These three-foot long millipedes stand a foot high on a myriad of legs.  Their head is tapered like a widow's peak.  Truly omnivorous, they feed on anything, fresh or rotten; plant, animal or fungus.   Quite passive creatures they only attack in reprisal or if deprived of a meal.   This has led to situations where they feed on sleeping or helpless adventurers. If light is brought within 30' of them, they emit a sobbing ululation audible up to 60' away for 1d2 rounds.  There is a 25% chance this will attract a wandering monster within 2d6 rounds.

(inspired by the Forge-A-Monster challenge at Monsters & Manuals)


  1. Creepy. The ululating sound just makes it worse! Nuce monster.

  2. Thanks - getting the right level of 'eew' can be a challenge. Plus interesting dungeon scavengers are always at a premium.
