Before Combat Gursplat will pretend to be a slow-witted and cumbersome creature, hoping to make its opponents overconfident. When within range he will charge the least armoured opponent to attempt to grapple him and remove him from combat.
During Combat Gursplat will use its wholeness of body ability to negative early attacks and make it appear as though it has fast healing or regeneration. He tends to concentrate on single opponents until they are defeated.
Morale Gursplat is not a reckless combatant and will retreat to meditate on his failure if reduced to 25 hp.

Gursplat was an otyugh, who while cavorting in his garbage heap began to question the meaning of existence. This inner journey leads him to study the pictures in the books that were thrown in the garbage to gain deeper wisdom of the world. Over time he became more and more reflective and eventually found a master – who was threatened with being devoured – to train him in the ways of the monk.
Options: If using Gursplat as a fully realized NPC character, add equipment and magical gear appropriate for his challenge rating. A belt of giant’s strength and an amulet of mighty fists could really ramp up his damage potential.
