These oversized bugs can resemble any manner of normal insect grown to dog-sized stature or larger and possessing carapaces with an iridescent sheen. Not to be confused with other giant insects such as beetles, flies, and locusts, buggus are the product of their underworld diet instead of a species unto themselves. Feeding on the strange fungi found beneath the earth’s surface, normal pests can grow to tremendous size, especially when their fungal diets have sprouted near rich vaedium deposits. The eerie radiations that give the buggus their size also grants them a 25% resistance to magic. Buggus attack in swarms, often overwhelming their prey with unending waves of their chittering and susurring bodies.

The same shopping trip that netted me the toy snail that became the bale snail also resulted in two tubes of plastic bugs marketed as educational tools. Having watched Peter Jackson's remake of King King KONG a few weeks before this game session, I decided that a swarm of oversized bugs was needed and promptly dropped them into the caves the party was exploring.


  1. King King, a giant ape with the Burger King mascot head?

  2. The crazy bugs and the batshit natives were the best parts of that movie, including Naomi Watts.

    Quiet, you!
