More information...

You see what looks to be a huge mithral snake in front of you, where its mouth should be you see what looks to be eight long tubes that spin and whine as it moves forward.

After seeing how well the chain snake did in combat house cannith went to build a better version in hopes it could save more cryen lives. The first few that where build got done about the time some people in house cannith started working on developing a construct that could change tactics on its own not when told to. Knowing that there project was close to being shut down they tried to finish the project and then make the schema for them as fast as they could. In turn they my have rushed a little two fast and made to schema’s and in turn lost one some how. Both of them contained info on how to build an elderitch machine that could mass-produce the weakest of them. Also it gives the plans on how to build the dire chain snake, and it is even said that they both have plans on how to build a type of chain snake that was never produced.


Blasting their targets with their spikes is their main form of attack, but they will let lose their chain gun when facing more then one opponent.

Spike (Ex): This ranged attack has a range of 60 feet and does 2d6+6 points of piercing damage.
