Tunnels & Trolls : Gristlegrim Room 233--Cockroach Room

This is a standard Gristlegrim room with doors on each of the four walls.

Giant Roach by David A. UlleryThe air has an unpleasant rotten meat smell in here. In the center of the room is a giant cockroach staring at the delvers. It has a monster rating equal to 10 times 2D6 rolled by the Game Master. DARO.

The monster roach will scuttle toward the delvers and attack. Once each combat turn another roach just like it will emerge from a hole in the floor and join the attack. This continues to happen no matter how many roaches are slain until the delvers are either all dead or they have left the room.

There is no treasure to be found in this room although enterprising delvers could perhaps carve off some of the bugs' chitinous exo-skeleton which could be used to make shields and armor slightly better than leather armor.

Dead roaches would also provide plenty of meat for the hungry.
