Busy road builders might unknowingly use cobble mites in construction.

Cobble mites resemble squarish stones a few inches across with mouths like split geodes. Though indolent and harmless alone, they’re dangerous in large groups.

Characters looking to keep a cobble mite as a pet can usually buy one in many large cities for 1 gp. Those who search for one in the wild must hunt carefully and risk finding enough cobble mites lairing together to form a cobbleswarm. A character with a familiar can choose a cobble mite, which must have the burrower familiar ability.
