Monster Profile #20: Drow Scorpion

Monster Profile #20: Drow Scorpion -

The folks over at Turbine and Dungeons and Dragons Online have released the 19th in their series of monster profiles. These profiles give potential players an opportunity to Turbine has released their 20th Monster Profile. This time they highlight the Drow Scorpion.

Drow Scorpion
Creature Type: Aberration
Environment: Any
Attack: Claws, sting
Special Qualities: Poison, spell-like abilities
Organization: Solitary, pair, or nest (4+)

The drow of Xen’drik worship an aspect of the Mockery that they call Vulkoor, and combine the mortification of the flesh popular amongst cults of the Mockery with primitive beast worship of arachnids – specifically scorpions. The scarification the devout undergo seems to be pleasing to the Mockery, and it is said that especially pious worshippers may be rewarded with transformation into a servitor of Vulkoor.

These servitors are a centaur-like hybrid of a giant scorpion and a drow. The torso of a drow emerges from the body of a scorpion, but pincers replace the arms. Reported abilities include a powerful constitution damaging poison and numerous spell-like abilities. If the reports from the drow are to be believed, most of these aberrations were presumably powerful clerics or wizards prior to their elevation in status, so it is wise to expect conventional spellcasting ability as well.

If you should ever encounter one of these creatures, take standard precautions against poisons and do what you can to capture it alive. The academy will pay a great deal for the chance to study one of these “scorpion drow” so their actual origins, strengths, and weaknesses can be properly determined.
