Korghoi

(JumpingJiminy)

Basic Information

Also known as the 'Khitan Death Worm', the Korghoi is believed to exist somewhere deep within the deserts of Khitai*, but is very difficult to track due to it's ability to burrow beneath the Khitan sands. However, the natural habitat of the Korghoi - a desert landscape - presents an interesting conundrum; how do Korghoi survive with such a lack of food in an arid environment? Perhaps the Death Worms have some other food source to exploit?

Appearance

A literal translation of the name Korghoi is "blood-filled intestine", which is an uncanny description of this bizarre creature. This giant dull-red earthworm grows to almost 5 feet in length, with a toughened, fat segmented body and a dark black maw. It is also rumoured that some even larger specimens may be found, hidden deep within uncharted desert dunes.

Shocking

The Korghoi is a carnivorous creature, which catches it's prey by bursting forth from it's sandy domain and discharging a high-voltage electric shock capable of paralyzing a Human*. The victim is completely paralyzed for d4 Rounds if they roll Strength or under on 6d6. Regardless of whether paralysis occurs, both Attack & Defence are also reduced by 6 for the following d6 Rounds. Once paralyzed, the victim is devoured whole, then dissolved quickly within the Korghoi as it returns beneath the burning sands.

Acid-Spewing

The Death Worm can also spray a highly corrosive acid from it's tail, which will melt and kill any corporeal non-magical creature on contact, without magical intervention.
