Dwarf Beetle Tactics[edit]

Dwarf Beetles will fight to the death using gore until bloodied; once bloodied further incapacitate their target with dirt fling until they eventually approach the blinded creature and pull it into the dark to finish it off.

Dwarf Beetle Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful Nature check.

DC 15: A large muscular beetle that inhabits Gardmore Abbey

DC 20: Large beetles known as dwarf beetles for their power. They live close to Assassin Vines and like to blast swathes of dirt at intruders.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Dwarf Beetles will only willingly interact with other beetles, though they have been captured and trained to work alongside other beasts. Dwarf Beetles will usually live in colonies from 20 to 100, though they will usually send a small scouting party to investigate intruders in the hopes of finding an easy meal before rallying the entire colony.
