From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

These crabs are as big as a horse. They live in underground lakes and attack everything that looks like prey. In rare cases, they are tamed by Drow to devour intruders in aquatic areas.

Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful nature check.

DC 15: These creatures are found in the underdark. They hunt for prey and can be tamed.

DC 20: A Giant Crab may be strong, but is easily distracted by food.

DC 25: A Giant Crab is cold-blooded and is weak to low temperatures.


Encounters[edit]

Giant Crabs will sometimes team up with other predators, but only if they will benefit from this. If tamed, they will obey as long there is not a particular more interesting thing at the battlefield.

A Giant Crab prefers to charge into melee and attack until it kills a foe. When that happens, it drags its prey away and starts eating. If they are tamed, they will stay until all foes are defeated.
