A Gacháya has wings, six legs, and grows to approximately 30 feet in length. In combat, the creature bites, claws, and strikes with its long, muscular tail.  Although humans find the flesh of these monsters inedible; Gacháya meat is considered a delicacy by the Shén who have introduced this dangerous alien species to countless worlds throughout their vast star empire.

Regulan bore worms, the larval form of the Regulan mind worm, are large (approximately one inch long) maggot-like creatures that hunger for living flesh.  Upon contact with a living being, bore worms will begin to burrow into the body resulting in intense pain and 1d4 hit points of damage per worn each round. The application of heat or flame to the site of entry will kill the worms; however it will also inflict 1d6 hit points of damage on the victim.
The introduction of bore worms into the ear of a subject is a dreaded and horrible torture method employed by the Vléshga. The worms will eat slowly through the victim’s skull and brain causing excruciating pain.


  1. Weren't the bore worms found on Ceti Alpha V?

  2. Ceti Alpha V? That's the laevae of the Ceti eel. They don't actually bore or eat flesh but enter one's ear and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex. These are probably just about as painful as the bore worm but also produce some unpleasant side effects like making the host susceptible to suggestion. Eventually the host goes mad with nothing to look forward to but a slow terrible death.

    Space is full of horrible worms...

  3. Shen like gachaya. Much good tastiness.

  4. Not the bore worms! Oh, Princess Aura, how you haunt my dreams :)
