Adventures in Torril
Beetle Swarm, Cave
Scavengers and carrion eaters, the black hard-shelled cave (or “rock”) beetle is little more than a nuisance on its own. Dwarves are even known to roast and eat them out of the shells. However, an entire swarm of cave beetles, such as a stirred up nest, is capable of stripping an animal to the bone in minutes. Such a swarm is relentless, capable of moving quickly along a tunnel floor, wall, or even ceiling in pursuit of prey.
