I had a few of these in my game. They were large, siege crossbows though, on four jointed, brass, kinda insect-like legs. Freaked the heck out of my players.

I just called them Arbalestiers (an arbalest is a kind of crossbow).

Crystaline grue
This mold (per DFM2) looks like clusters of white quartzite crystals growing in the cracks of flagstones and furniture, in the tooth- and eye-sockets of corpses, and other creepy places. If disturbed it emits an unearthly crystal chime that deafens, causes headaches, and attracts Elder Things (treat the grue as if it's a Mentalist using psionic powers to make the annoying noise).
