I thought I’d put up a short post to share one of the monsters from the finale of my adventure trilogy (Descent Into Darkness – coming soon!). This is a minion called the digger
The digger is a big underground bug with nasty pincers that it can use to burrow through rock – or grab unwary PCs. They tend to show up in large groups, sometimes used as tunnel-builders for drow or duergar. When a digger grabs hold of its prey, it may very well try to drag it back to its nest for dinner, with the unfortunate victim kicking and screaming the whole way.
Diggers often like to tunnel beneath their foes, causing them to fall in shallow pits. This makes it easier for the bugs to grab hold of the victim to drag it away.
