Carnivorous mollusks that have grown to gigantic proportions under the influence of Hargon's black magic. They first appeared as randomly encountered monsters in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game Dragon Warrior II. Sometimes, after defeating one, an adventure may find that a Big Slug was carrying a Medical Herb. Big Slugs are less dangerous than their more powerful, marine cousins, the Sea Slugs.
Big Slugs attack by 'biting'. While it lacks teeth, a Big Slug's tongue is covered with millions of tiny barbs that collectively have a sandpaper-like effect; it is this rough service that inflicts injury to the target. The muscular pseudopod of a Big Slug, and the sticky slime it excretes, allows the monster to scale almost any surface, including sheer ceilings and walls.
The soft tissue that comprises a Big Slug's body is easily damaged. These creatures leave a foul-smelling, slimy trail wherever they go; this 'footprint' makes them very easy to track.
Paper toweling, newsprint, white glue, hot glue, and acrylic paint.
