Notes The Mind that Crawls is over 3 metres across. From the rear of the horrific quivering massextends a further 10 metres of spinal cord with which it pushes itselfalong.Tactics: ambush hang motionless from shadows above, leaving a trail of putrid slime behindit. From this inverted position it patiently awaits adventurers,lowering its spinal cord to strike the rearmost explorer.On a successful surprise attack, it uses both the KillSilently and its Grapple ability to wrap about the neckof the victim and drag them up into the dark shadows of its concealment.Only then do other party members get a chance to spot the camouflagedBrawn that Crawls. If successful they must then resist the pulsatinghorror of its terrifying appearance. The undead brain will then dropupon those with the courage to stand and fight, crushing one or two ofthe fools with its bulk (Trample ability). If defeated in battle, it cannot bekilled but is rendered immobile, dreaming thoughts ofcataclysmic vengeance until its zombie worshippers feed it enoughcerebral tissue to heal +1 Action points for Multi headed Source: Fenix 2021 01
