Description :

The webbird is not actually an avian; it is in fact a severely mutated form
of arachnid. It is found in semi-tropical lands, usually inhabiting the
fringes of woodlands so it can seek prey in nearby open ground. A webbird
appears to be a beakless bird, about raven-sized, with long feathered wings
and a long spikey tail. Careful inspection will reveal a slitted mouth with
hard, sharp ridges for biting and a drooping chest appendage about 4 inches

Food consists of small flying creatures. When large, warm-blooded creatures
come within sight, a flock of webbirds will take to the air. They then gather
together and make low passes over the heads of the intended victims. Each
webbird can emit a 7-12 foot long strand of sticky, inflammable web, once
per round. The effectiveness of a flock's attack is determined by rolling a
1d6 and adding 1 for every 6 webbirds in the flock. The area of attack is 12
feet by 12 feet square. Attacks are a follows:

Die Score Result

1-3 ineffective attack

4-6 1 creature ensnared for 2-8 rounds

7-10 2-5 creatures ensnared for 2-5 rounds

11 and up Entire area is covered with webs, and all therein are held fast
for 2-5 rounds.

A strength score of 13 will shorten immobilization time by 1 round and
strength of 14 by 2 rounds. Alcohol dissolves the strands, 1 wine flask
being sufficient to free 1 man-sized creature. As soon as a victim is held
fast, 1-4 webbirds will alight upon it. Next round the webbirds will insert
their chest appendage in exposed flesh and inject 2-8 eggs. Grubs hatch from
the eggs in 30-60 minutes, and each grub eats its way into the host and
inflicts 1 wound per round (per grub), eventually killing it. Fledgling
webbirds will emerge from a corpse within 2 hours after the victim has died.
Pain from grubs is excruciating.

Webbirds shun flame and fire. An individual with a torch will be safe from
attack as the webbirds will avoid him and attack unprotected creatures. A
webbird can be caught in a person's hand (requiring a successful hit) and
crushed then and there. The mutant will always inflict a dying bite
( 1 wound) upon its slayer.

Webbird feathers are metallic gray with greenish hues at wingtips and tails.
Underbellies are bright gray, shading to light green near the tail.
