A Groshmite Swarm

Image description.

An unfortunate Gob-Oc orc having stumbled into a Groshmite swarm. The Groshmite (also referred to as the "Giant Woodboring Mite") is an insect no more than 2 to 3 nailsbreadths in size, that might not pose a threat when encountered alone, but can be a deadly danger if a whole swarm attacks. Such a mite swarm is a group of these insects existing collectively as an airborne pestillence containing thousands or more individuals. Though peaceful in general, the swarm should definitely not be stirred up. Picture from the game Mystical Empire™, used with friendly permission. Illustration drawn by Quellion.
