Dripper
rating: 0+x

By Lord RasputinLord Rasputin

The dripper looks like a raindrop or a drop of water. It hangs on dungeon ceilings or tree branches, waiting for an animal to move under it. When it does, it drops onto the animal, gets its nutrients through damage, then scurries off to do it to the next one. There will typically be 2d drippers in any hex they are watching.
