The body of a mature purple worm is 5 feet in diameter and 80 feet long, weighing about 40,000 pounds. The creature has a poisonous stinger in its tail.

Combat

In battle, a purple worm forms into a coil 20 feet in diameter, biting and stinging anything within reach.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a purple worm must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can attempt to swallow the foe the following round.

Poison (Ex): Injury, Fortitude DC 25, initial damage 1d6 Str, secondary damage 2d6 Str. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Swallow Whole (Ex): A purple worm can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of a smaller size than itself by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+12 points of crushing damage plus 8 points of acid damage per round from the worm's gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 17). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. A Gargantuan worm's interior can hold 2 Large, 8 Medium, 32 Small, 128 Tiny, or 512 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

Skills: A purple worm has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

Out of Character: I thought about writing a science fiction story, set in the not to distant future. Then considered the possibilities, what would happen, to a disillusioned, and almost retired detective whom decided to go on a holiday? But this was no ordinary holiday, but a utopia for the rich, those seeking fame and fortune. Not on earth, where they were a failure, but on earths nearest neighbor Mars.


Mark had only one thought, to get away. They said Mars had become a utopia for easy money. Facing redundancy he had no regrets about leaving Earth. The spacecraft taxied down the runway, as its engines roared into life.

"Is this your first flight into space?" said a slender brunette sitting next to him.
"Yes, I’m going to Mars," Mark replied.
"Well this will be my third trip, you soon get used to it."
"What work do you do on Mars?" Mark asked.
"I work as a Chemist at Pascal Enterprise."
