Nightcrawlers are a type of underground-dwelling, centipede-like nightshade.[1]

Appearance

A nightcrawler resembles an immense centipede covered in a dead-black exoskeleton, with numerous glowing red eyes and a yawning toothy maw. It is 60 feet long and weighs 10,000 pounds.[1]

Ecology

Nightcrawlers usually reside in the deep caverns, cleansing these areas of what to them is foul life. At night, nightcrawlers often crawl up to the surface, and can spread great devastation each night before being forced to retreat by the sun. When not hunting, nightcrawlers plot how best to play their role in the nightshades' goal of exterminating life, confer with undead minions, and spy on living creatures to learn about hidden, easily-missable enclaves.[1]
