Found in wilderness areas far from any sort of civilization, house beetles are inscctoids with translucent carapaces that are the size of a house, standing 35 feet high.

They attack pests by either kicking at them or surreptitiously positioning themselves over the largest cluster of pests (perhaps over 2 or 3 rounds) then abruptly dropping down upon them, it's legs retracting into it's body carapace. To resolve this attack, have all targets make a roll-under Luck check — the worst 1d3 checks are those stuck under the bug when it hits the ground, taking 1d24 damage. However, if any of the checks come up as a tie ("I made it by 4!" "So did I!"), then the number rolled on the d3 is reduced by 1.

The creature's carapace may be weaker when it's near to molting.
