The Corpse Bug Solitary, Small, Terrifying
Proboscis Strike (d8 damage 2 piercing) 12 HP 1 armor
Special Qualities: After the corpse bug drains its prey of all fluids, it attaches the husk of its victim to its back in a macabre form of armor.

The Corpse Bug has a proboscis that it uses to impale prey and then sucks out it's prey's fluids in order to feed.

If you are damaged by a Proboscis Strike, roll Defy Danger to dislodge the proboscis from yourself. On a 10+ you do it without further harm, on a 7-9 you do it but choose one:

  • You got hit hard, take 2 more damage

  • The bug got a small taste of you, take a debility

  • Your armor is damaged and of no use until you repair it.

On a miss, the bug starts to feed. Take another 1d4+1 damage and try to get away again.

Instinct: To Feed

  • Impale with Probscis
  • Scuttle away to a dark place
  • Attack by surprise
