Set in the windy exterior of a castle, at dizzying heights Syrinscape's Vrock Battle SoundSet makes for a memorable encounter indeed. The Dungeon Master can foreshadow the coming encounter with "Distant vrock" sounds, and then trigger an intense battle which begins with a heavy metal stinger and merges smoothly into epic fantasy music. The Dungeon Master can trigger, vrock caws, nasty bite sounds, a hideous 'Stunning screech' attack and a sick sounding 'Spore attack'. Players will be reaching for their saving throw die before you even have to say a thing!
From the Monster Manual:
Vrocks are dull-witted, capricious fiends that live only to create pain and carnage. A vrock resembles a giant hybrid of humanoid and vulture, its gnarled, bestial body and broad wings stinking of offal.
Vrocks gobble humanoid flesh whenever they can, stunning potential prey with an ear-splitting shriek, then swooping down to attack with beak and claw. Vrocks can shake their wings, releasing clouds of toxic spores.
Coveting pretty things, vrocks turn against each other for the chance to lay claim to cheap jewelry or ornamental stones. Despite their love of treasure, vrocks are difficult to bribe, seeing no reason to bargain when they can simply take what they want from a would-be bargainer’s corpse.
This SoundSet will appear by default in the Syrinscape Fantasy Player app, but you can make it appear in any of the apps by using the Campaign Manager.
