Dark Sun - Destiny and sacrifice
quick little bugs with a piercing bite.
these little dark green critters like to pierce a hole in someone’s soft tissue and burrow themselves deep inside the body where it feeds on its surroundings and lays eggs. Eggs usually hatch one by one every 2-3 days and they can feed off of one body for week until the person dies. The beetles also have special properties. They can feed off of arcane and elemental energies. Whenever the host tries to use magic, the magic immediately fails and the beetles feast. This makes them immune to these forms of magic.
