I made this monster a while back for a previous blog.  But I want to get back into creating Dungeon World monsters so I will rehash this one.  It is based on a species of assassin beetle that attaches the husks of its victims to it’s back in a form of gruesome camouflage and armor.  It is properly named, the corpse bug.

Corpse Bug

As someone who gets the heebie-jeebies around bugs, this thing terrifies me.  Imagine if this thing stood around 3 feet tall (shudder).

The Corpse Bug - Dungeon World Monster

Here is a short clip of the actual bug in action.  Unfortunately, David Attenborough’s smooth, recognizable voice does little to suppress my heebie-jeebies.
