Eye Stingers hover up to a metre off the floor in complete contradiction to the laws of physics. They are quite large, spherical, have dark green scaly skin and are covered with long, poisonous spines. A huge, single staring eye gazes from the centre of the creature. This eye has a hypnotic gazer, which is used to entrance prey into a stupor allowing for the Eye Stinger to impale its victim on its spines. The poison does not kill and will only paralyse the victim, leaving them to the mercy of other creatures. The Eye Stinger will feed on the left overs. However, an Eye Stinger present in the desert city of Vatos will turn the victim into a 'gargoyle' similar to the ones on the Vatos city walls, suggesting it turns its victims to stone. This particular Eye Stinger is apparently used by the Serpent Guards of Vatos as both a security guard and a way of making new decorations for the city. [1]

Special AbilitiesEdit

On encountering an Eye Stinger an opponent must successfully Test their Luck or else they will become entranced by the eye. The gaze can be disrupted by showing the eye a pure black object such as a shard of polished onyx. The Eye Stinger will be unable to focus on such an object allowing its potential victim to escape. When an Eye Stinger is struck the creature will burst and splatter all those in range with a sticky acidic liquid causing 2 points of damage to stamina.[2]
