Abdomen Cache The abdomen of a beetle carapace can be fitted with a simple hinge, allowing it to open and be used as storage. The abdomen can hold up to one Medium or smaller creature, a Large or smaller swarm, or a similar amount of cargo. The beetle or a creature stored in it can Interact to open the hatch. If the beetle carapace takes a critical hit by a bludgeoning weapon, roll a DC 10 flat check. If the check fails, the cache is breached, and its contents spill out of the beetle. The hatch can also be Forced Open (DC 22 Athletics).

Constrict [one-action] The silent stalker deals 2d8+2 piercingdamage to any number of creatures grabbed or restrained byit. Each of those creatures can attempt a basic Fortitude save with DC 24.


Created from the exoskeleton of a giant stag beetle, this mindless husk can cut a foe in half using its powerful mandibles. The abdomen of this crawling undead is empty, and more than one necromancer has used this space to hide valuable cargo.
