  • Scorpion

Location(s)[1]

--Cities and Towns--

  • Djelibeybi
  • Ephebe

--Terrains--

  • Klatch - Hashishim Caves, Necropolis, Deserts, Mountains, Plains, Savanna

Description(s)

Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.

--Djelibeybi--

Scorpion

The claws of this scorpion are tiny, designed for defence against other insects and very small predators. Its tail, however, demands much more respect due to the deadly poison it delivers.

  • Alignment: 3 degrees evil

--Ephebe--

Scorpion

It is impossible to tell much of the mood and personality of this scorpion from a cursory examination of its inscrutable carapace, but its movements and gestures suggest a zest for life equal to that of more mammalian animals. It probably wouldn't react too well to someone trying to squash it, anyway.

  • Alignment: Details needed.

--Terrains (Klatch)--

Scorpion (Necropolis, Desert, Plains, Savanna)

This tiny arthropod is more dangerous than its size suggests, thanks to the stinger full of poison raised over its back. It's a wonder that scorpions ever breed, when they have to muster up the courage to approach a mate with such a weapon poised to strike at any moment.

  • Alignment: 1 degree evil to 2 degrees good

Scorpion (Mountains)

The claws of this scorpion are tiny, designed for defence against other insects and very small predators. Its tail, however, demands much more respect due to the deadly poison it delivers.

  • Alignment: 1 degree evil to 2 degrees good

Uses

  • Poison sacs taken from (dead) scorpions (syntax: 'get sac from corpse') are an ingredient for assassins to make poison.

Special Notes

  • Scorpions can inflict a poisonous sting
  • Scorpions in Djelibeybi will join fighting even if not directly attacked
  • A very few scorpions have been observed to be aggressive
  • Ephebe scorpions may spawn as a result of searching a room
