Lesser bonedrinkers vaguely resemble the goblins from which they spawned, just as bonedrinkers vaguely resemble bugbears. However, just as with bonedrinkers, no one confuses a lesser bonedrinker for a new species of goblin. More so than any goblinoid, lesser bonedrinkers resemble their larger cousins, with the same gray skin, sharp fangs, tentacles, and oozing sores that the larger breed possesses.

Lesser bonedrinkers result from applying the necromantic bonedrinker ritual to goblins. These smaller specimens stand about 3 to 3-1/2 feet tall and weigh about 35 pounds.
