Adventures in Torril
The beetles wore a golden bridle and carried huge leather sacks of stone and guano. The line of them marched without stopping, dozens, even hundreds, bringing fresh earth to the white fungus trees of the great forests. Their claws skittered with a sound like horseshoes slipping on stone, but their six legs ensured they never fell. The air around them singed the nostrils with the taint of acid.
Used as pack animals and even mobile weapon platforms, Carrion Beetles are massive burrowing insects known for their armor-like shells and potent digestive acid. Normally non-aggressive, these natural scavengers are fierce foes when threatened, however, and under the goad of their imperial handlers can be truly terrifying foes.
