Description


The Daer Wormling is a smaller version of the Daer Worm and a hostile encounter found in its cavern during Kimber's Tarkus quest.


Appearance


The daer wormling is about two feet long. Its body is covered with reddish-brown chitin, and it has dozens of spindly, clawed legs. Its head is wedge-shaped, with tiny spikes running in ridges down the sides, and a wide, toothy maw. Four beady black eyes fix on you from above the head's spikes. It's clearly hostile, and skitters back and forth as it looks for an opening.


History/Personality/Information of Note


Daer Wormlings are the presumed juvenile offspring of the Daer Worm. They are a rare, yet invasive species hailing from the their homeworld of Daerinoys.

500 years ago, the Gabilani and the Raskvel of Tarkus where suffering from overpopulation and dwindling resources. So the Gabilani scientists had to come up with a brilliant solution to save their people. Astronomers saw the neighboring planet of Daerinoys was a similar size and composition to Tarkus and rich in metal, minerals, and frozen, clean water. So the Gabilani decided to construct The World Attractor a machine that would bring Daerinoys into Tarkus' orbit so it could be terraformed into a world that could be colonized. Unfortunately, the Gabilani didn't realize they had no way to stop the planet once it started moving, causing it to crash and wipe out 80% of Tarkus' population and destroyed 90% of all of Daerinoys lifeforms and potential resources for it to be colonized.

As such, the few survivors were forced to migrate across the Stellar Tether, including the Daer Worm. This invasive species should be treated with great caution, as they have a knack for tunneling through the soil and devouring literally anything including Gabilani and Raskvel.

Interactions


The player has a chance to encounter these enemies in their lair, either individually or in groups of up to 3. They may wind up discovering the cave before meeting Kimber and the Wormlings might still appear, even after the Daer Worm is slain. Do not underestimate this enemy, for they will not hesitate to kill you should you lose to them.

Combat


To reiterate, the Daer Wormling will kill the PC if you lose to it, resulting in a Bad End. When fought, the wormling isn't that tough to the point in which it might actually be possible to kill 1 at level 2. Even if it gets to strong for the player can always flee from it. However, the wormling has a unique burrowing ability that prevents the player from leaving and temporarily renders it completely immune to all attacks. Also, it uses carapace armor similar to the Sydian Female instead of an actual Plasma Shield.
