Brain Grub

Brain grubs are vicious worms that reach roughly 8” to 1’ in length.  They are ferocious and deadly.  A favorite past-time in many Hubris cities is Brain Grub fights- pitting these creatures against one another with high stakes betting.  A fair bit of coin can be made to those brave, or foolish, enough to be Brain Grub breeders.  Brain Grubs have three large mandibles that they use to pierce the skull of their victim, while their small circular mouth is filled fibrous tentacles that penetrate the victim’s brain- taking it over.  A brain grub that critically strikes a target burrows into the brain of the target.  The target must succeed at a DC 12 Reflex save or be taken over by the brain grub.  The target is now a mindless husk that can perform simple actions like walk, breathe, clumsily attack, etc.  Each day the target permanently loses 1 Intelligence as their brain matter is consumed.  When they reach 0 Intelligence, they are dead and the brain grub moves on.
