Motholplex (3.5e Creature)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: 100 hit dice, and all it can do is a few melee attacks and wobble around in the air. Does not explain what the "bug swarm" is (there isn't one in the MM, and none that are there are suitable for a CR 40 encounter). An Epic level party would cream this monster in a few rounds.


You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Motholplex peers over a GIANT tree.

You see a giant creature that looks like a mix between a moth, scorpion, and tick. It lumbers towards you apparently not acknowledging your presence.

Motholplex's origins are unknown, but it is said that she is the mother of all insects, and created all insects. She is one of the most powerful creatures in existence and usually does not attack something without provocation. Motholplex is basically a mixture of a moth, scorpion, and tick.

Combat[edit]

Motholplex has no set battle sequence since it is rarely in battle, so when in battle it is random array of attacks and spells.

(Ex)Poison: Fort DC 90, initial damage 2d8 Str, secondary damage 2d6 Con

(Su)Summon Swarm (bugs): Once every 1d4 rounds Motholplex can summon a swarm of bugs (Monster Manual) that lasts for 1d6 rounds before disappearing unless it is destroyed beforehand.
