Pain Beetle

These overgrown bugs of around 16-inches in length hail from elemental dimensions of earth, dust and sand. While appearing mostly harmless, pain beetles live off the pain and agony of others. The produce a sonic hum from vibrating their wings which can be focused onto a single being in an adjacent hex to attack Spirit. Their prey must make a Resilience save (DC:14) or suffer d3 points of Spirit damage. They can also bite on a d20 to deliver Body damage as a melee attack. However, because the beetle does not wish to kill but rather absorb the pain of others, it attacks physically first, then uses the Spirit vibration attack to feed from the pain. When the victim has reached a Body score below 5, a beetle will break off the attack and leave. Should a beetle attack a victim and render its prey unconscious, the beetle will wander off looking for another target. While the bug’s primary method of movement is scurrying, a pain beetle is capable of short distances of leaping and flight, up to 20 feet.
