Skin a beetle pincer
The sand beetle appears to be some sort of giant insect. It looks a little like some misshapen scorpion, but the tail on it is not as long as a scorpion's would be, and it flares like the tail of a lobster rather than ending in a poison sting. The segmented body is wide, supported by six short multi-jointed legs. A dull red chitinous shell covers most of its body, and a broad carapace protects its head. Two massive claws provide the creature with formidable weapons.

Other information

  • Beetles are puncture resistant rather than puncture immune since being converted to BCS.
  • Example of a beetle's poison gas attack with the defender protected by Purify Air (207).
A sand beetle rears up momentarily and hisses loudly.  A huge cloud of green gas pours from an orifice on the creature's underside!
The gas washes over you and you calmly breathe it in like it was pure air.
