Insects

Monsters: Insects

Otherwise known as "bugs," insects are invertebrates that typically have a hardened exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), several pairs of legs and compound eyes. Many insects are capable of biting or poisoning and some can grow to truly monstrous sizes:

    • Bite (no damage) + Weak Poison (100% chance per hit)

Description: Larger versions of the normal sort, giant centipedes are two to three feet long and fast-moving predatory, venomous arthropods, having long segmented bodies with exoskeletons. They prefer to live in underground areas, shadowy forested areas and other places out of direct sunlight (although there are desert-dwelling varieties that hide under the sand). Giant centipedes tend to attack anything that resembles food, biting with their jaws and injecting a weaker poison.

    • Claws (1d10)
    • Claws (1d10)

  • Special Defenses:
    • Immune to Charm Person
    • Immune to Hold Person

Description: Giant scorpions are quite large, sometimes as large as a donkey. They are aggressive predators and generally attack on sight. If a claw attack hits, the giant scorpion receives a +2 attack bonus with its stinger (but two claw hits do not give a double bonus). Giant scorpions are most commonly found in desert areas or caverns.
