"A fool trusts his eyes. A wise man fears every rock is a deepstalker"
Possibly the strangest of all the creatures found in the Deep Roads is the deepstalker. Tezpadam, as the dwarves call them, hunt in packs, generally by burrowing underground and then striking when their prey is in their midst.Stalkers come in several types. Spitters have venom glands and can spit secretions that slow or injure their prey. Jumpers hurl themselves at their targets, knocking them down and making the kill easier. The most common variety scares its prey, leaving the unfortunate victim helpless against the rest of the pack.

The deepstalker leader is a larger variant of the deepstalker. You can distinguish it from the normal deepstalkers as it is slightly bigger, has a darker color and a striped pattern across his back. The leaders often are accompanied by the smaller deepstalkers, and will freely use all the deepstalker abilities.
