I know I'm biased -- after all, I have a scorpion on my desk -- but I think Monster is absolutely awesome. He's beautiful, he looks positively prehistoric, and he gives me one of the rare excuses to use the word "toxicognaths" -- that's the term for his bitey bits, which aren't mouthparts; they're modified legs. And toxic, of course.

Interestingly, these have a number of regional color morphs, one of which is red with a black head and tail -- almost an inverse of Monster's coloring.

Also, I'm quite happy that I live in South Carolina and don't find these guys in my house. The closest I've come was a Scutigera coleoptrata, which is not very close.

Love these squiggly guys! I just ran a session a couple days ago in which I sub'd one in place of a Carrion Crawler in the old AD&D dungeon I was working from.

(Incidentally, TFT pairs nicely with these late 70's era D&D modules, as TFT's high level of risk and dungeon times keep the excitement dialed up to 11 no matter what the situation!).

Super neat.

I definitely have to work one of those into my next game. Just to keep the elves on their toes.
