The purple worm is akin to an enormous (5 feet wide and tall and 80 feet long) and bizarre earthworm.

Anatomy and appearance Edit

As its name implies, it is a deep purple color, with a pale yellow underbelly. Separating its yellow part from its purple part are hard crests going down its sides. It is well armored and segmented. One end ends in a large toothed mouth with slit-like eyes above it and dragon's ear-like limbs at the sides, and the other in a deadly stinger.

Behavior Edit

Purple worms spend their time burrowing through the underground and seek to consume any organic matter they find. Their favored and most feared method of attack is swallowing prey whole. Many groups of adventures have succumbed to such a fate, disappearing down a purple worm's gullet one after the other. They can also attack with their tail stinger, and by grabbing and grappling with prey.
