Picnic Cancelled Due to Ants! Empty Picnic Cancelled Due to Ants!

Post  GM_ODA Tue Jun 23, 2009 10:45 am

It is certainly no picnic to encounter THESE ants. Some the size of a bear and proportionately strong - so don't let them get hold of your PC!

No one is certain the source of these giant ants, but sages in the city suspect a mound of some sort effively an entrance to the lair or colony might be found nearby.

Adventurers are warned to be wary, where there is one ant there are more. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the giant ants.

Talk in the taverns grows with each telling, but you can rely on one fact here, ants the size of dogs or bears can carry most lone PCs off in little time. Be wary, this is not one foe but rather an entire colony!

Can anyone confirm the rumored infestation of Giant Ants?

Has anyone found their source?

Beware! These ants are the size of COWS and capable of lifting a full wagon over their heads! A bite from these mandibles can seriously hurt!

Picnic Cancelled Due to Ants! Empty Astrali Lynx repport on the Ants

Investigating the rumors of these giant ants I managed to track them to one of their mounds. It is located to the east of the road between Dohral City and the Tivook inn, although not easilly acceccible directly from the road. Further investigation of the mound reveals it is indeed one of their breeding grounds as I not only encountered worker and soldier ants, but larva aswell. It seemed as though the tunnels may extend further but I was not able to investigate all the tunnels due to local cave-in (Transisions were not active). I also found it impossible to climb back up the entrance to the mound.
I suspect there may be another exit somewhere if only the rubble from the cave-in could be removed. Considering the number of worker ants in the mound I would not be surpriced to find the tunnels cleared the next time I investigate.
I managed to leave the mound useing a magic portal with my emergency teleport wand. I only checked this one ant mound but there may be others.

The ant hills appear randomly in certain areas and will usually spawn ants until the hole is caved in, the ants are rather annoying to some but are harmless to most players unless they are new arrivals, inside the holes however is another story entirely, be careful going in
