Tunnels & Trolls : Gristlegrim Room 414--The Bungbiter Room

This is one of Gristlegrim's standard rooms--100 feet cubical. It is not very interesting to look at, but in the exact center there is a huge old pirate treasure chest with a few gold coins scattered around it. When I say huge, I mean HUGE. The chest is 8 feet high, 14 feet long and about 9 feet wide. There could be an incredible amounnt of treasure inside it.

If anyone comes within 15 feet of the chest, it sprouts 4 stumpy legs, 4 woodly brown tentacles, eyes, and a great gaping fang-filled gullet, which you thought was just the lid of the chest. It's a giant bungbiter--monster rating 320. Highly carnivorous and with some cunning, it may snatch up weapons and flail about with them in its tentacles, but it's primary strategy is simply to crush and grab and throw screaming victims into its hideous mouth.

If the bungbiter is slain, roll once on the random treasure generator in the T & T rulebook to see what might be inside its stomach--that is, if the delvers think to cut it open.

This room has sliding doors on the north, west, and south walls, requiring strengths of 26, 17, and 8 respectively to open. In the northwest corner there is a stairway leading up to the room above, and down to the room below.
