Possibly related to the ankheg, the remorhaz are huge, arctic-dwelling centipede-like insects. They sport both toothed mouths and sharp mandibles. They are pale blue-white, but pulse red with the heat its body produces. Some large arctic-dwelling beings train, entice, or magically control these creatures to guard their lairs.

Bite (14): 3d impaling. Reach C.
Heat Aura: Enraged remorhaz (i.e., when it's Berserk) generate heat of such high temperature that anyone who touches them takes 3d burning damage (No Incendiary). Items that touch the remorhaz, including striking weapons, take this damage as well unless protected from heat.
Swallow Whole: If the remorhaz can successfully grapple someone it has bitten, it can swallow that person whole (Binding 32; Engulfing; 1d corrosion damage per second). It can only swallow creatures of SM 0 or smaller.

Combat Effectiveness Rating: 197 (OR 170 and PR 27).
Notes: Remorhaz never associate with each other unless they’re mating—if there are several in the area, they might all attack a person at once, but they wouldn’t work together.
