  • Aggressive: Usually attack on sight. Always attack intruders within 30’ of their hive.
  • Die after attacking: On a successful sting attack, a killer bee dies.
  • Poison: Causes death (save vs poison).
  • Lodged stinger: Inflicts 1 damage per round, as the stinger works its way in. A round can be spent to remove it.
  • Queen: A 2HD queen lives in the hive. The queen does not die when she stings.
  • Guards: At least 10 bees (4 or more of which have 1HD) remain in or near the hive to protect the queen.
  • Honey: Magical honey (around 2 pints) may be found in the hive. It heals 1d4 hit points if eaten (in its entirety).
