Spoilsbugs

By:

Adventurers and Beetles both quest after the same things. The Beetles tend to win.

Full Description
Spoilsbugs are fist sized black beetles which normally burrow through the earth like moles and live on all kinds of minerals which they chew up with razor-sharp mandibles.

Whilst they eat all metals, their favorite food is gold, silver and other precious and semi-precious metals. The will also nibble on rock with high metal contents. They will also eat most crystal (like gems and crystal).

They are very slow walking about. They tunnel through stone at about the same speed. However, they are relentless.

They can give a nasty bite with their mandibles, although they only ever bite living things in self-defence. Their bodies are so hard that when attacked, they roll into a ball and can survive being stomped on, being struck with swords, and being thrown around.

Ouch, I hit a vein of sketchy MH ideas transferred from V1. I like most of these, but this is YET another partially finished post. Needs more work.

It is pretty minimalist post, but I like the idea. I remember the rust monster from D&D long ago (I actually found a plastic rust monster toy in my sandbox when i moved into a new house when i was 4!). Anything to take away the players' treasure. If your party gets too rich, an enemy could easily obtain a few of these and make them quite sad. But this makes me wonder how much could they eat? Given enough time, a lot right, but that makes me wonder (i'm serious).. what comes out the other end? I mean, the PCs come back to a vault with no gold, but full of... what? How does on digest gold? Or does it come out ionized (like a gold ion salt solution).

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
