Dust Digger

Bounty hunters beware: Pathfinder has a mini-sarlacc.

A blue crystal statuette, intended as tribute, never made it to its destination.  Its bearer was devoured in the wastes, and now the statuette sits in the crop of a dust digger.

Members of the Black Asp Monastery expect their initiates—and even their guests—to be light on their feet.  A common test before graduating to the next belt is a bout on sands that hide a dust digger.

Gnolls take fosterage seriously, especially the matrilineal tribes.  So a few adventurers in desperate straits have saved their skins (or, more accurately, their livers and hearts) by begging to be adopted rather than slain.  These adoptees are often furiously resented by their new “siblings,” and while the young gnolls will not kill the adventurers, they will often go out of their way to place them in peril—like forcing them to forage amid a colony of dust diggers.
