Monster: Rust Monster

Monster: Rust Monster

The infamous bane of all adventurers! This metal-smelling insectoid (on four legs, according to the picture) can rust metal with just a touch. Finally, I found an excuse to use the feelers from GURPS Powers: Enhanced Senses and smell-based Detect. I love sensory abilities.

Rusting Antennae (13): The rust monster has specialized antennae that are not armored, but provide a normal sense of touch. The antennaes allow the creature to feel things one yard away and can be targeted at -6 (comparable to eye-stalks described on p. B34). In addition, the rust monster can touch a metal object with its antenna to deal it 5d corrosion damage. It can parry with its antennaes.
