A short while after the catastrophe occurred, a huge worm burrowed out from beneath the Erovan Institute and bored up through the floor of the West Tower of the Gatehouse, securing itself by its conical head to the bottom of the fifth floor. Its tentacled mass burst through the barracks on the second floor and, using slick black tentacles, it began eating the brains of drowsy Erovan soldiers.
Slugpuppets are the result of this creature’s tentacled love. Every brain-plumbed creature grows a mouthful of orange frills and, as they mature, a back full of huge, blistering sacs. The later-stage slugpuppet, called Chrysalis Guard, is a shifty foe with a pair of stinging, binding orange tentacles of its own.
