The Zeroder gets its name by psychically "eroding" victims' minds in the process of feeding off mental energies. This truly foul visage of terror will first attempt to hobble anyone fool enough to be near it with its two-foot sabre-like claws, and then rush apon him with its maw full of grappling tentacles. While the head is fully immersed, it will take 1-8 points of physical damage while the person suffers an additional 1-10 points of temporary suffocation damage. All the while, he will lose 1-6 points of WISDOM and DEXTERITY per round. If hit points deteriorate before either stat reaches zero, he will simply perish, but if not, the Zeroder will become satiated, leaving its prey a drooling, stupefied shell of life, never again able to function normally because his mind is completely "eroded."

The octopoid mass is covered in cat-like eyes and cannot be surprised by even the deftest of Thieves or Assassins. It lairs in moist, dark environs.
