Get Ready

Solid orange eyes greet the characters as begin the descent into the dungeon. The eyes are set into a brilliant yellow and deep green mottled insect.

Get Set

The insect is a Random Estoteric Creature which the party should have never encountered. The body of the insect is slightly longer than 4 feet. A single wing flutters along the back of the creature. The other wing has fallen off to the ground.


The wasp-like creature is huddled near the lowest part of the room. It stares directly at the entrance as if in anticipation. As the party begins to enter the room, the insect will jump (up to 40′) toward the least armored character.

It attacks furiously until landing a successful bite. The creature will not release but will repeatedly attempt to sting the same PC it bit. Upon a successful sting, the creature shudders for a moment and falls to floor.

The creature is seeking to implant its young via the sting. Near the end of its life, it has little interest in survival and only desires a host for its young.

If a PC is stung, they will be infected with 1d2 offspring. The young will begin to grow just under the skin of the host forming a red welt similar to a insect bite. The welt will continue to grow for 2-4 week until it covers a 2-3 inch region. It is very painful especially when aggravated by clothing or armor. At the end of the gestation period, an inch-long wasp will burst from the pustule and fly away.

The parasite infection can be cured as a disease. The stinger welt will impair movement but causes no additional damage beyond the initial attack.
