Monster: Stirge

Monster: Stirge

Stirges are basically giant mosquitoes. Those pose danger only in large numbers. Again, the description in the Monster Manual states that they have eight pincers, but I only see four on the picture. Letter "S" is done! There isn't much left in the book.

DR:
-
Proboscis (15): 1d-5 large piercing (KYOS: 1d-9 large piercing). Reach C. The stirge can drain the victim’s life if the victim is helpless (pinned, stunned, unconscious, etc.), grappled, or willing. If he is wearing armor, the stirge’s proboscis damage must penetrate its DR. Once the stirge has bitten through the victim’s DR, it can drain 1 HP per second from him. For every 3 HP stolen, the stirge heals 1 HP or 1 FP (his choice). It cannot raise his HP or FP above normal this way.
Attach (28): The pincers are not very strong, but the stirge has eight of them. Wrestling at DX+1 gives the stirge a ST score of 4 for the purpose of grappling. Effective skill 28 includes a +14 bonus for using 8 pincers at once. Reach C. The pincers give +2 with tasks that require a firm grip (including climbing).
