A sizable slithering eating machine with a taste for carrion. The loathsome creature is known throughout the land as a carrion-eater common to battlefields and sewage drains. While the worm's preferred prey are dwarves or tender human children, it will attack and devour anything it thinks might be vulnerable or tasty.
Some of the underworld leaders in Venetia keep pits filled with Crypt Worms in order to get rid of "evidence."
Crypt worms begin as finger-length wrigglers, but with enough time - and corpses - they can grow to their full, towering troll-crushing size.
The Worm creeps up, and rears its head It begins to feed, before you're dead It spits in your eyes, continues to close It chews you up, from head to toes And when its bile eats through your clothes, and its mouths strip off your flesh Too bad that you' re still alive!
~Childhood rhyme used by Sect children to choose the victim of a game
It speaks with the voice of a tomb.
