Notes MI pg. 205 Since centipedes constantly move and wriggle during combat using the ‘Choose Location’ special effect against them becomes a Critical Only, individual segments being difficult to target under such circumstances, unless the centipede immobilizes part of its body by using it to enwrap and crush a victim. Such grapples automatically inflict damage each subsequent action it devotes to squeezing a victim. Due to its segmented body and distributed nervous system, centipedes are immune to the effects of Serious Wounds. If it suffers a Major Wound to a segment and then fails its Endurance test, the centipede is severed at that location. At this point both halves will begin to writhe madly about, forcing nearby combatants to evacuate the area or suffer a non-grappling body crush attack each round. The fatally wounded creature will take a number of rounds equal to its CON to stop thrashing and finally die, but will no longer specifically target any individual in its death throes.
