Scarab of Death[edit]

This small pin appears to be any one of the various beneficial amulets, brooches, or scarabs. However, if it is held for more than 1 round or placed within a soft container within 1 foot of a warm, living body for 1 minute, it changes into a horrible burrowing beetlelike creature. The thing tears through any leather or cloth, burrows into flesh, and reaches the victims heart in 1 round, causing death. A Reflex save (DC 25) allows the wearer to tear the scarab away before it burrows out of sight, but he or she still takes 3d6 points of damage. The beetle then returns to its scarab form. Note that placing the scarab in a container of hard wood, ceramic, bone, ivory, or metal prevents the monster from coming to life and allows for long-term storage of the item.
