Dripping undead horrors that can be encountered in ASCII's 1993 Uiza-dorii Gaiden III: Yami no Seiten (Wizardry Side Story III: Scripture of the Dark) Nintendo Gameboy role playing video game. Said title was one of the many Wizardry spinoffs published exclusively in Japan.
Callers are the reanimated corpses of unfortunate souls that died in swamps, bogs, and other stagnant bodies of water. While they may appear to be solidly built, in reality, the bulk of a Caller's body is not flesh, but tangled muck and slime from its watery grave, which continuously drips from the creature's rubbery bones and puddles around its feet (all that gunk slows it down, but it also serves to protect the monster, resulting in a natural AC of 5.) If the trail of vile fluid that a Caller leaves behind doesn't alert you to its presence, the terrible, dank stench that emanates from its waterlogged frame will.
As far as the undead are concerned, Callers rank near the bottom of the carnal heap in terms of overall power. They seldom pose much of a threat to anyone but common folk and the greenest of adventurers. A Caller's only means of attack are its slimy fists, which deal a mere 2 points of damage each; more often than not, these soggy blows prompt disgust, rather than fear, in their intended victims. Nearly mindless, these creatures exhibit little tactical imagination in battle, beyond the tendency to call (pun intended) out for additional Callers to join the fight, in the vain hope of overwhelming their prey with sheer numbers (in practice, reinforcements generally result in little more than a bigger pile of slain Callers.) While these dripping abominations usually stick with their own kind, they have been known to associate with other undead monster species, typically Banshees, Skeletons, or Wights.
