Continuing the series of Dynamic Lairs. Last week were the Bugbears; this week, the Caecillian.
The Beasts Below
In a network of tunnels beneath the ground is a nest of Caecillians. These 30′ long worms lurk near the surface, waiting to rear up and swallow their prey.

In the bellies of these worms is the following treasure:
- a wrought bronze necklace (120 gp), 5,000 loose electrum pieces;
- an iron flask containing a potion of Human Control, and 1,000 ep, loose;
- a copper scroll case holding a scroll of Ward against Elementals, and 5,000 ep loose.
When running this encounter, have the movie Tremors in mind.
