  1. Delver

    In the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy role-playing game a delver is a gigantic, stony, slug-like aberration. The creature resembles an enormous cross between a centipede and a slug. It is roughly 15 feet long, 12 feet tall, and 10 feet wide, and big and bulbous. It is a gritty brown color, and has a huge stony mouth and slits for eyes. Coming from its shoulders are giant, spongy, flipper-like arms, each of which ends in six black digging nails.
