Note: This creature was originally published in Tome of Horrors, p. 253.

This creature is a 3-foot long blackish-green eel with a large downward facing mouth lined with sharpened teeth. Land lampreys can be found in all but the hottest and the coldest environments. They prefer the dark and dampness of the subterranean world and so are most often encountered there.

Bite (13): 1d-4 cutting, but once attached, it takes a Quick Contest of ST to pull it off. The land lamprey gets a +8 to this roll, and pulling it off causes 1d-4 cutting all over again. Once attached, it drains 1d-3 HT each turn until it has drained 4 HT, at which point it detaches itself and slithers away. Reach C.
