Crawlers of the Wastes

By:

"...The spider did win, but his victory was short lived. The Crawler came down from the rocks above and killed him, then eating the Waste Spider, The Rat, and the small bit of jerky that I started this battle royal with. " Exerpt: A Prospector’s Tale, VOL XXIII Blue Guild Press

These eight legged creatures slide along the land. They have a small head with wide spaced eyes and long tentacle legs. Each tentacle has a few suction cups to hold tight to rocks or prey, so their beak can tear into it. Their most important aspect is that they are chameleons: able to change their skin to look like soil, rock, and sometimes a flower. They normally hunt small creatures, usually rats, from surprise.

Crawlers are most prized by the people of the Marches for the dyes they keep in their gland sacks. They are edible, if all glands and organs are carefully removed. Their meat is tasty, but is sooo chewy as to be nearly inedible. Some people keep the somewhat intelligent creatures as pets.

Bag on a Stick

Very simple gag but a great one, since it can be used multiple times over, even in the same adventure. Great for tribal natives gone restless and humanoids, but anyone can have set this up. Just what the header says, a simple bag over a stick stuck in the ground or floor.

As GM you can place the bag on a stick anywhere, in a floor crack the heroes have passed before, outdoors in a clearing or path, or at the edge of the PCs' encampment the following morning, what have you. Place anything on the stick - a coiled yellow viper angered by the bag removal, mini crossbow w/poison, transdermal hallucinatory drug dusted on the bag, yellow mold colony, an NPC ally's head, a weapon, scroll tube or satchel, what have you.

The idea is to build tension and/or stall for time/distract the party. Provided it's used properly, you'll be amazed at how paranoid players will get from this simple gag.
