A chainworm appears as a silver-scaled caterpillar 8'-10' long with a razor sharp barb on its tail.
A chainworm can spin a web that covers an area of 5 ft. by 5 ft. in one round. Chainworms do not spin these webs at victims, rather they cover an area and wait for prey to become trapped in the near metal strength strands. Once trapped, a chainworm moves in and attacks its prey.
