named it Jubjub.
I had it lick her friendly like... so they lead it into the next encounter with the atrocite.
The atrocite centered his opening spell (cosmic eddy) on the jubsnuth. it failed it's save and so i had it panic and trample in a random direction... which ended up running right over the poor mystic. While the rest of the party engaged the atrocite, the mystic attempted to calm the jubsnuth down and did so successfully. She then tried to coax it to attack the atrocite by luring it towards the strocite by casting Wisp Ally... and that succeeded as well.
Needless to say, that poor atrocite became a meal of the Jubsnuth thanks to swallow whole.
We were laughing pretty hard at that.
