Scutimorphs: actual size?
This may be a bit pedantic, but as I prepare to GM my first campaign tomorrow, I'm trying to figure out how to describe the scutimorphs and the False Woods found in the core rulebook adventure "The Beale of Boregal".
The creature section of the book describes these giant millipedes as being 6-8' tall and twice as long. But the artists' rendition shows creature whose length is at least 10 times its height.
Assuming the bird in the image is a raven, I'd estimate the creature’s head to be almost 6’ across.
Furthermore, the tubes in the False Woods are described as being 10’ in diameter and 20’ tall. That means a circumference over 30’. To be wrapped around such a tube enough times to make it look like a giant tree, the critter would have to be 80’ long at a bare minimum.
Do you all think this is just a case of careless description and bad math, or am I missing something?
I'm considering just making the tubes much smaller in diameter, since it doesn't seem to have a direct impact on the story.
